This story encompasses several people. We shall explore each through
their bios here...the best way to explore this story I believe.....
Fred - This is a Frederigo D'Honaire like many others Freds. He's
a brave knight
tasked by the King to kill the Dragon of the Southern Caverns. However, unlike
other Freds, he met an Astra who was in the employment of the Dragon. This
Astra was in the service to the Dragon because the beast had her sisters as
hostage. Fred gained Astra's aid in his quest by helping free her sisters, and then
they both went and killed the dragon
However, the dragon's blood got into an open wound on Fred and Fred found
out about that blood curse that changes the slayer into dragons.
Soon he and Astra were on a desperate quest to find a rare dragon, Malachi,
who seemed to have been able to overcome her beastly nature and was
Soon, however, they got magically whisked with the others to the world
They soon found Malachi (who'd gotten teleported along with the others
to a new
world) and Fred got the curse removed before it got too far in converting Fred
into a Dragon. Fred was soon returned to normal.
Soon after meeting Astra 5a, this woman revealed to her and "her" Fred
was obvious that each had feelings for the other.
Was soon approached by a Rule and Agent and soon she and "her" Fred became
Champions like the others of their group.
Astra - This Astra Thessamer is a red haired warrior maiden, a
the beautiful warrior women of Aqualaria. She is brave, skilled, and very much
like her analog sisters. However, she was in service to the Dragon of the
Southern Caverns (Northern Caverns by Aquallarian maps) when she met "her"
Fred. Fred asked Astra how she came to be serving the dragon. She frowned,
clearly deeply unhappy. "The wyrm captured my younger sisters, Belinda, aged
eighteen, and Carola, aged just fourteen, several months ago. Then he sent a
message to our palace that unless I would come and lead his army, he would do
terrible things to them. He didn't specify what those things would be; he didn't
have to. He's a powerful mage, and if he wished he could turn them into anything
that took his fancy. When the king of a neighbouring country wouldn't co-operate
with him, the wyrm turned his only daughter into a snake-woman and then sent
her back to him. So here I am. The only assurance I have is that I will not be
required to lead his forces against my own land. I fear that the next target may be
the Kingdom, though."
Fred helped her free her sisters, and then went on to help her kill the
However, during the fight, a bit of Dragon blood got into a small open
Fred's hand during the Dragon's death and it soon became apparent that Fred
was turning into a dragon himself.
They soon went on a desperate quest to find the dragoness Malachi who seemed
to somehow overcome her draconic manners and was a benevolent creature. The
hope was the dragoness could either cure Fred of his curse, or teach Fred how to
overcome the evil nature of dragons so not be a threat to those around him.
Astra silently had promised herself that if it soon became apparent that
losing his fight with his emerging draconic nature that she'd kill him, to spare him
the pain. It would have been the hardest thing for her to do, however.
Malahci - This Malachi is like many of her analogous sisters from other
in that she is a noble sort. Noble and kind. Most of the original dragons of her
world got driven to the edge of extinction in a war with the dwarves, who were
after the Dragon's Hoards (a dragon's lifeblood). In a desperate move, the
dragon caste upon themselves a blood curse that they now can't remove. Anyone
who kills a dragon and get's any of that blood in any open wounds will themselves
be transformed into a dragon in a rather short order of time. It was a means to
continue their race through the very bodies of their sworn enemy, the dwarves.
However, the original dragons soon found it also effect other races as well!
Furthermore, their was an unexpected and unwelcome side effect. The resultant
dragon, most of the time, was evil! Soon evil dragons outnumbered good
Malachi was able to cure the Fred who'd killed the evil Dragon of the Southern
Caverns before the curse got to the point of no return.
She and the others got magically teleported to the world of the Red Pyramid
soon get offered a chance to become Champions. She, like the others, took up
the job, and now are on a Quest to neutralize the threat the Red Pyramid
represents to Fred 5a's world.
The Book that had accidently swept her and others here had modified Malachi
that she could live without her Hoard and cast magic spells, still.
The last member of this odd group is a woman also named Astra, from Fred 5a's world......
Astra 5a - Princess Astra is a royal daughter of the lands of Aqualaria.
She is a
young, tall, athletic and full-breasted redhead (because red hair is a rarity within
Aqualaria she stands out as a beauty among beauties). Being an Amazon princess
brings advantage and peril. One benefit is that she was trained early on in the
soldier's art. She not only understands the necessities of life at Court, she too is a
commander of skilful warriors. Though she knows the ways of death, her greatest
desire is the protection of life. She finds the killing of innocents -from the child in
the womb to the aged in their huts-repugnant but sees no wrong in eliminating
those who spread evil.
