As I am, so shall I always be...
A Chronological History
The (real time) Life of Saria
This Saria was a tall blonde with crystal blue eyes and (of course) Ruathan blood. In the tradition of Moreta and Lessa, she could communicate with all dragons. It was my fantasy and I wanted it all. I even created a lover for her in the image of a friend. The man's name was D'rall and this character carried over into the next segment of Saria's evolution.
This "book" of her life was begun on January 1, 1994 and finished that April. Saria was born again that summer, this time into the body of an elf in the world of Earthdawn.
This Saria was tall with black hair. She had a streak of silver hair behind her left ear. She is both a bard and a wizard. In accordance with elven tradition, she must choose her adult name and that name will be Saria Lilim Antares.
Saria - Queen Rider
Saria was born to traditional parents. They frowned on her desire to sing and to write songs - even though Menolly made a wonderful harper, and she was a girl, too. They disapproved even more of her desire to ride a dragon. Saria knew the history of her bloodline, and even though it had been diluted, the Ruathan blood ran strong in her. She dedicated herself to getting out of that Hold and finding her dreams.
She was chosen to be a candidate for a hatching and stood fearlessly as Rindeth was hatched. Lessa watched her and was reminded of herself all those years ago. Saria was trained to ride and to fight thread. During those years, she fell in love with F'lessan (this is a very long story). After a strong and steady relationship, these two found themselves in charge of a weyr on the southern continent. One of the new riders was named D'rall and his bronze dragon was Eroth. Eroth was strong and was the sure bet for the next mating flight of Rindeth. F'lessan had a terrible accident, and died as a result. D'rall became the Weyr Leader. Love blossomed between them and life went on.
I know her story sounds perfect, but it wasn't. She had to overcome many obstacles which I haven't mentioned. Needless to say, she was the beginning of the strong woman I want to become.
Saria the Goddess
Saria - Troubador
Saria has since married the love of her life, a Blood Elf named Arilou, who is an Elementalist and Archer. Torian, at the same wedding ceremony, married Raven, the T'skrang Sky Raider and Weaponsmith. These four are very rarely found apart.
