Seeing a mortal in prayer, Ara attempts to make her voice heard. She then lets out a sigh of lament, for try as she might, mortals do not see, hear, or feel her presence. Even with her powers that let her perceive all, her voice is not heard by anyone. Grief-stricken, she whispers to mortals conveying her loneliness.

Ara is Latin word for "altar". An altar is any structure upon which offerings such as sacrifices are made for religious purposes. Altars are usually found at shrines, and they can be located in temples, churches and other places of worship. Many historical faiths also made use of them, including Greek and Norse religion.
