MIA Log: Ferxal Escoth Dhoraim.
There are many people here with wildly different pasts, and possibly none so curious and interesting as the story of Terenia and Efaen. Terenia was born Human, managed to gain access to the morphing ability, and eventually become a Yeerk nothlit. While in that state, she enslaved an Andalite named Efaen, and came under the employment of Visser Three to rescue her sister. Information on her sister indicates she was a voluntary host, so the term rescue may not be accurate.
It boggles the mind that, when Ossanlin found out about her, Terenia wasn't promptly imprisoned and starved out. A second abomination is a terrible thought, and I have found nothing about Terenia to indicate she was anything more than an insignificant Human child trapped as a Yeerk. This seems to be Seerow's Kindness levels of foolishness, and has given me cause to keep a closer eye on the Prince I serve under. Especially since this mercy came at the cost of the lives of his Yeerk rebel allies.
Not by Terenia's hand directly. It was actually Efaen's fault. I have conflicting information on this, as one of my sources is Claxter, who has a fondness for Efaen. My personal opinion is that he's scapegoating everything on Terenia, made easier by Terenia's abrasive attitudes. For some reason she disparages the Andalites for getting involved, despite the fact that by all rights they should have killed her. I know my former Prince probably would have shredded both Terenia and Efaen together.
On the topic of Efaen's betrayal, she was given the opportunity to join Ossanlin and resume life as a free Andalite. Instead she took an offer to join the rebellion just so she could turn on them once she gained enough of their trust. This is a breach of honor, brought on by dishonesty and blind hatred. Her duty may have been to her people, but she forgot her honor. I have learned that terenia decided to wipe her mind in order to spare her life, which is contrary to my information that they hated each other. Currently they get along reasonably. This is a confusing manner that i can't really speak on, since I have no study in psychology.
The idea of a person being mind wiped disturbed me. I have been assured that all hosts are voluntary, and the only person I have seen resist infestation is a Human that's gone insane from the tortures of the empire. Still, who is the say these hosts are only voluntary because their memories have been erased, and they were given new ones. Efaen is dedicated to the rebels, even though she has no right to be. I have found no information to indicate the rebels make a habit of this, and Ossanlin is confident they don't, but it's still a troubling thought.
It is difficult to trust anyone here completely, and probably best that I don't. I will continue my observations and recordings. Sometimes the longer I stay here, the more I wish I had just slit my throat, but I can't turn back now. I will walk this road to its conclusion.
