”We were the first who died on Canticle. The first to live in this land and devise the designs of flight—based on the ships that brought us here. But then we died and rose as shades. Remembering.—A shade in the Chorus
They are kept in an open glass drum on the largest ships towards the middle of settlements. Those in the Chorus are able to be divided among settlements by transferring some of the smoke from their Reliquary.
A group of Threnodites fled to Canticle, and the first to die became shades that would later be known as the Chorus. They hold the history of those who fled to the planet, and build ships for those still alive. No more shades have been made on Canticle since the Chorus.
