Black Cowls on the Move

A person in a black cowl entered the room were the 7 were waiting. They all had their black hoods pulled down low to hide their faces from the light of the single candle flickering in the middle of the room. The 8th completed the circle.

"I bring news from the other councils. The day we have prepared for has finally come! Our master has summoned us to follow him into battle."
In unison the 8 chanted "Hallowed is HE who guides us!"
"Gather your acolytes and get them ready to move out. We will leave with the first rays of sunlight tomorrow morning."
"Hallowed is HE who perfects us!"
"Since HE left HIS deserts in the south to guide us to apotheosis, HE taught us that the day of the final ordeal is near. Rejoice brothers, for this day has come! The last step towards apotheosis lies ahead of us!"
"In HIS steps we follow!"
"All information you need for your journey is in the envelopes here. We will meet again at our destination. Brothers, join me for the last conjoint prayer of this council!"

The 8 creatures raised their arms and together looked up to the painting. The flickering light was just enough to illuminate the embossed shape of the winged creature at the ceiling of the small chamber. And the prayer started.
