The Mystery of Adalance opened its doors to everyone. In return, it offered nothing more than what one could give to oneself. And therefore Aaya was already a genius when she first stepped into its halls.


Aaya is a musical child prodigy. She was raised by her mother and grandmother, and they traveled along the frontier of the Water realm as migrant workers. An applecart, a rainy day, and an accidental encounter found Aaya's family a new home and new opportunities. Aaya is rarely seen without her trusty fishing pole and gourd-shaped vielle. She goes on a quest to find Eirendi because the older girl promised that they would meet again.

"Lines on your face."

"Hm?"

"Is that what makes you old?" asked Eirendi.

"Quite the contrary; it is the being old that puts the lines on one's face," Haolan chuckled.

"Then what makes you old, Grandfather?"

"Do you know what old means, Eiri?"

She shook her head.

"It simply means that one has been around for a long time."

"Well, that doesn't explain anything."

"No, it doesn't," the doctor admitted. "Not much."

"But then...you aren't old at all, Grandfather!" Eirendi beamed. "You haven't been around very long."

The old man laughed so that the afternoon sun bounced on his bald crown, and the sparse gray of his beard and whiskers and eyebrows quivered with mirth.

"No indeed, dear child. But I daresay I do have a few years on you."



A salty wind from the southern sea
Up hill country it blew
The rain had scarcely touched the lea
When up sprang the bamboo!

Strings twanging as the gourd-curved body of the vielle thumped against her back, the girl