Astra was captured by Velus, the Dragon of the Southern Caves, and imprisoned
by him to serve as an amusement. It was Lord Fred who rescued her. After the
death of the Dragon the beast's Master, Minestus, magically transported Astra
and Fred to the Calamari Desert. After an encounter with the kind if befuddled
scientist/mage Dr Vincent she was transported by the Dragonmage Minestus to a
strange place. There she unwittingly stepped through a magical portal which sent
her to a room with no doors or windows. She then metamorphosed into a
werewolf. The dragon Minestus appeared and remade her into something else,
something resembling a were-fox, and he placed her in the woods by his lair. She
was reunited with Fred and had sexual relations with him. This had strange and
unforseen consequences. Though the magic that affected Astra is not fully
understood, she definitely became something more than just a were-fox and Fred
took on similar characteristics. The pair was met by the dragon Malachi who
helped them enter Minestus' lair in order for Malachi to take revenge upon the
evil dragon and to find the instrument of their possible cure, the Crystallic. The
two dragons fought to the death, but in her last dying breathes, Malachi instructed
Astra and Fred to journey to Walants with the Crystallic in search of the one
Walants proved trickier than they had originally thought and the two were
imprisoned the first day. They were then released under the care of their defense
ttorney Master Rift who forced them to take him and his companion Tarin-Gazin
to Minestus' lair. Half-way there the two accidentally used the Crystallic and
regained their human form, yet still they remained the prisoners of Master Rift.
One day later, however, they were taken captive by the Paine Gang and became
the 'property' of said gang. They were returned to Walants -with the intention of
auctioning them as slaves- when, unexpectedly, Master Rift returned and rescued
them with the aid of the fighting dwarf Tarin. Astra was being blackmailed by the
lawyer who knew that knowledge of her pregnancy would be detrimental to
Astra's honor and bearing back in Aqualaria. Because of this she obeyed him in
his quest to get the Minestus' treasure horde. Along the way, however, the
barrister thought it wise to conceal her identity so as not to attract undue
attention. He chose to do this by using the crystallic. The magic of the gem
transformed the well-tanned red-head into an ebony-skinned woman with jet
Astra went a bit mad (arguably) at being transformed into a black woman.
madness, though, gave her inspirations of freedom. She continued to aid the
lawyer and the dwarf get to the lair of Minestus yet once there the foursome were
met up with by an army of dwarves. And then an army of orcs soon followed
ready to do battle! As a warrior princess the whole scenario was one of baffling
simplicity, and though she knew the odds were against her, she found herself a
weapon and went at the orcs with a vengeance. In the ensuing battle she was
severely wounded, and because the dwarves did win, she was immediately
treated with dwarven medicines. These medicines put her into a catatonic state
and so when Lord Fred reappeared and when the dwarves told him she was
dead, he believed them and so left her body in the company of the dwarves.
But fate stepped in and she was able to escape her captors. First was through
what appears to be a vision given to her by Artemis. It basically stated that her
goddess forgave her for what happened, but to be redeemed she must seek out
the dragoness Malachi, and only then would she be able to live her new life with
her love, Fred 5a. That, and she'd been renamed Astra 5a! That, and her new life
with Fred and her children lay within what would prove to be Terra Prime!!
Second was that she was able to obtain the Crystallic from her captors, and it
aids her in several ways before it....died. Her skin and hair color were restored to
normal. Her physical condition returned to that before her skin being turned jet
black. That did wonders for her and thus she found herself whole, mind and
body. Finally, she got teleported to the very world where a dragoness Malachi
had found herself magically teleported to. Finally, the Crystallic had accelerated
the growth of Astra's three children AND magically delivered them outside to the
open world, fully grown to the size as if they'd gone the full nine months inside
She fell in love with those children at first sight and knows that her
she's alive and well. Has joined with this Malachi's group. This group has been
paid a visit by a Rule and an Agent, and given a rare offer. It was a chance for
Astra to join up with her love again and get to Terra Prime, so she became a
Soon was again joined with Fred 5a and for a while the world could go hang for all they cared as the family was reunited and getting to be reacquainted....... After a while though, duty again beckoned and they all were off to stop the Book's mad machinations.....
