Kealty has a sunny disposition. She can find the positive in nearly any situation. Her purpose in life is to bring joy and goodness to Neopia. She enjoys traveling, dressing up and eating delicious faerie bubbles as well as delectable gourmet food.
Kealty's favorite locations to explore are Altador, Faerieland and Maraqua. She is one of those rare beings who feels comfortable in every situation and all surroundings and thus puts others at ease. She is equally adept at flying, walking and swimming.
Dear Diary, It's happening again--those strange spells. I think I might have some rare illness. Maybe I should tell my owner. I'm afraid I might fall out of the sky if I'm ever flying when I get one of those visions. The world just goes black and I feel like I'm in some prehistoric dream state, everything looks so different…. And the voice in my head…. How do I make it stop?
Kealty pondered what she'd written and made a decision, tomorrow she'd tell her sister. Krawkie was over 1700 days old whereas Kealty was only 100, all those extra days must have given her some wisdom that she could share with Kealty.
However, Krawkie was just as perplexed when Kealty shared with her what she was experiencing. "Hmmm, I've never in all of Neopia heard of anything like that," She said. "Tell you what, let's go over to the hospital and ask one of the Nurses if you have any of the common illnesses and what they would recommend to cure you.
The Nurse asked Kealty a million questions about her gums, her head, whether or not she had any rashes or itchy skin… On and on and on… Finally she said, "Maybe it's a strange case of the doldrums, why don't you try rubbing some Mushroom Ointment on your face for a few days and see if you feel better. So, they bought some Mushroom Ointment at the Pharmacy on the way home and Kealty faithfully rubbed it on her face for the next several days.
Still the spells persisted, once she even got one when she was down at the Employment Agency. By the time she came back to feeling like herself she almost missed the job deadline. This was getting embarrassing, she never missed job deadlines, always finished her jobs in record time. Something had to be done about these strange incidents.
Kealty really hated to bother her owner, who was going through her own crisis at the moment, but she felt at this point she had no choice. Blackwater was very wise, she would definitely have heard of this before or know what to do. Who could have predicted that Blackwater was just as perplexed over these systems as Krawkie and the Nurse had been. "Wow, those are absolutely not normal symptoms of any illness, Kealty," She said. "Have you eaten any of the gourmet mushrooms recently? Have you eaten anything that disagreed with you?" Blackwater asked. "I haven't eaten any mushrooms for months now, nor have I eaten anything that made me sick and I've been having spells several times a day," Kealty replied.
Ok, hmmmm, I think we need to go see Ilere," Blackwater announced. "Ilere! Who is THAT," Kealty asked? "Ilere, is an Earth Faerie, but she's…. let's say a bit darker than Illusen. She lives over in Neovia. In fact, let's go by Altador and see if Koyenta can come with us. Koyenta has studied with Ilere and Sophie and she can introduce us all," Blackwater stated, making plans as she spoke.
As the trio gathered in Ilere's cottage, in hushed anticipation; the beautiful, elfish-looking Faerie cloaked in a dark green robe, took Kealty's hand in hers and held it with her eyes closed for quite a long time. Finally, she spoke, "Kealty, you are chosen.
Let me tell you a true story. A long, long time ago in Neopian pre-history, creatures known as Tikwyren roamed the land near present-day Tyrannia. They were ghastly, fire-breathing beasts that had wings but were unable to fly due to their massive size. They differed in appearance from the smooth-coated Chombigrukin species by virtue of their scaly hides and their enormous ears. As time progressed, the Tikwyren specialized and mutated into several separate species, which became known as Scorchio, Shoyru, Krawk, Draik and Hissi. Of all of them, only the Draiks became completely comfortable in the air, water and on land. As the Draik's size diminished in response to their flying ability, they retained their enormous ears and the ability to hear even the minutest sounds as well as to sense the tiniest vibrations.
Now you're probably wondering how this relates to you and your gift. Very, very rarely, a Draik is created that retains some of the characteristics to the magical Tikwyren. When that happens we say they have 'The Memories.' You are one of those special Draiks.
To Be Continued...
Which came first the Draik or the Egg? Or in this situation, we ask which came first the pet or the petpet?
One bright morning, a Faerie Hegelob was discovered hovering right outside the front door of our Faerieland home. None of us had ever seen a Faerie Hegelob before so we were quite stunned by this exquisite discovery! Of course, we knew that Hegelobs are mystical creatures that are usually found in the waters of Shenkuu and yet we could obviously see that this little creature was more suited to flying and seemed to prefer it. We decided to bring the little sea horse in out of the cold; we felt sure her owner would show up at any moment to claim this little jewel of a petpet.
Days went by and no one claimed the tiny being. Meanwhile we went out of our way to assure her comfort. We asked everyone we knew if they or someone they knew had lost a Faerie Hegelob petpet--soon the news had spread throughout Faerieland but still no one came to claim her. By this time, she had throughly captivated us and we were completely enthralled with this tiny, but silent petpet.
We gave her access to the ponds and fountains in the back of the house, in case she felt like bathing or swimming, her favorite was the Light Faerie Fountain, but most of the time she preferred to hover around us and participate in whatever we were doing. She was obviously an intelligent petpet but in spite of our questions about where she had come from and which pet she belonged with, she never uttered a single sound.
About a week after she arrived, a package showed up. Had it not been so clearly addressed to our home, I would have thought surely it had been delivered to the wrong location. Inside the package was a brilliant blue Draik Egg! The little petpet who we had started calling, Jewel, because of the way her beautiful iridescent scales glittered in the sunlight, became exceedingly animated when she saw the Draik Egg. She hovered over the egg and would not leave it. All night long she hovered over the egg. Nothing we could do would coax her into leaving the egg to get some sleep.
First thing the next morning, we gathered up the egg and headed up to the Draik's nest. This would be the first Draik in our family and we were all very excited. No one was more excited than little Jewel. I'd never seen her so cheerful and vigorous, she looked like she was ready to erupt with radiance. As we settled in to wait for the Draik to hatch, we were tossing name ideas back and forth, when unexpectedly the little Faerie Hegelob started chirping and tweeping and making all kinds of racket. We were all astonished as she hadn't made a single sound up to now.
Right at the same moment, our Draik hatched into a stunningly delicate female Draik. We tried to hold Jewel back for a few moments to give our Draik time to take in the situation but we were too slow. Uttering a long whinney she rushed over to the female Draik and the two of them immediately started nuzzling and communicating in sounds none of us could comprehend.
Then it dawned on me. This amazing petpet had somehow magically appeared to become a companion to a Draik we didn't even know would be coming to live with us. That kind of magic leaves you spellbound!
The Draik we had hatched became known as Kealty, ultimately only she was able to understand the utterances of her now talkative petpet. She also changed her name from Jewel to Jubilation because together they truly represented what it means to be jubilant.
Which came first, the Draik or the egg? For us it happened to be a magical, jubilant petpet.
