Red Wanderer, brightest of the stars since the last moon, what is the meaning of your sudden brilliance? While others shine white, your glow is the color of auroch's blood that covers our hunters after the kill. Your appearance is a portent, a warning to the others who have invaded our great valley, speaking with strange tongues and wielding new weapons. We are large and powerful; they are weak and fragile. We kill the lion and the cave bear; they run from the gazelle! Crimson is your cast, the blood of the others that we will shed unless they leave our hunting grounds. For we are great and all-powerful, taller and stronger than our enemies. We will surely triumph over them, and they will be no more, so that when you return to visit this sacred land, only the pure eyes of our people will greet you.
