A dark-skinned female human says 'The runes along the edges of the jar appear to be of necromantic origin, a type used to involve links across distance. The ashes in the jar could be from any creature really, though the sheer amount seems to indicate that whatever burned cannot have been bigger than a halfling or gnome.'

A dark-skinned female human says 'There are a number of ancient bedtime nursery tales which tell of evil magicians stealing naughty children from their parents, and using their ashes in various cruel experiments, but most are considered merely tools to attempt to inspire some manner of fear and good behaviour.'

A dark-skinned female human says 'There are, however, also fairly credible reports of groups of necromancers using the body part of children in experiments, as it is believed their lack of conscientious understanding of the nature of necromancy allows the dark energy to flow easier through them. One ritual tells of the ashes of a child being used to scry upon the area in which the magically treated eyes of same child is found.'

A dark-skinned female human says 'The link between the two would be created through the flows of dark energy, maintained by the performance of a ritual wherein a perfect circle is drawn with the child's ash. The performer of the ritual steps inside the circle and is able to scry the location of the eyes.'
