For those that haven't heard...I'd like to inform everyone that Grianne passed away this weekend. She was a good friend and she'll be missed by many.

The details of her passing is gruesome from what I've heard so I'll refrain from sharing. If you'd like to pay your respects, there is a memorial topic in OoT.

:( I am really shocked to learn this had happened. I have know Kyrin before she and I beaten Maat.

All I have to say is what my grandfather said to me last year: "If you can see me one more time, it is one more time for you that you had seen me." And that applied to everyone and not just to my 80+ grandfather. Better care and treasure the opportunities you get to care and talk to someone.

It is not will the most shocking, unexpected, sad thing will happen or not, it is when it will happen. It is best take nothing for granted, and talk, care and love to them when the opportunity is still there.

Shocked, confused and sad. My condolences go out to her family and friends.

One of Cerberuses old school players. Still remember her from back in the day, our ways kinda parted in FFXI a while ago, different LS's etc, but nonetheless, you belonged to our Cerberus family and will be missed.

Kyrin has never done well in Internet popularity contests, but I wanted to say, people should remember Kyrin as a person, not Kyrin as pixels. Kyrin is often not the easiest person to deal with, but she never acted intentionally in bad faith. Kyrin is a good person, a friend, no matter how hard it is to deal with her.

You may not specifically like what Kyrin has said and done in the game. But I wanted to ask people to at least step back one moment to remember there is a person behind the screen.

I am getting so old school that I do not give a **** to a lot of things in the game -- I think most people will know that I will have probably do things differently if I do give so much **** into it. It has been long time I actually played the game to be a loot or achievement *****; yet I think this game's loot and internet achievement whoring has never been as big as it is now. In the end, this is still just a freaking game.

While I didn't know her very well, Grianne was part of my endgame linkshell, and I'm very saddened to hear about this tragedy, especially with a person with so much life ahead of them. My condolences to her family, friends, and all who knew her.

It is only in absolutely respectfulness that I use one of my hymns in memory of her. One of my master pieces designed to ease the minds of the saddened. The language used is the long forgotten emotion language called hymmnos. Translation in brackets. The ending has been extended for obvious....reasons...

EXEC_HYMME_REFORMATION/. Nosaash oz quivale(Goddess of Winter)

Ma num ra famfa elle ciellenne art beja celetille fwal fwal,
en cexm tou ar ciel enw wearequewie ar dius sphilar.
ar dius sphilar whou acra ks wael ween syec hopb mea.
aiph mea yor wis pitod, chs nnoi an yor.

(Feeling empty, I flew from the sky on wings of marred beauty)
(and come to this world in search of a uniquely noble spirit.)
(One who will surely seed joy in abyss of my heart.)
(If we can be together, I'll become one with you.)

llizz cerchio, llizz faiy kierre,
eux mea lapo yor.
Rrha ki ra viss ar dius sphilar whou enter syec spiritum,
en zenva wi gyaje cecet beng chs pic dius sor.

(In a chance of possibility, a chance of a transient moment,)
(My eyes met yours.)
(I'll concentrate absolutely on understanding the noble spirit who will enter the pit of my soul,)
(and transcend the falsely-built barriers within before realising its own nobility.)

Rrha yea ra firle re gyuss so, re yanwe so,
enclone sora art fwal fwal lusye.
Was ki ra sora wis nene ridalnae harton,
en nene ridalnae lapo.

(I'm completely blissful about feeling such am embrace, such kindness,)
(and will surround them with wings of light.)
(These feelings are made of love unfathomable and irreplaceable,)
(and a chance meeting incomprehensible and without equal.)

mahin yuez houd, aa... cest warma.
Was yea ra fwal yor tes ciel, fwal won ciel tes ciellenne.
famfa tou ciel won ar ciel, Was apea ra arsye harton anw yor.
na llizz ene hierle enw ferda yanje kierre.

(Holding each other hands, ah... Truly warm.)
(I'll be very happy to carry you to the sky, carry you over the sky to the heavens.)
(Soaring to the world above the world, I'm immersed in joy to be sharing this love with you.)
(Sadness cannot exist as long as we live in this everlasting moment.)

ides re fountaina fandel zash so, fandel crudea so.
Wee zweie ra infel wis ar dsier mea.


(The past was filled with so much pain, so much suffering.)
(I honestly wish that love can be my sole desire.)

getrra fwillra oz fwal fwal has linen wi akata.
la akata oz sasye whou tek tes syec noes, en syec ciel walasye
sos lapo ar dius sphilar whou suwant hopb en sphilar noes has.

(The withering feathers from her flight tell this story.)
(A story of a girl who ventured into the abyss of her self, and the lower world of the people)
(To meet with the one who would save her heart and her mind.)

Upon finding the one, she takes him to the air..ascending into the heavens, forever resting in peace - loved eternally..


~_~ I'm thrashed. I hit "edit message" instead of preview to make changes.. oh well. There is it. Will miss you Kyrin D;.

Smiley: cry I never thought that losing someone you only lightly knew through text could be such an emotional experience, but it really makes me sad. I knew her through the OoT and I was so excited because she was the first OoTer from cerberus (As far as I knew) and had a lot of fun conversing with her in game. Now it just makes me sad I never got the chance to know her better, or anything. Smiley: frown RIP...

I could not agree more.

Grianne and I hadn't conversed much in recent months, but I had always though highly of her. My heart goes out to her friends and family, and I hope that she is resting in peace.

I can't say that Grianne and I talked a lot, but from what little we did I knew that she was a great person. She seemed to have wonderful things ahead of her, and lord knows she deserved better. I'm going to miss her a lot. She worked hard for the things she had and went above and beyond everyone's expectations. She was one of the great ones, and she will surely be missed by many.

I'm not sure if her family will ever see this, but I hope they know that she made a huge impact on people all across the world.

I don't know if this is a proper tribute or respect or anything but I felt like sharing.

I made this during last year's Summerfest.

I guess I'll always have something to remember the good times when we were still friends. :'(

I'm currently working on a project with Darqflame to put together a wiki page in memory of Kylin. I wanted to include some form of eulogy to go with the hymn and comments so far received.

What I need are some stories of Kylin from her friends. Send them via PM please.

Also, since the comments will be going up on the wiki as pulled from this thread, if you want to have a different name aside from your posting name associated with your quote, please PM me with it.

And Admins, don't hate me, I'm going to be cross posting to all the threads to avoid creating new threads for threads that already exist.

I was unfortunately informed today that another recent passing had occurred in Cerberus. Swseeker has passed away because of pneumonia. :(

It has been a tough week in Cerberus.

May he rest in peace.

Swseeker was such a great guy as i'm sure many people already know. Definetly one of the friendliest people i have come across in my time playing ffxi and very dedicated to our linkshell and being the best he could.

This terrible news has made me so sad.

RIP Swseeker
