“Take up arms! Follow me! To the wall. Scentiers, dream the wind. Matal, presage. What is their intention? Ayuras, how many? This isn’t a raiding party. It’s a whole army. Alkenny. This is our home. We are one and we fight as one. We are one and we fight as one. Prepare for battle. I, Baba Voss, vow to defend against… the Great Flame of the Alkenny! Back to Queen Kane in the belly of their dogs. Follow, brothers, into battle… follow me!” — Baba Voss

“Chi! Chet-chet! Chet-chet! Clear the wall! Clear the wall! Presage. Ayura? They only sacrificed a few. They knew to hold back. To the village!” — Baba Voss

“We had no choice. The Witchfinders and half of Queen Kane’s army’s in the valley. Arca. I declare the Alkenny parliament in session. Hear this. Our wall is gone. We had no choice. But the enemy remain in the valley. God Flame has raised rain, so they won’t attempt the slope in this weather. So we have time. We have men and bear traps on the perimeter. We’ll string ropes to stop their horses. We must do it before the storm passes. Time is short. Prepare.” — Baba Voss

“No, a bear. Maghra, are we three? No, no. Paris, stay. Be with us. Double blessings. God Flame. No. I don’t know. They have horses and dogs. And when the storm is over, they will come for us. All my life I wanted to find peace… to build a home, take a woman and make babies. And now, at this last moment, I have two. One. Two. And I would have loved them so much… as I’ve come to love you, Maghra. Yes. From the first moment… did you string the ropes?” — Baba Voss

“Very well. You must obey the vote. But it will be very difficult for anyone to take a woman and two newborns down a mountain without his arms or his legs. No, but I can kill the first six or seven. So those of you who wish to be among that number, step forward. I have my blade ready to count you to heaven. Do you know the way to this bridge?” — Baba Voss

“Gather your things. Bring only what you can carry or run with. Paris. Tell me, how will you find this bridge? Who’s ‘he?’ Keep moving. Don’t be afraid. Hurry! Form up to cross. Yah! Maghra! Go. Hurry. Be safe. Hurry. Go! Who’s there? Grab my hand.” — Baba Voss

“There is nothing behind us. If any object, argue now for a better way forward. Then it is settled.” — Baba Voss

“Chu, chu, chu, chu. Chi. Says there’s a ladder here. Arca. I will go first. If it can hold my weight, it can hold anything. It’s safe! Ice, ice, ice… Scentier, what’s ahead? Everything. This is where we build our new home.” — Baba Voss

Princess Maghra

“Paris. I feel water. Come. Where have you been? My water broke. Just get it out. Mother of– where’s Baba Voss? I want my husband to be the first to feel the baby. What’s that sound? Paris, I can hear killing ropes. Why have they brought out the killing ropes? Is the village under attack? Where is my husband?”

“God. Who is attacking us? Paris… if you’re lying, I will hear it. Nothing escapes my ears. I can hear doors closing in your voice. I can hear secrets. What are you not telling me? Yeah, who talks to birds and hears the future in her sleep. Saying what? Witchfinders? Why would they come here?”

“A boy or a girl? Hello. Hi. Hello, baby. Yeah. Hello. Good girl. A foot? All right. I heard the earth shaking. Did I imagine it? Jerlamarel. Your father. I’ve told you. He was a stranger. I wandered from my village. I was lost in a blizzard. So what do they tell you?”

“Baba Voss? A boy and a girl. Then how will we survive the day? Paris, we have to do something. What moment? From Jerlamarel.”

“Yes. Yes. I’ll go. I’m safe. Okay. Shh. Shh. Clear the way!”

“His name is Jerlamarel. I knew him well, once. He’s a heretic. The Witchfinders came in search of him because he preaches a particular heresy. He told me has has a power that we would call magical or evil… but which he says almost every human being on earth once had. He preaches that the God bone we use for weapons and tools was not made by the gods, as we’ve been told. Nor the eternal smooth that never rots. Or the flat, straight mountains of Payan. They were all made by humans. Human beings like us, who all had the same lost ability as he has. Jerlamarel said he could not explain it to me. He only said he has the power to see. And if we follow his instruction, we will find sanctuary.”

“Baba, please.”

“Calm, calm. I’m here. The God Flame is rising. A birth blessed by morning. I was delayed. Ah. Now I will sing your baby into the world. Find the way, child, Way, child, way, child Find the way, child Way to me Rise up Oh, the head is coming first. That’s good news. Rise up, child Rising up Oh, Maghra, I feel a little ear. It’s like a slippery bud. Okay, yeah. Okay. Strong now. Yeah. Yeah. Baba Voss is busy. Come. Sip. Sip. We don’t need the big lug. This is women’s work. He’ll be here soon enough. Soon you will have a little one, a little life in your arms. Think of that. Our Scentiers reported a raiding party coming down the valley. Men with horses and dogs. They’re at the foot of the mountain. Baba? Baba Voss is commanding the defense.”

