-he sees four ogres with his similar tusks and horns, two blue, two red, in a stoic stone chamber with no doors
-they speak, testing arcady’s personal fire, then command him to insert himself into the conflict between The Cutthoat and The Cutpurse, as it will make the ogres a power in the world
-they bless him with wisdom (the book guy, old and blue), compassion (the flower woman, beautiful and blue), vengeance (the blade woman, mighty and red), and the winds of change (bynazgu, red with more intense horns than the others)
