Denial.He is dead! How can he be dead? How is this possible? We are the divine offspring of the creators of this universe - how could it be possible for us to die at the hands of mortals? And if he can die...can I? His energy was derived from darkness and death, but mine springs from light and life. Surely that means I cannot die, even though he could. And I must not, for if I do, then what will happen to those under my care? Though Zaros is gone, his legacy - at least - will remain. Those who followed him are left with all that he gave them, all that he taught them. Yet my sudden departure would soon see the elves follow me into oblivion. I must ensure that I will have time enough to undo what I have done, and wean the elves off their dependency on me.
