- —Ray'kele explains the value of the idol to Michael Lars[src]
During an archaeological dig near the Eastern Dune Sea, Michael Lars uncovered a small wooden idol that bore the outline of a man and a woman. His friend Ray'kele, a fellow archaeologist, explained to him that the man represented an ancient shaman and the woman represented the one the shaman loved. As Ray'kele explained, the shaman was someone who believed that interpretation was the key to understanding reality. Although Lars was disappointed that the idol did not have any material value, Ray'kele assured him that some treasures were more valuable than money and that it could be worth something one day.
