I am told by a friend that the events of my life will be important to posterity. While I am inclined to agree with her assumption, I disagree with her request that I make a record of my life. I feel I am ill suited to the task, for I am no great author of literature or even of pamphlets. I am but an embattled, accidental leader of a group of people unfairly persecuted. But as Lillian is quite persistent, I have agreed to at least attempt to keep record of the events that occur around me. For any poor souls forced to read this in the future, you have my sincerest apologies – I’m afraid my writings may seem dry and dull.

My name is Darcella Pryce. I have seen fifteen winters, and for all my life I have been hunted. I am hunted because I am Darkborn, and because Darkborn are supposed to be evil supporters of the Dark Ones. There is a good chance that the system of Finding is different in the time in which you read this, so I will explain. In the world there are six Fundamentals, each of which has an opposite. There are Light and Dark, Fire and Water, and finally, Air and Earth. Children are born into one of the Fundamentals. I will draw the connections below so it is easier to understand.

The Tangible Fundamentals are subsets of the true Fundamentals. While most children are born of the Tangible Fundamentals and so have minor power over their Fundamental, a rare few are born of the Fundamentals themselves. In example, while a child born of Fire Fettered may have a gift for starting small fires, a child bore of Fire itself would be able to control fire on a much greater and much more precise scale. While the Lesser Four (Fire, Water, Air, Earth) are fairly common, children born of either Light or Dark, in any purity, are far more rare.
