. . .because of the defiance of|one person.
He was a wild spirit and this was|always to be his fate.
You talk as if he's already dead
Even if he does survive this time,|he's a greener. . .
. . .so set your sights elsewhere|for a husband.
The gods took your father|in the night.
As long as we stay here, there'll|never be enough to eat. Never.
Then we'd all be struck down.
Have you ever seen one?
Has anyone here ever seen one?
The stories are true.
The gods used to live here.
. . .and cruel. So the gods left. . .
. . .allowing the demons|to descend from the sky.
. . .so that one day they will come back|and drive away the demons.
That is our fate.
Only if you believe in fate.
I'm sorry. I can't take you.
I can't handle myself|as well as a man?
-No.|-You arrogant greener.
You can handle yourself|better than most men. . .
. . .which is why you need|to help the village.
Your mother gave this to me|before she died.
She hoped it'd be passed|to your children.
It's for good luck.
Don't let anything happen|to you out there.
So you're the beast|we're all afraid of.
Not a lot of meat on a dragon.
You have been fortunate in the hunt.
I hope you thanked the gods.
-A nonbeliever.|-I believe what I can see.
A nonbeliever, huh?|You from the caves?
Probably never seen a god.|Would you like to?
-What do you know about gods?|-We've seen gods. Rock and l.
You lying thieves.
Wait a minute.
Wait a minute, we're hunting.
No time to show you gods with no food.
We need food. We must hunt.|Nonbeliever.
First you show me the god.
Then we eat.
When the gods left this world,|they ordered man not to look at them.
This one did. . .
. . .and was left behind,|frozen as punishment.
Are you sure this was a god?
I thought you said you believe|what you can see.
If you need proof. . .
. . .when the sun goes down, you can see|the rest of the gods in the sky.
They're the bright lights.
The evil beasts hunt in the dark.|We need to find shelter.
There's a cave over here.
What's a "greener"?
Maybe she was right.
No, you keep it. You keep it.
Where we're from, a good woman|is a hard thing to find.
. . .why don't you tell me where she is|so I can go get her for myself?
Forget about me.|Get out of here. I can't move!
Oh, heavenly gods!
Don't breathe the air!
My chest is on fire!
It helps you breathe. Take it!
Get off my brother.
-What's he saying?|-Don't know.
