The March of Ages
Before the war, Serafina and Eliah chose a married life together in Leviathan and had a son named Bael. Soon after Eliah returned home from the war, tragedy struck. Serafina awoke one night to their home ablaze. She desperately looked for Eliah and Bael but could not find them before someone pulled her out of the fire. Strangely, she noticed that she had not been burned by the fire. The next morning there was nothing left but ashes and no way of distinguishing any remains.
In the following months Serafina turned to her friend, Bruinen, for comfort and companionship. She felt her power awaken and kept it a secret out of fear that she had been responsible for the fire that killed her husband and son.
At this time, Cyth was gathering humans together and many people were leaving Leviathan. Feeling as if she were a danger to others, Serafina stayed behind. Bruinen remained with her.
For several years she learned to control her magic in secrecy, still keeping it from Bruinen. He tried many times to convince her to rejoin the other humans but she refused. Eventually, Bruinen left Serafina. He told her that he wished to be around others and that he could no longer live their solitary life. People were moving to Finger Falls and he was going to join them. Bruinen expressed his regret and told Serafina to find him again if she ever made peace with Eliah and Bael’s deaths.
Once Eldeth’s Farm was cleared out by most humans, Serafina ventured forth. She felt in control of her abilities and thought that the calm and peaceful Dolgari would simmer the flames within her.
Serafina decided to rejoin human society and met up with Elrathia King and Stangil Drakebane at Fire Drake Mountain. In their initial travels together, they encountered Cernunnos, who attacked and nearly killed Serafina.
A brief time spent in Kuskarosa lead to information from Leopa surfacing that changed her guilt about the death of her family and ignited a search for the truth. Reikasha’s inspection of her tattoo, swearing her to Somnambuliss, also revealed some new and mysterious information.
Serafina returned from the mission to Shaeth and Fey’oth a changed woman. She felt more confident in herself and her powers. She discovered the truth behind the tragic deaths of her husband and son. She made peace with the past and decided to live her life in the present… with Belaric. Serafina even decided to look out for young Sosyth Toth-Iluith and take her under her wing.
