What secrets are hidden in darkness-blighted woods of the Valley? Why do people call en'hi "black fairies" and why does fear sometimes grant salvation? This story doesn't have any answers. There is only terror plaguing the one who has managed to leave the darkest thicket, yet has lost there his soul and his heart.

Across the span of the Guardians' existences their bodies undergo the repeating cycle of stages: blooming, tranquility and withering. The process is repetitive and self-sustaining thanks to the darkness with which the Guardians have forged an alliance. Without its interference their shells start to desiccate after the stage of withering and eventually cease to be. That was the bane plaguing the elthear after the Divide in the beginning of the new age. After an arduous set of tests by trial and error they've managed to find a way of prolonging their bodies' existence, yet by that time there were only six of them left out of hundreds.

I'm reminding that you have 3 days to become my patron and get a password(for next month) to the secret place with earlier pages and hidden sketches ;) Don't lose a chance!

So, it's time for me to tell the tale of local powers that be - The Guardians of the Forest.

They've managed to keep minds, memories, faces and wisps of hair as the only remnants of immortal bodies of the Elthear race they once possessed. Everything else got irrevocably changed during the Divide. Their mouths never move, expressions never change. In their current state they can only articulate with their eyes. Guardians never use verbal speech and communicate with the darkness, the Hunters and one another via telepathy and mind control.

As the following few pages will be devoid of spoken words, I'll be the one to chat, commenting on everything with tidbits of lore and explaining the current goings-on.

Undoubtedly, the one who forewarned is forearmed. Yet in the tale there was no mention of a herb that robs one of wit and will.....

P.s. I'll come back to the hunters and their strange behaviour in extra pages after the end of this chapter.

In for a Surprise
...And when he gets home it's to find out 100 years have passed and all that he knew and loved is gone. I can so see that happening.

Ooooh my goodness your art is amazing!
I haven't yet read everything but I will very soon.
I just stumbled upon this little gem just now and I'm smitten with your art.
The coloring, character design and the sheer amount of details in every single panel are breathtaking.
Every page is made with so much love and care, it's absolutely magnificent!
Thank you for your hard work <3

@Lajoy1: No on both questions x)
First of all because ethear and achtear were two different species and couldn't have children in between-species pairs. The same thing works for their ancestors - en'hi, ar'the, ad'es and kavs(humans). They're so physically different that having mixed offspring is absolutely impossible for them.

As for romantic relations between ar'the and kavs it's impossible too. Mainly because of the distance between them, very different mentality, culture and ideals of beauty.
But some fallings in love or infatuations to ar'the are possible from kavs' side. There will be some funny situations in comic when another kavin would try to flirt with Amarandol... xD

Relationships
What do the En'hi and Ar'the think of humans? Have there even been any romantic relationships between the Ar'the and humans that produced children? I have read your Book of Exodus story, update more soon.

Kavs (sing. kav(male), kavin(female) make the majority of the Yellow Vale's populace. They are descendants of achtear whose blood got mixed with other natives of the Vale over time.
Specific traits: short stature, mostly blond/ashen hair color, blue/yellow eye color. Furthermore, due to traces of tear blood kavs tend to last twice the lifespan of the man of Earth's Middle Ages. As an example, 20 years of kav's age would be roughly equal to 13-15 years of Earthly human.
There's no need in more info concerning them at the moment because they are secondary characters in this chapter, but the next two chapters will explore their society in much more depth.
