The Clouds of Darkness Have Risen
Da'h'ega-n'd, one of Zahat'n'ira's many tribes, lived a normal life. They had chosen living in the woods and their village has since then grown to considerable size. Though not being the biggest of Zahatnira's tribes, it was still really important because of its security. It was protected by both normal Zahati'i soldiers and Druids. As the only village in the woods, it was a natural shrine, a place, where the Mother Nature could contact everyone. Zahatii really believed, that one day Mother will take them to the paradise, where they don't have to work at all. But it was not all they believed about her. They prayed towards her every day to avoid any problems. Last year, the whole village almost died off and the chief of this tribe thought it's because a Zahatii forgot to pray on one day.
The forest was a defense for the village. Since it was covered with huge green leaves it was safe from air forces. Although they didn't know anything about the rest of the galaxy and their technology, they didn't know they are in a really safe location. But it didn't even matter.
Lilith, the founder of the Council of Sorcery, but definitely not the most important member of the Council, had accidentally landed near the forest where Dahega-nd stood. The founding members of the Council had had a meeting in the same forest. And Dahegans didn't even know anything about it. A young girl named @[member="Ephyt-ri of Dahega"] was doing her normal things when she finally noticed a few people standing in their forest, just talking and doing... something. She had listened to them behind a tree. Since she was a young Druid, she had been able to use an ability which protects her a bit, but she almost immediately lost control over it. She had had to run away.
But now Lilith and a few other members of the Council, @[member="Aiden Clairemont"] and @[member="Darth Arcis"], walked towards the village centre. It was located in the entrance to the village, so it wasn't exactly the most protected place of it. But the Sorcerers and the Sorceress were still pretty far away from the village and since Ephyt-ri had announced their presence, the little fighting group, which they called "The Mother's Army", were already waiting for them. But neither the nor the Councilors knew there will be some other people too who want to defend the village.
Lilith walked confidently. it was strange, that she managed to do that, because... she was just a Sorceress Potential, the lowest rank there is, and she was not very brave either. Fortunately she was accompanied by a Sith Master and a Sith Apprentice. It was like their first training, too.
A strand of hair had fallen on Lilith's face, so she raised her hand next to her face and with a gentle wave-gesture she wiped it away. Her staff was in her other hand which happened to be the left one. Lilith wasn't left-handed, but she liked holding it in her left hand, so her right hand would always be ready for something whether it will be attacking or just holding something.
"Do you think we will succeed at invading this little village?" she asked from the other Councilors while they walked.
