Subj: The Rise and Fall of Entities

In the year 32 AM, visions began to haunt the mortals of Aetherius. Unsure if they were images of a possible future, or threats from the dream morphae who had sent them out into the world. Irritated with the attempted mental intrusions, the ascendari of Conquest spoke out, giving fair warning for the morphae to cease in its antics. Unafraid, despite melding to the temple of Rashirmir, the morphae continued, and suffered the wrath of the ascendari Hastati, who flew to the temple and ripped the mechanical heart of the morphae Dianos from the wall, crushing it and releasing the essence back into the world.

Mind clouded by victory, the ascendari then challenged the world, threatening the lives of all entities who would stand in the way of Conquest - a challenge met by Svorai, the morphae of the Primal Spirit. Deep within their temple in the Heartlands, Svorai had been gathering more and more power as the Primal Spirit's reach grew. Blessed now with the hard, coldness of the tundra, she struck preemptively at the ascendari, using the arctic winds to force her deep within the temple on enemy territory.

There a battle was had, one the ascendari was not expecting, as the morphae had her immediately on guard. At each other they flew, slashing with claw and sword alike. Then, something happened that the ascendari could not explain, a phenomena she was not expecting. In a moment of distraction, Svorai struck out with a spear of ice, piercing the heart and chest of the ascendari.

As the ice slowly overcame her dying form, the morphae whispered to Hastati how nature outlasts all.

So ended the lives of two entities this day: The morphae Dianos and the ascendari Hastati, their essence released back into the world, but to what end?

Penned by my hand on the 17th of Ferinus, in the year 32 AM.
