The numena - important characters in MemoryAndDream, called to our world "from the stories in the before" through the means of art; this is mainly through paintings, but allegedly this can also happen through stories or music, although this is only mentioned as a possibility. Numena are closely and vitally connected to their paintings and die when they get destroyed. (One can but wonder what the lifeline of musical/narrative numena would be?)

Note: CDL has got his Latin a bit wrong here, the plural should be "numina", not "numena" - the dictionary has it as
numen
n : a spirit believed to inhabit an object or preside over a
place (especially in ancient Roman religion)
[also: numina (pl)]


Some of the numena:
