Rainjerr - Peophin of Healing Magics and Broken Souls Restored


In the high days of Phaedra Herd, I was a young and unwise colt. Now, I have return from my exile in the mountains, where I have been taught much. Phaedra's memories rest in its own amulet - and I am sworn to return and keep that memory alive.

You may dismiss me as a peophin driven mad by long exile - but that is your own to decide. For myself, I will travel onwards_ searching. However, I miss friendship... perhaps those on my travels will be amiable... *he smiles, and trots onward_







Please come back later. Or visit my sister's page. - Alternatively, you can read the start of my story, but I warn you it is as yet unfinished...


My tale.. is still hard for me to want to bring to mind… but if you really want, I will continue.

I was born in the mountains of Meridell, at Phaedra Lake in the north. The leader of Phaedra Herd was Laertinus, the keeper of the herd amulet and a strong purple peophin. His mate, Andromachae the White, was the alpha mare, and powerful in magic. The herd prospered in the grassy mountain slopes, bathing in the crystal clear ice melt of the lake and breathing clean crisp air. Not many bothered them; King Skarl was referred to every so often on the off hand, very much seeming part of another world. Laertinus himself prospered, and four foals in a litter were born to him and Andromachae. The oldest was Kordyseus, green and white and blessed with the magic of controlling others' courage and spirit; Rainjerr, blue and white and strong with healing magic (controlling others' bodies); Astyanaxae, red and white and with the power to control others' minds; and Samraika, gold and white and able to control others' hearts and joy.

Yes, this was my family, Phaedra Herd's finest. In such a way we grew, sheltered and happy. Then it 'twas calamity struck.

One long summer afternoon, my dearest quiet sister Naxi (or maybe I should call her Asta – that was what she called herself, and I will cherish it as such) and I had gone exploring. We were several seasons old by then; Kord and Sammie had stayed back, racing each other in the lake, and Na- Asta and I went up the mountain. As the afternoon wore on, we reluctantly decided to head back. I was still full of energy, and I ran ahead to surprise her when we got back to Phaedra. Skidding to a halt at the water's edge, I saw my father gazing troubled at the mountains to the north. Tilting my head to the side, I walked closer. The purple stallion was turning the herd amulet that was our grandsires legacy over on the ground, shiny hooves dulling in the grassy shadows.

"What troublest thou, Father?" I asked softly, coming up behind him. Laertinus looked up and smiled without happiness.

"Rainjerr, my young son. Th'art back from your travellings right early. But I am glad that thou hast come." He sighed before continuing.

"Mayhap tis just an ill-humour of mine. But I feel some sense of dread. Where is Astyanaxae?"

"Just coming, Father, she – "

"She is safe, then. My son, I pray thee, take this and go and find her." He pushed the golden amulet on its leather strap towards my startled countenance. "Then keep it safe for me for a while. I must go and speak with thy mother." With a swift turn he pushed himself into the water and began swimming strongly over to where I could see my mother playing with Kord and Sammie. I gulped. What was this, that Father should leave me, a mere colt, in charge of the amulet? I hesitantly slipped my head into the strap and took it up. It was surprisingly heavy, but then I was young. I set up of the hill to find Asta, puzzling as I went.

About an hour up the slope, I was beginning to wonder where my scarlet sister had got to, when I noticed a build up of forbidding clouds.

"Father had me worried over a storm?" I thought with relief. But these clouds rolled silently and swiftly until they covered the whole sky, bringing gusts of cold air with them. And a dark shape, hovering there! I cried out in fear and surprise as the shape resolved itself into a castle like object, overshadowing our very lake. I started back down the slope as I saw dark, flying neopets dropping from the castle to attack the tiny figures of my herd below. What was happening? I continued running, calling out for my family as I went.

But as I drew nearer to the shadow of the castle, suddenly a white ghostly shimmer appeared in front of me.

"Abate thy pace, Rainjerr!" it commanded, before hastening towards me. I realised that this was a form of my mother, practising her imagery magic.

"Mother?" I squeaked, ashamed at my own reaction, flailing to a halt.

"Rainjerr, my son," and her voice was heart-breaking. Her image flickered, and she turned her head to bark something at one unseen. Then she turned back again.

