I'm not sure what you mean by "Final Death". I associate this with being consumed by chaos and therefore unable to be reborn.

Yet I've seen the suggestion that Babeester Gor's father is Humakt, conceived when Ernalda was hiding in the earth. Proving that life is stronger than death. I understand Humakt denies fatherhood.

TR pg. 184 has the women mourning the death of Esrola on Harvest Day.
