Yeesha, last night your mother had a dream. The dream tells that the ancient D'ni city will grow again someday. New seekers of D'ni will flow in from the desert, feeling called to something they do not understand. But the dream also tells of a desert bird, with the power to weave this new D'ni's future. We fear such power; it changes people.

Yeesha, our desert bird, your search seems to take you further and further from us. I hope what you find will bring you closer.
