Glossary

Ainglean: The White Lady’s Wardens in the physical world. Oversees/assists those agents, sent by the White Lady, to carry out her mission (e.g. Haldis, Clerics, others).

Daevian: A vilest of creatures from the Shadows. They can exist in the physical world of Athule and summon other demons from the Shadows. A primary agent of the Dark Lord, the Olcas Mogwai.

Haldis:  Shield (a Knight) of the Goddess. The Goddess’ Weapons.

il-fennore: The Spirit realm of the White (Burning) Lady where Spirits go when the Goddess’ essence leaves a body (human, Elf, other). It is also the name of the magic that is created by reaching into the Goddess’ world and utilizing the Spirit creatures to manipulate objects in the physical world.

Mind-Bridge: A Mind-bridge conveys actual words, but even more than that. Along with the words are images and emotions, far clearer than a Spirit-link, that add meaning. At the extreme, a few beings can use the Mind-bridge to actually influence the thoughts of another being, though it requires a lot of energy and can only be done with certain people—generally ones who are already inclined to be swayed.

Protector: Warrior that is sworn, to the White Lady, to protect a specific Being.

Sending: This is what it is called when someone sends images, words, etc. across a Mind-bridge or impressions across a Spirit-link.

Sensitives: A Sensitive is sensitive when connections are made to the il fennore, and also when a Sending is made.  The Sensitive can feel the connections and in the case of a Spirit-link or Mind-bridge, those involved in the connection. So a Sensitive could tell when a particular Elf was in a Spirit-link with a specific Hukka. The Sensitive can feel the emotions and to a certain degree what someone is thinking, by inference, but can’t read someone’s mind.  Sensitives can Spirit-link their thoughts with another Sensitive, but not share thoughts—sometimes images, but mostly emotions.

Sensing: The ability to feel something about someone—similar to Spirit-link, but more of a passive process. This is what a Sensitive can do, but also a Haldis, Skinshifter, Lor, and a few others.

Shadows: Domain of the Dark Lord, the Great Evil called the Olcas Mogwai. It is where evil Spirits dwell. A viler a Spirit, the deeper it sinks into the Shadows—the most depraved and heinous of these demons exist at the lowest, seventh level, of the Shadows.

Skin-Shifter: Small human form that can change into a Hukka (extremely large wolf-like creature).

Spirit-link: The Spirit-link provides a means for occasionally transmitting images and some feelings to a degree, which our Spirit tries to interpret. With beings like Kata-henis or Borlenders, we fill in much of what is communicated to create words that make sense to us. Think of it as riding along the edge of the il fennore and then talking Spirit-to-Spirit with another intelligent creature that has the native ability to make the connection. Elfs, Hukkas, Kata-henis, and a few other creatures can do this. Only a few humans can and most animals cannot.
