Description

The trees are the structures connecting the biomorph figures and appear to be loosely related to the Tree of Life from Kabbalistic renown. The manuscript records five tree variants that it deems "wise and proper" for universal disclosure. Others are rumoured to exist.

  • The Tree of the Seer -

The Lātō, the seer, is not themselves a genuine agent of power. They are but a conduit.

The central triangle and its appendages represent their arms outstretched, ready to receive; and the disconnected northern triad is the all-seeing eye that is not the Lātō's own.

The markings on the connective lines, in addition to revealing hidden connections to learned scholars of the mystical, are rumoured to reveal an exhortation.

  • The Tree of Chaos -

Kháos is a spider sinister and wise, though oft-broken in battle, always swift again to rise.

The Southern Monad represents the body of the creature, and the chaotic connections are its legs, neither as numerous as they once were, nor capable of finding the firm ground anymore.

Kháos, when undisturbed, walks its own internal landscapes, twisted and fraught with infinities that would drive lesser minds insane.

The markings on the connective lines, in addition to revealing hidden connections to learned scholars of the mystical, are rumoured to reveal the arachnid's method of immortality.

  • The Tree of Power -

Mek'ena is an ancient device of great power, ever wrong for its time.

The triaxial connection between the Northern Triad and the Southern Monad is the nexus of the machine's power. The lateral connections to the Eastern and Western Triads are its stabilizers, without which it could very well destroy the world.

The markings on the connective lines, in addition to revealing hidden connections to learned scholars of the mystical, are rumoured to reveal the source of all power.

  • The Tree of Balance -

Tentsel is the scale of justice by which one and all are weighed.

Its dexterous half measures our acts of benevolence against our transgressions that burden the scale's sinister side.

The markings on the connective lines, in addition to revealing hidden connections to learned scholars of the mystical, are rumoured to reveal the way to evade final judgment.

  • The Tree of the Grail -

Aska is the grail filled by the fountain of wisdom.

Its connected parts are the wall of the grail, and the solitary remnant of the Northern Triad represents the water of life.

The markings on the connective lines, in addition to revealing hidden connections to learned scholars of the mystical, are rumoured to reveal the name of a people whose wisdom is lost unto time.
