Immortals / Kassieti

The Great Library is vast and nobody is entirely sure where the bird came
from or how it got there. Some believe it a piece of Nercuros, broken free
from the moon during one of the many meteoroid impacts upon its surface.
This piece eventually fell to a remote part of Aabahran and was eventually
covered by time deep below the surface. Even buried as it was, the call

bench to build to be made into a statue for the library that was being built
to the east. So he set upon the rock, chiseling pieces off until it took

At first, it sat in the chambers of the Historians. After a time it was
passed down to the Academicians. Eventually it made its way in the back
corners of the library to gather dust. It sat there feeling the shifts of
balance, back and forth until the balance tipped often enough. The Long
Night turned to be the final straw and the statue moved ...
