Uba: =Buo, he may be right. He was here twenty years ago. There is much he has done that he won’t tell us about. He may not believe in gods, but to be sure they believe in him! And he is not a bad person.

Uba: If you buried your friend out here, she belongs to our gods now. This is Kasi land. Home of Kasi gods and Kasi magic. Perhaps she was powerful. Or perhaps she was just special to you. I know you feel very strongly, and that is powerful magic. Maybe that is why Hēbo was able to use her.

Uba: Good. It’s settled. Buo…
=Tell me more about my family. Please.=
