'What is it, my pet?' she inquired. 'Has another come?' The elven woman with the soft dark hair placed her hand on one of the many orbs which contain the souls of those who made a pact with her before. Each of whom came to her with a favor to ask, and each put up their soul as collateral until the favor be repaid in full. Those who keep their end of the deal will regain their lost spirit while those who do not lose it to her forever. In this way she has stayed alive for the past five hundred years for the souls of the lost keep the damned alive.
