In one of the many calm and peaceful sights that China had to offer, an old woman sat down to begin her morning ritual.
Though at first glance she seems like someone who has nearly always had a perfectly peaceful life, never having to break a nail to get through the obstacles placed in front of her, she is one of the few who have suffered through more than what was needed.
Mary Whitelight. Grand-daughter of Balthier and Angel, and daughter of Cain and an anti-supernaturalist named Larissa.
She is a woman who came to China to get away from home and learn how to fight.
She has a soul that was ripped and shredded and then put back together again and again until finally, one day, it was met with peace.
A descendant of a long forgotten line of clairvoyants, Mary has spent most of her life honing her premonition skills to a level close to the greatest of her ancestors.
Everyday she meditates to receive the visions that will tell her of her family’s future, and on rare occasion, the future held for the rest of the world.
On most days, she sees the excited faces of her niece’s children and the determined posture with which her werewolf niece proudly goes through life.
However, today was not one of those days. It was a day for a dark premonition, one containing a dark image of what lay in store for the future.
A premonition of a face not seen in generations.
The mere blurring of the image was more than enough to worry the great clairvoyant.
And bang, we start James’ generation with a prologue! This is going to be so amusing :D, I’ve never started a generation with the heir still being a child!
Long time no see Mary! I came close to not having a prologue like this at all! When I moved towns for Sariel’s generation I only brought her, Rex, Rosa, Cain and Balthier. I left everyone else here. However, I kept an old version of my twinbrook save containing a whole bunch of old characters I wanted to bring back! For example Mary, who’s pretty essential to the whole backstory considering she’s one of the only two clairvoyants in the world. The other one being Aliska.
Ahem, anyway, stay tuned for the next chapter XD
