There are some colors he never wants to see again. Red for blood and black for mourning, those he keeps as old companions. They are steady, constant, anchoring him to the life he left behind.
It’s blue that’s changed. At home it was the sky, the lake, but here… Here blue is the gate, the shield, the sea, her eyes. It is life and death in one; a thousand hues wound ’round that central paradox.

And blue is red.
And blue is black.
