    Cuddled up on the loveseat in my room gazing out over the snowy lands with the sea gently waving and the skys darkening for the day, glancing to the plush cozy bed I just couldn't think of sleep just yet....there sitting on the vanity next to the bed lay the book Governor Rain had given me days before......when accepting the gift and looking inside all I had seen were empty pages. Puzzled and looking at her as if she had pranked me with a trick gift ...she had spoken the words to me...." It is called a Diary,,, all those blank pages are for you to write your thoughts and activities in..." ,,,,*smiling at me* ....As I looked at this beautifully bound book m I couldn't imagine why she had felt I would need this....I sure did not want to write a book but maybe it was a way to let out all the bottled up feelings I had been tucking away.....it had been tossed upon my vanity and had just sat there ....reaching for the book and pen perhaps this is where I will begin.....

    Opening the book , knowing so much had taken place the last weeks, my strengths in magics were increasing and power was beginning to appear to me. Glancing to the blank page the pen seemed to know exactly what was to be done


    October 13
    Weeks have past and all the cities of this new Kingdom have been invaded and citizens were in need of protection and help.....Jaden had asked for my help...and as much as I respected her I had granted her wishes. Yet in doing so I am not sure she has realized the powers had been growing inside me....My magic abilities had grown and my confusion of this land has grown with them. I had come to like some of the people here , especially the outcasts and loners..during the invasions of the Titans in the cities , their Mighty King had gone missing....my thoughts on the matter were confused could he have gotten injured trying to fight the Titans or had he just left his people and hid.....my respect for him was starting to dwindle. Now as I follow the crowds to a Dungeon in a land of many mysteries, I find creatures of yellow hue that have the strength of none I have ever fought before....and my dislike of the Undead seem to be within the walls here also as like the dungeon on the island of my snowy home, Dungeon Deceit. What causes this undead syndrome , and what terrifying appearances of these things....* pausing as I am writing, ,,,in thought* and then theres the matter of the Cove people near Governor Rains home....I must get her out of there and somehow convince her that it is wrong to punish creatures who are only trying to live in a place they first had. I must find a way to show her ....how horrible it is to be pushed into a land then later having even that to get ripped from you......Maybe some time taking her to the lands I grew up and showing her how my people had been forced to the lands near the Volcano and tell her my lands stories

    December

    (Smiling as I neatly begin my tasks of restoring life into DragonStone...sitting down at the tables in the great hall for a break) *picking up the pen I begin to write my thoughts*

    Time has been good to me and the time I have spent with Jaden I have learned many things and have gained much trust with her and the people she loves. My one Governor meeting I visited the room was chaotic and the King allowed it, However maybe he wasn't as bad as I had assumed , he did escort one out. Yet all the things happening in this kingdom the last many months and for some reasons I just feel the King has hidden secrets, just what is up with this man, is he evil does or is he good. Time will reveal and I shall begin this game of Power !

    Jaden tucked away and the trading company closed up.....and Charlie on my side things will be changing .....(as a devilish smile comes across my face)

    December 14 , 3 am

    *Tossing and Turning just can not sleep*

    This Island seems to be taking a part of me and twisting its will to change me.....what is happening to me. The Undead I settled in this region to destroy are now lurking around me and seem to be part of my life, my soul seems to be changing or my desires are changing , I am uncertain but life is different now. Perhaps opening the Fortress and having a party for the Holidays would bring more human interaction and help clear my mind. I will begin decorating and maybe this will settle this urge to just go kill something...

    December 19

    "again restless and unable to sleep*

    The next few days seem to be more cheerful and distracting as I busy myself hanging the last of the holiday decorations , as I stand back and look how festive the place looks, the thought comes to me * what if they ask about Jaden, what am I going to tell them? * as I ponder the thought all I can come up with is just avoid the conversations and side track them with a tour of the place....yes that should work ....

    What a great time to plan a party and tonight I accept the governor seat, and here to I hope they do not ask about Jaden *shrugs -oh well play dumb* .....Going to my wardrobe tossing out everything ..." what should I wear?"

    Early Morning December 26th

    Awaken in a state of Panic and in a cold sweat, my dreams haunting me, the evil necromancer Neira haunts my dreams ....and yet today I must compose myself and look presentable the dark circles under my eyes from lack of sleep must be covered and I must stay awake and make sure things are ready for the party tonight.....*yawning*..... " I must stay awake......."

    From one dark night to the next they all seem to interlock into one to me.....I seem to grow paler from no sunshine. The party at Black Rain Castle seemed to have went well....and I seem to be accepted by many. So perhaps I should start preparing for a benefit for the repair of Skara Brae's Island and the buildings in the city , damage caused from those evil Titans . This will keep me busy and awake during these dark nights , being awake means no nightmares ....no nightmares means no cold sweats from the haunting of that evil necromancer Neira. She seems to only haunt my dreams during darkness, so I shall do my plannings for this event the next few weeks and my work at the office in Skara at night !

