The tardigrade, also known as the water bear, has traveled through history for millennia. Displaying an unshakeable courage through time, this unsung hero gives us a great lesson in humility. In the subtle world, he presides over a meeting with the aim of bringing beheaded queens back to life, beheaded from their nobility of heart.
