The Reflection (Character Information)
Name: Kami Sighs
Leviathan Smiles (Introduction)
My tale begins and ends before it is ever spoken.
During the time of unnumbered tears I said goodbye to my childhood. In the Paris of the West my parents stepped into the world beyond with lips made of ash and tongues made of steel. In the shadow of the Empire my uncle and grandmother raised me, with wings of paper and fingers of fire. And it was there that I left behind my rage and ignorance and traveled East, deep into the land forgotten by time, in search of answers that I already carried with me. In this, time is a folding circle, ever beginning and ending, repeating and bleeding. It is a wonder we have not bled to death, leaving behind such excellent cadavers.
In the mountains that touch the sky, educated by my elders, I embraced the Blood Moon within me. I learned to harness Luna's warmth. I dedicated myself to balance, and kailindo, and the perfect melding of salt and soul. Place and repeat. Place and repeat. Moving with and without until they are one in the same, without time or meaning. All for the purpose of walking on scars, pledged to stand against the darkness and return it to safe keeping. What began as soft clay was molded into hardened iron. Still as stone and bending like a reed, ever observing with mirrored eyes. Patient defender. Brutal educator. Imperfect warrior. Hunter of serpents, seeker of secrets and friend of fathers.
Finally, after thirty six seasons, I left during the Hour of the Horse, to find that which was finding me. Gliding across snow in the shadow of Khans. Sleeping with ghosts under the stars of Czars. Swimming through bloody swarms in streets of soot. Speaking with northern Gods and bathing in the rivers of my ancestors. Only to find and befriend dread wolves, pledged to repay their strength and protect their pups.
I ventured from there to the great dream and nightmare, ever looking back, defending those souls whom Chimera presented to me as the three faced wonder that she is. Noble monster. Monstrous merciful. Twisted tangent. Hero and bitch and enigma. All one in the same and not at all ever. Kissing and starving, blessing and bleeding. It is, once again, a miracle that we are even still here to speak of it.
Stop. Listen to the echo of my past catching up with us. Sins forgotten now found, pains inflicted now healed, and memories that have yet to be made.'
Take my hand. I will show you how.
