Lilett's new page is coming soon. :) I'm working on it!
But whilst Lilett was not afraid of death, she would not accept her fate. Despite the fire inside her heart was growing stiller by the second, burning less brightly... she did not have the will to die. That was a part of her, despite being a small part, that knew deep within her core that she had a destiny to fulfil, and for the first time of her life she realized that perhaps she had not fulfilled it yet. It was not her time. She would not allow herself to die.
And it was perhaps her will that kept her going for so long. Her pained eyes continued to gaze longingly into the heavens, until they finally rested on a lick of blue that burned in the sky. Blue flames scoring the night. But as her own fire within herself stilled, she realized that the blue was not burning but was the opposite, it was melting... a comet.
And still to this day, Lilett does not understand what happened to her that night. It was as if as she stared at that icy body racing past the planet, it gave her that last will to live. Her world suddenly darkened as she finally gave way to her subconscious. The fire within her that powered her soul burnt out. Her warm colouration in her feathers faded to soft greys and white, with the occasional lick of blue... like a comet. Her prayers had been heard, and had given her a second chance. She had been reborn. But when she would awake again, no longer was she a Drakares of flame, but one of ice...
The Drakares are mystical birds that have been around since ancient times. The name is literally translated into Dragon birds, but they are more commonly known as Phoenixes. It is a little known fact that Phoenixes do not just wield the power of fire, but are actually elementals so wield their power from any specific element. However, for an unknown reason, the other elementals other than fire have nearly all died out. It is believed this is because a great fire consumed all of Rivian (the continent Lilett and my other characters live in) thousands of years ago, and only the Fire Drakares survived. Unlike the common legends of the Pheonix, Drakares are not reborn in their ashes. Most are mortal. Or at least, although it is a great rarity, some are lucky enough to be granted with immortality and are reborn when they die, just like the legends of the Phoenix tell. Lilett is one of those lucky few.
Lilett was born a Fire Drakares, in the snowy kingdoms in northern Rivian. She was born into a small clan called the Pyrspiro, which is translated into The Flame Breathers. The members of the Pyrspiro clan are typically either Snowy Owl, Great horned, or Gryfalcon, however they are not all blood related. This is because the hatching of a Drakares does not always have to come from two Drakares parents, but can come from two normal parents. The chicks are often found and rescued because they often accidentally set fire to their nests or are abandoned by their parents due to their odd appearance. Like many others, Lilett was abandoned at a very young age by her parents due to her striking plumage of gold and reds. She was found and rescued by Milof, an elder of the clan, who since then has acted as her surrogate father.
So what can a Ice Drakares actually do? Lilett can freeze water, therefore can create ice using the water molecules from the air or a nearby water source as well as manipulate it. Usually it takes years of practice to masterfully control their element but Lilett took to hers as soon as she was transformed by the comet. No one really knows why or how this is even possible, it is simply so.
The layout, coding, and all the art work was made by me, unless credited otherwise to their respectable artists who have drawn Lilett for me. The headers at the top of each page were drawn and made by me, however the vines for the navigation (the ones at the bottom of each page) were resourced from Details and edited by me, the link is to your right.
Thanks so much for visiting!
