Telina Vass, Sorceress of Sapphire.

My people told me that I was formed from the clay of the earth, dried by the air, shaped by water and baptised by fire.  The truth I may never know for I never knew another like me and the natives of Sapphire are a superstitious primitive lot.  They are of course my superstitious, primitive lot.  They feared and worshiped me and for a millennia before I thought that there must be more to existence, if I truly was the Witch goddess of this world that is.

It is true that I am able to control near any spell and drive fear into the heart of any creature but I was always catching glimpses of something else.  Some unknown power that eluded me at critical moments that could truly make me the most powerful being known.  I studied hard, leaving the swamp and moving in to the newly formed villages. So much life and such a sad end the villagers had.  But I needed my privacy to study and it was here that I found the minor secret of the doors.  I could leave and travel the Grand Stair and that is exactly what I did.  I would find someone that knew more of these fleeting dalliances with a power I could not grasp.

My travels on the stair have been long and eventful.  I have heard of this Vala who others claim to rule over us.  I am happy to seek out others like Fambol who believe her rule nothing but an unwanted charade.  I do this for Fambol as he spoke with me at length and told me of the powers that I had been seeking.  Umbra and Eidolon.  Order and Decay.  A cycle that all are entwined within and none escape, not even the Witch Goddess of Sapphire.  He could not teach it to me though as he only knew of its names and their effect so I travelled more, finding my Vonelo.  Who knew that when I started this journey my tutor would also become my lover.

I am now in control of the Eidolon and seek now to further my power and complete the cycle within myself.  Mastering Umbra as well is a mythical task indeed.  It is lucky I was born a goddess…