"Rainjerr, we are doomed. There can be no safety for Phaedra now." Her voice broke. "But we cannot be broken! Not whilst one of Phaedra still holds the amulet!" Andromachae took a few half-steps towards me, pleading in her eyes. "My son, my little one, thou must flee to the mountains. Find Parissandra, and Asclepian, and come not near the shadowed castle!"

"Mother, I don't un - " I stopped. "I will do so, mother, but can I not help thee?"

"Depart, now! I – behind that there! Turn, do not let that eyrie past!"

The image staggered backwards as something hit it in the neck, and as suddenly as it appeared, it was gone.

"MOTHER! FATHER!"

I yelled, starting forward and then stopping. My mother had given valuable minutes to warn me. I felt responsibility weighing heavy on my chest as the amulet. Dashing tears from my eyes, I turned back up the mountain trail. Where was Asta? Who was Parissandra and Asclepian? I did not understand anything except the reality of running, as dark clouds boiled across the sky

I did not see any one of my herd again.

Pausing for breath I reached the edge of the pine forest, by the snowline. Ragged sobs sprang from my colt's throat; if I looked down, the glimmering sparkle of Phaedra Lake was completely obscured by the dark castle. A sharp pain suddenly lanced through me, and the gem set hidden in the heart of the amulet glowed incandescent. I leant against a nearby tree, puzzled by the pain, still in denial.

A crackly shout rang up the rocky path.

"I'm sure I saw another of those peophin whelps up this way!" it called. I knew voices carried far in these parts; but I was not about to take any chances. I pushed further into the pine forest, walking in the shadows, fearful of every noise. But as I walked, I felt that this was warm darkness; not that dank and evil darkness of cold stone and stark walls, but the green and soft darkness of the forest. I had nearly forgotten my purpose; the forest calmed my racing heart, and I finally sat bemused by a tree, exhausted. For a peophin, it is difficult to run on land; but somehow I had run all evening. I did not realise when my eyes closed on tear-stained cheeks.

"But it cannot be possible that he is from Phaedra," snapped a female voice, swam into hearing. "Perhaps he is from that castle of Darigan's!"

"Pariss. Look at the colt. He is not of evil! And unless I am mistaken, that is the amulet that Priamin wore…" replied an older, male voice.

I opened my eyes. In the forest dark a white shape was leaning over me, prodding my side with a gentle hoof.

"Mother?" I mumbled, blinking muzzily.

"I am sorry, little peophin," said the first voice, less sharp this time. I turned my head to see where it came from, and bit back a yell as I saw the mutated features. And now I really was awake.

"Hush, young colt!" commanded the white shape, and I instinctively obeyed. And as my eyes grew accustomed, a stern old white ixi stood in front of me. The face that had scared me so was looking at me cynically; and it belonged to a female korbat, green and blue and twisted. I gulped.

"What's your name, son?" said the white ixi more kindly. The korbat snorted slightly, as if holding me in her contempt. That fired me up, and I stood straight, glaring at her.

"I am Rainjerr, son of Laertinus, of Phaedra," I said with a challenging stare. "Who are you?"

The korbat stared at me for a second, and then her face creased into a laugh. "We've got a right one here, Asclepian old friend!" she nodded. The white ixi looked smug.

"I know you are of Phaedra, little colt. I am Asclepian. Do not take much of Parissandra's comments; she does not mean it."

"Like heck I don't," the korbat snapped, but I could see a flicker of laughter as I looked from one to the other.

"Asclepian? Pariss- I have been sent to look for you! My mother said I should, and to flee, because of the castle, and to - " I gabbled out.

"Your mother being Priamin's little Andromachae?" said Asclepian shrewdly. I half-nodded, and looked down.

"I think… I think…"
"I think they're all dead," I whispered out, staring in horror as it struck me.



And so it was that I came under the care of old Asclepian and Parissandra. We lived in that forest as I grew; the warm darkness was hidden from the roaming guards of Darigan, and the one place that we were safe. The old ixi became my mentor; he taught me all I know of healing other creatures, petpets, neopets, even some humans. And my magic, that I had known so little of before, came strongly to the fore.
