Quotes

Gossip

Greetings.

Gossip Do you remember your past life?

Precious little, in recent times.

The memories fade naturally as my former life draws ever more distant, and many others I have let go of willingly to fulfill my duties here.

Except...

Gossip Except what?

Except for one.

It can be difficult to think about. I know I should let it go but...I want...maybe need...to remember it.

It is too much a part of who I am to forget.

Gossip I'm listening.

I appreciate your listening. Truly. As soulbinds, I know I can trust you.

<Pelagos takes a deep breath, then exhales slowly.>

I had a female form in life. I don't recall my former name, or even my race, but I...never felt like my physical form represented who I was inside.

It never felt as clear to me then as it does now. I struggled with that identity for my entire life...

Gossip <Continue to listen.>

But when I arrived in Bastion I became an aspirant that looked like, well...

<Pelagos gestures to himself.>

This! A male form!

I felt...comfortable! Excited! Like who I was inside matched what others saw for the first time!

All of those feelings in my life finally made sense.

Gossip <Continue to listen.>

I may not reach ascension as fast as some, but I am truly happy on the path I follow.

Not many kyrian discuss their pasts, or even remember them! I believe we have much to learn as a people in that regard.

When I told Kleia, she listened--just as you have. And she has been as steadfast a friend as I could have hoped for--just as you have.

Thank you. I am glad that I was able to share my story with you.

Gossip Thank you for sharing it, Pelagos.

Notes

  • During the Shadowlands alpha, dialogue and quest text originally referred to Pelagos with the gender-neutral pronouns "they"/"them". This was changed after Blizzard received feedback that using "he"/"him" would be more respectful of the character's wishes to be identified as a man.[2]
