Raemus, with the help of his officers Kadrin and Anderson, capture Gellar Elias. Raemus and his officers are punished for disobeying their orders. Raemus, seething with vengeance and resentment towards Elias, asks The Council to "correct" him - meaning to erase the corrupt DNA in his body. The three officers torture Elias and stuff his broken body in an equipment crate, after injecting him with a serum that begins to melt his body. They take a ship to the outer atmosphere of Genetia and push the crate out. As Elias slowly dies, the crate careens down to a lake below. His body is broken and melting. As the serum begins to break down his brain, he hears a song deep in his consciousness. It acts as a lullaby for his physical form and guides him to the next plane of consciousness.

Read the stories behind the music:


Pray, pray for your brothers
They walk alone
Your journey is over
Let us go home
We will go together

Fly, fly with me child
Just close your eyes
Don't fear the darkness
Now is the time
The Cosmos has smiled

Think not of what you have suffered
The pain has gone from you forever

We'll bathe in the icy jets of Enceladus
Then sleep for a while in the arms of the Universe

Think not of your pain, just hear my song
Come back to where you were born from

My tormented love
Can't you hear me singing?
Your time here has ended
A new beginning
In the warmth of the stars above

"Hereafter Elias is no more.
Broken and bloodied he will fly
To a watery grave on the shore
And now, dear brother, we say goodbye".

"May Mother guide him."
"May his spirit find respite."
