Mrs McCarthy: Here is some excellent lore from Year 10 student James Dwyer, elaborating on the characters from some of his fantasy writing. Thanks for sharing, James!


The Enchanters of Milenia: 

In the beginning, the Gods created Milenia - a world of green and blue and beauty. It seemed in all the world that it was perfect. The gods prided themselves on their world. There was one above all else in particular who took it upon himself to destroy his family; the god of chaos and destruction... Charos. He was jealous that he had to share 'his' world with the others, and therefore, devised a plan to imprison them. He conquered them with his might, and imprisoned them deep within the world, imprisoning them in a chamber of unbreakable chains of earth and fire. It is this moment when Charos took the world for himself, covering it in a great mist of red and black, claiming Milenia as the world of Charos. 

A thousand years passed, and the Gods had regained some of their strength, but not enough to escape their prison. Instead of using the little power they had toward escaping, the Gods began to chant. They chanted in their own ancient tongues, their voices echoing from the ground, creating a great quake in the ground. From the ground of the world, the sky turned red in one single spot -  which spawned a swarm of meteorites that had a direct collision course with the world. Before impact, most of the meteorites burned up, being obliterated in a matter of seconds. 

Out of the many there were, only eight survived, and were scattered around the world. With a loud entrance onto the now frail land of Milenia, there emerged people from them, almost as if the rocky exterior was a cocoon to shield them from harm. It was here, that the Gods' greatest servants came from, the Enchanters. For many years, the eight wandered, avoiding the red mist at all costs, as they feared the way it looked. As the years went by, they had created homes for themselves, not knowing that they were destined for something more. 

For many hundreds of years they lived, and it seemed that they could not age. It was only when they obtained a great age, did each of them discover their powers of magic and enchantments. It was only when they had learned to read the stars, did they understand, coming from them many years ago. Not know where they were going, each of them journeyed far from their homes, following their gut on which direction to take. After many years, they reunited, all eight. Though they did not know each other at first, they felt like they knew each other. 

It was at this time that they received a message from the gods of their destinies, and together, they would go on to defeat Charos and banish the mist to which came of the God. His body was ripped of his soul, and his soul became trapped in a glass orb, becoming an aura of evil, never used by any of the enchanters. Once the Gods were freed from their chamber of solitude, they began work on the creation of the inhabitants of the world. All different creatures were created in the different images of the Gods. 

Humanity was created first, and soon, Centaur came to inhabit the forests, the Dwarves and Goblins would come to call the mountains their home - just to name a few. The first great city of man was named Ethilok, which resided in the country of Rethomar. The Enchanters would call this place home, protecting its citizens from harm of war. The Enchanters created their own order many years later... the Order of Ethilok.
