IPOLA: No, Keltan, we didn’t. This isn’t part of the main complex of the Tower, and it’s rather cunningly hidden in this little dale. So it stood here, undisturbed, until last year. And, of course, it was my Tula that found it.
PANEL 2: Tula in flashback, researching in the library
IPOLA: When she came back here after meeting you, she dove into the libraries for anything about Giants. She found the traces and cross-references among ancient texts and maps and artwork. She’s as close as we can get to an expert on Giants, now.

IPOLA: A little longer than that. There are many libraries in the tower, and lots of stairs, after all. But in the end, she found it.
