It seems the animists are in the enviable position of being able to keep a tight rein on Shai and friends.
Of course Shaitan, who we all know keeps his word without fail, vows not to harm any animists... what else can he do? But I for one would take anything he said with a grain... nay, a sackful, of salt.
Now that those who live for tormenting others are beholden to the animists, maybe we are entering a new era... one where wholesale slaughter is rare , if not altogether eradicated.
One can only hope.
