Sergeant Balm (a Dal Honese), in a drug-induced reverie, saw Imparala Ar as a huge beetle with a wedge-shaped head. 'Huge', that is, for a beetle - the Dung God, standing, antennae waving, would come up to Balm's kneecaps. Imparala Ar spoke to the Sergeant in a voice of thunder - "minute thunder", appropriately - and, unsurprisingly, Balm found that the Dung God stank.
- "You [humans], conveyor[s] of waste and maker[s] of rubbish! Follow me, and we shall eat our way into the very Abyss itself!"
