Of course, the problem was that there were other dreams that involved other gargoyles being absorbed by hybrid creatures. At least one gargoyle had convincingly posed as a human policeman, nearly killing Danielle and her family. What wasn’t certain was whether there were more of these hybrids. And what if these creatures could pose as other gargoyles, not just as humans? Kimar wondered. How would they be discovered? How many might there be? Is this just a trick of Kahrnahrgx? Is his hope to cause such fear or distraction that we drop our guard?
“Perhaps they have been infiltrating our ranks for some time, yes?” Kimar remembered clearly the dread he’d felt when Lohxnahr posed that question to him, in spite of the resolute lilt in the voice of his High Priest. “We must be watchful. Open. Most aware. In this, we will be tested, Kimar. And in this, we can rejoice since closer we must become. Closer than we have ever been before. In this, the enemy’s cunning bears a gift, if we maintain our hope and our faith in one another. Until the ending of this duplicity, we must accept that anyone who has left our sight may return to us as another. Trust will be most precious and still more difficult. Even your finest lieutenants you must suspect. You would do well not to speak of this matter to anyone, Kimar. Not even to Ercen.”
