What were the promises the gods had whispered in his ears when they could destroy his city and kill his people with their claws and knives and teeth. And what help had his magic been?

"Look at it burn," the sound was reverent as prayer. The speaker had been his neighbour, and she was the leading actress in this little play of his. Where Aera won[ and his city fell but the hero swore vengeance eternal. He was a little bit in love with that Spiral. The way her dark silhouette shone like an eclipse against the flames, and how the fires lighting her eyes like a hearth made her so beautiful in that quiet moment. The way a hurricane was beautiful. But that last raging memory was the only thing the militarized brainwashing of Aera's Exalt Rescue Program had left him with - the only thing he had left to love about his past life. So he loved it. He loved it. He loved it. Because they couldn't take that away from him - he wouldn't let them. And that knowledge pressed against his back like wings and sunk in his stomach like a stone. It curled around his throat like a fist and fluttered his heart like a kiss. He could not raise his city from the ground. But he could burn the capital down. And maybe that would be enough.

"Moondust in your lungs, stars in your eyes, you are a child of the cosmos, a ruler of the skies"

Div-_H-159.pngDiv-end-6x6.png



Above all things, Alphonse has faith. Faith in the deities, faith in his superstitions, faith in magic and faith in the future. But for all his faith in these things, not one helped him when the fire came. Where was his future when they forced him into the tunnels below? Or when they made him bow his head to the reign of a monster? What were the promises the gods had whispered in his ears when they could destroy his city and kill his people with their claws and knives and teeth. And what help had his magic been? As powerful as it was he turned tail and ran like all the rest when the knife finally came down. When the trickling suspicions in his heart came alight in the form of a beast intent on the death of magic. But then, he supposed, she was a wolf in sheeps clothing. But what of the earlier times? The good fortune he so carefully maintained did him no good as he desperately tried to survive on his own. What would have been luck would have been to die right along side his parents as their sickness took them. But no, fate had other ideas for him. And where were his gods! Where were his gods when his family lay dying of some ill fated illness? Where were any of these things when he needed them most? Through it all only Beachcomber had been there. He beloved was always there for him.

"The limits of my language mean the limits of my world"

When dragons first arrive in Aera, it comes as a shock when the
majority of the local populous doesn't understand Standard Draconic, and one may find themselves wishing they had kept the small book neatly labeled "An Outsider's Guide to Aera" that had been pressed into their claws on the way in. Unfortunately, you did not keep this book, and you are now in quite a dilemma, aren't you. However, if you had been a smarter creature, here's some of what your book would say.

*note: translations in apostrophes are not literal, merely the Standard Draconic
equivalent. Phrases listed as informal should not be used when interacting with dragons of a higher rank than one's self or dragons one does not know well. See the Hierarchy for details on rank
