As Little Stub-Tail rapidly undergoes the sad process turning to stone, they use their remaining time to reflect on their life, and give thanks to the wonderful Mole-Digger Tribe.
They share how their current tribe gave help when they lost part of their tail to a monster. They explain that they used to live with another tribe — however, those in the old tribe were very cowardly and were often too afraid to help each other. Little Stub-Tail was constantly living in fear, until they joined the Mole-Digger Tribe. In comparison, The Mole-Digger Tribe truly acts as a family, caring for each other and willing to take risks to protect the tribe.
Little Stub-Tail next brings up Little Weaver, praising the significance of the gift of clothing to their tribe. This is important, as Eltus peoples highly value becoming as civilized as possible. This is because they have linked humanity to levels of civilization — the more civilized, the more human they become. Sieg sergals often are uncivilized, primitive, and slightly animal-like in lifestyle, so in order to reach a truly human existence, behaving civilized and wearing outfits is crucial to them. Thus, Little Weaver has helped the tribe grow closer to this step in becoming truly human.
As the stone-like change creeps across their face, Little Stub-Tail faces their final moments. They use this to share their conviction that the Mole-Digger Tribe will soon blossom into adulthood. They believe that the tribe will find a place to live that is safe and secure, where the soil beneath their feet is firm and supportive, and there will be plenty to eat so they no longer will suffer hunger.
Finally, Little Stub-Tail says “I know we will”, the key word being “we”. This is significant because as explained earlier they believe that their soul essence will soon rejoin with the collective essence of the entire group, until a new baby is born. Thus, while the farewell is indeed sad, it is an accepted part of the circle of life and death for the Sieg peoples.
