They say the gods laugh at the arrogance of men, and while he has always seen that as a rather crude idiom for a pretty basic sense of nature, he could not deny the possibility of it after he'd stepped into the strange garden. As of yet the memory of the manor is still too fresh to not immediately realize the parallels between the enchanted silent-then-not forest and the maze-like set of paths that leads through it. There's even a moment of silent resignation, when he assumes to have, yet again, fallen to some enchanted architecture's self-titled clever trap, before he begins to notice the motes. A trail of lights in such circumstances seem about as normal a path to take as any, a faith rewarded when he (eventually) exits the forest to stand before the temple proper.
When people of the market told him about the Temple, he assumed something more.. godly, one could say. For all intents and purposes, the façade part seemed more akin to a roofless library overrun with vines than a place of worship (though he likewise reminds himself it is not, in fact, such a place. At least, not in the traditional sense). Whatever the décor or its origins, however, it also happens to be the only place in town that sold the kind of potions he needs.
The knight walks up the promenade of low stone walls and off-set gardens, approaching the white stone deck. As something shifts on the rugs, he notes with some surprise (and minor annoyance, given the visual similarities to a certain noodle) that the Temple appears to be.. run by a dragon?
A piece of information people forgot to mention, but one he could have otherwise dealt with. When suddenly foreign thoughts invade his mind, however, the knight tenses, instinct giving way to reflex as he defensively raises the glaive, eyes scouring the surroundings for the source of soundless words.
