But, I gotta tell you that they can be really difficult to deal with sometimes. You see, they've been around forever and ever, so, you'd think they would be eager to share what what they've learned over that time with wizards who have only been sparked for just a few years.
And yet, that ain't how it works. They up and spring new things on us all the time - like when they decided to reveal that dragons were real and that each of us was "connected" to a dragon of our type of magic. I mean, sheesh, you'd think something like that might seem important enough to share pretty early on.
But they don't. Instead, they wait until they decide the time is right to tell us something new. And when we ask questions about why something is the way it is, they like to give us the most generic answer ever: "That is just the way of things."
I'm pretty sure that when they say that, they really mean one of two things: "we don't have any idea" or "you are too stupid to understand the reason because you haven't been around nearly as long as us."
It would be really nice, for once, to just get a straight answer far enough ahead of time that we could plan better (which, by the way, has to drive Nikko nuts because he's so obsessive about planning).
But, I guess asking them to change the way they've been for millennia isn't going to get me very far...