    Midnight Jan. 16

    One thing I can say is much can get done during the night night hours , nobody to distract me ! So my first Governor meeting now under my belt and the King seems to give the go ahead to all I asked ( even though he did suggest to find alternate paths for a few ideas) Perhaps his suggestion on reaching out to the Rangers was a good idea, since my notices I posted last week I have already been looked in upon by one Ranger, he seems to be a impressive & proficient Man perhaps this will be Skaras new protector and First Ranger. With Jaden tucked away I do need someone to look to for advise and perhaps this is my destiny, my fate ...then again I am still afraid to fall asleep during the dark ........perhaps I can win favor with more citizens If I have a lighthouse contructed close to the docks of Skara or a beacon for Merchant ships, after-all since The Handsome guys missing ship and the murders I feel we need one , I have ran around this island all night and I think I have found the perfect spot !

    Leaving Que's Tavern, yawning and knowing I stayed much to long and had to many drinks.....it was dark now and I had intended to make a short evening tonight but I had so enjoyed the company and the drinks had tasted , oh so good. Falling asleep was not an option however, I had to make it to Black Rain Castle and busy myself so as not to fall asleep....I wanted not to awaken screaming in terror from that evil necromancer Neira haunting my dreams, every dream during the darkness seemed to always be of her coming for me, and just as she would be hovering over me on that undead steed, I would awaken, in a cold sweat screaming.....Perhaps I shall instead go to my Office in Skara and finish some paperwork that was long over due.

    Chills running down my spine as I open the squeeking door to the Office * thinking, I must call upon someone to fix this door * .....a slight chill ran down my back entering the darken room. Lighting the Candle on my desk revealed a stranger sitting across from my desk .....* just about jumping out of my skin I gasp * ......." Oh my you startled me, are you here to kill me?"........as the stranger chuckles she softly says " no Dear Girl I am not here to kill you. However I have heard news of your night time activities here in the city and how you are never to be found during the day....so much like myself , yet not" "as she takes her cloak off and places it upon the back of the chair she had been awaiting in, she turns looking into my eyes and asks " I know that you live on the artic Island and have been slaying the undead within Deceit have you taken anything from her? " ........Blinking, I sat dumb-founded that she would ask me this, almost as if she knew I had. Finally the words just spill out of my mouth " welllll......why do you ask?".....for some odd reason, even the fact this Lady was sitting in my dark office waiting for me to show up , I had no fear of her, her very pale skin was not like most people of this Kingdom and Her Jet Black Hair was very well kept and she had an elegance about her yet something was yet odd about her.....as I could tell she was not pleased with my answer and seemed as if she was annoyed with my hesitation to fully answer her question....she begins to say " I am not here to hurt you nor am I here of any ill Intent, I merely came because I had the feeling you have the weapon Neira is looking for ! " , at this point introductions needed to be made and I begin " My name is Daenyra , and you are asking questions yet I do not even know who you are" , as she smiles at me ,the pale lady then in a very soft voice almost a whisper says " My name is Aleera" something inside me seems to trust her , as I reach to the floor where my backpack sits I lift it to my desk and begin to untie the pouch and open it revealing a Frosty Weapon, taking the Mace out of the pack and laying it beside it on the desk, " You mean this?" The confident look now on her face she nods and replays "yes that is what Neira Haunts you for. Until you return it she will huant you until you go mad", as she smooths the the oddly colored red dress across her lap and folds her hands placing them on my desk and leaning in to say " with this task I can help you "

    Jan. 21 ( Late evening after many activities for the day )

    * deep sigh and a smile upon my face* --*I pick up the pen laying on my vanity and plop myself into the lush cozy loveseat in my room and reach to my dairy stashed in the hat box on the floor*

    So much this evening I am over whelmed at this feeling inside so many things are happening around me, I think the King liked the idea of a Sadie Hawkins Auction, a New Governor for Magincia and she seems nice, a grand evening at the castle, a handsome new fella who has told me all kinds of tales of a kingdom and about a family whose bears the same last name as Miss Jaden's, she has never spoke much of her past and I wonder if by any chance there is some long lost connection with her and the man of those tales. Perhaps I should go check on her and bring her rune book back to her *giggles* maybe she would have interest in this new guy I have met. Yet my thoughts are fading on these things and what is on my mind most now is The stranger I met in my office and the things she said to me...*yawning I seem to drift off to sleep* (in the dark)

    Jan. 22 (Very early Morning)

    Here I am facing this Queen of the Undead once again, and where is Drogon, this can not be real. As that face leans in towards me telling me over and over " I know who your father is, and your Mother was my puppet, you are the daughter of a Ranger a very handsome Ranger and Your Mother has done my bidding for years but you have broken the hold I had upon her and now where is she?? And why are you in this world I cast you beyond here a place not accessible to anyone until recent years, why have you come to this world? Your parents were not allowed to stay together and your father walks the world , perhaps has died from sadness. That mace, of one of my warriors, bonds your Mother to me and you have taken it.....I want them back both the mace and your Mother.........or I shall have you......" *Gasping and a shrill scream I sit straight up from the seat, sweat drenching me* .....Oh I had tried so hard not to fall asleep after the night with my guests. Why is this undead lady haunting my dreams and why did she say that to me within them. Could any of this be true....these dreams are draining me and I feel so sick , perhaps my karma from stranding Jaden on that island with no food, I can not believe that these dreams are any part of me feeling ill, but I do need to find the stranger, Aleera and perhaps ask for her help now, I want these nightmares to stop. Today I will send Charlie to fetch Aleera she said she would be at the Inn in Skara and have him bring her to me.....*racing to the window to barf*


