|Now, one perhaps is wondering who all the people are that seemed to
have come together rather unexpectedly before this audience (i.e. the reader's
or readers' attention). Frankly, there are quiet a few out in that audience
Well, here is a list of characters and just why they are here:
Ama'lis Silverheart - Used to call herself Frederigo D'Honaire, back before the transformation from male human to female, blue haired fairy. Had been on a quest to slay the Dragon of the Southern Caverns, but was tricked by the Oracle of her world (a mysterious, powerful, mischievous mage ) and was soon transformed into her current form. Initially less then thrilled t be in a body that was something out of a storybook, the six inch lass decided to at least see if she could draw upon her innate powers and light the room. This was like throwing a match on gasoline and the fey nature of all fairy kind flooded into her....and washed away all desire to return to being a "hairy, crude man." She renamed herself Ama'lis Silverheart in celebration of her transformation, and was looking forward to her new life. The Oracle, however, had other, darker and humiliating plans for her....and only the timely intervention of King Oberon, the leader of the fairy race that Ama'lis now belong to......stopped it.
Oberon had been told by the highest officials in their religion that this newest of fairies was, despite herself, not to stay within Oberon's Court (the Seelie Court) for good reason. The most prominent being was that she would not fit in having been converted at such a late date in her life, being baptized in the name of a Being who'd name brought pain to a fairy's ears, and other reasons not yet revealed. Basically, Ama'lis just never could/would fit in (just too human) so Oberon followed the Prophetess' Decree and ordered her to join another Court entirely (which turns out to be Infinity Incorporated). Oberon magically teleported the befuddled fairy lass away, and she ended up here, to meet the one person who'd help her adjust and join her new Court.
Ia'adoire - Used to call herself Frederigo D'Honaire, back before the transformation from male human to female, raven haired elfin beauty. Had been on a quest to slay the Dragon of the Southern Caverns, but was tricked by the Oracle of her world (a mysterious, powerful, mischievous mage ) and was soon transformed into her current form. Initially, she'd still been human (albeit a woman) when she'd chosen the skimpy Amazon costume before meeting the transformed Astra Thessamer. The Oracle then whisked them both away and plopped them down in front of an elfin audience to watch from afar as the new elves (for that is what they were now) floundered since they knew no lines of the play. Unanticipated, however, was the fact that she and Astra, upon looking at each other in desperation....would have their fey hearts cause them to fall permanently in love (and also speed up their mental transformation from their old sex and race to their new ones). Fred renamed herself Ia'adoire to reflect this new "self" and celebrated within her heart the idea of forevermore being a partner to her new found love.
Now, unknown to both Ia'adoire and her new elfin love was the fact that they weren't like other elves of her world in as far as that she and her love were Light Elves (something like a Germanic equivalent of the Seelie Court on several other worlds). They would find there were several differences between themselves and the rest of their new race....but the bottom line was......they were now immortal.
Also, because of these differences, there wold be a change here in affairs real soon.....
Lueoth - Used to be a red haired Amazonian warrior princess of Aqaularia. Had also been on a quest to slay the Dragon (the Dragon of the Northern Caverns by Aqualarian maps), when captured hours earlier and transformed into a tall, handsome red haired man. Soon met Fred and was in the process of getting to know her when she and he were transformed into Light Elves and plunked down in front of an elfin audience.
His eyes met hers, and he fell in love with her and what he'd become, instantly and permanently. Took up the name Lueoth to celebrate the change.
Now, unknown to both Lueoth and his new elfin love was the fact that they weren't like other elves of her world in as far as that he and his love were Light Elves (something like a Germanic equivalent of the Seelie Court on several other worlds). They would find there were several differences between themselves and the rest of their new race....but the bottom line was......they were now immortal.
Dragon Synizn - This is a version of the dragon mage with the same name who hales from a world called Earth Prime (a very close version of Terra Prime). Dragon Synizn had been described thusly:
He's an ex-lycanthropic dragon who used to change into a werebear every time the moon was full. He's been pissed off ever since. On his off-time he swears like a sailor, drinks like a fish and wonders why God created in the first place.
That had pretty much been true (except he'd wondered why Tiamat, the goddess of dragons, and not God had ever created humans in the first place) up until recently.
See, his dislike of human beings stems from the fact that he had discovered, despite his best efforts to hold the mental transformation away, how "human" in thought and mind he'd become. Despite being able, through his meditations, being able to hold back the murderous impulses that his lycanthropy had, he'd changed. Despite being able to hold back the final degradation of his Matrix into that of a human being to the point of no return, he'd changed.
That frightened him, and he reacted violently against such a truth by attempting to become so much the dracnic ideal he.....really became a real pain in the ass.
Also, in as far as drinking like a fish....that only happened that one night of the "Name Game." When he awoke the next morning (after swearing to Probe upon seeing a Vision of what a jerk he'd been....amongst the visions of the future), he had a four alarm headache.
Before, while living a life as a monk, he'd longed to be able to let lose and do a little sinning. He'd been indulging in drink afterwards when cured of his curse, but this dreaded hangover....will....mean...he....will.....never.......DRINK.. ....AGAIN!!
He also had sworn, on his Hoard, to change for the better....and thus he'd begun the process. He wasn't the same when he awoke the next morning......
That aside, his glimpse into the future warned of the danger that Zular (who was still within an ebony griffin) would be. Ways were thought of how to free Trilling Blackfeather from Zular, but nothing could be found.
Until Dragon Synizn fell upon a desperate plan.....
Oh, simply put Dragon Synizn sacrificed his entire (that which he didn't give Earth Prime's Probe) Hoard through an arcane ritual that only he and the now departed Sato knew in exchange for the Angels/Agents/Rules for saving Trilling. Since the Hoard of a Dragon IS their lifeforce, he basically was sacrificing his life. He didn't tell the others that, for he knew what kind of response THAT would get.
On a side note, one last thing I about what Dragon Synzin of Earth Prime did. When he made that sacrifice, putting his life at risk....there had been a small chance that....according to the notes of Sato....that the Rules and Agents would take pity on him and remake him into a Servant (i.e. a Champion). With that in mind, Synizn was hoping....and received that one small chance.
Thus, after being told basically he'd be sent to elsewhere to aid in
an important quest....headed by a flame haired woman called Astra Thessamer
of Terra Prime, the dragon mage suddenly found himself here.
