Faith is

It's really more of a color wheel thing than any sort of statement I'm trying to make about the nature of theology.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
And if he had not been sustained by the sheer weight of his immense pride,
Unshakeable Faith, though bloodied and beaten,
May have failed to rise from the pile of blood on the floor.
But like a horse, after being forced to break into a gallop after already riding for several kilometers
Does continue its glorious charge for fear of its master's whip,
So did regal Faith, with a twisted grin full of smugness the likes of which children feel,
Their piñatas bursting—manage to maintain his dignity
Even while rising to his livid half-sister,
Blood from his ear wound still soaking his robes.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
"If ever in your heart you felt that Death was to be cherished;
That somehow, in the scheme of things, we all were meant to perish;
That blood and gore would set the score to something less than garish;
And in its wake, give more than take by culling out my parish:
I'm here to say that to this day I've never seen the benefit
To pain and fear, to wounds and tears, to families all torn asunder.
And as your brother's banishment has brought about the end of it,
I hardly regret that I made the sun set on his eyes so devoid of life's wonder."

And as he spoke defiant, so his guards began to rise.
They moved to hold Desire back, but to their great surprise
Faith raised his hand. "I will not stand to see you any longer.
But I'll tell you what you came to hear from me as a matter of honor.
Your brother's soul could not be quelled completely—this you know.
To banish his power, like spores from a flower, his soul needed somewhere to go.
I put it in a human soul—which one was up to Fate.
But somewhere in a far-off plane, a spirit's filled with hate.
Your brother's soul is trapped within the body of another.
To find out which, you wretched witch, you'll have to ask Grandmother.
Now leave me be! I've told you what you came up here to ask,
And if you walk these halls again, those steps will be your last."

Desire grinned. And like a cat will let of a mouse
Just to keep the game afoot as it scurries through the house,
So did sly Desire thus depart from Faith's high quarters,
Her sights newly set on her grandmother's pedestal, west of Velandris's borders.

Livid Sister is a lot better than Prodigal Pyromancer. I mean, you know that, but I feel like it warrants pointing out.
