This episode was one of my most emotional ones yet. In our previous encounter of Ma’at, he had no depth as a character and next to no back story. The main purpose of this episode was to set up his background and make him into a real character. Also in this episode, I have the death of Themis, the Lord of Order. I introduced Themis purely for the purpose of this episode, to launch Ma’at into his position as the new Lord of Order. To elaborate on Themis’ illness, he was supposed to be so connected to the Cosmic Order, that when the balance was shifted towards darkness, he became terminally sick. A little history, Themis had been sick since Apep first became fully possessed by darkness, which means he was sick when he first took on Ma’at as a student.
