What does Leal want?

During the night there was a light that came from the sky. I believed at first it would lead me to what I wanted.  To what I sought to be my mission and purpose.  
In an instance he explained it to me...  I could not follow a mere light.  He told me if I ever wanted anything in this world I would have to look for the shadows.

That image inspired me to just now write this for Leal.  His characters has been one of my favorite to work with, though I know that may sound surprising when I have to work so closely with Celestria.
The "he" Leal is referring to in the passage is Esmour, his former boss, but you learn more about him later.

Who is Leal?  What brought him into the series?  Soon I'll be posting about Leal's coming into the book.

And just something that made me laugh: My friend saw my journal yesterday where I had dialog between Celestria and Leal written out.  She said, "Oh, Leal's a guy?"
Haha, nice right?  I can't blame her....I admit his name is a bit uncommon; some of the characters in Cursed with Power even make this remark.  However, I wouldn't say his name of all sounds like a woman's.
Alaire....doesn't that sound more feminine?  Yet that was a name for men back in the time period for the book.  Interesting, huh?  Eh, maybe it's just me who finds that interesting.
Enough of me rambling.  The post about Leal will be up soon; chapter seven will be finished and posted as soon as possible.
By the way, did you like the narration I had based off of Leal's character and his story?  I could do that again in the near future if you like.
"There's a lot that I want." He said. He smirked as he said it like he knew he was pushing my patience.


  1. Yes I did like the narration, and I can't wait for the post about Leal! Please post soon!

  2. Thank you; I was hoping someone would say so.
    I'm glad to hear you're so excited about it. Remind me to message Annie and Pslams when the posts go up --I thought for sure they'd be following this blog just because I made sure to mention that matters relating to Leal will be on this blog.