    (later that evening)

    Knowing how wonderful a friend Charlie has been to us all I thank the God that he is a part of this band of friends, we are a family, perhaps not of true blood linked but we are a family! I feel horrible what I have done to Jaden and right now I just want her back, she always advised me comforted my thoughts and I have betrayed her and left her in the middle of no where, she was the head of our family and I need her now. However first I need to get this dam mace back to Neira but who is this Mother she wants so bad. I have no idea where to find her or who she is and why did she just leave me as an infant?
    Hearing doors open and close I hope this will be Charlie but will he have Aleera, he is very good at accomplishing what he sets out to do, so I hope so.Walking to the stairs I just wobble looking down and chose to await here in my private chambers close to the Fireplaces and warmth of this upper part of the castle. I notice not just the sound of Charlie's clomping of heavy footsteps but another set of footsteps a faint tap of steps coming upstairs with him. Oh I so hope it is her.

    Entering the room Charlie smiles and asks how I am feeling now and if the gross messes have subsided....*nodding* "yes Charlie I have stopped barfing now but I still feell sick" a slight smile on his face yet still concern I see in his wrinkled brow. I look beyond his towering size and I can see a hooded cloaked body behind him following him into my Chambers.....as she lowers the hood I see it is exactly whom I had hoped for...." Aleera, I am glad you could come" ...." I was hoping your offer to help me still stood"......smiling at me and in her soft spoken voice " Of coarse Dear Child I would come, not just to help with this Issue of the Wicked Witch of Dagur Island, the Queen of the Undead Neira but too, I heard you were not feeling well. Is there anything I could do ?" ....wondering what Charlie had said to her that she seemed so concerned, a slight warm feeling inside that someone actually cared besides Charlie was a very securing feeling. One I have not felt often in my life. " No I think I am getting better, nothing a lil hot chicken soup can not fix and a bit more sleep" as I go on I begin to tell her of my latest Nightmare and the words that Neira had spoken, " I know who your father is, and your Mother was my puppet" I continue to tell of the many things Neira claimed to be while in my dream .....as I am talking and telling Aleera I watch as concern appears on her face, and an even more odd look seems to appear one I see on Charlie's face when he asks when we will retrieve Jaden, the look of guilt. Why would this stranger be so concerned, so helpful? What is in this for her, yet right now I did not care I just wanted these dreams to stop and I wanted to not be sick any more.

    " Do not worry, Daenyra I will take care of this. ,However I could need help to get to her, So if you could ask for a few willing brave people to assist we will go return the mace and stop this" ........" butttt...bu..." as I stammer....." What about her asking for my Mother to be returned and that if not she will take me?". Aleera pauses with a deep sigh, " I am your Mother, and I will stop this, please trust me"
    *eyes widening to the point of almost popping out of my head*....." My wha...." as the Vomit rolls up my throat spewing all over the floor. Aleera slightly closes her eyes and turns her head for a moment, then turning back to me nodding " yes and before you ask, I had no choice she took you from me and held me a prisoner to do her biddings and far as your Father he knew not anything about you, I had planned on supprising him with the news of you but that day was ruined when we wandered into that dungeon. Now let's clean up this mess..."

    (Unaware what day it is)

    Days had passed and finally I awaken and the weakness and sick feelings seemed to left me now. *blinking my eyes* Waking up in my bed, I notice huddled on the chair in the corner the black haired woman who had been a stranger, yet now it has been revealed is my Mother, there she seems to have fallen asleep. I wonder how long she has been there.? Looking at her my mind wanders to thoughts i have not yet faced about this Dark haired beautiful Lady, all... the years i spent alone and living in a world of savages and beasts so wicked the mere thought of them leaves goose bumps on my arm. Stretching my arms and yawning I decide to quietly move to the fire to warm myself before my descent to the kitchen on the lower floors to find coffee and perhaps some food. As I tip toe past the chair she stirs and quietly says " So you must be feeling better" Grinning I Nod yes and make my way on into the room next door to stand by the double fireplaces. Extending my hands to warm them , Aleera comes into the room and sits nearby on a loveseat. I begin " How long have you been watching me sleep?" . As she smiles at me I seemed to know the answer to that question, " I have been here almost the entire time waiting for you to wake up, I did leave to find help to fight Neira, I found a Brave and Helpful little Gypsy Girl in Trinsic, a Beast Master and a Ranger to help assist in the battle with Neira, and Imade it clear, I will destroy her if she harms you in any way. Let us hope that is the last we see of the Undead Queen"


    " I have had many conversations with the former Governor Jaden Rain, I know the bond between the two of you and I will not cause any problems with that. She has spoke to me of sending you on a quest. One to show you how women sometimes struggle in life to reach a position of power, as the position you now have as Governor. Once you aquire the book it will tell you the struggles the Gargoyle Queen had before her rise to power and how she was first humble. I agree with her and she has made arrangements for you and a drow named Dagda, that I believe is a friend of yours,to take a journey into the lands of Ter Mur to obtain a book. The book is the story of the Gargoyle Queen Zhah. When you are well enough to make the journey there will be help to aide in the retrieving of the books." Cocking my head to the side wondering how just all of a sudden I have a Mother, almost two, one by blood and one just a very close bond and here they are planning what I will do,.. Hmm. Gargoyles have interested me since my first day here and the first one I had seen was in Trinsic, the day I had the all the creatures of the lands following me. So this could turn into an interesting quest, " I look forward to that."

