First encountered: 6.1/P2.1 "The Fall of Constantinople", where the PC's mentally projected back in time to 1204 in order to relive the experiences of their previous incarnations, and in this way witnessed Galahad finding the Grail in Constantinople.

This solar 'angel' claimed to be responsible for visiting those empires and states which "through the Grail had become glorious", and then performing "the Rapture", or "ascending them to the Lord", or other similarly ambiguous statements. The gist seemed to be that it acted to prevent worthy civilizations and/or cities from growing corrupt and decadent and having undignified ends (compared to picking fruit from the tree instead of letting it rot on the branch), whether by destroying them at the peak of their glory or by literally moving them to a different level of reality where they can exist eternally was never entirely specified.

A fragment of its being had supposedly been summoned by a sect of Banishers and subsequently imprisoned beneath the Vatican in such a way that it could not continue carrying out its duty, which seems to have been the original intent behind the act: To stop the Helion from destroying Rome, with the result that the Roman empire slowly died and fell apart instead of going out in a blaze of glory (if Seraphiel is to be taken at its word here). Ever since those places and peoples worthy of such "Salvation" have gone untended, which the angelic figure admitted to include Constantinople, the British Empire and the United States of America, while past targets seemed to span from historical to mythical.

Despite extensive and obsessive questioning on the topic it denied having had any involvement with Atlantis, and seemed genuinely confused and unfamiliar with the topic in general, though it admitted that this might be because names tend to change a lot throughout history and often become unrecognizable. For all Seraphiel knew this ''Atlantis'' of which the Condiments spoke may have been one of the places it had made visitation upon, such as ●Persepolis, ●Zerzura, ●Mouseion Al-Iskandariyya, ●Akhetaten, ●Garama, ●Saïs, ●Peng-Lai, ●Agartha, ●Ubar, ●Hyperborea and ●Matsodyari, among others.


The Tales of Iram

We dug up ancient records from the dire days after the deluge, back when the few survivors were scraping together the dregs which in time was transformed into our society. In crumbling scrolls and archaic verses did they find whispers of something they thought would be the answer to their pleas. It was but the slightest reference of a lost tale, but in the focus of their desire did it become large enough to fill the future from horizon to horizon: The Grāl.


In one of these she mentions briefly the force known to us only as the Grāl, warning those early primitives that it was a power which was no part of the other Creators, yet was it of such prowess that the Gods themselves were wary of it, never seeking to exert their pestilential influence over it. Of its power this lecture said little, only that it was a vessel for life, vitality and growth. Cross-referencing with other sources indicated that this was an item which could provide an eternal flow of youth, prosperity, longevity and sustenance, while others revealed that through its reflections one could see into every place of the entire world, every fiefdom, field, mountain and crevice, and even allowed one's gaze to pierce into the Seven Heavens themselves.

Perhaps more than anything, this last thing made our masters obsessed with obtaining it. They inspired the masses with speeches of the glories its acquisition would bring to the kingdom, the bounty it would afford the masses, but as their personal chronicler I was privy to their high council, and there they spoke of the grand design which drove this enterprise: By means of the Grāl they would finally locate the Creators, pierce whatever veil or ward had kept their lofty realm from our sights all these ages, and through its grace would we invade that false paradise of oathbreakers.


That is what our masters sought to change in seizing the Grāl, what made them disregard all risk or caution in the capturing of the prize and the wielding of its Glory: That we would finally come into our own, and be recognized as standing above our deficient and shameful originators by having conquered and subjugated them, as a symbol and final proof of this fact. Our armies would fall upon their cowardly forms, in righteous retaliation for the crimes of antiquity which they had never been held accountable for, and so fulfill the promises of justice made by our honored ancestors.

But it was not to be, for though our elite champions succeeded in penetrating unto the very heart of rotten Rome herself and so procure the priceless treasure from within the maternal temple there, and though its arrival in Garama was hailed by a three-day festival which covered that entire city, not even the most learned of us all could unlock the Heavens before our armies became as dust.

A wonder indeed was the Grāl, and its presence was felt throughout all the land within mere days. Through its patronage our orchards and fields grew so bountiful that harvests were made thrice in a single year, and even the weakest of engines could pull cartloads a whole day without need of liquid or solid fuel. Even artificers, guildsmen and natural philosophers found that their work was blessed by its arrival, making their burdens lighter and their progress swifter.

The first sign of disaster was when the pumping stations began to fail, one after the other. At first only the small and shallow ones dried up, but soon even our mightiest channels failed to irrigate the land as they should. Soon the heat persisted even into the night, making the dark as sweltering hot as noontime, driving men to insanity and mummifying the fruit hanging on the branches. Our lords had thought to use this marvel to quench their ambition for greatness, never knowing the full extent of what they wielded. In their ignorance did they unleash it upon the land, and the land was scoured.


Suffice it to say that before a decade had passed only Iram, city of my birth, remained alive.


That we selected the two holiest and most righteous of our clergy and entrusted to them the accursed and poisonous Grāl, and bade them to ride forth into the world, removing its taint and hopefully preventing further decline. This has not happened, but of their second mission we may never know the outcome, for they were tasked with finding those who could contain its glory.

Before our exile from the world there were still rumours that one final temple remained in which those priestesses which had once handled the Grāl in the beginning-times were still residing, those who knew its workings. That temple were our couriers told to seek without delay, and the holy ones with it, entrusting to them the treasure so the world may be spared of it.

Though it was how I swayed the royal family into granting my request I admit that I honestly do not believe this quest will have any impact on our fates whether they fulfill it or no. Yet I pray that it will at the least be a final act of penance, that in our final moments we reached out with charity one last time and saved others from suffering further because of our own mistakes. If they fail, or if the rumours are false and there is no such temple, or no priestesses within, may God help mankind.
