Zenny's wicked smart, and also really clever when it comes to magic. He's either really helpful or bogs you down with questions - which, hey, I get the point of morality! But not when it slows down progress.
Zve's pretty sweet! I can usually match his energy, though not for TOO long. After I got with Kolo, we don't see much of each other anymore - a lot of my old free time ended up consumed by my new relationship. I should put aside some time for the little guy.
I've settled down a bit too much to really be Ren's BFF anymore, but he's got Prizma for that, so we're cool. But man do his suggestions sound fun - sometimes you just gotta let loose and blow up a car or something, yanno?
I don't hate him as much as Prav does, but Dij is still kinda... um, despotic? To put it politely. He's a very my-way-or-the-highway kinda guy, which makes it hard to tolerate him in long sessions. He's better the more people you have around, though.
What Bereave did to Trou is absolutely reprehensible. I wish I had known Kolo was gonna go save the guy; I would've helped! But... I'm just glad he's back around. I won't let that fucker touch him again.
Mmmyeah Metara was nice, so what? Lots of people are nice and aren't subservient to people like Narke, Cogito, Ihalas, et cetera. Am I supposed to think he's great for eating out of the hands of abusers?
SALTIS. Saltis. Where to even FUCKING start with him? Where to begin? You know, I thought he was a good person forever ago! A guy who'd put himself on the line for his mortals! But NO. He's just as selfish and deplorable as the REST of EVERYONE.
Dad can be emotional at times, but I still respect him greatly. He, like Sires and I and Agie, are Immortal. We're going to have each other forever, and so we must love and care for one another, despite our flaws.
Right, Phynor's successor. Supposedly godly of some sort. I'm going to call bullshit on that, pardon my words. He's an Immortal, granted, but so was I, and so was Phyton. It's not anything special; it's mere genetics. I pay attention to modern advancements!
Phyton... was long dead by the time I was born. Phynor had little that was kind to say about him, but the other ants practically worshipped the places Phyton had once stood. I wonder what I would've thought of him, had we ever met....
Sprig never figured out Osage is immortal of some sort, but I mean, they never talked about when he died in school, and they mention when Phynor and Phyton died. So he's just stupid. We don't see a lot of Osage anyways; he just kinda keeps to himself. I get it. If I was famous I wouldn't wanna be bothered by randoms either.
Ah yes, Cleverly's current internal manager! I always keep track of them - they're very important to alert during emergencies, or if Cleverly isn't available. Unfortunately I don't know much about them - there's been so many, it's hard to keep track of individuals anymore.
Osage followed Phynor in succession, and his rule was known for peace, scientific advancements, and the birth of liberal arts. It's mandatory education, taught to all young Clover aner. Most people aren't told that he's still prowling the halls, though! I nearly fell over when Cleverly introduced us!
Ah, yes, Commander of the Army! Unfortunately I couldn't pick him out of a crowd, but I believe we have met. Didn't he fall right over in shock? I don't always get such extreme reactions, but that was a delight! I may have laughed.
Osage is another older guy that, luckily, I managed to convince to trust that I'm not a god, just a mortal that happens to look like one. Maybe he knows... ah well. He doesn't bother me about it and he ain't sticking his nose in my business, so I think it's fine. He's pretty nice, anyways.
Cleverly and I are indeed friends! I was shocked when someone so similar to a god appeared... it was divine intervention, no? Of course I would hand over the colony to someone else like me, who had been touched by our lost guardians. Also, he's quite sweet.
I dunno. You can call Phyton a lot of things. Evil, ambitious, heroic, intelligent. I think he was kinda all of them at once. He did a lot of good, y'know? If he didn't exist, Clover Colony wouldn't. But... he did bad things, too. I just wish we didn't try to rugsweep them.
Despite all that Phynor did to spread the truth about Firset, I don't think the true retelling of the tale is all that common anymore. But I remember! And I've been trying to spread the real story wherever I can. It's pretty hard actually!
Yes... that name is familiar. The god of luck, yes? Oh, I saw so little of the gods... I know he was a patron of ours, I believe... ah, I wondered for so many years if perhaps IT had been divine retribution for failing to pay proper respects.
...Even now, I can't stop thinking about him. Do you know what that can do to you? After millennia, mulling over motives, over intentions, over every conversation you had with a man you once trusted with your life? I trusted wrong. I trusted terribly. If I had seen that rot in Phyton's eyes from the start... I would have never left joined his sordid, blood-soaked cause.
Firset was an idea man. He could weave dreams and fantasies like no other, spend hours waxing poetic about wondrous future. But he lacked the drive and focus to see any of his goals through... and that is where I assisted. There was nothing more to our relationship or friendship.
Yes... I was born well into Phynor's reign. I remember being raised to be terrified of him; he supposedly was completely unpredictable in battle and would do highly reckless things that always seemed to work in his favor. Yet, by the time I took over Abyssal, he had died. So strange to think about... people like that, gone.