    As my day begins, I find myself alone much lately. Avoiding the two women who some days seem to be at each others throats. All over me, I did not ask for this much attention. I long lost those hurt feelings that I had been left alone as an infant and was raised by savages struggling just for life in that land. Yet these women fighting over my love forget that fact. They forget how strong I truly am. To please one I go along with her ideas to help me, to please the other I over look the fact she was not there my entire childhood. I know she had been kept hostage all those years and forced into a life with the Undead but that still does not change the fact I grew up and I grew up tough and I grew up strong. So I will spend my day away from Black Rain Castle and I will go explore this land Jaden wants to send me to on a quest. So much tension between the two of them it is easy to slip past making sure my direction leads me through the kitchen before I make my way out of this place to some peace in the woods of a new land.

    Standing looking into what appears as a giant Moon, I think of my first memories walking through the moongate. The first people I came in contact with were somewhat apprehensive of me. Yet several were kind and welcoming, Dagda was pretty much my first friend in this world, and I became rather fond of the small Gypsy Girl who the bears seemed to like, anyone that is so loved by creatures has to be a good soul and the Gargoyle, a giant of a guy, he made me smile. Then there was John the one everyone seems to stress over, in the beginning I looked at him as a snarly gruff older guy, now however I just see him as a leader. As with most people who lead they often are not always liked or seem to be mean or bossy, I just see him with respect now. Even tho his first name for me was savage, and still is. I have come to like the name, it seems to be a part of who I am. So here I stand again as I work up the feelings and have courage to try this, Ter Mur.

    Oh My, Gargoyles surround the gate here and these lovely pillars look so elegant. Turning full circle I see the mountain of bright white steps that lead into the Gargoyle city. That adventure will come later , right now I just want to go explore the lands. Heading south through the woods seems the biggest annoyance here is those small lil snakes that bite at ones ankles, rolling my hands and pointing at it with a Vas Flam and the ankle biter lay dead. Smiling I wonder if the two Matriarchs quarreling at the castle would like some new meat for dinner. Picking up the dead snake I wrap it in cloth and tuck it inside my backpack, this I could find amusing later.

    Standing now at a road with three directions to chose. I shall move forward, onward I walk. I can hear the trickle of water and ahead is a beautiful bridge but first I must kick off these boots and wade in this stream. Following a path leading towards the water. Its so lovely here mountains and water and many many trees. Sitting with my feet in the water I know when weather warms that this will be a favorite place to visit. How I wish it was warm enough for a swim but soon spring will come. The chill of the water I remove my feet reaching into my pack noticing the only cloth I had brought was that which now holds a dead snake. Yuk. Well perhaps walking barefoot a few minutes while the newly sprouting grasses dry my feet. Just yards from the stream I sit in an open field I can see the water not far from me and a mountain to my left. This is a lovely land.

    Feet now dry and boots back on its time to wander across the bridge to see what else this land holds. all is too quiet and the road seems to narrow and spilt up. My instincts from my childhood seem to be kicking in and I feel as though I am being stalked and followed. No pet with me so I am on my own with magic as my only defense. As I peer through the shrubbery two eyes are now looking back at me, of what appears in looks but smaller in size then the T-Rex of Eodan. The Raptor had been following me for I am not sure how long, and here it appeared like my shadow staring right at me. All I learned in magic school would this be enough to defeat this creature or do I run. For now, I will run. Running back to the bridge I stand on the bridge casting energy Fields to trap the creature on that side of the bridge and the lil buger has friends now. Three of them clawing at the energy field. so with no pets with me the best that comes to mind is an energy vortex. casting a couple through the fields to the other side I begin to Flame Strike them. As they lay dead at the steps of the bridge, I tap my backpack and think. If you were only large enough to stick one those into , to take home for dinner. : smiling: I think of the faces on the Matriarchs with that roasted and served on the table.

    Now this land feels like home !

    Waking up this morning I felt like a child again and that it was my birthday, so excited to run grab my best friend and go play with my new toys. This new land, new world made me feel alive again. Not stifled and trapped with a hum drum routine I felt I had even more purpose now. As New Governor of Skara Brae I want to be a part of this land also, maybe try to bond this lands to the one I am part of in Britainia. I will ask the King my next meeting if Skara Brae can open an office for ambassadors perhaps one from my first home lands, Eodan and one from Ter Mur. The Ranger I first spoke with for the position of head Ranger, Okami had a wonderful idea about an ambassador for Eodan but now I want Ter Mur also included. An Embassy in Skara, what a wonderful idea. I think that Ranger would be the perfect candidate for the position, a man of knowledge yet a man to defend our city.

