Rahab, Keeper Of The Faith
Rahab ferried the bodies of the dead into the sea. His promise to mankind was to bring them to a place where they would never be disturbed. They prayed that the abyss would give the dead peace. No one could know for sure except the grim Watcher. That dark place was his home and his alone. The passage into darkness was a place of no return. That is its nature.

Rahab, Angel of the Deep
pleas never completed
through mouthfuls of brine
sails snapping free
and departing like wraiths
jars of grain opening
on their way to the dark
Fallen from grace, once the angel of death, now he is little more than a banished soul chained to the depths of the ocean. He is a tortured soul indeed. Unfavored, unloved, unwanted but still the faithful lamb. Lost to the light of day and the house of man, he is still the master of the abyss and must be respected.
