"Well," said one old Witch, who was actually a little over Elora's age, but not of the Tìlyach lineage, "I knew you were many things, but I didn't know that coward was among them. Death can be a friend. At my time of life, you realize this." She spat. "You say you want to make reparations for your crimes, Elora? Well, you can't do that if you choose death. I was going to vote to summon the Morrigan. But now? Now I want to see you live and set things as right as you can."
