Angelrise moves to a kneeling position.

You see Lady Pyrocite Burnweed the Half-Elf.
She appears to be in her 110's, has long, straight white hair, blue eyes, and lily white skin.
She has a jackal-shaped mark on her ankle, a black chain tattoo on her arm, and a tattooed symbol of Sheru on her thigh.

You take a quick appraisal of Kadesha and find that she has severe head trauma and bleeding from the ears.
She is bleeding from the head.
She is also quite dead.

Pyrocite says, "I said, raise her in a place where she has not blasphemed the patron."

[Icemule Trace, Ice Garden]
Alpine flowerbeds ring this tucked-away courtyard, their bright colors a feast for the eyes in comparison to the white of all the snow that lies beyond the gate. Tamped snow paths keep footsteps soft in this small haven as travellers make their way to and from the chambers north of here.
