Hello Friend. It is an honour to meet you and for you to get to know a little more about me.

The first thing you should know is that I am an elf, and not just any elf. I am descended from Ilmar, the Glass Master—the greatest elven wizard to have ever lived—and it is (or was) my duty to become the next elf to hold that title and the power which goes with it.

However, destiny had other plans for me, so here I am, baby-sitting a precocious teenager from a completely different world who knows nothing about magic, let alone how to use it. As well as that, she has no self-confidence, lacks any kind of battle training, and is a monumental pain most of the time.

Sometimes I wonder what made me bind myself to her with blood ties that can never be broken, but I suppose that is the thing about destiny—it often takes you down roads you might never have thought to travel, and makes you do things any sane person would never contemplate.

But I don’t complain. Elorysia is my home and its future is under threat from a monster of darkness, the likes of whom has not been seen for generations. Even were it not my destiny, I would fight ‘til my last breath to protect this land and the people I love, and make sure the light is never allowed to fade.

Destiny has put me here with Charley and given me a purpose which I intend to fulfil. Besides, if I had not accepted my fate, I would never have met Violet, the woman of my dreams, the love of my life, and my heart’s desire. So, maybe this destiny is not so bad after all.

As you read about our adventures, I look forward to travelling this path with you and helping you to discover more about me, Charley, and Violet. You never know…you might find out for yourself if magic really does exist in your world as well as mine.

Until we meet again…
