Fell asleep in a brothel and dropped his pipe setting the place on fire. Ran naked and screaming through the streets, as he used essence to keep himself from burning to death.
Began composition of a series of simple songs designed to be sung along with doing farm and peasant work. These songs in conjunction with a few simple dance moves and drawing in dirt and sand are intended to help people learn the basics of how to read.

Fell asleep in a brothel dropping his pipe and setting the place on fire. Several of Black Flies followers who were stalking him receive minor burns, the scars of which become a sort of status symbol among Black Fly devotees.

Burns become a growing hidden symbol of Solar Exalted and Black Fly allegiance.
