If Archipelago were an extremely silly musical, it would be at this point that Kor would sing this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FR7wOGyAzpw Actually this video has very little to do with Archipelago, I just find it highly amusing.
Kor's heir ability is living to inanimate transfiguration. Basically, he converts living things into pure magic and pours that raw energy into a new shape (such as a sword) while still maintaining the life force of the living thing(s). In other words, the birds are still alive and well and can be turned back later, if you were worrying about that. I know I was.Uploaded by admin at 02:39 on 15 October
