Lords of Gossamer and Shadow: Delfina of Tartarus

Delfina strikes down the collaborators of Lynden City

Some of us have known the secret of the doors since we were but children.  I am one of those that was spoken to by the Lithina Monks who maintain the secrets of chaos and law as proposed to them by the Goddess Vala in Tartarus.  We are identified as the gifted children with the ability to see truth and manipulate the world around us for the word of Vala.  We are taught how to see and how to fight. We are gifted abilities and items in the name of Vala and we defend Tartarus from the darkness that would seek to destroy it.

I am a handmaiden of Vala.  I was selected especially by the teacher of the Icon as that who bears the most likeness to Vala herself, and thus am most favoured of Vala in Tartarus.  The darkness is forever seeking the doors to Tartarus and the sacred books that Vala has gifted unto us and it is I, the handmaiden who seeks this darkness out and attempts to destroy it before it even finds the doors it needs.  There can be only one handmaiden at a time and I am forever grateful that I have been selected to fulfil this holy role.

There is darkness everywhere in the heart of men and women.  Many seek to destroy our Goddess and her allies.  I find them plotting in secret worlds, building artefacts of great power to debase her.  They hide away from the light and so it is I that train to bring light to the darkness and destroy their plans.  Their power varies and at times I have barely walked away with my life.  i know my time will come where I will be destroyed, but I am a weapon, and when its edge is dulled it must be discarded for a newer and sharper alternative.  I will fade so another may succeed where I fail.

If you support this darkness, if you seek to change the ordained order, know that the next light you see may be me and I will grant you your darkness eternally.
