The Puppet General
Nirios: Something... something powerful is coming through!
Nirios: You've stood with us against Wargoth's forces before. Will you stand with us now?
Nirios: Your plane of fire.
The Hunt Begins
Nirios: Your mind is strong...but you can still be overpowered. We have to fix that.
Who are you?
Nirios: I'm Nirios A'ravi, Etaos' brother. I'm the one keeping the Black Prism above Atrea, engulfing the city in everlasting night.
Nirios: I'm also an information broker, and one of the unaels.
Ask about Unaels
Nirios: We are the "Chosen Ones", known as unaels. On our home world, when one of our people was respected by the community...
Nirios: ...fulfilled his destiny or had a great power within himself, he becamed the Unael.
Nirios: Then ascendants performed a ritual to "ascend" his very existence. Then he could either become one with The Empress...
Nirios: ...or materialize one of the zodiac signs and descend back onto Somoroah.
Nirios: If he chose to descend, the zodiac sign he took became his weapon. If you wish to speak to the ascended ones...
Nirios: ...you have to go to The Empress' chambers.
Nirios: She is the voice of the atealans. She is a nation within one being. She is the Ayar Lat'quah. She is The Empress.
Nirios: I can't hold the barriers much longer. The only saving grace is that I don't have to shield Atrea and keep the black prism afloat.
Nirios: We meet again.
Song of the Ateala
Nirios: A simple conversation will not be too taxing.
Nirios: It is. It is the Song of the Ateala— the history of our people, from the very beginning, to the present.
Nirios: Indeed. It is a great honor, and one that reminds us that our actions will be heard by generations to come.
Nirios: Perhaps in full. However, it is common for any Ateala to learn the relevant passages related to their family and profession.
Nirios: Fight well, <Character>.
Arrival of the Vind
Nirios: Much appreciated.
Nirios: It is not our place to agree to promise aid.
Nirios: The Empress must be consulted in any future endeavors. However, we will do our best to plead your case.
Song in Our Hearts
Nirios: Please don't fraternize with the enemy, <Character>.
Nirios: Correct. My brother and I are ready. We shall bring this beast down to your level.
Nirios: We will subdue the creature. It will be temporary, and the barrier will fall while the monster is held down.
Nirios: For The Empress!
Nirios: Ayar Lat'quah!
Nirios: She remains but is not... herself?
Nirios: Yet she is.
Nirios: She has withdrawn, of sorts. Reverted? It is hard to describe what I am sensing.
Nirios: I feel the loss of many. But not loss. Freedom? But they were not chained.
Nirios: Or her tears begin to fall.
