'Riran, Compassion of the Sacred Prayer'

Author Comments

"Riran found the dark corridors of Seadren Cathedral comforting, she lived there raised as a 'Priestess of the Sacred Prayer' since childhood. The prayer was meant to purify the soul before God in preparation for its departure to the next life. She cared deeply for the souls of the dead, and often recited the ritual over the cold embalmed bodies hidden deep below the Cathedral which were awaiting their ornate burials. Only the wealthy or noble could afford proper burial rituals within Seadren. Though she loved her life as a priestess, Riran's heart sorrowed for those dead outside the city, warriors of old in the battlegrounds and ruins that littered the hills surrounding the city. She left her life of comfort and routine in the cathedral to begin searching for the remains of those who hadn't been blessed after death, leaving ritual daggers as grave markers and preforming the Sacred Prayer over those dead she happened across. She often found treasures in the ruins she explored, and acquired a taste for personal decoration, which was not permitted within the church. She rarely happened across anyone living, meaning the only audience for her beauty were the bones she came across."

Reviews


It always seems those with a high call on there lives are left alone. No matter what sect or creed they hold, there is this pull toward a stand-alone.