“Up. Up we go. Up. Come. It’s probably just some nomads, hunting for slaves. Yeah? Your job right now is to breathe. Breathe and push. How would I know anything? I’m an old woman. For three nights, an owl has been calling out in the night. Saying, ‘ The Witchfinders are coming.’ something tells me they come for you. It’s probably just some nomads, hunting for slaves.”

“Easy. It’s a boy. A boy. Ten toes. Ten fingers. Two strong lungs. Sinjay. Sinjay. Mama. Ooh. Ooh. Ah. Good girl Maghra. Ah! A little foot! There’s two. The second one’s the wrong way. Sinjay, sharp knife. Maghra, I must bring him out quickly. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Now!”

“Oh. Oh. Oh. Yes, yes. Oh, my God. It’s a girl this time. Oh. Sinjay, mama. Oh, God, no more. Sinjay, fresh water. Alkenny law says the first name they hear you speak. That way they will know it in the soft parts of their soul. Do not say Baba Voss. It must be their true father, or harm will come. Are you ready yet to tell me about him? About who he was? That’s not what the owls tell me. The warriors are back.”

“You are four, Baba Voss. Go on, you big lump. Do not break them. I will leave you. Did the rocks take them all? Baba, did the rocks kill them all? Stay. Stay. It is in hand. The moment has come. The night the stranger delivered you to us… he left this message on my altar. Prepare the babies for a long journey.”

“Put down your weapons! Put down your weapons! We are all Alkenny. Listen. The rain is stopping. The Witchfinders are halfway up the mountain. Once a village has been identified with witchcraft, the whole village must burn. That is their creed. Those babies will not buy your lives. You believe we are trapped here. We are not. There is another way off this mountain. No! There is a bridge. Over the ravine. Beyond the chimes. There is now, Dreamer. Then, since time is short, think of him as a god. No time for how. If I am a witch, I am also your only hope. Those who stay will burn. Women and children will be raped. Even if there is no bridge, the ravine is a kinder death. Gather your belongings. Yes. Have faith.”

“Maghra. Do you think you can walk? Yes? Come, my love. He left me instructions. The babies true father. Baba Voss, be the giant I know you are and step over the pain of that. Come! This way! Path here. The path to the bridge. Salvation! Solid in the void! I am in the air. Miracle. I’m in the air. Hurry! Staffs across the ropes. I’ll be right behind you. I will stay and hold them off. Solid. Solid. Firm ground! Firm ground. Come. Come. Stand sharp. Come. Hurry. Hurry.”

“This day… we have crossed into a new world. The man who built the bridge to deliver us into it will show us the way forward.”

“There is a river beyond. Our Scentiers will dream its willows. And for 30 days and 30 nights, we will follow its path. When the path beside the river disappears, we will walk in the water, so no dogs can follow. Led by the music that Jerlamarel has left behind. Soon hereafter, we will hear the rush of a waterfall 20 men high. And through that waterfall, a sanctuary. A place no one would dare wander. A place where we can rebuild again in peace and safety.”

“What has he left for us? It feels like paradise. But, Baba… you must know… you will be chief of a tribe that must hide from the world and the Witchfinders forever. Know this. One day we could be found. We must be vigilant.”

General Tamacti Jun

“Ah. A boy in need of education. I am Tamacti Jun, the Witchfinder general. In my presence, it is customary to kneel. Then it is I who should apologize. A boy who would betray his own tribe to do God’s work. Your message says that you have information regarding the man we’ve been searching for. Just tell me what you know about him. Your reward will be your next breath if I find your information useful. My Ayuras will hear any lie like a floor through ice. Speak. Tell me something that I can use. And quickly. Jer, la, ma, rel. Jerlamarel. Gether Bax… tell me how your village is defended. If I find a woman giving birth to the devil, I may let you live. If not, you will burn too.”

“This slope is the only way off this mountain, yes? Bring me Gether Bax. You said there’s no escape toward the Sun Grave. Ayuras! Release the dogs! Silence. No. It’s bridge. Gether Bax! Cut him loose! Feel! You first. Staying is death. Walk! Men, follow! Message for the queen.”

The Dreamer, See, AppleTV+, Chernin Entertainment, Endeavor Content, Tantoo Cardinal

The Dreamer

“Baba Voss, you sacrificed the rocks? The Witchfinders? There are no witches here. No, Baba Voss. We continued the parliamentary session that you called. It was pointed out that the Witchfinders don’t come unless they believe there are witches. We’ve never been visited before– a motion was passed that, perhaps, if we give the woman and the babies to the Witchfinders, they might leave us alone. Baba Voss, we have no time. Those babies are not even yours. Now, Baba Voss, you’re a big man, but we are many. You can’t kill us all. And what would you suggest? The Alkenny have been on this mountain for generations. There’s never been a bridge. Built by who? Built by a man.”

“We should go no further than this.”

Bow Lion

“Time for what? We’re trapped.”

