With what color shall I sew his heart up? He doesn’t seem quite like an orange, certainly not a pink. Perhaps a red? A yellow instead?
Blue or green, you suggest? Why, I couldn’t possibly. He never had a cool head about him when he was alive, and those colors simply wouldn’t do. You wanted me to make him into a lich, yes? Something more than a mindless zombie? Then trust me. You want to get everything just right, or you’ll throw the personality all out of whack. You don’t want a lich with the personality of Pantone 448C.
Ah, this is what I was looking for. A deep red, not quite a maroon. Somber, polite, yet invigorating. Let me stitch up the heart, then we’ll move on to select some liver additives…
