Glemerys is the personification (well, dragonification!) of Fate, a duty appointed to her by the powers that be many centuries ago. She is being comforted by Kit, a heroine in touch with the ancient legends. Kit herself belongs to a holy bloodline. Here, Glemerys weeps as she remembers her lost lover Ithgobad, a blood-demon. He was appointed the personification of Doom at the same time she was made Fate, after he turned against her. Now, the two lovers are forever locked in an Eternal battle of love and hate which can never end; they both adore and resent each other at the same time. Their struggle is a constant reminder of the difficult emotional ties that can exist between all of us.
