Lady Lilit Atmora, daughter of the Lady Jessa and His Eminence Count Talis Atmora, of Dinmoro in the Floating Land of Xelos, had always been a strange child. From the time she began to speak, it was plain that she possessed strange and unearthly gifts. She often displayed knowledge beyond her years and seemed to know the deepest, darkest secrets of those around her. She was frequently witnessed in tense conversation with what appeared to be empty rooms. Her manner was so disconcerting that her father found himself unable to retain servants to attend to her.
Unlike most of his contemporaries, Count Talis did not employ a court sorceror. He was a superstitious man, distrustful of spirits and sorcery. His daughter’s talents left him deeply troubled, yet Lilit was an only child and he had no other heir. His beloved wife was frail and sickly and nearing the end of her child-bearing years. Lilit was her third and only surviving child and there seemed little hope of the Countess ever bearing a son. Knowing the danger posed by a gift left untutored, the Count was left at last with no other option. He sent to a neighboring island for a court sorceror to instruct his young daughter.
The girl learned quickly, displaying an obsession for arcane secrets and ruthlessness in the pursuit of hidden knowledge. She would often spy on her father’s secret counsels and knew all of the hidden ways of the castle. Her tutor was occasionally horrified by her private experiments, and dark rumors circulated among the folk of the castle as local pets and livestock mysteriously disappeared.
In Lilit’s 12th year, her mother was again taken with child. This child, a son, survived and to his great joy, Lord Talis had his heir. When, at fourteen, having grown bored with the meager knowledge of her tutor and hungering for new and darker secrets, Lilit stowed away on a merchant vessel to dark and storm-wracked Tab-Taban, her lord father mustered only a short and perfunctory investigation before giving up the search and breathing a sigh of relief at his good fortune.
The Floating Lands of Tab-Taban circled the Ostward Vortex in the southern reaches of the Ostward Sea, slumbering in the decadent wealth of an ancient and once-great empire. It was a land of evil priesthoods and vast, mouldering libraries full of dark secrets long forgotten by the inhabitants of the brighter realms of Aurum. The hints Lilit found in these decaying vaults of an imminent apocalypse and a great power to be held by the one who possessed the proper knowledge sparked an unholy ambition in the young girl.
This ambition finally led her back north, in the hope of procuring a ship and a crew with which to continue her search for the means by which this impending doom might be turned to her advantage. It was Sanga’s unwitting destiny to provide her with the ship and crew, as well as a significant head start on her search.
