“The Seraphs? Yes, yes everyone talks about the wings, their mysterious masks. The abstracts of the divine they do or don’t represent. All very pretty… but so many people miss the hands. The hands rest downward on the Towers. See that? Never been a hand coming down that wasn’t about one thing—Control. It’s what they represent. That’s what they are. ‘Wings touch in a unifying ring…’ Hah! That’s no ring friend. It’s a collar.”
