The Story Of Eddie
Not long ago a lizard was born, his name was Eddie. He and his parents lived peacefully together for around three years before a tragedy occured. He grew up in the island of Paxia in a world we call Lore. He never had any good friends due since the other lizards were stronger, bigger compared to Eddie; making Eddie the one to be bullied and insulted. With one more year gone, tales of wars in the far away continent spread through Paxia, but it was never given attention. Who could find Paxia? It was a small island in the middle of the sea, lost through time. That's what everyone thought, but they never realized how wrong they could be.
One morning, an entire army was rested ashore, waiting to attack. Archers, fighters, mages and many more waited for the opportune moment. While they settled near shore, everyone else within the island panicked; chaos soon spreaded. To be safe, Eddie hid with his parents in a cave, hoping the war to finish and prayed for peace to overcome the land once more. But it did not. Before long, a powerful mage, the one commanding his army, discovered a cave; a cave where Eddie hid. Only getting a glimpse of him in a short period of time, his parent’s lives ended in a flash. A blazing spell was casted upon his mother and father. Their lives were taken. As Eddie gazed upon this horrible site and the man who did this, he swore to avenge his family.
No doubt there was some way, some how that he could be stopped. But what could a small lizard do? Ignoring everything, Eddie, eagered for revenge, made for his enemy with determination. Before Eddie reached the mage , a flaming red fox attacked. Jumping over the mage with anger, and without thinking it twice, he bit his neck, killing him instantly.
The fox looked at Eddie for a few moments, then turned around and headed for the exit. He was gone.
It started raining by the end of that day. The war had ended, and corpses rested in peace; some were waiting to be burn to hell. Those who survived, looked back at their villages finding only rest of what had been once their home, and hoped for a better future. Nevertheless, it soon spread the word of a giant living rock, with 8 arms and 4 feet, living at the east of the island.
Eddie didn’t think twice, he prepared himself and abandoned the island in search for the creature. If this creature was looking for trouble, he would not simply hide this time. He found the creature, finally after a week of traveling, through the desert lands of Paxia and the old battlefields. Along with this creature, Eddie found the fox that had put end to the war. Proudly he stood infront of Eddie. They were talking; Eddie, small and quick peeped through the bushes and tried to hear their conversation.
“You have proved to be brave, honest, and a good leader. For that, I now give you the gift of fire.”
Amazed by these words, Eddie continued listening and proceeded closer. Afterwards, a frog that was passing by walked over to the fox, they started shining. Eddie felt as his veins burned, his skin became stronger, and other emotions that cannot be described with simple words.
“Interesting," said the 8-arm creature. "This lizard and the frog got the powers too. Their hearts are pure and brave; so you may keep the powers too. You are now brothers, of blood and power, be unite and you shall always win.” Afterwards, the mysterious creature vanished further into the distance, while the frog jumped again and disappeared in the bushes.
“Noble brother, you must find out third brother. Dark times are approaching soon and we must be prepared, and united as brothers. Your strength is nothing compared to mine, but you will learn and grow in power and intelligence with the time. We are not alone, other allies will help us when the time comes, that's what the creature has predicted. Go on my friend, and start your quest to prove you're worthy of the mighty powers that you have just received."
And so Eddie started his quest to find his lost brother. His powers were still unknown and he was still a weak lizard, but who knows; he could one day save us all from that evil that was approaching.
Chapter Two of the Eddie Chronicles:
Sulva's Chosen Heir
Eddie awoke on a small ridge near the bottom of Mt. Inferno, the supposed place where fire itself was born. It was known now that the clan of the Igneus resides within the Volcanoes searing hot depths. Eddie was to go here to enhance his power before his search for his brother could ever hope to continue.
Eddie’s treacherous climb to the peak of the fiery mountain came to a slight halt when Eddie’s eyes caught a figure’s shadow cast upon the smoke of the brimstone. Eddie moved forward. "Who dares to try and scale the mountain of Fire's birth!" Eddie quivered. "My name is Eddie the Lizard, I have come seeking to enhance my fiery powers with the ashes of the Great Fire Spirit! To continue my quest to find and save my brother!" The figure disappeared with a faint echo in the distance, Eddie's mind could only manage to hear a scare amount of the words. "Come..then..where..all.else..ha--"
Eddie closed his eyes and walked forward, remembering the shadow’s words, trying to find their meaning. Eddie’s scales had not yet been developed fully as he was still very young, and the hot rock and ashes burned his tiny feet to the point of disintegration. Eddie groaned and climbed the mountain until he arrived at the peak. Then he heard the same faint voice.
