Considering that they are being set up as the villains, Visionaries certainly have a fine heroic story to tell themselves. A long history of being pawns of the gods! A lone “kindly” god who grants humanity the power to defy their fate! Humanity remade as gods, striking down all who would oppose them! Free exclamation marks for everyone! I can easily imagine someone like, say Kali, getting swept up in the enthusiasm, if only she hadn’t been raised to believe that Vision was the worst of the lot. Its a big step up from most fantasy villain motivations, which often seem to be along the lines of “They were bad, so they did bad things, try not to think too hard about it.”

Dream Eater’s patience in telling the story truly amazes me. Unless he just likes telling (tall) tales, hah.

He’s happy to explain, in detail, the answers to questions that you never asked. It’s when people actually ask him things that he manages to completely side step answering questions. For instance, instead of telling Zhiro what’s going on with this whole ‘living in his head’ situation…we’re getting a history lesson. That nobody requested. But is sufficiently distracting.

Hmm… So by extension Dream Eater’s opposite/weakness is Zanaza’zael?

From the mandala earlier in the chapter, I’m guessing that those weaknesses are cyclical (So, if you go clockwise, the next Mystery you hit has a weakness to the one before). Which means that the Rainbow Goddess is weak to Dream Eater (which makes sense: knowledge can make or break dreams), who in turn is weak to Vision/the Lightning Snake (random flash of insight can make a mockery of a lifetime of knowledge)…

But we don’t know enough about the Bone Matron to complete the puzzle. Bones, sight, darkness, loss, spiders… those are the ‘themes’ I get from her. But not a lot of hard facts so far.
