A Dragon’s Soul

(1 customer review)

Kalos was the first sentient creature the Gods created who could speak. He was born an immortal creature filled with eternally churning emotions, brilliant intelligence, and never-ending thoughts. A magnificent creature who would one day be respected, feared, and called the mighty Fire Dragon. Yet with all his gifts of birth… Kalos was a creature born without a soul.

“A Dragon’s Soul” is the Legend of Kalos, the Fire Dragon, and his 7,000-season quest to find his soul and the souls of all Dragons. Set long before Man or any of the Races were created and Mernac was only inhabited by the Gods, Kalos is charged with discovering two things to earn his Soul.

Except: The Eternal Quest (ch. 39)

“Ask them this: The reason why they, or any being on Mernac, was created? If they answer correctly, ask them: What greater purpose do they serve in the universe? If both are answered correctly, then, and only then, they will be gifted a Soul.”

Would you earn your Soul?

 

First Half-Page

Most think that Kalos was the first dragon placed on Mernac, but according to the learned scholars from The Great Library of Hob, this is not the case. From their studies of the Half Pages from The One Book, it has been discovered that actually his sister, Kellium, was The First Dragon. The same “Kellium” who the mystical ink that always reveals the truth, is named for. 

But that was eons and eons, before the birth of the Race of Man, so it is quite understandable if the facts are sometimes muddled.

 In those early days, before the recording of words, or the practice of writing was even conceived, Siberlee, the Mother of Nature, became bored with all the creatures on Mernac. It was not that she did not adore her creatures and beasts. It is well known that The Mother of Nature dearly loves all the creatures she and the other Gods created. It was… It was because none of them had the gift of speech. 

At the time, Siberlee had been on Mernac for some 5,000, perhaps 10,000 Seasons. Though she loved her 19 brothers and sisters dearly and spoke with them regularly – what could be said had already been said 1000 times. What could be discussed had already been discussed time and time again. Simply put, Siberlee wanted someone, or maybe something, new to speak with. So she asked her sister Sola, the Mother of Light and Life, to create a creature or beast who could talk.

 The two worked together for what may have been a Moon, or it may have been 1000 Moons, as time had little meaning to the Gods in those times. They used all the life-giving magic Sola had been born with. They tried to enhance this with Siberlee’s considerable powers. On fish and frog they tried. On eagle, bear, and even snake they experimented. From the smallest of ant to the largest of mammoth, the two Goddesses worked their magic and powers.

They had…
