I'm well aware. They're interesting little guys! Some can be pretty stubborn, too - but they definitely can't see us, at least.
They're an audience, of course. Sentient creatures, serving as a viewpoint for people from other places.
They're very common in between. You don't have to worry, they won't hurt you or anything.
I guess I should explain in a way you can understand. Hm... Imagine a couch's cushions, and how things can fall between those cushions. Right? Those cushions represent universes, and we're between them. It's a place many visit - you have to pass through it to access other universes, after all.
Not all of us are as creatively gifted as you and your friends.
I'm... well, that's hard to explain, too. You understand there's a multitude of universes, all existing in this same space here.
The overall space, the collective universe - I'm an extension of that! Like Albus is an extension of the game.
No! No. Not at all. Just a representation of existence itself. My existence doesn't prove or refute any religious beliefs.
My most common form is that of the person closest to the heart of whoever I'm talking to. For example, if I talked to your friend Aldrich, I'm sure I'd appear to be Diego to them.
Yeah, that was quite the shock! I guess it means you don't have anyone that close to your heart like that.
We're here to have a conversation, of course. I wanted to talk to you.
Alright. Hmm... Well, I want to start by saying that I had a pretty big hand in helping make the game you're playing now. SEED. The people who originally made it made it for the audience you see floating around you, and also for those they worshipped. They felt the highest form of respect would be to contribute to the universe at large by making, well, universes to populate it. Pretty cute of them!
I'm getting there. I helped them ensure the game was not anything anyone could tamper with once it started! No outside input whatsoever. They protected the game fiercely, too, so there wasn't any worries about the game being modified before it could be launched. It was taboo in their culture to do anything to the game that may change it, so nobody inside was a threat.
It was. Somebody did take the code, shortly before the creators... well, you'll see shortly. Someone from outside of their universe, a thief who takes strange trinkets as they travel across space. They left the code in Cherry's parents' database, hiding it from everyone looking for it. However, clearly, your friend Cherry found it, and modified it without any hinderance at all. Mew's very talented! A promising programmer, I say.
Well, the modifications your friend made also allowed for a backdoor of sorts. You discussed this with Albus already. As you said--
Eloquently put! And here I am, to fill the empty role.
I'm an extension of the very core of existence itself.
You'll have full access to my complete capabilities of existence itself, including and not limited to the power to revive the dead, the ability to create life and matter from nothing, and to destroy similarly. Though I do have to warn you: you're still limited by your human form! Using too much of my power at once may be dangerous.
I'm not the strongest with numbers and math. I've been taking courses, though!
Did I get the position?
Fantastic. I look forward to working with you, Dina. I'm glad you decided to agree - the other player I talked to agreed too, but it was pretty grumpy about dying to meet me.
Yes! Diego. It's a warlock, so I've volunteered my services for its powers to function too. It's a lot more limited in what it can do than you, though.
I hope you don't. Until next time, Dina.
