On swift wings I fly, through a distant and uncharted sky. Over mountain crag and forest old, to guard my hoard of hidden gold. Call out my name, I answer with a jet of flame. "If you be friend then enter my lair, if you be foe then do not dare."
"Time was once a blessing, but long journeys are made longer when alone within.
Take spirit from the long ago, but do not dwell in lands no longer yours.
Be certain in need, and the path will emerge to a home tomorrow and time will again be the joy it once was."
"Seeking to aid everyone that suffers in the world will only weaken yourself and them. It is the internal struggles, when fought and won on their own, that yield the strongest rewards. To care for others, one must dispense with pity and sacrifice and recognize the value in letting them fight their own battles. And when they triumph, they will be even stronger for the victory."
"A cultures teachings and most importantly the nature of its people achieve definition in conflict. They find themselves or find themselves lacking"
"Tell me what is your greatest strength, so I can undermine you. Tell me what you fear, so I know what I must force you to face. Tell me what you cherish most, so I know what to take from you. Tell me what you crave, so I can deny you."
"If you are to truly understand something, then you need to know the contrast and not adherence to a single side of it."
"Die and be free of pain
Or live and fight your sorrow"
I've been around the world
I've seen a million things
I've fought in countless wars
I've dined with many kings.
I've seen the northern lights
I've counted all the stars
Been in 'n' out of Saturn's rings
And started life on Mars.
I'm fluent in every language
I've tasted each cuisine
I've stayed in every palace
And lived what people dream
I was there when it began
And I know when it will end
My only enemy is man,
Yet you are still my dearest friend.
I invented evolution
I gave you your first breath
I was there at your conception
And I'll be there at the time of death.
I have no grand past that ties in with history. I am not the child of two great beings. I am no ruler nor deity or master. I simply am what I am and live the way I want to. What I am is two halves, the blurring of two species. My mother was a dragon who took on the form of a human and wed a man in a distant land. I was the result of their joining, a freak to my human bloodline and an abomination to my dragon kin. Unable to cope with what my mother and I were my father left us, ran and never looked back.
My mother returned to her homelands where she would raise me to a young adolescent age. One night another dragon would find us, a painful memory from my mothers past who would kill her out of revenge for abandoning him as an egg. By her death I survived as she fought to keep me hidden. After that night I would be on my own having to survive on natural base instincts.
I was later taken in by elves having stumbled upon their forest. For once in my life, aside from my mother, I was accepted by someone. I was fed and sheltered, taught in swordsmanship, archery, and magic. It was on the onset of adulthood that I left my caretakers and set off to live my life.
From then to present time I have been a mercenary of sorts, a sword for hire. While this is hardly a profession and I do not advertise myself as one I have found myself in the same position often. I do not lead I follow. I am warrior and guardian. Fame and fortune to not matter to me I simply do what is right, that can often be debated however.
In my travels I encountered someone who I would eventually share the majority of my life with. A creature as magnificent as she was fierce; she would try to kill me while in a feral state of mind. The dragon Kasatka would become my mate once I aided her in regaining her senses and it was with her that we would weave our stories together traveling far and wide.
One must realize the magnitude of this feat however as well as the absurdity it entailed. For me, a half-breed, to be accepted as a mate to a full-blood was unheard of and would have no doubt been looked down upon by the elders of that era. Whatever higher power there may be though made such a union possible and our adventures are too numerous to retell. One chapter though entailed both great joy and later great sorrow.
Humanity has its beauties, but beneath the surface, holds such wretched monsters that even the true beasts of the night would feel fear from. They have such a side to them that holds no mercy or recourse to their derangement, and their cruelty can fall far beyond even the most darkest of fallen.
So one could say that I am familiar, in the ways of those vermin.
I am Xiol Saktara. A pleasure to make your acquaintance. Welcome to the twisted carnival of mayhem and misery. From the cesspools of rotten cities to the underbellies of nightlife only the most depraved can find. Find refuge in the sinners and the unwanted, and elevate your senses with the stories yet to be told. Like a needle to the arm, these drugs are sure to satisfy, if only for a little while.
