"He was a successful man. I am proud to have him as my ancestor." Abasi felt a pang in his chest as he realised he had not left his offerings for his ancestors since he had come to Caido. Perhaps he could make a small shrine for them in the manor - hopefully Loren wouldn't mind.

He smiled and nodded. He could not remember well his time blighted, only seemed to recall it in flashes of rage-filled memories and confused dreams, but he knew he was glad Loren had been there through it.

Abasi stood to let Remi in, waving a dismissive hand at his words. "There is no requirement for artistic skill. I personally have no talent for it. Some people have simply written." And while he might not care for what they had written, it remained on the wall as all of them would.

The room he took Remi into was pristine perfectly clean, to the point where it was hard to believe it had been an abandoned building only a week prior. A table laid out in the middle of the room had along it many different tools; knives, spoons, hooks, all with the purpose of embalming or removing parts of corpses. Cupboards along the walls were labelled with a language Remi did not recognise that appeared to be largely pictorial, while the wall featured 4 charcoal-painted depictions of the end of life. No bodies were currently in the mortuary, but the space at the back with a cold emanating from it was clearly for the storage of corpses when they would arrive.

"I have tried to make it look as professional and clean as possible, to encourage members of the public to engage with me." Abasi declared, looking across to Remi as if asking for confirmation of it's cleanliness and professionalism.

Remi smiled weakly at that. He had no one in his blood-family that he was at all proud to be related to. Still, he could understand the sentiment well enough, being more than proud for the people in his life he now considered his family.

With a bashful smile, Remi entered into the mortuary having absolutely no idea what to expect. And yet still he was surprised. Shivering slightly at the chill from blocks of ice that he currently couldn't see, the alchemist stepped forward with his mouth agape as he looked around. Though he didn't understand all of what he was seeing, being an artisan he could certainly respect the cleanliness and the way that everything was lined up just so. Getting a sense that part of this was for hygienic reasons, he reached down and wiped errantly at the grease and soil that stained his clothes, banishing it instantly.

"You have certainly done that. From one craftsman to another, this is most impressive." Remi breathed, his fingers trailing over but not touching the various tools.

Abasi noticed that Remi eliminated the dirt from his clothes in a second; immediately he wondered if the other man was 'abandoned' by the Gods by himself (and also grateful that the Alchemist wasn't going to get his grubby little hands on everything). However he had learnt that some considered the question to be rude, so for the moment he held off on asking it.

But Remi said something else that was interesting, anyway. Fetching some charcoal paints from one of the cupboards as well as a cloth to cover the floor with, he asked: "What is it you craft?" Remi had been covered with stains but had said he had no artistic skill, so Abasi wondered if he might be an architect or some kind of inventor.

"Oh, ah..." Bashfully Remi offered the other man a crinkled sort of smile. Everything was probably the most correct answer, but it felt so horribly pompous to say.  "Would you believe once I was a weapons creator?" He asked, his gentle laugh and overall affect seeming to reinforce (along with his amusement) how silly of an occupation that had been for him. "Now I am just an alchemist." He replied eventually.

Offering the undertaker another boyish shrug, Remi moved to look at the paintings on the walls. Indeed some were far more detailed than others, and just as Abasi said, one was just words.

"And this is all for the dead?" He asked, leaning forward with his hands linked behind his back as he inspected the mural.

"I believe the word is weaponsmith." Abasi said automatically, inwardly cringing at himself after - he had meant to become less judgemental, less picky, but sometimes it just slipped out. At least he could find something to respect in Remi's occupation. "An Alchemist? That is a good profession. I have read the works of many of the Alchemists of my world."

Placing the paint on the table along with a brush, he nodded. "Yes. Where I come from we used to paint the myths in tombs to guide the dead. I thought...it would be a nice gesture to have as many cultures as I could represented on these walls. Even if it turns out to not be true, perhaps it will be a comfort to souls or their families." Was it cruel to lie, or crueller to take away hope? Abasi had still not decided, but for now the wall paintings stayed.

"Please, feel free to add your own. You must have some idea of what will happen."
