_The Immortals of the world are of unknown, and questionable number. I do not of course make mention of our beloved Gods who rule over us and walk among us as they rightly should. I speak of the Spirits and the Eir’ Enai. No one knows how many Spirits truly exist, but I believe it could easily be proven that the are in the hundreds. They are far, far older than even those we worship… _
-From the Lectures of Led Entyer, Acolyte of Laris and follower of the High Priest Tyssal
You know who they are, don’t you? They are the Endless. And anyone might be one of them. Oh, sure, they seem normal enough at first. But you see, that’s the trick. They look like us, they walk like us, they talk like us. They even think and die like us. At least, until they Awaken. They are not true immortals, but they are Immortal in another sense. Souls and personalities with such strength that Time cannot help but birth them again…and again….and again. Some call them the Eir’ Enai, other call them the Time Walkers, I prefer to call them the Endless. But whatever you call them, they are the same. People who no matter how many times you slay, will one day be born a babe in another mother’s arms.
