The Undertaker tilts his head at Arthur's approach, then bows his head as if accepting the words of greeting. There is a chirring sound, perhaps of amusement? Or maybe appreciation.

Eldest son... you do not... remember with your mind. You remember with... your bones.

Another clicking, chirring sound, which is definitely amusement this time.

You know of... the Chimia... They were the first... and now are the last. The Chimareu... the ones who loved fire... they left Ynoch. The Chimoraa... they were her beloved... and the Chimeko... they stole many things... It cost them dearly. Which story...?

Arthur smiles weakly at the large Corvigere before him, not fully understanding what the corvigere was trying to advise him to do.

If I could remember with my bones, Undertaker, I would.

He sets out an inkwell on a flat stone nearby, situating himself on the ground as he prepares to begin writing. He takes note of the three names, the metal tip of his quill scratching across the rough parchment page.

Tell me of the Chimoraa first, father. I think the people need to hear more of Ynoch's love. Thievery and punishment would probably not be the best place to start...

The Chimoraa were closest... to their mother, more than any other. While most chimia... fly in the branches... the Chimora embraced her roots.

The first chimoraa... was stillborn in her fruit... She was buried in... her mother's grave. Then she opened Ynoch's tree... and walked out, alive. This is why... the tree has a hollow.

Arthur's hand flies across the parchment as The Undertaker speaks. There's not much to write but Arthur manages to get every word written down

I'm sure Ynoch rejoiced when her child stepped out of her trunk, hm?

Arthur smiled up at The Undertaker, pausing in his scribbles for a moment

What became of the Chimoraa after they were all born?

They lived in the grove... They were fiercely loyal... and never left their mother... for any reason.

When The Senescence occurred... They elected to remain behind... And when we returned... they were all gone. Not even Ynoch could protect them from those first storms... which we fled.

Arthur sits in silence for a moment. Letting the information wash over him.

It was brave of them to stay behind. I'd like to think that their sacrifice meant something... but in the end, so many lives were lost during the Senescence, so much ancient knowledge left in the past as well...

He tapped the feathery end of his quill against his lips, lost in thought for a moment.

I would have loved to see Orrison before the catalyst broke this planet.

Scrying... is the realm of divinity, for rrex and chimoraa.

The Undertaker speaks solemnly, like they took Arthur's musings for a serious wish.

Arthur lets out a soft chuckle at the Undertaker's words.

No, I didn't mean in those terms... say, did the Chimoraa have divine fysa instead of ash like their ki-

Arthur trails off as some displeased shouting is heard from behind him. He turns his head around, flattening his ears against his skull as he sees what caused those yells.

Iphae makes his way down the tunnel, bypassing those waiting to speak with the Undertaker next. His eyes roam around the room. Taking in all the details. It was quite unimpressive.

He came to a halt in front of the Undertaker, standing next to the kneeling Arthur. He gave the Undertaker a look over, obviously sizing him up and judging him quite intensely.

For a supposed God that walks among men you're not all that awe-inspiring you know that?

He cocks his head to one side, a smug grin settling on his lips.

Stories of you leave much to be desired once you catch a glimpse of the real thing. It's sad, really.

Arthur sat there silently, his head sinking deeper into the fluff of his neck the more Iphae spoke. He did not want to be a part of this.

As Iphae cocks his head, the Undertaker tilts his head in the opposite direction, mirroring him but more in curiosity than ego.

Ellei-ai'rii... I welcome you home. I am thankful... that in our first meeting... I may greet your flesh... and not your bones.

It pleases me... to hear that you have heard stories of me... such as to leave you desiring... And I am sorry for your loss... as no breadth of divinity... nor act of conquest... may fill the hole that exists in your heart.

Iphae is silent for a good beat or two. Needless to say that was not the response he was expecting. Not in the slightest. The agitation passed through him like a wave. First his neck feathers bristled soon followed by his tail whipping back and forth against the stone floor.

Have you got feathers blocking up your ears or are you just one dense motherfucker? Maybe hanging around all these corpses made your brain rot away a little bit too, eh?

Arthur visibly cringed as Iphae spoke. While listening to these insults he actually found it in himself to stand up to the larger leyr.

L-Listen here… There’s no reason to speak to The Undertaker like that, I’m quite certain he hasn’t done anything to cause you harm-

Iphae's ear flicked as Arthur spoke. Then, oh so slowly, he took a step back to glare over at Arthur. The sheer intensity of the look Iphae gave him was enough for Arthur to cut himself off.

I don’t remember asking you for your opinion, old bird. Why don’t you collect your mindless scribbles and get out of here before I toss you out on your ass myself?

Arthur inhaled deeply before he actually began to collect his things, carefully stuffing as much as he could into his bag. If things went south he didn’t want to be here. He also didn’t intend on getting beaten by some leyr he didn’t know.

With Arthur being quiet again Iphae turned his attention back to the Undertaker.

I’m not here for your sympathy, Undertaker. I’ve got questions for you and you’re going to answer them. Yeah?
