Mathias has us look for physically strong men for the brotherhood... but none too smart. They must be willing to take orders and work. Any who question or resist are immediately killed. And the women... Mathias decide their fate. Most are sacrificed to the dark walkers, but some are chosen for the ritual.
We put up with this insane ceremony. Some brothers are even starting to believe in it. Something clearly controls the storms around this island and it will never let us leave. Father Mathias claims to speak to it... her. This Sun Queen spirit, or whatever it is. I don't know what to believe. I'm just doing what I can to survive.
This is insane. Mathias has convinced these men that the spirit of the Sun Queen is somehow alive and keeping them on this island.
