Hyos' wounded heart has already ceased it's throb. Through the unimaginable suffering, an enormous wooly beast resembling a lion enters his view. It speaks with a rumble that seems to emanate from the depths of Hades, surprising Hyos. Yet even more surprising are it's words: "Do you want to live?" Teetering on the brink of death, Hyos manages to reply: "yes."
