Sebastian is currently on sabbatical outside of the Avalon continent and indeed report has reached the land from the sailors plying their trade in the western seas. The tales speak of witnessing a great, luminescent form pacing back and forth before the Doors of the Night. The divine figure was recognised by some as Sebastian himself; not yet departed through the eternal portal but getting closer and closer to this fateful denouement.
Words are fading as the deity loosens his ties to Avalon:
"From the Song of Creation that gave birth to Immortal and mortal alike, it is the actions and thoughts of those that would shape the fortunes of all. And through all fortune is the power to make a change. The past, the present, and the future - it is all entwined in my Eye. I know what it is you see, for it is also in my mind. The world is changing. I feel it in the water; I feel it in the earth; I smell it in the air."
