Rakiah: Examine pile of... colorful objects?
That’s your collection of FRUITS. These are the native flora of this deserted island, and are highly TOXIC to those not acclimated. They’re definitely extremely bad for you. But bereft of sopor and not in a position to suffer through day/night terrors, you rely on them as a SOPORIFIC SUBSTANCE. While vile and unpleasant, imbibing their FERMENTED JUICES inhibits the worst of the terrors, and shields your inner gaze from the HORRORS OF THE DEEP. Bathing in their pulp in a sort of sopor-substitute takes care of the rest.
Not like it matters. You wrestle horrors from the deep every night.
