"I've watched you ever since the day I was made.
Watched you love, watched you laugh, watched you kill and die.
You're perfect, even though you don't know it. Perfectly wonderful.
I've been watching, trying to figure you out.
Trying to figure out how to be you.
I know more about you than you do.
I know more about you than I do about myself."
—The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, Galateid
It’s A Cold World
The Pilgrimage is a long and lonely road, but every Promethean must walk it. The Created do not come into the world knowing what steps to take upon this road. They must learn from others of their kind, from their creators and from painful experience. Over time, they might unlock the secrets of their humours, changing their bodies to better survive a world that shuns them. But every discovery leads only to further uncertainty, and all the Created can do is press on, led by the promise of Mortality.

Thoughtful essays discussing many issues important to Promethean chronicles
