When Lea Surana and Zevran visit the Tellari swamps and find the Surana settlement dilapidated but as intact as something like that abandoned for 20 years can be.
Lea’s mother was the first to succumb to Lea’s curse misfire, the Keeper, his father, was the fifth (no one ever really found out what happened to Lea’s mundane older brother but after a while any records there are of the dead cease to be as giving the dead back to Mythal’s Mother and the rapidly dwindling population created enough chaos).
But there was a shrine to the dead, on which the ceremonial headdress with the famous ‘black feather’ that Lea later takes from himself is hung along with mementos from the other dead. By that time, Lea has already deduced from the Surana tapestries who he, Lea, was.
And when Zevran asks if Lea ever wonders what would he have become, what he’d be like if none of this had happened, if he’d lived a life among the clan instead of the Circles. And Lea just takes his father’s headdress, idly looks at it, removes the feather, tosses the rest of the headdress back, shrugs and without much feeling at all, casually replies
no one worth remembering, really
and begins loading any salvage they’d gathered from the Surana settlement back into their boats.
Sing me a lullaby!
