Synopsis of the story ‘The Healer’
Liriessa Blyritha is a twenty three year old, silver-haired girl from an obscure village in Vandon. Being very poor her mother could barely afford to educate her let alone send her to college to learn magic. Although magic was only practiced by the healing community, Blyritha was eager to learn it for other purposes as well. She envisioned herself as one of the future’s most-powerful people able to wield magic.
She sets off with her best friend, Myrelle, to the city where Myrelle begins her college education. Blyritha’s role is to earn and provide for the two of them while Myrelle attends college. During the course of attempting to work, Blyritha encounters a strange woman named Thlax who reveals herself variously as extremely powerful in magic and phenomenally strong in physique. Much later Liriessa realizes that she had been befriended by the second-most powerful demon from Lyper (the world of the Dead).
A disastrous storm sent by Lyther, the god of Death, renders their city unfit for living and so Blyritha and her friend plan to migrate to the neighbouring country, Urojy, to start afresh. It is now that Blyritha learns about the prophecy of ‘the person with the silver hair (like hers) who was destined to destroy Lyther, the god of Death.
With Thlax’s help she manages to set out to put her plan of killing Lyther in motion before being rescued from that demon by none other than the goddess of immortality herself, Amesia. The goddess then helps Blyritha complete that self-same plan not just to gain immortality but to rule over the kingdom of Death in place of Lyther himself.
