Ah, yes, she did figure that was confusing. Many had never heard of Civir to begin with, and likely weren't certain how to make sense of the dimension also coming in wolf form. She knew that, logically, after thinking about it, but it had taken a moment or two of thought.
Kasaya didn't answer, at first, thinking and continuing along the ice. There was a marker, that denoted where Suryan was, but she had to find it. As Civir often move , the marker did, too.
"Many thousands of years ago," she started, as she looked for the marker, "Civir was a proper dimension, and had lifeforms that populated it. It was a very young dimension, then, and all dimensions, as things live and die on them, gain memories of their lives and experiences. They collect together into a receptacle called a varisaron. This stores these memories, and when a soul returns to the creator, their memories go with them, but it is this transference of energy that allows reishi to pass from one to another. All reishi in the universe is borrowed, Sandalio, and someday it is returned. That is the way of things."
She paused on the ice, and then looked up at him. "Civir has always housed the dreamer. But those creatures that lived on it once thought to use the dreamer as a weapon of war. Civir gathered its collected energies and knowledge, and gave itself sentience, to protect its creator. Life on Civir died out, Civir buried and hid the dreamer from the universe it created, and even now, it guards it fiercely. But, there is only so much a barely sentient dimension can do. Civir created shinigami, to do the rest."
Softly, Kasaya tapped the ice with one foot. Instantly, a dark mass of blue burst across the ice, glimmers of silver in the inky darkness. And just so, the chimes sang. "Turn around." Suryan's glass pieces tinkled about behind him.
