Vostel was on circuit along the edge of the Pelagirs when he had the misfortune to stumble too close to a firebird's nest. He was very badly burned over much of his body, and spent a very long time at the House of Healing recovering from his injuries. Talia treated him by planting automatic wordless emotional messages into his looping thoughts. Every time he decided he was to blame for his injuries he'd get 'So next time I won't be so stupid!' Every time he was ready to give up from the pain he'd get 'But it isn't as bad as yesterday, and it'll be better tomorrow.'
