I’m still reading over what I’ve written for Amachi’s story and would like to share some of it with you today.
Amachi is a zi’Den warrior. She is a Derjjuwa, perhaps one of the last if not the last. Below is a little information about these great warriors.
The Derjjuwa (derg-wah)
For centuries, The Derjjuwa were the protectors of the zi’Den race. They were the soldiers, warriors. In the past, before their fall, the Derjjuwa warriors were unmatched in skill, strength, and intelligence. They were fearless masters of the body, mind, and soul. They honed their skills and abilities at three sacred temples: The Temple of Hand Arts, The Temple of Weapon Arts, and The Temple of Power Arts. Males and Females were treated equally, but trained separately.
The Derjjuwa Arts
The Drjjwa Arts were a collection of hand to hand combat styles, weapon styles, and special abilities that the enlightened zi’Den Ancients created long ago to protect their people. There were 42 Arts in all, 9 Hand Arts, 9 Weapon Arts, and 24 Special Abilities connected to the Body, Mind, and Soul. These 42 arts were split between Female (mind), Neutral(soul), and Male(body) to make a 14 Art skill set for each branch. Though most arts were considered inherently male or female, the genders could still crossover and learn the arts of the other.
The Time Of Peril
Generations ago, Emperor Xiegiss crossed the sea and in search of conquest, wielding a weapon the Derjjuwa had never seen before. A weapon they were not prepared to face. Thus began the fall of the Derjjuwa and the oppression of the zi’Den people. The time of peril.
With all this talk of Amachi and the plight, of her people, I figured I’d introduce you to her. Below is a link to the prologue of her story.
Why not take a look and tell me what you think, eh?
