Dreams of the Ancients, Tablet I

Dreams of the Ancients, Tablet I, by the Ancient Priest.

The Great Warrior. The first among our kind to shoulder that duty, walking the path with courage and strength. To honour all that he achieved, there was always to be a Warrior among our ranks. In times of peace, whoever was Warrior trained others to track, to hunt and to fight. They remained watchful, for peace is a flighty creature, and startles easily. In times of war, the Warrior would advise our leaders in matters of tactics and strategy. If a new threat appeared, they would be the first to face it in battle. Not all of our Warriors were worthy of respect. The one who fled to the Sea Queen's arms, and who caused so much pain for our people, died a traitor’s death. Belle speaks of those with a desire to learn – learn of our past, and of our legends. While I await her arrival, I shall indulge her, and carve these stories into stone...
