I never new of light and darkness, good vs. evil, all there was, was my family, my village, and the rest of the world.
I had a peaceful life, with my mother, Darleen Staren, my dad, Carlisle Staren, and my sister, Kaleen Staren, and then there’s me, Castrule Ethealeion.
 
My life was great even though I was adopted. I don’t know who my birth parents where, but I loved my life.
 
My dad taught me sword fight and every thing a father would teach his 16 year old son, and my mother taught me every thing a mother would teach her 16 year old daughter.
 
The only thing that I did not like was the faked that I had to ware a dress, I heated dresses. I couldn’t move it was like I was restrained.
 
I was none as the town fighter. All the boys where scared, and all the girls where disgusted, except for my sister and my friend jenny lorn. When the bandits came I fought them off along side the village men.
 
I was a girl but I acted like a boy, I even had my hair cut short, and when ever I could I wore pants.
 
It was the best life I could ask for. I don’t think there was another place I would want to live.
 
 
Then my life started to spiral down. My grandparents died, then my aunts and uncles. I thought it was just a coincident. But then the animals started to die in the middle of the night. Then a dark spot in the sky appeared.
 
Then it really all started when they came.
 
They first killed my mother and sister in the house, and then they went to the barn and slathered my father as if he was an animal.
 
My heart filled with hatred and I swore to the goddess that I would find and kill the men who did this. That’s when I saw the darkness in the midday sun grow.
 
I went back to the house and bared my mother and sister, as well as my father. I took all the clothing in the house and made travelers clothing, for my self. I went to the storage room and found a sword that had a flame like thing for the hilt.
 
I don’t know why, but the name of the sword came to me, “Flame Blade” I whispered, and at that moment I knew that the sword was mine to weald.
 
I also found two daggers, one was thick, as if to gut an animal, and the other one was thin as to throw, but looked like a paint brush. The hilt was the shape of the brush; the blade was the part of the handle.  They both came with a strap and holster; I strapped the thick one on to my right thigh, and the paint brush one to my right ankle.
 
I also found a staff, it was mesmerizing. There was an orb flouting in four metal braces that where holding a blue/purple stone.
 
Then there was pounding, so I ran to the door. When I opened the door my friend Jenny gave me huge hug and said “I’m so sorry!! I can’t believe this has happened! Oh Castrule what happened?!”
 
“Look Jenny I can’t talk I need to get ready to go.” I said impatiently.
 
“What? Go where?” she pulled her arms back and placed them on her hips.
 
“I’m going to find throe’s men who did this and kill them!” That’s when the first tear rolled down my cheek.
 
“Look you can’t do that –WH-what are you going to do? Gut them?” she chuckled.
 
“I just need to do this okay.” I said while I started to go back into the house.
 
Jenny grabs my arm and said “Castrule please be carful- for the sake of your parents.” Then she let go and left.
 
I went back to the storage and rapped up the staff and pulled the sword onto my back.  I grabbed the rest of my stuff and left the house, not even locking up the door.
