(Note: The next page might be a bit later than usual since I once again am not sure when I’ll be back on sunday)

And here we are in chapter five. We start by taking a look at the one and only, incredible and mighty Gena (no autographs).

They are still quite a way from Serpent’s End or whatever they’re trying to search down there … but they basically have to travel across the whole known world to get down there. They are faster than most people due to being able to teleport quite large distances (with recuperation periods in between), but it’s still a huge distance.

Also Ki’i’Mar oversimplifies a bit here for the sake of a dramatic monolouge … there actually is no such thing as “the ancient language” … there were several, each with a lot of variations and dialects, some better preserved than others. But who has time for linguistics?

In other news: I’m trying to rework the cast page a bit – the old form of “write everything underneach each other” would have gotten unreadable quite soon. Also the old pictures were quite terrible. Right now I only have my main characters, there … which include Halen now. I think he’s earned the promotion.

<somewhere up north, in the night, Ki'i'Mar is floating and looking at the moons, while talking to Dragoon Na'Ki>
Ki'i'Mar: Tell me, Dragoon Na'Ki: Do you know what the word "Gena" ACTUALLY means? Yes, it is a TITLE, describing someone of EXCEPTIONAL POWER and ELEVATING her above the rest ...
It is also an HONOR and a PRIVILEGE, which has been gifted to me by the world. One that I am very AWARE of, by the way. Believe me.
It is also a theme of many LEGENDS, thus making it a synonym for "Hero". It carries with it the many GREAT and INCREDIBLE - and sometimes TERRIFYING - things that have been done by people with that title.
Those stories by far PREDATE the republic, by the way. I could tell you some stories that have been around in some form or the other since the days of the KHANS.
ORIGINALLY, though, the word comes from the ANCIENT LANGUAGE.
"GHENNOM". It means "the apex", "the final goal". That which everything has been leading up to. Sometimes it could also mean the resolution of a story. The CLIMAX if you will.

Ki'i'Mar: ... other times it could mean the END OF THE WORLD. Quite something to live up to ...
I think I like the "climax" thing the most. Don't you agree?
Na'Ki: ... as you say, Gena.