“Bow Lion. Kill Dancer. I stand with Baba.”


“Belu. Kill Dancer. I say, Baba Voss… stand aside. If you’re a bird, yes. No man could build a bridge that wide. How do you know so much?”

“Have faith, mama.”

“Paris, who is this man?”


“Baba Voss, you must come. They have voted without you.”


“I hear babies. I hear babies crying. Two newborns. Toward the sun grave. Only the sound of fresh water. Close.”

Scentier 1

“Dogs, horses and men. Cutting up mud and reeds. They’re crossing the river.”

Scentier 2

“They burn beechwood smoke of Queen Kane’s Witchfinders.”


“I feel savage intent in the air. Savage and soon.”

“I feel strong hate. But silent.”


“Horses by the dozen and many men marching. Two hundred, maybe more.”

“Horsing snorting, pawing at pebbles. Many horses. They were hiding behind the river noise. Their cavalry barely reduced.”

“Ilun. Ayura. Killing rope. I stand with Baba Voss. Horses 100 heartbeats away.”


“Chet! Chet! Maybe they’re just following the river to another valley.”

“Arca. Quartermaster. I stand with Baba Voss! The bridge still holds!”



“Chet! Chet! Chi! Chi! Glorious Flame! Chi! Chet-chet-chet! Chet-chet-chet! Baba! Clear the wall! Clear the wall! Clear the wall! Clear the wall! Chi!”

“What? Oh, my God!”

“Chu, chu, chu. Ice…”

Souter Bax

“Until that bitch in there came and dropped her litter among us. She knows because she’s a witch, too. This is madness. No man can build a bridge that can span this divide. Quiet, quiet, quiet. Gether!”

Gether Bax

“I said untie this fucking rope. Hey! I said untie this fucking rope right now! Untie this fucking rope! Who’s there? I said who’s there? Hey! Who is it? Who’s there? I said untie this fucking rope right now! forgive me, sir, but I’m Gether Bax. It is me who sent you the message to come here. That I am, indeed. A heretic who Queen Kane herself has condemned to death. A devil who murdered the queen’s own sister. I know from your heralds that there is a reward for information leading to his capture. To speak, I need my throat. I promise, sir. No ice will I break. At the end of the winter, a woman wandered into our village. A stranger to us. She was found among our berry bushes. She said she got lost in a blizzard. She asked to be taken in because she was three months pregnant. The head of our village said he would take care of her. He has not been able to have children of his own, so he married her. She has been with him ever since. She never said who the father of her baby was. But when she came to the village… she was wearing this necklace. It’s a love token. It has a name written in it. Read. That is the name of the heretic that you’ve been seeking, yes? Well, even now, in the village of the mountain, a woman is giving birth to that devil’s child. If you charge up to the village now, the woman and Jerlamarel’s child can be yours.”

“Ravines and sheer cliffs on all sides except this. That’s why this place was chosen by the ancestors. We are the only Alkenny left. And I will be the last.”

“There isn’t. Only into the abyss, which we know is certain death. We have been on this mountain for years. There is no bridge. No. The ravine is death. Wait! It’s me, Gether Bax! You bastards left me behind!”

Royal Footman

“News from the Sun Grave, Your Majesty.”

Royal Council


Royal Physician

“Yes, Your Majesty? No, I don’t believe it can be passed into a child. I honestly do not know.”

Lord Dune

“He has planted his seed. Your Majesty, Jerlamarel is one man. He served us food in this very room. He was born to a slave, and this power he told you had… perhaps he was a footman attempting to impress his queen with stories he’d heard in the cradle. We have trouble here in the capital. The holy power from the river is failing. The people say we are losing God’s favor. Perhaps it’s time to bring our best soldiers home.”

Queen Kane, See, AppleTV+, Chernin Entertainment, Endeavor Content, Tantoo Cardinal

Queen Kane

“Go. I wish to pray. Father… hidden from us… whose power we feel but cannot touch. Your will resides in this holy place. Give us this day your power given by God Flame and taken from inside this holy river water. Give guidance and clear paths. Condemn those that trespass against us. Give to us flame and smoke. For thine is the darkness, the power… and the glory. Forever and ever. Mm. Come.”

“Ah… hush. Feel. I will talk. The devil who killed my sister… who preaches the Vision heresy, who was given the power of light, Jerlamarel, not only lives. He has passed on his life. Physician? We’ve had this conversation in the abstract. Keep still. It is no secret that we spoke. And once I asked you the question… ‘do you believe the evil power of light can be passed into a child?’ Don’t lie to me. I hear it. It wastes so much time. Caution, fear. Fucking be honest! Kneel. You are forgetting… the evil of light once almost destroyed the world. Men used it to control and twist and alter God’s intentions. Forests burned. The air filled with poison. Lady Zee, send word to the land of the Sun Grave. Their charge is no longer to just find Jerlamarel. Their charge is to find his children… and bring them to me.”
