"Seven disciples of seven lands; each of a people different in brand. All seven among them sits the one only hero; for in the end each one of them dead, but up from the ashes the eighth will ascend. A kingdom rewriten, a land sent again, into the flames of demon's consent. We of the pillar, we of the sea, we of grasslands where no gods see. Our devious actions, our treacherous discend down from the outers and into the end."
