Forever a drifter.

After watching his party mates crush the dragon eggs, the initiated untrained Paladin begins to wonder if what they are doing is morally right. While the rest of his party did their business, killing a powerful dragons, but losing a member in the process, he wonders after they beg a resurrection off him whether he, they, or anyone is right to cast damning judgement on others. Especially they defenseless life that once lay within those eggs. Because dragons are evil they children inherently are? What proof is there? And even if so, every life deserves the chance to defend itself right?

He doesn't know if he wants to follow this trope of death as they leave the Veil of Life to head towards New Hope in the Northlands, but his Geas compells him. Until, however, Charles, his bonded spirit, now taking the form of a pegasus, stops him and demands a quest from him. The Geas seems to slacken in the Paladin's own mind, and he's desiring some time to think as well, so they go, wordlessly, opposite the party.

Same time passes. He's not aware of how much because when he goes to find the sun where he expects it, low hanging in a firey sky, it is instead directly overhead. Thinking back, it appears to be where they started the journey. Looking around, they appear to still be in the Machine's Graveyard, but he finds it difficult to perceive any individual details about him. His vision seems a fair bit muted perhaps, something similar to the fog of war that sometimes overtakes him in a battle, drawing his senses closer and inward.

Finally, they stop. Below him is a gigantic corpse. Hunting for features, he recognizes this creature as one of the creatures that assaulted his own farming community outside of Three Rivers, many moons ago, and many miles west.

"Where is the Soldier?" it is a question and a demand. In his own voice, and in Chaz's, and in Someone Else's.
