- Reminds me sort of Tolkien's |Ainulindale| where Melkor's rebellious chords in the music of creation are coopted by Iluvatar in order to make a music of creation more beautiful and meaningful than it was originally.

- What are demons in the Greek sense? -Stephen (Steg) "Numenoreans came; Numenoreans who were selfish, and thought that they were gods. But Ocean rose up over them, and traded them to Underworld - for murex-shells and pebbles and for glitterings of light." ~ rokbeigalmki poem
