Heat remains silent, unphased by the topic of conversation. Then, he lays his bag down beside him in the booth and speaks. While he speaks, it seems like his way of talking changes very slightly (OOC: every new paragraph). "Is it a matter of who we are? Or what we hope to achieve in our mortal vessel? ... When the sea meets the stars at a being's final walk towards death they reflect not upon their character but the actions and consequences which led up to the state of their passing. Should they cower in death's presence or welcome it with open arms recognizing their finite time in the infinite scape of existence is now closing?" "As someone who bears the light so zealously I imagine you do not fear the darkness. But light will always cast a shadow, even if that shadow is too small to behold. It will always linger, and useless to ignore or deter when the line between light and dark is so very thin. ... So why not walk that line? Like fire, which may provide warmth and growth to civilizations or may scorch the lands leaving nothing in its wake. The decision is the wielder's to use such a beautifully destructive force for the greater cause." "When you welcome both evil and good forces into one domain they must struggle for dominance, of course. But there will always be the other to pull one down should it stray too far. There cannot be light without dark and, likewise, dark cannot thrive without light. It's simply how one decides to let those influences drive them that will determine their resolve, their willpower, their fighting strength. ... Erevan, there are evils in this world that wish to destroy the light. And darkness that wishes to abolish the light. In reality, the terms good and evil are dangerously subjective. However, there must remain a balance." Heat looks deeply in Erevan's eyes with beads of red light. (OOC: within the [brackets] is a small chorus of three different voices.) "For in my short time here, I've realized that there cannot exist one without the others [without the others, without the others, without the others]."
