The young man needed only one glance at the body stretched over the stone table, white hair spilling over white stone to pool on the cold marble floor. He turned to the Emperor standing beside him and in an act of conscious violence, asked, "What did you do to her?"
Compelled by the direct question to answer, Argent Star, Northern Emperor and Guardian of Truth, said, "Nothing." Like Silent Chain, the younger man, he wore a human shape; he had just come from retrieving the body, and hadn't wanted to alarm the natives. "Nothing. She did this to herself... as usual."
