Have you ever been in total darkness? Well, the darkness I am going to show is even darker than that. My darkness is the mine in the Nightmaren world, a parallel dimension. This darkness will store the millions of stories of the Nightmaren world and the planet's life and history.
Have I ever read one story? No, we aren't allowed to touch the books. We need to dig and dig only. We need to work in the darkest parts of the mines.
Am I happy with that? Why do you think my eyes are sewed up? You couldn't see a thing down there, not a little thing. I scratched my eyes out, I would never see the daylight again, but it was so painful. I didn't have to dig for over a month, they needed to make sure my eyes were all right.
By then they discovered there was one book missing, a book with potions and how to make them. Before the sewed my eyes up, I could see the library master for once and gasped. I think I was one of the few who saw the dream god up close. But it was too painful to really concentrate on what I actually saw.
But then I needed to train to see on hearing, but that was easy because I didn't saw a thing before I scratched out my eyes.
I'm Eon, and this is my life.
Outside the minePersonality:
Closed, Depressed, anti-social, lost everything what ment something for him.
Family: Mother was taken away to be never seen again and I never knew my Dad.
Love: What is that?
Status: Working in the mine.
Main Fur: Grey
Markings: Dark Brown saddle spot on his back.
Extra: His eyes are sewed up.
Eon was a joyful and happy eyrie until the day he was taken away from his mom. He fought with the care takers and with himself. Once he was sent in the mines he was settled with the fact he would never see his mom again.
Once working his butt off in the mines he began to think about stuff he didn't understand, but began to understand matters of life by asking the other miners. Eon became depressive from the darkness and the lack of knowledge about matters he really wants to understand.
One day it was too much for him and he scratched his eyes out and he had to be brought back to the surface to sew everything up and there he saw that was in the mines of the Nightmaren library. But he couldn't actually see a thing and then saw Parchment and realised what he saw was a dream like reality.
Once he was fully recovered he began to plot an escape route out of the mines he was in, but hasn't succeeded until now.
He belongs to the species Hybrid Nightmaren and is called: saddle patch eyries. They're well known because of their strength and intelligence, men used them in the old days to pull their wagons and royal men were riding on them.
This all stopped because the Nightmaren began to claim them because they were half Nightmaren. Some of the creatures came along happy with the Nightmaren, but some were bounded with their human owners and had to be taken by force.
Eon grew up in the village near the huge volcano where they were digging into for the stories and books of the whole planet and this parallel dimension. And Eon loved it in that village, the Nightmaren complimented him with his bright yellow eyes and that was the thing Eon was most proud of.
He didn't have horns, which were very common in the species so he wasn't loved by the male eyries which did have ram like horns.
But once he was forced to work in the mine nobody could see his yellow eyes and at one time the compliments he got when he was little were faded away and he thought nobody was worth it to see his yellow eyes, not even Eon himself. So he scratched them out and the care takers needed to sew his eyelids together to prevent a huge infection.
The metal frame around Eon's body was given to him when he began to work and grew into it, so now he can't get it off without ripping any legs off. This frame is used to pull mine carts up and down the tunnels to get rid of all the rubble. Eon did this work for a long tie until he was strong enough to begin to dig in the hard rock of the mountain.
Chapter one: A Brand New Name
The first thing I heard was the voice of my mother, sweet and soothing. But soon after that I heard the humans and I was lifted up and being examined by them.
-'This one has also Nightmaren blood in it, this female eyrie has great genes, even if we use a normal male eyrie.' I didn't know what that meant, but I didn't feel right about what they said. My mom was calling for me and I was calling for her, but the humans were still examining me.
Then I felt something huge and cold to my chest and I squealed from fear. Later I saw that they were listening for my heartbeat, but at that moment it was huge and cold.
After a few tests later I was put back with my mother who gave me a name: Eon.
A few months later I was allowed to go outside with my mom and she told me everything about freedom, that the world between these walls wasn't the whole world. It had more beauty than this, but I was fascinated by the grass, the stones, and the soil I began digging in it.
The humans saw this and from that moment I was destined to be a miner in the city. But before I was old enough some strange creatures came to the laboratory. They spoke to the humans and demanded they would give all the creatures to them with Nightmaren blood in them.
These creatures were the full blood Nightmaren and the humans didn't want to hand us over, but than one Nightmaren jumped at a human and killed it. I felt disgusted and I was scared. I hadn't seen my mom in a while and I was calling for her, but she didn't responded.
The humans were collecting us and I was panicking, where was my mom? Then a kind Nightmaren walked towards me and asked where my mom was and I didn't know. She walked away and some time later she came back with my mom, but my mom was wounded.
-'Mom, what happened?' I asked while we were walking with the selected group hybrid-Nightmaren.
-'The humans were first trying to get me in a cage and then lock me away, but I fought against them and them they began to hit your mom. I was relieved that this kind Nightmaren came to rescue me.
I didn't know it back then, but this was a small incident compared to the rest of my life. And I was walking right into it.
