Fed by sacrifice and song, Namtaru grew stronger. The waters around Crete turned blood-red, quenching the thirst of any Baali who waded in it, and the sun refused to shine on her shores. Namtaru himself stirred, exercising its will to shield the island from the accursed light that vanquished it eons ago. The Child's very presence caused nature itself to recoil from its touch, turning water to vitae and air to smoke.
