Tzera Ben L’Hal
The star was dead, and it was the Lendari who killed it. Keeping that blame a secret gave no peace to the people cast adrift in the dark void upon their planet’s corpse, floating further and further from their home galaxy with every cycle. No ghosts lingered on the surface anymore. All the air, forests, and seas had burned away long ago, reduced to dust and data that now wasted in the cold. Few held any memory of the time before. In their colossal underground cities they toiled away to maintain their existence, slumbering for millennia when resources ran thin. All the while desperately clinging to the dream that one day, they would birth a new star and revive their world. This was the planet Tzera called home. Each day awake filled with stagnant air, stale food, unfulfilling work, and strangers. With the only hope lingering on the other side of sleep.
~Book 1: Wake At Dawn
ProloguePersonality: Tzera is rather observant though she doesn't often voice these out loud. Internalized thinker, rather unsure of herself, even more so after reaching the new world. Has little experience with making her own decisions and often relies on others to instruct her. However, this does not prevent her from voicing her desires when she really wants something. Self-conscious about her weight and inability to pack on pounds even with the newer, fattier foods. Likes: Good Food, cooking. Dislikes: Cold. Early life: Tzera was born to misstep parents and was separated from them by Truancy officers at age three, orphaned, and taken in by the city. She spent the next seven years coming to age in a virtual environment under the care and tutelage of Avranan, whom she suspected was a program of the hatch pod. At ten she undertook the journey to the surface door and towards her first Amber stasis. During her school years, she was an average student who largely kept to herself, rarely making friends and solely focusing on getting to the new world as fast as possible. Once she entered the workforce she required little more than longer stasis cycles between every job. After stasis age, the longest time she spent outside of stasis was ninety days at age 13, a time she used to heal from a broken tail. Employment: Though she was recommended by Avranan for grimmanship, Tzera refused and instead went with food chemistry. This provided her with longer stasis times than a grimman and fewer bodies to deal with but ultimately led to her having her observation talents left unused. For those who kept track, she was perfectly average and rarely did anything to get noticed. Post-Longest Rest......
