”.. to thy fair palace and the blissful plains where happy spirits dwell, and Lord Plouton reigns.” Orphic Hymn to Persephone
Aepril Schaile as Persephone.
I am the blue-lidded daughter of Sunset; I am the naked brilliance of the voluptuous night-sky.
To me! To me!
“You who chooses the slain, look on my deeds and when my time comes to run the sky with you, let my end be worthy of song. In the meantime, let me feel excitement and poetry and fury and joy, let me understand sacrifice, think long, remember well and journey far. Odin, witness this.”
