Clip Name: The Ephors
We will consult the oracle.
Diseased old mystics.
Worthless remnants of a time before Sparta's ascent from darkness.
Remnants of a senseless tradition.
Tradition even Leonidas cannot defy for he must respect the word of the ephors.
That is the law.
And no Spartan, subject or citizen, man or woman slave or king, is above the law.
The ephors choose only the most beautiful Spartan girls to live among them as oracles.
Their beauty is their curse for the old wretches have the needs of men and souls as black as hell.
"Pray to the winds Sparta will fall.
