Playlist: Music for a King — Song # 8 Pain
The first section of this song says it all. This is Pietas’s life: “I’d rather feel pain than nothing at all.” He has no fear of pain. In Bringer of Chaos he is told he’ll be killed if he doesn’t comply with demands for his capture. His response? “I’ve died countless times. I do not fear death. Death fears me.” In this scene, he is preparing to meet with his enemies by engaging in a ritual.
On the planet Kaffir, warriors used this ritual to summon spirits. He used it to affirm his own superior strength and prowess.
Before a copper fire pit, he plucked one blond hair, and fed it to the fire. It singed and melted.
“As fire has victory over life, so I have victory over my enemies.”
He passed a hand through the flame, and hissed at the searing heat, relishing the pain. He cupped his hand over the flame’s source, and held it until the fire went out. The burns on his palm cooled, and as he watched, the skin healed. Of all the elements, fire alone had power to linger on an Ultra’s skin. He welcomed it as a symbol of victory.
“I am powerful, as fire is powerful.”
