The Saving of Sobul - Chapter 1 - Part 1



In the forests of Montpelier, a great warrior named Colias arrived from Sobul wearing his battleshield marked in the bloodline of Avengis.  The shield had magic powers and would help protect him against man, beast and the gods.  His companion for the journey was a papilio called Indra.  Indra was a magnificent butterfly-like creature with swallow tail wings that turned into a golden ball in flight.  He had been with Colias from the beginning of time, illuminating the worlds of darkness in Sobul with his hypnotic golden beam and was fated to be his trusted guide on this path of destiny.

When Colias entered the forest, the sounds reminded him of home, wind whispering through the leaves, distant streams, insects buzzing, creatures warning each other of intrusion.  Colias made little or no sound as he followed his faithful guide, the tree bodies creaking after him, oak eyes fixed on both of them as he set about his search for the light that would save his beloved homeland of Sobul.

  2. Yeap, I kinda cheated in so far as it is an extract from a myth I did of about 30,000 words, but it suited the image, so I went for it.
