This is a little story on Athera L. Jenasin, a character I play. It tells a bit of her life, and how she is nothing but a misled angel. I also fixed it up, now that I have a word processer and not some lousy word pad program.

A Mislead Angel

A  young elven girl was born into this world, named Athera Lynoa Jenasin, daughter to a priestess and a paladin. She got older, and was complimented for her beauty, as well as questioned for her silvery white hair that shimmered.  She was known best, however, not by her looks, but her heart, which seemed to be pure gold. She had a happy, and holy life, for she was taught things of good and justice, and was becoming a girl who perhaps could become Teaholinka's first holy sword, to protect the town, for she had fiery determination, and a knack for weapons and magic. However, disaster hit her life when she became 12, Teaholinka was attacked by nature's fury and a dose of bad fortune, a drought came first, causing crops to die, and animals to leave the region. Then, hunger was becoming a problem, but the drought ended, allowing crops to be grown and  new animals to live in the surrounding land. Fortune, however, didn't last long, for a dragon, whose mind and body was plagued with disease, sent scorching flames upon the town and land, killing animals and plants. Many people lived, but the land was now barren and was no longer plentiful with plants and animals, for the dragon's blood soaked into the soil (it was killed by a visiting dragon hunter, who still demands something in return for he did), and let me remind thee that it's blood was diseased, making land virtually unsanitary for farming and plants. Also, it went into the water, causing animals to die, and other animals left for good. A final permanent drought came, and left the land even more barren. People left in search of new land to settle upon, however, they helped rebuild the town of Teaholinka, which has recently been renamed, and renowned, as Saro, corresponding to it's one description, Town of Sorrows. Athera's life had then been plagued by sadness, her father, having  given up faith in holy powers and crusades, went to drinking, and occasional whore chasing, and her mother, a prostitute, having  given up belief of purity and justice. Thus, Athera was left alone and forgotten in the cold. She left with a dragon rider, who was passing by, and her passage out of Saro was hard won, for the dragon rider believed she would only stay for the ride and pick his pockets later. But her plea was not the only thing that enticed him to let her go with him, it was once again her mystical beauty that also made him accept her plea, instead of no to her riding with him.

    Many years later, after a hard life of making it from an orphan on the streets, to a beautiful and determined young woman, who seems to be a princess (and it seems a princess nearly asked Athera to take the crown for she could not help but envy and cherish her beauty). She has won the eyes of the phoenix, even the rarest of them all, travels with her, to protect her from harm, and to keep the oath that the Phoenix Circle made with Athera, and that is:

"We shall protect thy lady, from harm, may it be physical, or emotional,
We shall serve her as well, and  help her in any way possible,
For, Athera L. Jenasin, has a heart of gold that cannae be melted,
beauty comparable to the elven goddess of beauty, Magnolia,
and human goddess, Aphrodite,
she welds a sword of magic and wisdom as her weapon,
and uses it for what she sees is just, no matter who,
or what she is defending.
May she die, we shall honor her well, and make sure she is remembered."

The rare phoenix who protects is Britna, the white phoenix, who's flames are fabled to be as hot, or hotter, than the sun itself, however, that is only when she is provoked. Athera is nae only noticed by the eyes of the fiery birds, but of an evil man, Dalen DarkFyre, who has currently employed her as a scout, and warrior in battle. How? How you ask he did this, when Athera will fight only for a just cause? His lies can sound as truthful as truth itself. And even more horrible, is he makes Athera, who has longed to be feel love and warmth from another, believe he loves her.... she has so far thought it to be very much so true. She follows him and listens to every thing he tells her. She has stolen the most important thing for Dalen to have, and that is the Armageddon Medallion of Chevor, the ultimate destruction. She is skilled in getting  past traps, stole it with ease. She is now being hunted down by Mai Long, a hunter of all kinds, she is of the Holy Dragon Circle, as all of her relatives are, and is in the Demon Hunter clan, she is a bounty hunter for hire, as well as a hunter  of demons, vampires, werewolves (and other were-folk), dark angels (yes, in certain places, they are hunted out and killed, like vamps), zombies, dragons, and other things. Athera believes that what Dalen's goal is to kill out all evil and plagues, and to make the world peaceful again.... and she'll keep believing that, untill she sees with open eyes that it all is nothing but lies. Thus, those who know she is being misled, know her as..... a mislead angel from heaven, walking the wrong route back to her home....

Iris I think your story is great and you should write more about Athera. Also I think you should add more details in your story about Athera.
