The Hanged Man
"What binds them is their curiosity about the beyond, their purpose in the story, their similar paths and the fear of facing everything alone, the connection they feel, and the strong discussions they have. What keeps them together is the source of their existence, which still hasn't been understood. They haven't understood themselves yet . . . "
- The Author, Chapter XII "The Hanged Man"
“The breeze, the breath of god, is still,
And the mist upon the hill Shadowy, shadowy.
Yet unbroken, Is a symbol of a token.
How it hangs upon the trees,
A mystery of mysteries!”
-Spirits of the Dead, Edgar Allan Poe
