Calney and Akuney

I am sorry for the long delay in content once again. Things have been very busy for me as I adjust to working full time. I want to start writing more with posts about different aspects of lore for The Inolla Chronicles as well as short stories that will eventually become a book called The Creation of Nionia.

The Beginning

Nionia is a grand world that was created by a god called Shiconen who found this universe and decided to create life here. He chose the largest planet in the system and mixed its gasses with magic so no one else could find his masterpiece. He named it Nionia.

The term Calney refers to the magical beings that originate in Nionia. As such, Akuney refers to the magical animals, who were the first creatures to be created by the great god, Shiconen, himself. The only non-magical beings that live in Nionia are the Mortarai, which are called Human in any other world. 

Akuney

The Akuney are the first magical beings that Shiconen created. The Unikney are similar to unicorns, and can take on the form of horses if they need to protect themselves. The Drakney are the closest to the mythical dragons. As the two most powerful beings, Shiconen chose them to create two of the many races of Nionia; the Elvaney and the Mortarai.

There are other Akuney that have the ability to shift from animal to human. The two main groups consist of the Lykney (the wolf packs) and the Felkney (the cat prides.) The mierney are considered Akuney and not Calney, because they are the most similar to mermaids. 

There are specific markers on the Akuney along with the Calney. Specifically for the Akuney, the eye color shows who they are. The Unikney are always born with bright blue eyes that can glow when they are in a very emotional state. The Drakney have bold iridescent eyes that show different color variations in emotional states. The Lykney packs have bright silver eyes, while the Felkney have gold. 

Calney

The Elvaney are the closest to the race of elves in various fantasy tales. They are the favorite of Shiconen’s because he put his own blood into creating the Unikney, which means the Elvaney have Celesney(the race of god where Shiconen is born from) blood in them. The Soconey are beings that are similar to sorcerers, wizards, warlocks, and witches. They are created when a Mortarai finds the matching Drakney they are assigned to when they are born. When a Soconey is born, they do not need a Drakney and their magic is much more stable. The Faeney was created to protect the lush landscapes that Shiconen has made for Nionia’s tenants. 

Beyond these two initial beings are the Vamney (my personal favorite) and the Warisney. I will delve much deeper into their creations later on after posting stories attached to them. For now all you need to know is Vamney are a race like vampires, and Warisney are a race like born warriors.

Each Calney has a mark somewhere on their body that shows what they are. Some are born with the markings, which look like a very detailed birthmark. When one is turned, they are given a mark that is darker and looks more like a tattoo. 

Special Traits

There are certain traits that come with being a Calney as well as an Akuney. One is that certain races automatically learn languages when they are transitioned or born. The Vamney automatically knows the language of Vamneic. Soconey and Elvaney instinctively know the truth language of Nionian since it is the very first, and sacred language Shiconen had given them. It is also the language that creates the most powerful spells. 

Each Calney and Akuney have the ability to change into the opposite sex if they wish to have a family with another of their own sex. It is very frowned upon, but not forbidden by Shiconen. The only thing forbidden is interbreeding. In addition, the Akuney have an ability to change into human form even if they are not Lykney or Felkney.

Finally, the trait that makes some fall to darkness. If someone was to kill another Calney or Akuney, that individual will automatically be given not only every memory of the life they took but also absorb the powers of that being.

I PROMISE I WILL BE MORE CONSISTANT!

Ok, I’ve said this many times before, but now that I am less busy/depressed I can update a lot more often! In fact, ever since I’ve begun listening to The Mortal Instruments series, by Cassandra Clare, my perpetual writer’s block has lifted. It takes about 40 minutes to get to and from my new full-time job. I choose that time to listen to the books. I’m finished City of Bones and City of Ashes, and now I am onto City of Glass.

Spark Has Ignited

Since this series is a fantasy book, I believe that is why I am able to write again. With school, I was only able to do so much. I was overwhelmed. Now, I’m back at it with writing. Just reading the series has made me realize that trying to write outside of the main series is what is holding me back.

I need to write within the scope of my pride and joy, The Inolla Chronicles. I’ve realized that going the traditional route is extremely stressful and if I am trying to have a backup career it will easily over whelm me. I decided that I will be self publishing the entire series. Novelettes, novellas, short stories, refference books for certain things and such will all be self published now.

Children of Gods and War

I decided that I will begin the series of stories with my own version of Greek and Roman Mythology. In a way. It is more so explaining how I feel about the various religions of the past and present. This will explain the origin of one of the main characters that will play a vital role in the main series. It will be a series of three novelettes, and then a three-part book. The first will be called The Wife of Ares, the second Child of Ares, and the third Child of Minerva.

A Week for Creativity

I used to be a Catholic and in the end it was not for me. However, I am not against Catholics or Christians. Even though I am Pagan I still believe that Jesus existed and more so believe he was a prophet like the Quran suggests. This is why I identify more as an ecclectic. Thanks to this, and other lost gospels that I have heard of over the years I have compiled an idea that I am writing through a collection of short stories.

Each one of these stories has to do with the famous gospel stories. However, they are told from the eyes of Judas who, in this point of view, was actually Jesus’ elder brother through Joseph. Half anyway. There is no magical virgin birth and no Resurrection in this story. The only magic has to do with prophecies and how Judas attempts to change fate in order to bring hope to their people.

This group of compiled stories create The Brother’s Lament.

Introducing: The “Villain” of the Inolla Chronicles

The curse of immortality is wearing heavily on my conscience. Not that I have one according to my brother. Thousands of millions of years pass and the boredom takes its toll while the generations of Inolla heiresses grow and die at my own hand. Secrets and lies seemed to come and go throughout this ungodly life. Heh…godly. Not that Shiconen has done anything great enough to earn the title. That tyrant does not deserve to be worshiped. A very long path of evil paved by good intentions. This is the thanks I get. Loving and losing intertwined with the curses left by he, the God of all worlds. 

Staring out into the dead land reminds me of how dark life is. Nothing but death surrounds Mikealon and myself. How many times had I lost my dear Celestia and daughter to the cruel fate of reincarnation? Too many. It is not fair. None of it is fair. The universe needs a new ruler. One that would alleviate the strife that plagues mankind. That is why I chose to fight and destroy as many worlds as possible. Once all worlds are one I can finally have my time. I will ascend and become the new god of all worlds if it’s the last thing I do.

Notes

I think this is one of the many character snippets and excerpts that I will post on this blog this year going forward. The character who is voicing these feelings and concerns is the character that I love the most. He is the kind of person that I would love to spend the rest of my life with. It may sound odd that I am in “love” with an original character of fiction but in no way am I living in a fantasy world.

I love creating this character and I really hope I can share more of this in the future.
