- Character: Aya
- From Keepers of the Kingdom Chronicles
Aya grew up with her fellow people, the Elementals, her entire life. She never ventured from the Elemental Island and was never encouraged to. As a young girl, she was predetermine to be a water reader and nothing else. You were not given a choice of the element you were follow or the choice to rewrite it. Never was a Elemental aloud to try to rewrite a elements actions. To do so was a crime and the punishment was eternal imprisonment.
Aya enjoyed her teachings of reading water and what it had to say. When taught correctly, an Elemental could tell you what had been in the water and when. They could also tell you of the past. Each water cell hold its peice of history and its own memories, but only the Elders had that kind of wisdom and ability.
As Aya got older, she began to play with rewriting her element. She did it in Secret with her friend Lunna Wind, the high Elders great grand daughter. Aya and Lunna would read the way their elements would move and then rewrite then to move the way they wanted them to. Aya would pull moisture from the plants, killing small weeds in the process, into a small ball of water. Lunna would take a small bit a fire from a candle. Lunna would set a peice of clothe on fire and Aya would put it out with her small water ball. They would pratice daily without being caught, but as they got older, they got braver. One day they ventured out to the coast, where people seldom went, and decided to do the biggest test yet. Lunna had brought a small fire bundle with only a coal burning inside and Aya would use the sea.
Lunna laid her fire bunddle down thought hard on the coal and slowly grew it to engulf the bundle and a nearby row boat. Aya brought forth the water from the sea and brought a wave crashing down on the vessel. Only Lunna lost her control of the fire and the water did not put it out. Lunna screamed fire shot off onto the shore, catching the trees on fire. The girls began to panic when Ryder came walking onto the shore.
That was when Ryder and Aya first met and he seen from her the same spark he seen in the Sentinels. From there he followed from Aya and what she had learned from the water element. As for the fire on the beach. Ryder helped them put the fire out and helped Aya hone her water ability. Lunna hid from her friend and from the villiage. She was never seen or heard from after leaving the beach that. day.
Aya later left with Ryder and denied the ways she had been raised and chose to go her own way. Aya would later become one of the most powerful Sentinels ever known.
