★ When a spirit is drained of Lifeblood.
★ Myriad believes a spirit is Fused to another spirit(s) in order to return to the Land of the Harvest; Troika believes a spirit enters into the Rest forevermore.
The one you follow decides the roads you take.
★ One of two sons of the Firstking; Eron the Prince of Doves, and Ambrosine the Prince of Ravens.
★ Ruler of a realm.
Peace beyond all understanding awaits.
★ Troikans believe a spirit enters into this state of absolute tranquillity after Second-death, forever separated from the realms…with a few exceptions.
And so the dead shall rise again.
★ Once every year, Troika holds a vote; one spirit within the Rest is brought back to spirit-life.
★ The winner must exit the Rest even if he or she wishes to remain.
Justice, equality, freedom of choice.
★ The realm of Light, ruled by the Secondking Eron, the Prince of Doves.
★ Untouched by gloom, where hard work isn’t an expectation but a way of life, equality isn’t an ideal but a standard and fear isn’t a treasured friend but a hated foe…logic always trumps emotion…people are governed by a strict set of rules, and violators are punished.
★ Motto: Light Brings Sight.
Without hope, there can be no joy.
★ A human who fails to make covenant with Troika or Myriad before Firstdeath.
★ Damned to spend the Everlife inside Many Ends.
All who enter are welcome.
★ A doorway leading into and out of an Everlife realm.
