We go back, before the beginning… to the day Ralael was born.
In the hometown of the half-elves called Hybrids, up in the northern forests, each new day is a struggle. They can count on none but themselves. They often turn a blind eye to what happens around them, but not always: sometimes they hear of humans of the warpath, raiding the elven border.
Those rumours they cannot ignore. After all, those incursions are the reasons some of them were born. When they can, they try to help. Four seasons past, Dramon and a few other warriors were sent ahead of time to one of these settlements: they hoped they could stop the humans.
They were too late then, and Dramon feels like he’s too late now…

Dramon took a deep breath, still seeing nothing but confusion and emptiness in the elf's gaze. ‘No,’ he whispered. ‘Does she… Does she even see me?’
‘I don't know,’ Relriel said, coming up to his side. ‘She knew who you were when you brought her here and she could make out who I was until a few hours ago, but not anymore.’
‘Why is she always blinking?’
‘The headache. The same headache she's had since yesterday, only now it's much worse. She doesn't talk now, but when she could that was all she spoke about. The pain in the head.’
‘And the child?’
