This is Taris, the rider of Marian. He was just a baby when little boy Marian first laid his eyes on him. From that day on it was impossible to seperate the boy from the infant. Marian (born a dragon but raised by human parents, unaware of his heritage) would carry his little friend with him whereever he would go. That never changed. Only today Marian will carry Taris through the air, high up in the sky. Airborne they were closer than ever. If only the war would end soon.
