~Rising Shadow~

Lord Darigan's meeting with the metamorph Tenultra

For years, few or none knew that two shadows stalked the land: one a nameless, faceless fear, and the other no more than a passing thought in the minds of those inclined to ponder the unusual. No one knew of the war that was waged in the background of Neopia's day-to-day turnings, between powers that had been designed to conquer the world; and no one suspected the torment that haunted the younger of these beings as she fought against the other, her hideous past assailing her dark present unmercifully, a battle that was forced into secrecy as the rest of her life had been. And no one, Lord Darigan least of all, would have guessed that amid all her troubles she had long been guarding him from afar, keeping her self-inflicted duty as a defender raised as a shield between her turbulent heart and the longing whose fulfillment had long been denied to her.

But her enemy was moving, and as Miaglo Darkwind began his quest to take the most powerful beings in Neopia captive, a collision course was set between the shapeshifting warrioress Tenultra, her unknowing charge, Lord Darigan, and the secrets of Tenultra's past and the hidden torment that came with them.

And, when Tenultra and Darigan were forced to take refuge together, the things Tenultra had spent most of her life hiding were finally revealed: a tie to the thieves who had stolen the Orb, and a multitude of atrocities she had comitted against her will, under the power of the evil that Neopia knew as Sloth. And, even as she braced herself for the anger, revulsion and rejection that nearly always came in the wake of such a risk, the lonely warrioress found the friendship and acceptance she had thought she would never have.

As Miaglo, thirsty for vengeance against the planet that had once rejected him, against Tenultra, who had become his archnemesis, and against Darigan, who had escaped his clutches, continued on his hidden rampage, the unlikely pair of friends whom his actions had helped to bring together set out from their refuge to contest him in a conflict that would determine the fate of Neopia.


~Sword of the Shapeshifter~

The battle against Miaglo Darkwind

They came alone, in the darkest hour of the night: the lord of the Citadel and the quiet guardian of Neopia's underworld, slipping into the fortress while its master was abroad. None could withstand them, and the dungeons of the dark stronghold soon opened before them, new life cascading among the cold cells as the captives were released.

But the master of the fortress returned, and with him came the darkest of the demons that had haunted Tenultra's and Lord Darigan's pasts. Bonds of friendship newly forged were tested near their limits; determination wavered but held- until it came to the final test, which Tenultra had no choice but to face alone.


~Different This Time~

Tenultra enters normal society

Ever since she lost her family to war and her identity as a Neopian to the experiments of Dr. Sloth, Tenultra has sought a purpose in life on the battlefield, protecting others in order to ease her loneliness with one-way alliances that were never returned. But this time, things are different. This time, she is entering the lives of others not as a source of protection that they will never see again, but as a member of society who will forge connections with other people, either friendly or otherwise, that she will not be able to discard if they prove painful. Through this process, the former covert defender will be forced to accept either healing or new and deeper wounds, and the choice of which she gets is one that only the people around her can make.
