The outcome was inevitable. It was impossible to defy the gods, and Immanuel should have realized this. Forced to act upon his original task, he held the dying elf maiden as life drained from her body, tearfully begging for her forgiveness. Had Immanuel obeyed and the elves repented, it was possible their tragic fate could have been avoided. "O gods, where is your mercy?" The angel's regret flared into rage, and his wings began to darken.

Immanuel (also Romanized Emmanuel, Imanu'el) translates from Hebrew as "God is with us".
