Six meets the sister
One of the characters in Bringer of Chaos is named Six, and he’s vital to the story. Without Six, there would be no Pietas. I wanted a song to writ eto that had his name, and Deep Six works on many levels. This song is on an album called Pale Emperor. Since Pietas is an emperor in all but name, and he’s fair and blond, the album title is fitting. One of the lines is “Deep six, six, six feet deep”, which denotes death.
The number six is found throughout the book. Among the places where it’s used: Pietas accidentally knocks over a ceramic statue of a six-headed dragon; he attends peace talks on Enderium Six; there are six steps into the pool where he completes a ritual; and of course, Six is what he calls his guard, who doesn’t trust Pietas enough to reveal his real name.
The music of Marilyn Manson’s Deep Six fits well with this snippet of the book, where Pietas cautions Six about meeting Pietas’s sister.
“Don’t say another word, Six. Let me talk to my sister. Don’t get into it with her. I promise you won’t win. She broadcasts chaos as well as I do. Remember, personal chaos makes one prey.”
Six frowned. “I thought you didn’t hold with religion.”
“Not supplication pray. Victim prey.”
“Oh.” The man glanced over at Dessy, back at him. “Gotcha.”
“Are we clear?” Pietas gripped his friend’s arm. “Don’t get into it with Dessy.”
“Clear,” Six answered, but the smile that crossed his face was nothing short of wicked.

When the immortal Pietas is marooned on a barren world with no food and few survival tools, he knows it could be worse. He could be alone. But that’s the problem. He’s not.
Half a million of his people sleep in cryostasis, trapped in their pods and it’s up to Pietas to rescue them. Before he can save his people, he must take back command from a ruthless enemy he’s fought for centuries. His brutal, merciless father. Immortals may heal, but a wound of the heart lasts forever…
