Way of the Wicked
There is no Shajad or Beryl as inscrutable and unfeeling as The Spirit of Emptiness.
Edamiel is separated from the world by her own choice, and unlike her sisters, she is not interested in becoming integrated with it. In the beginning, she tried to incarnate pleasure, the only feeling that brought her some satisfaction. Unfortunately, she soon realized not even that was enough to fill the void she carried inside, and she slowly drifted apart from reality until she disappeared. This is how she involuntarily came to represent abstract notions—like ignorance and nothingness—that neither Light nor Dark wanted to pick up.
In a way, she has a vague concept of how impossible it is for living beings to really achieve happiness, since however intense that feeling may be, it is meant to fade. According to her, the only way for every being is to become one with emptiness and disappear forever without guilt, suffering, or grief. All of her sisters are horrified by her attitude and try to help her, but until now, they have tolerated her without admitting the great threat Edamiel poses to existence. Once in a while, she will fall back to her old incarnation and set pleasure and desire loose in the world, but she often uses them as emotions to confuse the senses and throw people into nothingness. She has worshippers among many cultures, where she has adopted several identities as a deity of desire and pleasure. Alarmingly, the number of individuals synchronizing with her is a lot higher than one would expect—from people governed by worldly pleasures to lonely beings with no intention of integrating with the world.