"Those who wish to achieve the power of Sulva, dive into the fiery abyss your sought power has been birthed from."
Eddie’s tiny weak body fell into the abyss at his own will....he knew if anything, his painful torment would end if this power would not be his. His suffering was enough to drive elves, humans, and all animals alike to the brink of madness.
His body flailed and shook against the roaring steam and Eddie’s eyes closed as his dead body fell into the fiery pit, where he was thought to have met his doom.
Suddenly, the volcano started to rumble and its top smoldered and erupted with a vicious force. Some said entire cities were destroyed shortly after the top was blown.
The ashes began to writhe, and soon a small clawed red hand pushed its way to the surface, Eddie’s spirit and body had been reborn from the ashes of Sulva's blessing of fire. Soon a trail of flame flowed out of the volcanoe’s peak and flew into Eddie. Ensconcing him with the flames of Sulva itself.
The scales of the lizard shone as bright as diamonds and were as red as the lava. His shape had changed, he looked more human that lizard and his horns had disappeared. He felt the strength run through his veins and the courage burning in his heart. He had actual hands and legs which allowed him use weapons. He can run faster and swifter than before. He had been reborn with greater power, a power only one other had been able to achieve. The fox who had befriended him, Lord Igneox of the Igneus Clan he helped create.
Eddie soon floated back to the ground and felt no pain from the searing brimstone and ashes. He was now one with the fire, one with Sulva.
Chapter Three of the Eddie Chronicles:
This story is a short summary of what my life has been till this point. I was just a small lizard-woman when my parents were killed. Both of them worked helping the king of the lizard-men race, in an old castle far from my house. I saw them just a few hours per week, but I cannot say and will never say I wasn’t proud of them.
At home like the usual, my parents sat calmly on the couch, not sick and neither had a free day. Whatever their reason was to stay was a mystery. I played with my father all day, as my mother prepared me those delicious cookies she made. Unfortunately, the day ended as the sun set behind the horizon. The moon finally woke and rose high in the sky, as it was a signal for me to go to sleep.
Unexpectedly a noise interupted my sleep. It was still dark, in the middle of the night. In spite of that, I ran to my parent’s bed room. No one was there except for a light coming from my father’s office. I walked towards it, and peeped to see my father talking with my mother. I put my left ear next to the door, and tried to listen to their conversation.
“I know, we are doing the correct. We have few time left before Varieth kills us, we need to pass this time with our daughter.”
A week later, my parents were killed in a mass murder at the old castle, leaving me an orphan. Many people later wished to adopt me, I was intelligent and was very good at math, and I was a great strategist. I thank my parents for that important knowledge. So as I was saying, many wanted to adopt me, but I refused them all. I would not have any other father or mother that weren’t my original parents. The adults explained to me many times that bringing them back was impossible, but I continued with the same attitude.
8 years later, the city was attacked by Varieth. I recognized the name, the coward who had killed my parents, and so joined the resistance. There I met my first love, Maxilar. He was perfect, as a dream come true. He even made me forget about my terrible past when I was with him.
A month later, Varieth found our base and launched an attack on us. I was the only one who survived, thanks to Maxilar, who entertained the attackers and sacrificed his own life to save mine. I was alone again. I tried to make a new resistance group, and we used the old castle where my parents had once been murdered, which was now in ruins and was the last place where they would search us. There I met Havier, my second love. Havier resulted to be a spy from Varieth, who tried to kill me after I had told him everything, including our plan and our members. I luckily escaped, and now my home was lost.
Now I will start a journey; I will go east of Lore, where I shall try to find a calm island where to stay. I hope I find the place I’m wishing for, a place to call home, but I fear I will not love anymore. My love life has been a disaster, and I don’t wish to suffer anymore.