    Getting out of the Castle before anyone wakes I make my way to Dagda's. Pounding on the door she has no choice but to wake but, cause she knows I will be bearing on the window next. As the door squeeks open and the drow peeks from a slightly opened door she sleepily and annoyingly mutters the words "what now Daeny? I was sleeping so good". Grabbing her by the wrist and tugging her out the door " Come I have something so wonderful to show you..." as I look back there she stands half dressed and barefoot. "Oh, well go get ready you are going to LOVE this" The excitement on my face must have been enough to convince her that today would be an Adventure she would never forget.

    Standing at the Moongate with Dagda I knew she had doubts and was apprehensive of this adventure, " just close your eyes and hold my hand cause when we get there you are going to love this". Shaking her head as if in doubt, reluctantly she abides my words and closes her eyes. As I pull her through the moongate my heart races with excitement , standing next to the gate to Ter Mur, "Open your eyes now" as her eyes open they widen with amazement. "wow this is beautiful just like you said Daeny"

    Following me to my favorite glade, we stand there looking at each other. Both nodding, no words needed to be said, this was like Home. " We can convince Jaden to leave DragonStone Castle, she could help support building a home and she will love the peacefulness here. As for .........." *as the words seem to be a bad taste from the mouth* "..... and well Mother can stay at Black Rain Castle, after all she seems to have vengeance against Neira we will let her stay where perhaps she is needed". Knowing something had to happen to separate the two of them this seemed the best option, Jaden would be away from the problems of the orcs and Cove, Aleera would be on the Island she had spent most of her life, a Dark past as dark s her hair and living at Black Rain Castle seemed to be the perfect place for her. As for me I could bounce From the Inn in Skara to both places the Matriarchs would be and they would be separated. No more bickering ! Life would again be peaceful......

    Meeting with the officals of Yew went quite well and Trades will begin with the City and Skara, I am looking forward to the Concoctions James brought samples of and the lumber is much needed for the settlement in Ter Mur for our Ambassadors, what really delights me is tapping into those wine kegs at the Winery, With the new business Dagda will be opening soon this will be a fine touch to the Pub, not to mention I would like some stashed back into my private stock. However the smells of the Concoctions have my mind a blur, I keep thinking of the Island south of Skara , Dragon Island and sitting around a boiling pot of a intoxicating smell. I did drop off those markers for the ship race yet I can not remember where I left them, the only words that come to mind are .......... under / near / center / falls ......the words are scrambled but I do not quite understand what the meaning is. Perhaps I should go make sure they are where they are suppose to be

    March 5 ( early morning hours )

    Awake with very few hours of sleep, to excited about the finishing last eve of the Kings builders and the Lighthouse that now stands on Skara Brae. I must have sat on those benches staring at it for hours after it was completed, as if I had never seen such a thing before. A beckon of Hope, for no returning of the Titans and Security, no ships will crash into those boulders uprooted from beneath the sea exposing shape jagged edges that would sink a ship crashing into them in the dark just off the shore of the top of the island. I owe Jaden for this and I must be sure to tell her how grateful I am for her support of me. Perhaps I will dress and take a stroll through Skara, staying in the Inn is a regular habit of mine.

    Opening the door of the Inn the skys seem brighter the streets more lit, smiling thinking of the extra light on the island now I can hear my dragons as they fly low over the Inn, They know I am awake and I am sure the extra light confuses them from sleep or just knowing my excitement has them circling the skys above Skara. Since the incident with Neira I cant seem to stable them at night, they are my protectors. After the Governor of Jheloms statement of Dragon hunts I need to be more cautious of them. Yet in the sky something smaller then a draon approaches, I know that its not the Consulate or it would be my snowy White Owl friend , this is dark as it nears a black raven and a note. A note from Jaden's , Sisters as I begin to read


    Dear Dae,

    We write as Jaden has instructed, Father is ok but his sadness worries Jaden. She is taking him to the Isle he and our Mother held so dear in the Tokuno Islands. We shall be gone a few weeks to join her and him. She has asked a Favor of you, and that is. Could you prepare a dinner party and what appears as a small festival in Zento for his return to the mainland. We should return towards the end of the Month perhaps even the first of next month I will send a more exact time after I speak to Jaden. We set out tonight to meet her there by morning. My Daughter AnnaBeth will help you with whatever you need.

