In order to ascend to the ranks of the gods, it is necessary to undergo trials that would break all but the most stalwart. Adeus is one of the incredible few that have endured, for within her frame a pure heart mingles with the noblest spirit. She desires peace and will not falter to expel evil or stave off calamity. But she believes it necessary for the world to ebb and flow under the influence of all, and not just one. So she does not change man's fate, graciously acquiescing to act only as their guide.

Sylph (also called sylphid) is a mythological spirit of the air. The term originates in the Swiss German alchemist Paracelsus, who describes sylphs as invisible beings of the air, his elementals of air. Because of their association with the ballet La Sylphide, where sylphs are identified with fairies and the medieval legends of fairyland, as well as a confusion with other "airy spirits", a slender girl may be referred to as a sylph. Sylph has passed into general language as a term for minor spirits, elementals, or faeries of the air. Fantasy authors will sometimes employ sylphs in their fiction, for example creating giant artistic clouds in the skies with airy wings.
Adeus translates from Portuguese as "bye, goodbye, farewell".
