Emilia Thorngarden

A long, long time ago, there was a great war between the shining forces of Creation and the bleak and horrible forces of Emptiness. It was a war waged on many fronts, a war waged with overt battles and with secret schemes.

Once, the forces of Emptiness captured a bright light, a shining knight of Creation. And they whispered strange blasphemous words to her, and broke her spirit, and when they sent her back to Creation everybody thought that she had escaped, and there was celebration.

And her name, from then on, was Dahlia Thorn.

And for many years she pretended to work for Creation, all while she was secretly hoping and working for the triumph of Emptiness and dissolution.

But eventually a stern and suspicious General of creation saw through Dahlia's lies, and in a rage at her betrayal, he tore her apart, scattering all the lies she told to the four winds, ripping and destroying and looking to find the secret truth that she kept in her heart. And when he was done, and she was dead and broken, that truth stood revealed to the world.

And that truth was you, Emilia Thorngarden.

And what does that mean? Why was the secret emptiness in her heart a child? Why did that cruel general leave you alive? Why do you remember an idyllic childhood with your mother in her endless gardens when you were born at the exact moment she died?

Your mother was made from ideas, ideas about what the world should be. Perhaps if you find those ideas, you'll find your mother, and be able to ask her…

Whatever it is that you need to ask.

Basic Quest 0/9 XP

I'm not really here (Struggle)

Really, you want to connect to people, but… they're so mysterious, so empty, so fragile. In social situations you can hold up a sign that says

This means a lot to me!

But some buried part of you is thinking

Why doesn't this mean more to me?
