Wounded and Dangerous
A survivor hasn't been vanquished, Morgause had told her. As long as you live, continue the fight. Lost battles are bygones. Win the war!
In the Sarrum's dark hell-hole, Morgana kept repeating her sister's words as survival incantation. The endless torment might be breaking her, but by every goddess, she would rise again. Together with Aithusa, she'd snatch victory from these cruel jaws of defeat.
She escaped too late, when reason had slipped permanently through the cracks in her mind. Morgana's later actions were completely driven by Morgause's mantra and the blind rage permeating her splintered and chaotic self.
