Like the other day
I thought you won’t be coming back
I came to realize my lackluster dreams
If I have been thoughtless, let me know
I can take a hint you know, though I’m a little slow
Just don’t keep it in you, lest it take root and grow
The bottom line here’s I love you so
So let me run to your shelter tonight
Run from this meaningless pantomime
I’ll swallow my pride, give up the pretence
Of bowing to false kings
It’s the little things, little things, little things, that make the world
It’s the little things, little things, little things
Hiding deep within, doors cry opening
Lead into the light of love deep like the sea
Rich in variety, heartfelt and open, wide like a life, unique, yet so alike
The dance of flames and shadows in the street
Make poetry nobody’s ever heard
The weight of loneliness stands on your feet
The cage already there around the bird
So hey, hey hey, hush, don’t be crying now, hear.
I’ve got this madman in my mind, this prolific designer
and he’s working overtime and he gets all wired up
higher and higher as we fly, we’re poets of the fall
Yeah, I know, we go deeper than skin
But what lies within is still deeper than we know
Even after these disastrous setbacks, Caithe persisted in her efforts to reunite her friends. She managed her first breakthrough when she assisted Eir in driving off the Sons of Svanir from a kodan sanctuary ship, the Honor of the Waves. Deep in the frigid halls of the glacier-city, Caithe eventually convinced Eir to return to the guild. Destiny’s Edge would reunite just in time to join the Pact force’s assault into The Ruined City of Arah, joined by the Pact Commander. First boarding The Humble and taking down multiple dragon champions, the airship was damaged in the battle and Destiny’s Edge was forced aboard The Glory of Tyria, which had confronted the Elder Dragon Zhaitan. Utilizing the Pact’s weaponry, the forces on The Glory of Tyria finally felled the Elder Dragon, and Caithe had finally completed her Wyld Hunt, witnessing the Elder Dragon fall to its demise.
Being prompted by another vision from Aurene sometime later, the Commander visited Tarir again and conversed with the dragon’s defenders, including Caithe. The Firstborn explained that life in Tarir had been calm since the Commander’s previous visit, and she let the Commander know how much she appreciated being allowed to watch over the rambunctious scion. She also continued pondering about the future of the sylvari. After listening to the Commander’s reassuring words, Caithe suggested the Commander go meet with Aurene to begin the trials the Exalted had set up to strengthen the bond between the pair.
Personal story [ edit ]
As the others argued about this troubling new power and if Aurene would follow in her grandfather’s footsteps, Aurene grew frustrated by her inability to speak and defend herself. Caithe finally offered herself to the scion as a vessel to speak through and willingly stepped into Aurene’s Brand as the scion rose in front of her. Teal crystalline flowers blossomed over Caithe as a deep mental and emotional bond joined her and Aurene in an experience which was far different from the violent subjugation of Kralkatorrik’s Branding. Speaking through Caithe, Aurene uttered her first words: “I am not him.”
However, Kralkatorrik recovered at the last moment and fired another blast of dragon energy to kill the Commander, only to be countered by the scion who darted in front of it and fired a blast of her own. The resulting explosion destroyed one of the Crystal Dragon’s eyes but also caused the scion to be impaled on Branded spikes, killing her as her visions had foretold. Wounded but victorious, Kralkatorrik managed to shake himself free from Aurene’s Brand and returned to the Mists. Caithe eventually joined the other allies at Aurene’s pierced corpse, and she collapsed as her crystal blooms faded away, confirming that Aurene was truly gone. Both Caithe and the Commander wept upon witnessing the passing of the scion whom they had viewed as their daughter. 
Heart of Thorns [ edit ]
She and the Commander pieced together clues about the explosion, the involvement of the White Mantle, and that someone appeared to have been in the center of it to deliberately absorb the released magic for reasons that remained unclear. Troubled by this development, Caithe decided to let the Commander rejoin the rest of the investigating party while she stayed behind at the site to search for more clues.
