| I don't think location association had anything to do with it- the guy was too stupid to get out of Death Valley and instead decided to sit there and waste his aura stopping himself from sweating.|
Could the flute, then, be Ancient in origin? It's too gentle to be Archon, not beastial enough to be Earthlord, and we already know that a lot of people suspect that Abraham had some Ancient blood in him as the Ancients spoke of an aged teacher. I'm thinking Abraham was part-Great Elder part-Ancient which is why the enchantment on the Codex functions in a similar way to the enchantment on the flute- it's the Ancients' version of a personal lock.
It could be an ancient. However, we know that the swords and the flutes both have mystory origins-could Marethyu have been associated with creating them?
Also, I believe that some Elders, like Egyptian elders, may have been able to survive Death valley, at least long enough to escape. Location may or may not have had anything to do with it, but, in my expierance, someone who grew up in the dessert is likely to survive longer without resorting to using something like an aura to keep them worm, as opposed to someone who grew up in a cooler climate, who immediately uses their last chance. However, I agree that they were most likely not a nature god, or one able to travel quickly, as would be needed to escape death valley.
