Dragons, the Eons of Promise – Folklore Friday

Dragons have always been the outsiders amongst all the Eons, as they were the only Power not made by the Creator. As he finished forming Eonika, he called in the dragons from beyond the White Void and gave them the honour and burden of leading the war against the Hollow that surrounded his creation.

When the dragons came to Eonika they brought something with them from their home world – an artefact called the Source. Now only legends remain about that mystical item, but all the myths agree on one thing – it was an object of immense power and what the dragons fed on.

Although originally there were nine dragon lines only five are know to this day, the Faithful Ones. The other four are only known by their common name, the Traitors, for they betrayed the Creator’s trust by stealing the Source for themselves and fleeing beyond the White Void. Some legends claim they aligned themselves with the Hollow, while others have them simply abandon the Creator’s cause and disappear never to return.

The Known Eons – Folklore Friday

Every type of Eon is connected with a one of the Powers. This is why although only seven Eons are known there are speculations about potentially three more that would be aligned with the remaining Powers.

The known Eons are:

Stars – the Eons of Law

Stars are known as the guardians of destiny and fundamental laws. All mortals (with rare exceptions) have their own Star which holds their destiny.

Angels – the Eons of Miracles

Although they represent  creation and the exultation that follows such acts most of the ones still left in the world devote themselves to researching ways of rejoining the Creator, who has long left the world.

Wildlings and Giants – the Eons of Possibilities and Magnitude

These two are an intersting case as they represent two aspects of the same power of greed and frolicking – Wildlings in Azure and Giants in Crimson.

Daemons – the Eons of Power

The essence of the Daemons lies in their inability to satiate their lust for power. They will do anything and everything to increase their might and gain more power. They are said to be able to break any restrictions or limitations.

Dragons – the Eons of Promise

Dragons are known for their affinity with words and knowledge. The promise refers to the vow they made to the Creator of the world – to protect his Creation, at all cost.

Gods – the Eons of Order

They are the only Eons with the right to meddle with the mortals after the Pact of Powers. Mortals who have blossomed when blessed by their God’s Love or burned scorched by the God’s Anger.

Beasts

Beasts are considered to be the most horrifying of all Eons. So horrifying in fact, that the Power they serve so far remains unnamed. Just mentioning the name of a Beast could bring harm to the person using it, hence studies have been sparse.

Folklore Friday – The Wildling Fathers

There are many dangers lurking in Azure. This land of dreams goes by many names, but some folks simply call it The Wild due to its unpredictable nature. Hence the Eons in Azure are called Wildlings, or more specifically Wildling Fathers.

There were twelve Eons of Possibility, and although they are not all male they are all called the Fathers.

  1. Keresh – the Companion – Dream of the Sky
  2. Otygx – the Jester – Dream of Dreams
  3. Edrusalabim – the Tracker – Dream of Power
  4. Horzunga – the One Eyed Archer – Dream of the River
  5. Guardora – the King of Ashes – Dream of Authority
  6. Serhaddru – the Wolf – Dream of Shadow
  7. Carnack – the Prisoner – Dream of Pain
  8. Treitzell – the Beast Killer – Dream of Conflict
  9. Birlodd – the Lamplighter – Dream of Gold
  10. Anfedreil – the Scarecrow – Dream of Fear
  11. Jailah – the Clay Man – Dream of Hunger
  12. Imilahala – the Golden Knight – Dream of the Sun

Some legends claim that The Wild itself actually consists of the vast bodies of the twelve Eons intertwined together and kept away from Crimson, the real world, by the thin barrier of the Sky. But as no one has really met those ancient beings (or lived to tell the tale) this is all treated more as a myth than reality. Some claim that the Fathers do meddle with mortals in Crimson in various forms, but whether these are the actual Eons, or just other powerful beings claiming to be them, is debatable.

Similarly there are heated discusions between scholars about whether Wildlings (the offspring of the first twelve) are Eons themselves or not. The most popular theory is that there is a power leakage between generations and each child is less and less of an Eon. Most of the Wildlings one can meet accidentaly while dreaming are not very powerful compared to their ancestors. This does not mean they should be taken lightly, as their powers are still far beyond a mortal’s imagination.

Considering most encounters are with the lesser kind, and that being Eons, Wildlings are effectively immortal, questions are often raised where are the older ones?

As parents Wildlings tend to go to extremes – when they are fond of their children they will care greatly and do almost anything for their offspring. On the other hand some are known to ignore, abandon or even show hostility towards their progeny. This is interesting to mortals, as it can be an excellent point of leverage if you happen across one that is protective over their children. Unfortunately it could just as well backfire, if you find yourself to be dealing with one that couldn’t care less.

With so much unknown about the Wildlings and specifically the Wildling Fathers it might be strange that such a detail as their names is common knowledge. This is thanks to Akheron Warlocks who first recognized the various dreams and Forces behind them and gave them names.
