The Dawn Throne

A very comfy throne

"I am above Dhavians now...  
— Someone while sitting in the Dawn Throne.
 

General

The Dawn Throne is said to be one of the grandest Artifacts of Power in all of Vael'Eteria and was created by Architect Himself prior to the Dawn of Time. It amplified His awareness of Vael'Eteria to an unknown degree, and allowed Him to focus on specific matters with a calm and clear mind.  
 

Location

Its location can only be speculated but some wonder if it is not possible that it exists in more than one place at a time.
It may be located at the center of White Sanctum, or at the top of Dawn Mountain, or perhaps somewhere within Cericor Palace.
Wherever it is, none but Guardian Himself is said to have laid eyes on it since the Great Sorrow, although scattered witness accounts mention a majestic and awe-inspiring throne just appearing on a grass field one day, or in an old abandoned shed near a sparsely traveled road, before vanishing without a sound a short time later.  
 

The Throne of Omnipotence...

"The ultimate answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything is...  
— The Voice of the Dawn Throne.
Whoever sits on the Dawn Throne is said to gain awareness of the whole of Vael'Eteria and quite possibly even within the bounds of greater Miand'Mésvéstell. Awareness befitting that of the Creator of Existence: Pure and raw Omnipotence.
Only a certain few, regardless if they are Nelathi or even Selathi will be capable of grasping it. A majority of these few know the need to focus all of the Throne's potential on merely one or two focus points. Even then, madness might slash at their minds.
One offer the Throne is said to give, however, is the ultimate answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything. But it is never what anyone expects. Not truly.  
 
"Seriously...  
— Guardian Himself, after hearing what a certain
someone asked the Throne.
 

Appearance and feel

"There exist no more comfortable seat in all of Creation...  
— Guardian Himself, regarding how comfy the Throne is.
It has either a flowing or rigid design and appears to be made out of unnaturally white marble that is as reflective as a still ocean surface on a sunny day. It seems to emit a faint light of its own that is warm and has a calming effect on chaotic minds. Beyond that, it also softens any stiff muscles and neck cramps, as well as any soreness, both on a physical and metaphysical level.
It is lukewarm to the touch, though it might feel warmer or colder depending on the surrounding temperature; colder in warmer climates and vice versa. It also smells of sweet honey and vanilla, something that will register in people, even if they have no concept of either of those things.  
 

The Voice of the Dawn Throne

"Are you sure you wish to understand the truth? It is the last answer you will be able to comprehend before you are no more...  
— The Voice of the Dawn Throne.
Similar to nearly every creation of Architect, be it conscious or subconscious, the Dawn Throne has acquired a mind of its own, though Guardian Himself would not exactly call it sapient.
It asks questions to whoever sits on the Throne or answers questions if so prompted, even if the knowledge the awareness of the Throne gives is implemented directly into the mind.
Due to its nature, the presence is theoretically aware of all there is in Vael'Eteria and even slightly of that which is outside its bounds. However, it is slightly different in practice: Unless someone sits on it, the Throne is only aware of all things that occur in the Realm(s) it is currently located in.
According to those few who have used the chair and survived the ordeal, say that the Voice of the Dawn Throne sounded tired and at points unfocused. As it is could fall asleep at any time, or could care less if the one who sits on it goes mad or not. The only times it becomes alert is if the questioner asks questions about the larger ordeal. Especially the Urh, the Servita, or the Absenté, as well as any questions concerning the Great Sorrow.

I feel like I'd ask the throne what the most academically enlightening question one could ask it might be. That alone might reveal volumes about the nature of our universe.   Nice Hitchhiker's reference in there!
