As the warrior approached it became evident that he was not human, but half man half tiger. The warrior took off his helmet and placed it at his feet. "Daemok" he began, "Daemok, what are you doing? What have you done?"
Daemok stood there, she knew she was hallucinating, but replied anyway, "I have done nothing."
"You missed your brother's wedding Daemok" the Tiger said, "Your son grows into a man and you have missed it all. You have shirked your responsibilities."
"I have no responsibilities!" she said.
"Is that right?" the Tiger asked. "What of your Kingdom? It is in the hands of a madman, he works his people to the bone, forcing them to build monuments to his honor. He is of savage blood. He works your people as if they were slaves."
"I don't know what you are talking about Pacal is dead, I am not Queen of the Maya any longer!"
"Once a Queen always a Queen. You are the mother of Voltan, it is your duty to prepare him for his destiny. You have failed, it is your bastard brother who performs this duty now, you have failed Pacal!"
"I want this to stop!" Daemok exclaimed.
"Daemok, you must prepare him, for his destiny..."
"MAKE IT STOP!" Daemok said.
