@TQ Matt has explained that the Somnovem had this idea to escape a catastrophe by projecting themselves and their city to the astral sea. They gifted eyes to Lucien in exchange for help bringing them back to the material plane (therefore I assume there are 9 of them, and the name "eyes of nine" is meaningful only in this context: the gifts to Lucien). And they keep asking to random corpses: what do the eyes of nine mean to you? How would they know!! they've been dead for centuries 😂
