Character Diaries: Alvaj - Season 1 - Entry 039
Just a word of warning before today's entry. Since I have just this week introduced both the Syliva, and the Echarikith Diary series for Book 1 of the Avala: Spirits of the Mindscapes Series, I thought it would be a good idea to catch up those two series to the chronological point that the Alvaj Diary series is at. Thus, since today ends chapter 2 of the Alvaj Diary series, I will leave it be at this point until September 13th at which point I will start chapter 3 for the Alvaj Diary series, with Entry 040. Now without further ado, here is today's entry.
The Cycle of Zayil, 5th cycle of the Month of the Darkness, 1932 years after Creation / Sunday, 1st of March 6099
I’m still a bit embarrassed about my behavior and paranoia over the last few weeks. It got really out of hand. The ghost of my sister however is still there. I can see her out of the corner of my eyes, and occasionally she’s standing there in full view. She rarely interacts with me, but she’s there. I didn’t discuss this with Sylvia. There are some things that she just doesn’t need to know of. This is one of them.
Today, Lorca stopped by again. This time I cooperated with him. He explained that he knew my parents, and that he knows I’m seeing ghosts. He claims that seeing ghosts isn’t a problem, its actually a thing that happens to some people. He didn’t go into it, but once I admitted that I was seeing ghosts he explained this is a symptom of what the Black Circle calls ‘magic’, which the Black Circle has the duty of keeping out of the wrong hands, i.e. the Niir Syndicate or the Yajixa. This magic, only exists in humans and human descendant races such as the Athakarins, Evraibra, Fainavbra, and Zari.
However, there is absolutely no reason to induct me into the black circle, as they normally do with people with magic, since I am already in service of the EIS, and therefore not likely to fall into the wrong hands. He claims though that the Black Circle will be keeping an eye on my development.
According to him, most people with magic never fully awaken to active use of the power, and instead simply show symptoms of it. This has been the case for the majority of human history, and it was only during the end of World War III that people really stated awakening any further. It was shortly after this that the Black Circle, known then as the “Wings of the Dark Angel” was formed by the Seraphim Group, which later became the Illusive Group. The Illusive group has since left the Black Circle, but they were still its founders.
He left me with a dire warning though, I am to not tell anyone, even Commander Sylvia of my magical potential. If the Yajixa were to find out about this magic, they already have the Evraibra, Fainavbra, and Athakarins on their side, and could find a way to unlock their magical capabilities to use against us. And if the criminal syndicate of the Niir, which is comprised of 40% human and human descendant races, get their hands on this, there would be no stopping them. That’s okay though, I’m a spy, keeping secrets out of enemy hands is my job.
