- "The revelations say that when the sun dies five times, a red lake will appear to the west of the city with a name both new and old. [...] It is proof that the fifth angel will alight. The angel is the Hawk of Darkness. The master of the sinful black sheep, the king of the blind white sheep. The one who shall call upon the world an age of darkness." – The prophecy of the Hawk, as recounted by Azan and Farnese
The first sentence pertains to the location where the fifth Eclipse takes place: a field west of Windham, where a small lake becomes tainted red with the ravaged sacrificial remains of the Band of the Hawk. The next three sentences detail the events to come following Griffith's rebirth as Femto of the God Hand, along with his eventual return to the physical realm as master of the apostles and champion of humanity. The final part alludes to the culmination of Femto's preeminence, which, thus far, has brought about the World Transformation and subsequent influx of astral beings, both benign and malign, into the world of man.
