This cathedral worships a heart-shaped deity who is reportedly fixed on the moon. They painstakingly perform religious rituals at certain phases of the moon. They focus on using the light of the moon to banish the undead and to heal the injured and sick. The stained glass windows record great wars of power and terror, but today they are a benevolent group.

The doors slam open as Nalima strides in. A nun in the corner looks up from scrubbing the stones of the wall. "What is your business here?" she inquires.

"My sister requires healing." Yoren hisses.

He then tells the woman the contents of the poison used on Ina.

The woman curtsies, then enters the large doors to the left of the staircase.

A few minutes later, a visibly aged woman emerges. "In four centuries, this is only the second time I've received this kind of poison. It cannot be cured." She says this with a slight haughty air to her, but she emanates power.

Yoren lets go of the hold he has on the energy that constantly thrums within him, letting all present feel. It seems even greater than the old woman's, and there's no way she doesn't feel it.

"Try." the order has steel in it, and Yoren's patience seems to be thinning.

She coughs bitterly. "Very well."

She opens her mouth, and her energy floods the room. Three voices begin to sing at one, in a distorted harmony. The stained glass windows fill with multicolored light, and the two yellow eyes in the center of the deity become nearly blinding. They shine like spotlights down upon the floor.

And then, they begin to move.

The two spots dance around curiously as the woman's voice gets higher and higher, then they seem to be dragged together, converging over Ina's chest.

The lights fade. The feeling of energy in the room subsides. The woman falls silent.

Finally, she speaks, and her voice is still three voices in unison. "We have sustained her life force. She will not perish yet."

"Thank you." Yoren says.

"It is you who must name your price, be it gold or aught else. How much is the girl's life worth to you?"

"Very well. How about a service for a service? Within reason, of course."

"You would offer us your service?"

The eyes in the stained glass window flash again, and a wind blows through the room.

The old woman's voice is back to normal - just a single voice. "Then it shall be so..."

"I said a service. A single service done and a single one returned, nothing more."

"The task is not mine to give," she proclaims, turning to stare adoringly at the stained glass window. "It is Hers."

"We talk when we please," the three voices from before say. The woman's mouth did not open.

"Right then. Are you a god, demon, Eldrich abomination, or sentient piece of glass?"

Yoren is completely deadpan and seemingly unfazed by the talking window.
