World changing events are coming to Abantey. Our group of heroes knows nothing of this, as they set sail northward from the bitter cold desert of Nar Ram Mar. Will these extraordinary events find them in the open ocean?

Our Cast of Heroes

Achala Jabez

Achala Jabez

Most Feeshans – even Slaar Clan Feeshans – choose professions suited for their charismatic nature.

Not Achala.

The job. It’s all about the job. Being a guard, staying alert, defending the weak. Focus. Ignore those who are attracted to your beauty. Revel in battle, rise to the challenge.

Anything to keep away the omnipresent grief, the relentless sorrow, the pain. It haunts her dreams and her waking hours – the death of her parents. Consumed in front of her young eyes – stripped of flesh, bit by bit, screaming.

Saved by Al Muhaymin, a Slaar Guard. The Wa’la taught her everything she knows to keep the memories at bay. The Slaar Clan Code of Honor gives her further purpose – will she remain able to use restraint?


Ferran

Ferran

Ferran was once trusting, willing to believe that everyone told the truth, that everyone was virtuous. He was excited about the world and all the good it held. Then the hybrid war came. His entire world changed. He saw many people, some that he loved, and many whom he trusted, change dramatically, becoming monsters doing the bidding of a great evil.

This changed Ferran.

He saw how easy it was for people to be changed. How easy something powerful could make someone a monster. He lost his trusting nature. He withdrew, preferring to watch instead of engage, only allowing a few to get close to him.

Now, he is leaving Nar Ram Mar and its protection. What will he find in the greater world? Will it reinforce his solitude, or teach him to trust again.


Pen

Pen

One day, when Pen was a child, he was playing inside a building, and the building collapsed. He became overwhelmed by the feeling of being trapped, of having no recourse, of being helpless.

As he was pinned in the wreckage, he struggled to determine how it had happened, what had caused the building to collapse. He understood that a building followed natural laws, cold logic, nothing like the honor that the Slaar clan followed.

The idea of cold logic, of natural laws, inspired him to learn more. To learn the laws of the universe, to seek the significance and essence of honor, and to search for a connection between the natural and cold laws of the universe and the code of honor with which he was so familiar.

Pen hopes that this endeavor –  to learn the natural laws of the universe, to investigate the code of honor –  will allow him to be prepared for the future. And, perhaps, he will be able to share this knowledge with others through story.


Umbra

Umbra

When she was a child, Umbra knew what honor was –  to be like her mother, a member of the Slaar Clan.  Her mother was the center of her world. But when her mother was nearly killed and hybridized, Umbra began to question the honor of the Slaar. 

Slaar honor seemed to be only one piece of an elusive whole. To fight honorably could not be the only thing, otherwise those who do not fight would have no honor. Umbra could see that those who did not fight were often the most principled of all. 

So what, then, is honor? 

Is it possible to live with honor and never fight? What of people who choose to hurt those who do not fight? People are needed to defend those who can’t fight. So, Umbra chooses to risk her honor so that others may keep theirs.


Wolf Starplitter

Wolf Starsplitter

Wolf Starsplitter has known nothing but the Code of Honor and the Slaar compound in Nar Ram Mar. For him the Code of Honor isn’t a way of life, it IS life. One could call him a zealot, as he simply doesn’t know any other way to live than by the Ways of the Slaar.

Will his devotion hold as he leaves the Slaar compound and experiences the outside world? Will his trusting nature lead him to question his ways? Will this adventure change him beyond recognition?
