Very short, very spoiler explanation, what about the story is.
English is far not my native language, so please excuse me for grammatical mistakes and so on
So. Myar wasn't born. He was created from a "mud of life" to be the owner of Fire Wind (Or Spirit of the Fire - a great ancient power). With this power, he had to read a very special spell that will end the long Reasons War. But his personality was too weak for that. Therefore, his guardian Danslav (also one of his "parents") sent him to the far north. Myar found there an ancient tree, in which was enclosed the personality of Martin Mine - a great magician and a planewalker, who was already dead physically, but his soul was saved in the tree. Martin Mine ([link]
) was strong enough to rule the Fire Wind.
Myar didn't want to give to Martin his body, but it was late: rithual was done. Total in one body were three persons: Martin - who wants be the one greatest magician it the world, Myar, wanting to accomplish his duty, and the Spirit of Fire (Fire Wind) subordinated to Martin.
So they agreed: Martin performs duty of Myar and then Myar gives to Martin the body. They finished the war, and Myar asked Martin for the last favor: go and say goodbye to his "parents". When they came to the city by the sea, they was found that Danslav White Claw is already dead and Varamira, his wife - trurly is fate-eater, the opponent of fate-binder (Fate-eater and fate-binder are kinda gods of Windside), and she wants to do many bad things (my pure english can't deal with it, sorry XD). Myar was very upset, cos he loved Varamira... maybe even not as a mother.
So Myar was very upset. He becames kinda crazy. Spirit of Fire has not managed to calm this emotions and imploded. He took total control over the body and power. Fire Wind turned Myar into a mertvar (deadthing literally), killed Varamira and then goes to the shores and makes a lot of damage.
Meanwhile, the global Reasons War on the continent degenerated into a civil war between sorcerers and
ordinary people. The powerful spell that Martin read makes mages no longer able to cast spells out loud and
the mages become weak. They can only make magic which requires a touch to be done.
Mages lost the civil war. Was established "Precept of the Restless Heart" - a set of rules, that restrict the already weak power of sorcerers. As satisfaction, groups of magicians have been allocated to clean up the coast from the effects of war, magical beasts and so on.
Kamoril was in one of these groups. This group had to determinate mertvar. Also in this group was a boy-healer (Marco) and Zorea Kath (wizard-reader, able to read minds by touch and so on)
From the group survived only Kamoril, Marco and Zorea. Mertvar allowed Kamoril to enter the Dusk (world
of dreams), where he met with the Spirit of Fire. They have concluded some kind of deal. (this strip is
about it: [link]
Spirit of Fire told Kamoril: "Thou shalt protect me, and I'll protect you. I will give you the strength to do so. But to be with me without loving me is impossible for a human."
When Kamoril came back, Mertvar was melted into a gold water, and there, on shore, was only some strong weird humanoid creature. The creature attacked Kamoril. Then the first time was awakened Kamoril's spider essence. [link]
After the fight he managed to capture the creature on the sand. Zorea came and sealed some of the unwanted memory
and emotions of creature in magic beads.
"I want to forget more, much more", - said the creature.
Then it become a man, and it was Myar.
All this was 30 years ago. Now Myar do not remember much of his past. But still he can change his form
to some other (kinda this [link]
) with help of Marco.
The power of Fire Wind was copied on Kamoril, Marco, Zorea and Nix (but this is other story), and
personality of Martin Mine still sleeps in Myar, who can't remember anything... And there's when the story
begin: to Myar's house came boy named Roman who is the grandson of Danslav and Varamira, and who's see
strange scary nightdreams and asks Myar to help him.
