Nocturnal Radiance

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Radiatia was born on the Titan Colony in orbit of Saturn in the early days of the Solarian Union. Her parents were killed in an unknown incident while she was very young, at the beginning of a crisis that would become known as “The Food War.” To survive, she endured incredible hardships, many of which damaged her young psyche almost beyond recognition. Orphaned, tortured, starving and freezing to death, she was rescued and adopted by the demoness (or angel, depending on your outlook) Sahaqiel, the Caller of Rogues.Intriguingly, she was born with white hair, quite odd for a human but not unheard of. She is not an albino, as might be suspected. Her eyes are a natural blue, not red, which is the natural color of the human eye when it lacks the pigmentation of the melanin compound.Over the years, Sahaqiel taught her the ways of magic, and at the age of sixteen, performed a Transfusion, imbuing Radiatia with the abilities and longevity of a Celestial being. In essence, Radiatia is the first true half-angel since the Nephilim.However, the Transfusion had an unintended side effect, giving the defense mechanism within Radiatia’s mind a personality and consciousness of it’s own, a radically different person from Radiatia. This new entity is known as Nocturnia.Though she is Radiatia’s defender, she is another person within Radiatia, coming to the forefront whenever Radiatia is faced with mortal danger, becoming the dominant personality. She occasionally refuses to relinquish control to Radiatia once the threat has passed, which can sometimes prove problematic. Radiatia is a passive, gentle girl, while Nocturnia is aggressive and confrontational in temperament.Under normal circumstances, they cannot communicate with each other, though they are aware of each other. By using the Mirror of Souls this situation has been remedied.With such communication possible, Nocturnia’s fury and aggression have begun to fade while Radiatia’s confidence grows stronger. It is thought that, through this communication with her dark side, her own inner pain and rage, Radiatia may be able to heal the wounds of her past and reintegrate Nocturnia into her being.____________________________This is just the beginning, or more accurately, a small part of a much larger story.
