What if the priestess, once born, never died? What if she served her god so faithfully they gifted her with everlasting life, so she need only take a new form when the previous one was spent? Though perhaps immortality was never actually a gift, only a way to keep her spirit bound in servitude through the ages. Priestess, scribe, oracle, conduit – every life a different body and yet the same soul, the same bond, the same calling. Would she remember those past lives or would each rebirth restart the process of seeking and submitting? These aren’t questions I’m yet ready to ask; I don’t know which answer I hope for and which answer I fear.

  1. That’s very interesting. I had never thought of reincarnation working that way. Is it one life, one destiny, and a new one for a new life, or does the destiny follow? And if the priestess’ duties and obligations were to follow her, is that something like eternal servitude? Would she be better off breaking the cycle by being negligent in her work? Lots to think about.

    • I’m not sure she COULD be negligent, after who knows how many thousands of years of servitude.. maybe it’s all she knows?
