#AtoZChallenge: April 22, 2013 ~ Siris & Galahad

The Golden Girdle I have written about you, and you continue to intrigue me.  You are the young peasant who defeats the Titans, and Isa’s friend, or are you? Or are you Ausar, who, in the mists of times, imprisoned the Worker of Secret?  Ausar is also another of Osiris’ s names.  For some weeks I have entertained another possibility: that you may be a reflection of Galahad, one of the three achievers of the Grail of the legend…

This would befit you: for naive you are as he was, fearless, and I guess, of no experience at all with women.  Galahad the Preux was a virgin, the immaculate son of Lancelot and Elaine, who treacherously appeared as Guinevere to Lancelot…  Your father forgave your mother, but you, his son, had only one goal: The Grail.

Tennyson wrote “My good blade carves the casques of men…” for you… And, yes, this reminds me of the Infinity Blade…

#AtoZChallenge: April 10, 2013 ~ Isa

 You are Siris’ little helper, and, I suspect, secret sweetheart.  You are smart, fast on your feet, and a deadly shot with your crossbow.  Often you have saved his life, often you have tricked the God King, that evil creature.

But what I’d really like is to have you in the fight against the Titans.  I have even written about it!

“Isa suddenly froze, turning forward, coming alert.

Siris cut himself off, loosening the Infinity Blade in its sheath. What was that? Voices, he thought.

Isa pointed. “Ahead, I think.”…”

~ From “Infinity Blade, Awakening” by Brandon Sanderson.
