True. But they ARE in league with Erebus ("the darkness of Death" - that is
the literal definition of the word). The fact that the New Sun eventually
overcomes the darkness does change with whom they through their lot.

After the Deluge, there is no more Ascia and the Ascians are no longer
"shadowless". And if Erebus had won, there would be no New Sun and the
Concilliator's title and *declared* destiny would have been academic.
