Through flogging and restraints, Brody awakens a new sense of power he never thought he had, one that finds him a second wind and new perspective on power and pleasure. Under the older satyr’s guidance, Brody sees that he can control his fear and let go of his anger and rage. And, in the process, opening him up to a head space that frees him from his physical bonds.
Korzark rewards the young man with love and affection, reminding him that he’s more than animal and more than a man. As a Promethean, he’s something greater.