    Thank You,

    Desta,

    &
    Aubrey & Sophia



    So now I must support her wishes and a Fine feast we shall have

    Arriving before the fighters of Jhelom to the hunt posted all over the Kingdom My fear had been they were going to kill My Adopted Kin the dragons. As I left the Moongate the land was beautiful like the lands where the City Zento lays but as I had gotten closer to the site they were to meet to hunt down a dragon the trees were charred and black as if burnt the land was odd. From a distance I could hear someone approach on horseback, turning around prepared to defend my Dragon I could see the figure approach shouting " M'Lady" the voice was now ever so clear and I knew that voice, my side kick Roberto always there to watch over me. I should have known he would not let me face this challenge alone. The aura of the woods seemed to deepen and my senses were telling me we were being watched but not from people of Jhelom , I saw one creeping through the trees towards us and turning I could see we were surrounded by Death Beetles, Drogon without waiting for any command launched on the closest and began to eat the foul creature. Standing behind my protectors I signal to meet up a lil past the infestation of them. Running towards clear opening from the trees I find myself out of the foul burnt trees and lands , Roberto and Drogon at my side. No Dragon of my kin could live here in such a foul place , not even Drogon was comfortable in this land. The sound of what seemed to be a Roar of a lion behind me and a Rider fast on its trail as the Beast launched towards me even before Drogon could intercept the creature the swoosh of his weapon across the beasts back it turned from attacking me to defend itself. The fighter was much to quick and the beast lay slain at my feet as I ask who he was all I heard as he rode off was " I fight for Jhelom" . Standing in astonishment I felt the nudge of Drogon pushing my back with his snout towards the burnt woods as if to say " lets go help" a slight snort from Drogon and as I look Roberto is already gone following the fighter. Today I will help Jhelom, aganst the instincts I have towards not trusting these people , Today I will fight for Jhelom !

    Days seem at times run into each other all seeming to be the same, the Governor meeting yesterday was very long, as much as I love Skara and Britannia since my arrival, fact of the matter I grew up in Eodan and I haven't went back often. Then there is the matter of the Village in Ter Mur we have established. DragonStone Hall which sits close to the moongate and is very busy all the time day and night refugees gather around the gates to the City and to the Moongate always hungry and sometimes cold. We have welcomed them into the Hall many times lately. It is Spring but there is still a chill in the air. One in particular seems to stay and helps with anything needing done on the buildings and at the Hall, for food and a warm bed. Bright young Gargoyle by the name Huk. The void demons have taken quite the toll on these gargoyles so many pushed to the gates of the city from their homes the Void demons have pushed them out of. With so much Chaos within Trinsic and Britannia and the fact the Head ranger of Skara now has taken such a concern to maintain peace and order I have had more time here at the Village. I find it difficult to reach out to a situation I am unclear on, when there is tragedy here surrounding the Village of my clan and the fact I haven't even checked on my Village in Eodan or the Jukari Shaman who raised me. Devlin however has taken it upon himself to check on the village and has reportedquite a disturbing news of the Volcano, The Shadowguard. He seems to think I should go see for myself and perhaps start calling part of our familes and clan in to help control the evil within Shadowguard.

    Spring was the beginning of new growth and the Dragons have become restless, perhaps Drogon searches for a mate or even maybe he has grown weary of the bitter cold of winter and the warmer weather has caused him to venture further his nights unleashed. Here within tis book grows secrets and from this moment on, this book shall be locked away within my chambers at Black Rain Castle. Now alone in the Castle I will write what troubles me and make arrangements for Aleera to find another form of a home rather then creep around here. *looking around to make sure no bodys is in the room* *I walk to the door to lock it*

    I am not sure who I can trust with this mishap *deep sighs* I fear my stays in Skara will become less I must keep Drogon here a night, this morning he brought me his prey of last night, like a cat bringing his mouse to show it off. From the looks of what was tangled around his talons and leg it appears he raided a pirate ship, sails from the ship with Skulls on it were tangled around his wings and priceless necklaces wound around his talons and brought what was left of the pirate and dropped it to show me, a bloodied human arm. From the looks of the gun powder residue on Drogon it was clear there had been a battle and cannons had been fired more then that only Drogon can tell. My fear is what will these pirates do once they discover what has happened, I can not take chances with the citizens of Skara with the dragons lose nor the poor refugees in Ter Mur. Already Huk my friend gargoyle refugee is scared to death of the dragons yet he sure loves to watch them fly. Dagar island seems the best refuge for Drogon at night at least here its so cold at night no human lingers outside long only the Undead and whats a few less Undead? I will keep him hid here until he heals and hopefully the situation passes.

    So something needs said to Okami but what exactly? I mean I do not want to tell him my Dragon ate a Pirate, yet he needs to be prepared in case of Pirates attacking Skara, they will pin this on me, after all my rantings of feeding people to dragons I will be the first they come looking for. Then again maybe they will not figure it out that it was a Dragon or that it was a tamed Dragon. What am I going to do now?

    Sitting on the balcony of the consulate, Raghara, the owl perched on the table near my chair watching as I sip the hot coffee, as if asking for a taste Raghara hoots and tilts his head. A smile of coarse brightens across my face and as he moves closer and hops onto my lap. This is the closest he andi have been, so slowly and gently I rub my fingers across the top of his head. As if knowing my worry for my Gargoyle friend , Huk. The owl seems to try to comfort me. The soft hoots as he looks at me, and then it comes to me, as worried as Huk had been about me going into Shadowguard there is that chance he went to look for Okami and the rangers. Yet first I must look within Ter Mur and perhaps the rangers will come help gather the books for the Gargoyle Queen with me in a few days. I will speak to Okami then

    Laying face into the pillow still exhausted from all those Minions of Scelestus, I tilt my head somewhat to the side and half open my eye. As if recovering from a drunken stooper I blink and roll back over to try to go back to sleep but the thought hits me. Still no sign of Huk, nothing along our way to the Isle and no signs of him there. As my worry starts in again its clear I will not be able to go back to sleep and Rolling over swinging my feet upon the floor I sit on the edge of my bed blinking the sleep from my eyes and gently rubbing my eyes. *Heavy sigh* I know something is wrong. Thw boy has very little knowledge of Britannia and the terrain is much different then Ter Mur and so are the people and creatures. Hopefully a search party will be easier to muster up then one to retrieve book remains.

