Subject: Stone rose, realized she couldn't rise very far, and so she stood on the table.

"I am Stone, God of the South, the Mountain of Light. I give life, I preserve life, and I am wounded." Light shone from her, especially the stone on her head, giving her fur a silvery sheen it hadn't possessed before. She paused a moment. "Though I know I'm quite small for a mountain at the moment..."And for a moment, she flickered, her fur returning to more earthy hues before the light resumed. When it had dimmed, though, it became apparent that there was indeed a silvery bit of blood matting a tuft of fur on her side.

"It is a pleasure to meet you all. And an honor. Being, well, a mountain, it is rare that I see much of other places." Her voice grew quieter. "Even before... I mean, I'd seen so little of my world, so little of any world..." She shook her head.

"But still. Ananke, I should tell you." Her golden eyes took on a silvery cast as she met Ananke's gaze. "Though I accept this honor and this burden, it is not for you to decide whether or not this is a sacrifice, or a sacrifice they are willing to make. It is their choice what to believe, and what to do about it." She lowered her head. "If any of you want my help, I'll be happy to give it. If there are sacrifices to be made, I'll make them."
