Thaddeus - Æthera - horror

He never gets it quite right, when he dreams of home. Somehow, the few early memories he still retains get inextricably tangled together with his early days in Æquitas Illumina, spider-priests in luminescent robes dropping words like poison that eats away at him, unnamed horrors that linger like a bad taste when he wakes. As a child, such weakness shamed him; older now, and accustomed to shame like a well-worn cloak tailored to fit, he thinks little of the swamps he hasn’t seen since he was a boy, and he has found several ways to avoid dreams altogether.
