Among the cluster of stars, there is a legend…
A starship captain was headed to a recently discovered planet. With him among his main crew was his young nephew. His nephew still a child had been requested by the leader of one clan out of the many thousands that inhabited this world. The captain hoping to get a treaty packed signed agreed. This signing would help the Federation prosper.
When the ship arrived on the planet's surface they were met by several guards in armor. They were taken to a stronghold located in a forest. The door opened to rivaling a cloaked figure carrying a helmet. Also dressed in armor. As both the captain and young boy at his side went to take a knee. The cloaked figure removed the hood. A shock to both men as the figure turned out to be a family member. The captain's mother.
"I understand all of this must come as quite a shock to both of you. All will be explained in good time." Her smile was gentle. Consisting of a calm demeanor.
They stood before the mother on her throne. She told them that she had taken the throne from the previous owner. She stated that she stayed with the Federation for some time after her husband's passing, working on a ship as a security personnel member. Learning as much about hand to hand combat and firearms as was possible. Working with the crew helped distract her from some of the pain from the loss. Just recently, she felt she needed more out of life.
When she heard about the discovery of a planet with warriors of very ancient traditions, she decided to one-day visit. She wasted no time in resigning her position and using her credits to buy her own ship. A few members of her crew joined her as hire hands. Later, the extended family came on when she took over the throne.
"Now it is the time that the two of you study as successors to the throne." She gave a smile, leaning forward, seeming excited about the opportunity.
The captain explained that he could not just leave his crew out there while the two of them studied in the politics and culture of this world. The refusal was clearly not an option as just then the guards drew out their blasters. With that, the captain drew out his communicator telling his crew that he was going to need to take leave.
Time passed along, the captain and nephew's growing knowledge.
Wartime came a few years later between the Federation army and the army of the queen's family. The captain sided with his crew wanting to go back home after having felt like a hostage for so long. With the youngest of both families not wanting to take a side. He disabled both of the army's leaders having used the techniques he learned from his clan. Only hoping they would talk things over. The boy ran into the woods. Looking back one last time to see that the fighting refused to cease.
Time passed and the fighting stopped. As the queen lay on her deathbed she called to her son. "My son a truce has been formed. In hopes that the lost child of both families may be found." She paused for a moment then continued, "Your brother married. This in-law of yours is fair and good. This is the boy's mother. I have never met her but I was told her name was Savitri. Find your nephew. No, your son." Her final parting words. Allowed her to close her eyes passing at that moment from the illness she had received.
The new count realized what he needed to do. Spending the next several weeks. He commanded the soldiers of his clan and various Federation members from his crew to look for the child. When they came back empty having reported that there was no sign of him. The count looked through all of the texts in the stronghold in hope that before his brother passed on. He may have left some information about his wife. As the sun was rising one morning. He found the text telling him all about his brother's mate.
The people of the planet honored and worshiped a sun deity. For many centuries, the world prospered under the care of the dragon goddess. Peaceful times lasted for many years. Until the people of the kingdom began to fight. They formed clans and wars were fought over ownership of land in hopes of gaining control of the planet. A great evil was born from the hearts of these warriors. Their greed manifested into a demon.
Light and darkness fought one another. Neither triumphing over the other. Moments before her slumber. Savitri manifested some of her eternal light. This light transformed into a human. This was the state she took when she first ruled the planet. The other part of her reformed into an elegant looking jewel. This dormant part of her was hidden away at the goddess's request by an unknown servant. At this, she ran off and was never spotted again by the people of this world. Should war happen and the two parts of the soul become one. The great dragon will be awoken. All shall suffer and the stars will begin anew.
This had all been a setup. The reason the captain and his nephew had been called to the planet. The time they spent training at their new home. The fact that a war had been started between the Federation and the people of this world. All so the queen could awaken the true ruler to destroy the galaxy. Out of sheer pain through the loss of her husband. The pain his mother could never get over. Everyone would pay as a result of him being taken from her.
The patriarch smiled at the thought of his nephew. No, his son. Had stopped the world from coming to an end. His running away had saved the galaxy and now it was the time he got him back. Hours went by and there was no sign of the boy. He searched the part of the woods that had not been disturbed by the war. Until he came upon an elegant looking Pegasus. Looking like an angel. Standing in the middle of the forest. The animal took a knee as soon as it saw him.
"My lord I am a servant of Savitri. Her Highness requested that I find you. She is with her son. Right, this way."
The patriarch followed the beautiful Pegasus through the forest until the pair came to a spring lake in which sitting across from them were two figures. One was the true hero of the war. The other a regal looking woman that was no doubt the creator of the universe. With that, he walked over to the other side of the lake. Put a comforting hand on the boy's shoulder explaining everything that had transpired.
The captain then asked for Savitri's hand in marriage and she nodded with a smile. The wedding said and done. The boy was now old enough to take over as the leader of the clan. His mother and stepfather took their rightful place as rulers of the planet. Uniting all of the clans under there rule. The treaty between the Federation and this planet was never signed. Feeling a neutral state would be best for this world. With that, the planet was at peace for many years and long after.
