Note how quickly Typh bounced back from Faden’s Death song as soon as the unicorn came in contact with her. What I don’t understand is why the fishing village boy was not likewise healed.

– It HAS a name.
– You will never KNOW its name. Assuming, of course, you don’t speak its language. Oh, right, you’re human, so you don’t have the auditory range to hear all of the phonemes in its language. Never mind about your linguistic skills then, you’ll never KNOW its name. You probably don’t even have the auditory range to hear all of its name. The parts that you can hear might drive you insane.
– It would almost certainly be INSULTED by whatever name you attempt to give it.

Unicron doesn’t redecorate worlds, he consumes them utterly. Unlike Galactus, who just skims the surface of nutrients.

But I Like The Results!
The World does need a little redecorating.

For the last two at least. What this about them being high in some pantheons now? Or are we talking about Kirins/Quilins?
In any case I think Tiff agrees with you about the rough treatment.

A celestial personification of Purity and Goodness, in some pantheons second only to angels and deva, deigns to travel with you, and you have the audacity to try and NAME it?? A few points:

– It HAS a name.
– You will never KNOW it’s name, to hear it’s heart-wrenchingly perfect tones would most likely destroy your brain.
– It would probably be INSULTED by whatever mortal gibberish of a nickname you tried to give it.

I think Tiff treats it with great respect – a barbarian’s respect, to be sure. She never coddles it, but does not presume to own it, either.

I worry that these port-folk may try to treat it like a horse. It’s a good way to get run through.

“At least one of us should be free”
I read it as “my life sucks and it’s not about to get any better anytime soon, but that’s no reason to bring you down with me. The least I can do is make sure YOU don’t end up caged between four walls.”
