"In this world, my friend, there are giants, and there is Dela, the One God. To these two entities we owe our vitality. To both we may ascribe the term 'deity.' And between man and deity lie the Healers. They are channels for disease, destruction, sorrow, malice, and all else that ails man. The Healers siphon what pains us, and give it to Dela. What Dela does with it, none can say. One must wonder if the giants that plague us and destroy our towns are not born of Dela herself, of the woes our Healers send to her. As if she is taking our terrors into her own body, only to slice them away like a cancer and send them back to our world."
