this natural spring, located in the equatorial region of the moon of Lamus, was the source of all water on the moon. Its importance to all life on Lamus was discovered by the early generations of the A'Mar, who held a sort of religious awe for the location. Visitors to Lamus were allowed to visit the site, but were not allowed to actually touch the spring. The history of the A'Mar indicates that the first humans to visit the Wellspring were reluctant to drink from it. This first visit coincided with the thirty-year occurance of Lamus' sunless day, an event that caused fear among these early A'Mar. However, as the ring of fire in the sky began to set, the A'Mar gave into their thirst and drank from the Wellspring. They were instantly revitalized, and shortly afterward the sun rose in the morning sky. The A'Mar understood something of the celestial mechanics behind this series of events, but hung onto their initial fear. This led to the creation of The Vigil.
