“The Tower of Souls exists for the salvation of the suffering spirits.”
Kahlii, the Ghost Guardian, was a rather controversial Abyssal Lord. Once part of the Veda, she held the might and powers of blessing. Yet despite her untouchable position, she was humble and willing to dedicate all her time, patience and kindness to listen to the prayers of the believers in the Gospel Palace of the Sacred Mt. Orphean and do her best to soothe their wounded hearts and souls.
Kahlii had seen too many shattered souls. It weighed heavily on her mind. “Master, how shall we relieve these tormented souls from their grief?” She often asked Edras, the Archmage of Veda and her favorite teacher. He was wise and powerful, and if anyone had the answer, it would be Edras.
“When it comes to mortals, from birth to death, from happiness to grief, the Creator controls all. The mortals have to suffer to achieve innovation and change the world. This is the mission they’re born with, their destiny,” Edras would explain. This answer did not satisfy Kahlii. She couldn’t understand why these fragile Humans were given such a great yet heavy burden. All she could do was to try to help them with her limited powers.
She was doubtful, she was lost. Volkath saw it all. The prisoner, kept by Edras in the Sacred Mt. Orphean, had yet to become the Dark Lord who ruled the Abyss, but was already as cunning as could be. He decided to bring Kahlii onto his side in order to escape from the clutches of Edras sooner and bring his rebellion into action more efficiently.
“Time and space are both the origins of life. All beings in this world will cease to exist without the origins.”
“Be it us, be it the mortals, no one would be able to escape the binds of the Order of the World. That’s where the origin comes from.”
“But do remember—the powers that constitute the origin are not limited to just time and space.”
“Light and darkness, too, are parts of the origin. These are powers that could bring us above the Order, so that we would no longer be bound.”
“You know all about Light Magic. Naturally, you know that the essence of Light Magic is the control of the power of light.”
“Wouldn’t you like to learn more about Dark Magic as well? If you have a good grasp of both, you’ll no longer be restricted by time and space. You’ll be able to do everything and anything.”
“Such as...protecting those weak Humans.”
What Volkath said was indeed appealing. Kahlii knew that there had to be a catch somewhere, yet the offer was impossible to refuse. She knew that the abyss lay right in front of her—yet she still jumped without an ounce of regret.
“You’d better be telling the truth, or else, no matter what happens, I’ll find you and blast your head off!” Kahlii said. These were her last words as the Goddess of Blessings. Volkath was the only one who heard them.
“As you wish, my Lady.” Volkath’s lips curved into an elegant smirk.
From then on, the Veda lost a gentle, beautiful Goddess, while the Abyssal world gained a kind, peaceful Ghost Guardian. Legend had it that no matter how much you sinned, no matter what tortures you had been through, as long as you entered the Tower of Souls, you would be truly free.
“I see the light.”
