World of Souls Intro

[This book is set in the same universe as both Fractured Mountains and Warlocke Chronicles but set in a distant future. This book will focus on the ISS Dominiot and its crew. It gives me something to work on when the other two stories hit writer’s block.]

Blavet Jowren (Yow-ren) was born in 4512 AWT (After Warp Travel) by the human calendar. He was born on the ISS (InterStellar Ship) Dominiot which was a small freighter owned by his parents. He was not just born on the ship, however, he was also born while in warp.

Blavet was an emris. Emris had three eyes that were large black orbs with the third eye being slightly above the plane of the other two. The race was covered in fur that was found in all hues of blues, greens, and in-between. They had a vaguely human build with two slits for a nose and human hands where both their hands and feet would be. They also had a long prehensile monkey-like tail that was usually around one and a half meters in length.

The fur on Blavet was pale blue in color and he had a slightly more human-like nose. He also had a shorter tail closer to one meter instead of one and a half and his eyes had a small rimming of white on the outer edges. These differences came from his father, who was not an emris, but a human.

When Blavet was only four years old he started to exhibit the power to move things at will. This was coupled with his father being a warlocke so he had both psionic powers as well as more traditional warlocke powers. Most half-breed emris didn’t inherit the bloodline powers of humans, but it was rare for a half-breed emris to be born during warp travel in addition to having the bloodline of a warlocke. His father often spoke to him of the destiny that he would no doubt have being the first emris to ever have the magic of a warlocke at his disposal. From then on his father devoted all travel time to teaching Blavet the art of casting as a warlocke.

One day in the year 4527 a few months after Blavet’s 15th birthday his parents were caught in a cargo accident and Blavet didn’t have the strength to stop the crates from killing them along with a dock worker. As an emris he was of adult age legally and he gained ownership of the freighter as well as all contracts his parents had held, so he didn’t have long to grieve before he found himself running the ship and its crew. He was thankful for the first mate, an old dwarf, that had helped his parents run the ship since before Blavet was born. The old dwarf kept things moving along until Blavet came back to himself, but shortly after the dwarf hired a salaman as his replacement and retired at the age of 150.