    Today is my Birthday, being a child left abandon in the woods one may not consider them ever having a birthday, but this is the day my life began in Eodan 18 years ago today. It was on my birthday I came to Britannia and began my life here. So many events of my life have unfolded during my time here, like coming to Britannia was the key to unlock them all. By birth I may belong in Britannia but my heart hasn't been at ease completely since my arrival here, this is not my destiny to live my days in Britannia. However Something pushed me from Eodan to go become who I am meant to be. Here in Ter Mur a closeness to Eodan in so many ways, here is where I can feel my destiny is to be and here we are growing. We are a good people perhaps mischief runs amuck within a few but in true society there must be a balance of good and evil and we have it here. Within me I can feel both sides of the ying yang both good and bad. I do my best to center that and remain balanced, yet sometimes I lose my balance, mostly when Aleera fogs my mind with her guilt she must feel and trys to convince me she cared for me all along. Still not coming out with the whole story she trys to candy coat her attempts to tell me what happened. It is those times I have fits of anger and what Jaden calls Tantrums. *Smirks*



    June 11

    Waking up this beautiful warm day a knock at the bedroom door. Turner bringing me a note , opening the note I can see the scribblings of Gargish, I had seen so many times lately. Queen Zhah has sent a request for us to check out the lands to the north past the north bridge. *blinking sleepily* I must dress and make way to the guild Hall, hopefully some of DragonStone Guards will be up this early and ready to go out on patrol. Since Scorpion has come into our ranks I just can not help myself but yank him out to do these patrols with me. Hmm but he has been missing for days so hopefully Rumerch
    , Roberto, Hazel, Rowan or Devlin are at the Hall. Tip toeing down the stairs I do not wish to awaken Huk, he has slept well the last few nights since the bear had been slain and the potion had been made from its blood to heal him. Making way down the road, what a fine morning for a stroll. Remembering the promise of a picnic for Roberto , where should we have it? Maybe on the terrace over the river, what a great place for a picnic. Stumbling over a rock in the road from not paying attention where I was going I find myself face down in the dirt. Bouncing back up on my feet my first reaction was to look around to make sure nobody saw my ackwardness. Nope nobody in sight. Dusting the dirt from myself, and no time for a bath now I can hear chatter from the commons room at the hall just a short distance from the road. Swiftly I make my way to the Hall.

    Entering the room there they sat " Guess what we need to do?" as I smiled at them.

    July 2 (early morning)

    This morning just isn't the morning, and no friendly banter was going to make it any better, I just wasn't in the mood for it. So the Gargoyle in the mage shop waiting on me, as I am trying to just buy the ingredients I need for healing the wounds of my Dragon, was truly annoying me with his banter. Looking at the tall thing standing before me towering over my short self, all I could think was * Id like to throat punch his smart self* . Sizing him up the wheels in my head are turning and I think I can take him down. Then my logic kicks in and I know this isn't going to get me anywhere but *Man Id sure like to* The night prior had been a rough one, The void demons had gotten thick near the city and thinning it out was rough but its somewhat better this morning, annoying pests. Like cock roaches they just seem to over take the land before you realize it then it takes forever to get rid of them. If that wasn't enough, message came this morning from Dagar Island that there was a plague of undead terrorizing the people there. * tapping my foot as I still await my bag of stuff from the mage shop and this Gargoyle AND if this Gargoyle has one more dumb joke before he hands me my supplies I swear my logic is going to wear off. Drogon needs this for the wounds he got from the void demons last night so I suppose he should take this next mission off and can take Nauli, she has been restless and probably feels like I do, poor girl needs to get out and just unleash some built up aggression, what better to do that on then the Undead !

    Guests at the Guikd Hall was quite an interesting evening last night. DragonStone guards can make a mess but at least they all seem to get along.sassy mouths and escalating ego’s were quite a show. Not sure who the new female gargoyle was but she seemed to have quite the attitude with most of the humans in the room, knowing she was slightly rude and pushy it was still hard not to understand her concerns of the humans. After all we are the visitors in her lands , even though I to live here now. Then the locals bouncing in trying to start a ruckus with visitors was a slight bit humorous. However after so long I have duties and patrol so staying the entire evening was not an option for me. So I guess after I left the old drama of the moles, this is just something beyond what I understand , I wasn’t raised in Britannia and I know just a lil of their past, but their past is exactly that, their past so I can’t understand this hatred for drow. So much of Britannia I do not understand, it’s so much easier to just live among the gargoyles and the dragons like it here. I do fear the future will be more chaotic here, the more the Britannia people come what could be next.

