0.4. "Angels’ Dance" Edit

Story takes place 400 years prior to the series. — Zaria, one of Galen's scouts from Titus' court who has come to join him in Raphael's court, reports that Tanae, his mother, is training new troops and sent no word to him by her. Tanae had to have known of Zaria’s decision to defect, it was an expected and watched-for consequence on the departure of a commander—and yet she’d sent no message with Zaria. [3] Galen confessed to Jessamy that he had gotten sick in front of his mother rafter his first battle and she was disgusted with him. Jess called her a harsh taskmaster. He said she was a warrior.[1] Wrote a letter to Galen telling him to return—Titus has agreed to give him command over half his forces as his lieutenant—Orios will remain weapons-master.[2] She wrote again, urging him to take up the lesser position and “improve his skills". Jess saw it as an attack on Galen’s self-confidence. Galen says she's scared. He wants to see her, but won't chase her approval any longer.[4] Tanae requested permission to come to the TowerRaphael granted it. Galen saw her through new eyes—he no longer needed her support. [5]

Quotes Edit

Tanae was an anomaly among angelkind. A warrior, talented and proud, she had never wanted a child. To her credit, she had raised Galen with scrupulous care, and while the flitterbies had attempted to make a spoiled pet of him—an attempt he’d repudiated with childish fierceness—it was always Tanae he strove to impress. Until he’d understood that her indifference wasn’t feigned to motivate him to greater heights. It ran bone-deep. [6]
