Our setting is the peaceful land of Aina, a wonderous
and prospering country with beautiful people.
All had lived in happiness and sunlight for as long as
anyone could remember or learn in history from far, far
back in the ages.
There had been only an echo of a rumour of a legend of
an evil deity, and black, desperatesouls living in a
barren place of existence to far away to matter.
Then suddenly one day, the Divinities sent down a
warning to the Oracles.
The three readers stood before their King, King Taetius
Ainaen, aghast and ashen with the news of visions of
violent and desolate scenes forthcoming in their lands.
But the mighty King just laughed at their worries,
reminded them they had never known anything but peace
The Silver Maiden, Oria Allyahan, fairest in all of
time and being was loved and adored by many, but namely
in secret by Torek Ainaen, Prince and future King of
But Talon, brother of Torek, also pined for her
affections unbeknownst to anyone in the land.
On the very day that Torek was making arrangments and
gathering up the corage to proclaim the fair Oria as
his choice for future Queen, Talon happily announces
that he Oria are deeply in love and are to wed ere the
Torek goes to Oria, begging to know if it's true. She
says that it is indeed, whereupon he professes his
love, asking her to be his bride.
She refuses, saying she loves Talon, not he, powerful
though his position may be.
Furious and heartbroken, Torek storms out of the Castle
of Ainaen, never again to be seen.
Filled with ever-blackening rage, Torek sets out and
travels far beyond the known realms.
He finally comes to rest in a forsaken land where a
hideous breed of creature dwell: the Krakhôn.
They immediately name him their Lord, as they believed
in and worshipped the evil god Sorvahr, and believed
him to look as Torek did upon his arrival; mean and
bloated with the menacing power of hatred burning in
There they bore him gifts and build him a towering
fortress of cold metal that sucked away warmth or
beauty out of its surroundings.
This new home he chose to nurse the great hatred

As time goes by, his hatred mounts, along with his
desire for revenge.
And as his harted grows, his body swells to accommodate
it and he becomes a great and evil beast of profound
strength and terrifying menace, becoming unrecognizable
to any who once knew and loved him as Torek, Prince of
He becoms Sorvahr, god of blackness and destruction.
He nurtures the grotesque and horrific Krakhôn, making
of them a loyal army of deadly force.
The day comes many years from when he dissapeared from
Aina when he marches his armies there, destroying much
and killing many, brutalizing and defiling his once
beloved land and people.
But his eye is on the Castle Ainaen, where his brother
Talon now rules as King - and Oria.
He storms the Castle, defeating Talon to a bloody heap
on the floor and drags Oria out screaming, leaving
their new-born daughter, Oriana, with her beloved and
now lifeless King, Sorvahr leaves Aina, having his
prize in his arms, and marches victoriously back to
His army stays awhile longer to further torture and
bring terror to those of the blessed land, but
eventually withdraws back to the stench of Naschtok.
Talon is tended to by the great healers and makes a
full recovery, though his heart remains crushed and
torn by his loss.
He bids his kinsmen to take Oriana away into the
foothills of the Mighty Mountains of Lucienne, as she
is their last hope.
She's given the name of Nalí to disquise her true
identity as the Princess of Aina, and proves over the
years to possess an incredible power and beauty even
beyond her mother's, the likes of which no one has ever
Oria was taken back to Naschtom where she was raped by
Toek again and again, and eventually bears him a son,
given the name Syrius.
He is raised to love destruction and war and hate the
land and people of Aina, especially King Talon and the
House of Ainaen.
Oria is kept prisoner, barely able to keep her wits
about her high above in the fortess of Naschtok. She is
allowed out only to eat and to tutor Syrius, whom she
loves despite the evil teachings of his father.
She dreams of and longs for her land, her people, and
her sweet Talon, mourning her loss of all of them.
And on occasion, she is visited by Sorvahr, who
whispers his cold desires in her ear and chills her to
One day, Syrius is riding across the plains with a band
of his soldiers when he comes to a lake at the
foothills of Lucienne.
There he sees a beautiful maiden bathing in the waters
and bids her to come talk with him.
The find much to say to one another, and make plans to
meet the following day by the water.
As their meetings continue, they grow fond of each
other, each oblivious to the other's identity.
Syrius finds a strange warmth growing in his chest
where he only knows cold hardness, and the beautiful
maiden feels confused by her feelings for this dark and
Over time their meetings become more intense and the
feel more and more of a connection between each other
that neither fully comprehends, as though they were
like souls destined for a like purpose.
Finally, Syrius arrives late one evening, explaining
that he's needed to make preperations for something
monumental that is going to happen which will make him
a powerful man indeed.
A powerful man who needs a Queen to rule at his side.
The maiden falls into his arms and they make love, and
ever-darkening sky brooding above the, and the tides of
fate flowing their way.
In the midst of this budding love, Sorvahr is planning
another attack on Aina, as the Ainae are growing in
strength and preperation for war against Naschtok.
Messengers of the House of Ainaen are sent to the
foothills of Lucienne, where it is announced that Nalí
is needed to aid her father and people of Aina's last
efforts for freedom to overcome the evil Sorvahr. Days
before the armies of Naschtok are to march over the
plains of Aina, Syrius goes to seek comfort in his love
onle last time before they shall rule together.
He fines, however, that she is not there and can find
He is torn between the evil preparations of his father
and sweetness and light he has known with his lovely
maiden by the water.
His mind is preoccupied and cunfused as he speeds back
to his dark homeland to lead his father's forces to war
on the land of the hated Aina, this time to rule
completely and indefinitely occupy the land.
Its people are ready for them, however, and led with a
new hope in their hearts by the return and wonder of
their Pricess Oriana, whose powers have grown to
As the armies of the House of Ainaen come to the
borders of their land, headed by King Talon and the
Princess Oriana, they meet oncoming Syrius and the
demons of Naschtok.
A confused Syrius sees his precious Nalí at the front
of the defence of Aina and hals his company, holding up
his hand in a token of parley.
He suggests a meeting of leading commaders to perhaps
come to a truce and seek some answers for his reeling

his hand down out of the sky, crushing and killing his
His face appears in the swirling dark clouds, screaming
to Oriana how dare she turn his own son away from
him...and lover her own brother!
Crouching down on the battlefield, cradling her dead
love in her arms, who, she now realizes, was of her own
blood, a sadness and wrath seals over her as she's
never known before.
A white light pours froth from her as she rises into
the sky, singing a song of lament for all the people
manipulated and attacked by the menace of Sorvahr.
The purity of her own love and pity reached out across
the distances to Naschtok, following the line of hate
and dispair and destroying Sorvahr and all his evil.
The Krakhôn flee, abandoning their weapons, retreating
back from whence they came.
The company of Aina march on to Naschtom to destroy
what's left of the fortress and behold their victory.
And lo! There emerges from the rubble the fair Silver
Maiden Oria Allyahan Ainaen.
The family of the House of Ainaen is reunited and peace
The people of Aina emerger better, stronger, and more
beautiful and full of love then ever before.
Oriana is forever haunted by the revelation of
prosperity, becoming the greatest Queen in all time.