    The Summer has past me by, little can I recall of all that has taken place. Tension at DragonStone has grown drastically Jaxx has been missing and this new Gargoyle, Demona, has the clan men in an uproar. She seems to approve of us and I have not decided yet how I feel about her but the rest of the clan seem to like her, then of coarse theres the matter of my Mother, Aleera, who is completely off the hinge at this point, and she seems to just egg on the Gargoyle to dislike the outsiders. I try to listen in on whats said at the hall but all seem to become quiet when I come in. I have over heard them speak of an attack in the Abyss by one of the outsiders. Of coarse My Mother hushed them up before i could hear much more. Where is Jaden, I could use her advise and support right now, I haven't seen her in some time, as if she is avoiding me.

    I have lost track of what day it is, I do know it's sometime toward the beginning of September, its dark here and the candle light provides barely enough light to write by, yet here I begin. My last entry I had wondered if Jaden was avoiding me, looks as if she had been. The man who produced me, clearing his conscience as being my father must have thought telling me would just automatically form some new family bond between us. The fact Jaden is my Sister isn't a horrid idea but she could have told me sooner. Aleera though, she is one who I am uncertain I can ever forgive, she knew the whole time and never told me, was to worried about making excuses for leaving me with the undead Queen and her minions. The man who still holds my respect and love is my true Father, maybe not the man who created me but the man who turned me into the person I am. I am Jukari !

    My blood may not be true to the people but my heart is ever much so, I am a Jukari. Yet I have become a Dragon Mistress my heart is with these people as well, my blood runs through my veins as a true Dragon Clan but my heart will always be with the Jukari. So where do I really belong?

    There will be a price to pay, to one of them, from the time of my birth !

    Desire for vengeance has tarnished my soul, lurking in the shadows inside Deceit I have studied the Undead , plotting how I would strike out at the Undead Queen. Lack of food and Sunshine has finally driven me outside and at this point I know its either kill something for food and start a fire or return to DragonStone and deal with what eventually I will have to deal with. More family and more truth about the secrets of my past, it would have been easy enough to just return to Eodan but there I would be found and forced into the time of finding out all of my past, this way I chose when and how I learn of my past and be able to kill the one who caused all this. Then again maybe I should be thankful for giving me the Jukari as my family. At that very moment is when I heard the screech, a sound I all to well knew. It was Raghara as he circling over the entrance to Deceit. A quick smile overcame me as my arm went up and he landed on it. " She brought you to this Island , didn"t she?" as I softly stroke the feathers of the cooing bird. " I am so happy to see you" as all the built up anger fades into nothing more and the owl seems to calm the raging inside of me. I was given a new destiny the moment I was born, with that destiny I was shown how to survive and not be pampered and spoiled. Now I am being shown what my life could have been, yet given the chance to have it all in my life. With all this knowledge and backing I can build an Army to defeat the Undead !

    Many days had past since Raghara had found me, held up within the caves near the Dungeon Entrance we had stayed as I contemplated my return to DragonStone. This particular morning Raghara took flight as I jumped " Raghara waittt....", to late the bird had gone. I had ran to the cave entrance and noticed he was headed straight back the direction of the Castle. Now I knew this was the day for my return, glancing at the camp fire and the tasty rabbit cooking I decided to finish the meal cooking then gather up and go back.

    Just as I had finished my morning breakfast of BBQ Bunny I heard the sound of the owl as he had returned. Flying into the cave he landed quite near me, squawking and flapping his wings. Something was amiss, he had never acted this way. As a pang struck me I knew something horrible was wrong. Kicking dirt over the flames I stifled the fire. Returning to DragonStone would have to wait, somethign as wrong at the Castle and it was there I headed.

    Arriving at the Castle the doors were standing open, I looked inside, hollered out a Hello, with no reply. I had seen foot prints headed to behind the castle so I turned around and followed them. There I could see the image of two women, and flowers on the snow all around them. The pang I had felt earlier just seemed to worsen as I got near. I could tell it was Jaden and the cook Turner. Both sobbing, what was going on. As I yelled to them a hello, Jaden turned and saw me. Running straight to me tears running down her face, as she got to me a very tight hug and I heard the words I had not expected to hear. As she barely spoke the words so softly, " I\m so happy to see you, I was so afraid something had happened and I am so sorry we upset you, but, She is dead, Ann died..." and the tears and her emotions flooded her and no more was able to be said. I stood there, my heart ached this Gargoyle had been so good to me, this is who had inspired me to move to Ter Mur this was who took care of everything when I was gone. I had loved her. One single tear rolled down my cheek, then I inhaled sharply, tightened my lips and couldn't speak a word. My heart felt like it would just beat out of my chest at that very moment.

    Jaden was a wreck and Raghara must have known something was wrong and came here, then returned to warn me. Right here I felt it, I felt the bond of a sister. We may have had different Mothers, Jadens kind and caring and My Mother cold and calculating, yet we shared the same Father, strong, loyal to his people (perhaps not to his wife) and dedicated. Leaving me in a land found by people true to their land, who fought injustice and stood their ground. My life had hardened me, I knew I had to stay strong. There was no time right now for my emotions to show, it was I who had to take charge and prepare arrangements for the burial of my dear friend. I knew she was much more then a friend to Jaden she was like her family. She too knew the feeling of someone who felt like family yet did not share the same blood.
