"Heaven hath no rage like love turned to hatred,

Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorned".

William Congreve - 1697

A tale about two girls

Born the same day in the empire.

One in the palace, the other

on the desolate Isle of Sorrow.

One named Tanis.

Her mother was the Queen of Abelar.

The other called Kara.

Her mother was a vampire demon.

Tanis was born a Princess with privilege.

Kara was orphaned and became a servant slave.

Different mothers, but sired the same father.

Therein lies the tragic seed of these 24 tales.

Two girls on a dark quest.

Haunted by visions of their destiny.

Struggling to control urges.

A child of light...

A creature of darkness...

This tale begins with Tanis'

dark vision of the near future.

So, where is this renowned father?

Will father show his face to you, sir?

A shallow womanizer fashions

himself a dashing wit.

Perhaps he cannot hear

your whimpering, sir.

Pathetic palter.

"Tales Of An Ancient Empire"

First Tale

"Resurrection Of Sin"

Three Weeks Earlier

Isle Of Sorrow

off the coast of Abelar

Very quick.


Some other dog beat us

to the treasure.

Hear that?

No, please.


I will serve you.

Abelar, does it still exist?


Ah, yes.

Ruled by a queen, Eldoria.

She has passed on.

Her eldest... eldest child Ma'at

is queen now.


I won't harm the queen,

but I will make you do

with her seed.

Not that it matters now.

I... I was wondering...

- how... how your enemies...

- To dust.

That will sting.

And now?

And now,

say, "l won't feel anything

except a little sting".

Second Tale

"Call Of Destiny"

The Kingdom Of Abelar



Are you listening to me?

- Sister.

- It is upon us, your dream.

It's happening.

After all of these years, the Sorceress

has somehow returned from the dead.


Please don't go.

Go, Lenor.

Please, find safety.

All of you leave at once.

I will alert the General,

Your Highness.

And we must find he

who saved us before.

The Mercenary?

Your father.

But, our father is dead.

He died saving Abelar

from the Sorceress.

Your father is not mine.

I was sired by the king but...


you were by this mercenary.

Mother said you were

the king's child to protect you.

You must leave the past behind.

Our kingdom needs us now.

Kingdom Bush is not my father?

No, but he who is lives.

If we so be separated

mother said this will lead you to him.

With this token, he will know you

and you shall know him.

And this will help you

to understand the sorcery.

My Queen.

They are within the palace,

Your Majesty.

You must come now.

You have to go.

No, come with us.

My Queen,

you both have a long time

to struggle.

I've trained you well,

Your Highness.

You are ready for what comes.


Third Tale


We can make sure of your safety

if you follow this hall.

It will lead you out of the palace.

But what about you?

My duty is to remain here, Kara.


If you stay, then so will I.

You can do nothing more here,


The Royals will scheme

to save their skins.

We will be left to fend for ourselves

and not always with the truth.

They have no regard for us.

But I am sworn to...

You have sworn to love me, Dernier

or was that just to weaken my will.

I love you.

Then save us my love.

- I must kill the infected.

- Leave her. She's a friend.

It's your wish.

Fourth Tale

"Crossing Thresholds"

There, it leads to a quay

where our boat waits.

- It will take you to Durris.

- Durris?

An outlaw city?

If he still lives the people

there will know his whereabouts.


I'm fine.
