Why enter the code backward? Let’s eavesdrop on Allemantheia HQ:
“So we distribute these ‘runic passwords’ to our elite soldiers. I get that,” Elleon said as he flipped through piles of neatly stacked parchment. “Here’s what I don’t get. Why does it have to be so…elaborate?”
Fraya tamped out her pipe on the edge of the desk, then raised an eyebrow. “Elaborate?”
Elleon picked up a parchment sheet. “Listen to this one…actually, look at it instead. How do you even pronounce this?”
Unable to keep the smirk from her lips, Fraya enunciated each rune in the password, then handed the sheet back to Elleon.
“It’s not really a matter of pronunciation, is it?” she said. “You’re worried that it’s too hard to remember.”
Elleon looked away. “Well, my mind is as sharp as my blades, but…other soldiers could have a hard time remembering it in the heat of battle.”
Fraya’s smirk became a grin. “Other soldiers. I see.” She picked up another parchment.
“There’s a good reason the password is elaborate, Elleon. We’re planning ahead.” She walked over to the globe, spinning it idly with an impossibly long finger. “Right now, we’re fighting the argons around the world. It might not look like it, but we’re winning.”
Fraya turned to face Elleon. “There will come a time when this war will change. A time when we need to make one great push to victory. A time when the entire Valkyon Federation will evolve.”
The silver circuitry that criss-crossed Fraya’s skin glowed. “I guess you know a thing or two about evolution,” Elleon said, almost too quiet to hear.
“The runic passwords are ordinary passwords right now, but there’s a secret within the secret. On the day when our armies must evolve into something greater, we will reverse the runes. There’s a potent thread of magic there, just waiting to be unleashed.” Fraya smiled. “Provided you and your cohorts can remember them, of course.”
