Mardock the mechanical magistrate
Made the morning moon
Set still in the southern sky…and slowly
Did he dominate…daringly
Yet three of the sisters are still alive

Artis the sister of sand and time
Beloved of her father, the next in line
To rule the sapphire throne, an icon to her home
Her task was laid in stone, she did not go alone

Talim the falconess of sea and sky
She wears a silver bores tooth and a beaver hide
Devoured devoutly by the demon dog Denoban
Alive in his belly she’ll wait so long

Lumus, a daughter of space and light
She dons a diamond dress when she plays with time
The crown of constellations upon her head
My past lays undone she often said

I called out for a friend
And the council they sent
Aid from the trees
All the help I need

A forest world begins
All their agents move in
Laying roots down underneath
Planting every single seed

Mardock burned with rage
He unlocked the dragon’s cage
And set upon the world, a hate that unfurled
Ablaze the fire storm, where Ragnarok was born

With the sentinels displaced
His summon leveled the place
But a bowman from afar
Pierced the dragon’s heart
The forest world rejoiced
For Mardock had no voice
