She was a lost one. She was a stray. She was a slave, a monster, a refuge, and now newborn babe. She was… Eira.
Her identities swirled inside herself, multiple mirrors and multiple reflections. She lifted her hand and grasped her forehead. "I am Eira. I grew up in the woods of Emyn Uial, in tents. My parents were killed by beasts in my teens. I am here now because I wanted to see the world."
Her journey begins now.
