The Crone, The Owl, and The Cocoon
She knows this battle is hers alone. Long and hard fought, with no end in sight. The foes are those who seek to destroy Truth. To destroy Honor. To destroy Justice. Their troops outnumber The Crone in so many ways. The prize they eye is coveted by so many. Power, glory, fortune and perhaps fame.
The Crone seeks none of these, she seeks only to heal. The wisdom of The Owl is her guide, her map. It's curious to her, how many will follow false prophets, only to be used and abused over and over again. She asks herself why she fights this battle. And with wisdom of the ancients, and the insight of The Owl that is unfailingly true, The Crone knows the answer. Truth. Honor. Justice. No matter the price. Her mission in life was mapped out in ancient times. She bows to the Goddess and whispers, "Your will is mine".
