Xae’raan Thiaroe is missing! Her helmet being found on the ocean’s floor just minutes after a series of explosions and lights lit up both sky and waters.
I ventured to the beach to attend the Honor Ceremony for Alithia on Thursday. Ceremony concluded, I chose to remain on the beach to enjoy the ongoing festivities. All seemed well and I was just starting to gather my things to head back to the den when a huge shadow passed overhead At that point things started happening very fast.
A large wyvern passed directly over where I was seated on the beach. I watched it circle a spot over the reef. Then BOOM! A series of lights and explosions rent the air and seas around me. The lights and noise were intense and blinding. I fell onto the sand but when I looked up again I saw the wyvern raising into the air over the waters with a large net tangled in his talons and a wildly thrashing form inside. All this happened very quickly.. But then even while I was watching – the wyvern and it’s bundle vanished! As if never having been there at all.
I fled the area immediately but have since learned that Talisae Xae’raan has been taken! Her helmet was found on the ocean floor and I suspect that was her struggling form I saw being carried off by the wyvern. We have no idea if she is alive or dead at this point. And thus far she appears to be the only one missing. We can only hope that she still survives.
I fear that this is the work of Shalan’ti. Several of Princess Lihen’s sailors were murdered here last month. Most bodies not recovered but the signs in evidence pointed toward an aquatic attack. The normally demure princess quite angry about it. Her Vega family heritage clearly visible as she spoke on vengeance. Stormstead is in a tenuous position. Kuvari’s Deep is a powerful force which we cannot afford to antagonize. And the Shalan’ti aristocracy could make things very rough for us if we side openly with the Deepers. We will have to use both caution and discretion as we move forward. The Talisae must be found. Let us hope she is still alive and of sound mind.
