‘We are awed by the presence of what is most powerful. The God that dwells within the mountain above; forges new worlds, building life anew.’

‘When the Master Creator puts the final piece in place of a new world; the mountain shrieks with happiness. Thunderous and hot, the essence of the God flows to us.’

‘It is a great privilege to be touched by the lava from the Creator, for it means that you have been granted eternal existence on the new world He has created. It is glory; honour.’

‘How big is our tribe?’

‘I am the last left.’
