Character Diaries: Alvaj - Season 1 - Entry 011
Updated: Jul 24
The Cycle of Yagra, 22nd cycle of the Month of the Great Sea, 1932 years after Creation / Sunday, 1st of February 6099
Today was a good day. I spent it in the HVRP just as planned and lived the Athakarin life for a day without all the nasty bits such as the discrimination of women. For the first half of the day, I practiced my medicine man skills, and then the second half of the day I went on a hunt. It was good to feel the Ijix Bow in my hand, and the Kyati Sword at my side.
I paid extra to have a cellular replicator installed into the HVRP that allowed the meat that was hunted for to be real and not just holographic. After all this, I’ve officially decided I’m going to be living the Athakarin way from now on. I’ve reprogrammed my quarters to be an Athakarin hut, and replaced my bed with a pile of pillows and a hearth. I also have a small kitchen where I am cooking traditional Athakarin meals.
Sure, I’m human genetically and physically. But in my heart, I’ve decided I’m Athakarin. Alvaj is far more who I am than Allan Ali. Avala made me realize that when she called me Alvaj instead of Allan. It made me realize that my entire teenage years were spent with me as an Athakarin. I became an adult not as a human but as an Athakarin. Now, I’m realizing the life of a human is not for me.
I enjoy the taste of real Athakarin food compared to the replicated stuff which tastes fake. I prefer the feeling of a large pile of pillows under me while I sleep with furs overtop of me to keep me warm. I prefer the rugged and untidy clothing of the Athakarins of Childya Valley compared to the form fitting white uniforms that the EIS makes me wear. In truth, I am not only human, I’m Athakarin. I identify as an Athakarin now. I’ve already told the Adjutant to log the name Alvaj as no longer a code name, but a secondary given name for me. Alvaj son of Scyvaj. Tomorrow though I am returning to work, though I refuse to wear those horrendous uniforms any longer. I hate them!
~ Allan Ali / Alvaj son of Scyvaj – Rank A Agent of the EIS
