Chapter: Prologue: Nayla Nova Fury
….. 25 Years Ago: …..
The Furyan planet was known as a place where the climate was harsh yet it was beautiful. The whole planet from outer space seems vegetation with pools of water here and there. The houses and buildings were mostly had of stone or marble. Some places seem to be like castles others were stone houses, but very well architect. Everything had awe about it, especially those that inhabit the Furyan planet.
Since the climate was harsh, the species had to adapt to it and become a part of the said climate. The creatures that roam the planet were usually predators. There were ones that creep mostly through the night and some by the day. But it was the beings called Furyans that were the rulers of the planet.
The Furyan race was known to be beings that are stronger in aspects of speed and strength. They had other aspects that were strong and inhuman like high stamina, quick recovery speed, and having high senses. Their senses were like animal senses. Furyans let lose their animal side and knew how to control it well.
Overall, the planet was a world that had inhabitants that were powerful and a superior race.
The society was a content one for all Furyans. There was classification of the normal and the superior. Or rather, the higher up Furyans were the Alpha Furyans. The Alpha Furyans were superior then the normal Furyan and they were usually the ones that were the leaders.
There was however a ruler over the Furyan race. Someone to keep order and make sure there weren't any conflicts going on. The Alpha leader and his mate—his wife—were known to be a strong couple. And when the time came when the wife had a baby, everyone was awe and excited for them.
Their baby was a girl, who would be known in other systems as a princess—since she was born from the rulers of the planets. The baby girl was name Nayla Nova Fury.
There was an Elemental by the name of Aereon that had appeared on the planet to welcome the newborn. However, she did come to tell them that there was danger coming to the planet. But the Furyan were stubborn to believe that they would be taken down so easily.
When Aereon warn them, she had glided her over to the newborn Furyan. When her eyes had landed on the baby, she let out a slight gasp and smiles. Before she came there was another prophecy by her people's calculations that there would be two babies Furyan that would live. But one of them was going to be the beauty of the race. They would carry the beauty that the Furyan race has to give. Hence, as Aereon stares down at the baby girl name Nayla, Aereon knew that this baby was going to be the second baby to live.
As the day disappears and the new one had started, Aereon stared up at the sky—since she stayed overnight—and she took in this comet looking shape coming into the Furya orbit.
"It's them. The Necromonger has come." Aereon whispers, disappearing in a slight breeze that came into the room. She had appeared in the newborn Nayla room. She took in the room, seeing it was made fit for the princess of Furya. As Aereon stood near the crib, staring down at the sleeping baby girl, a small frown couldn't help but come onto Aereon face.
"The suffering that you'll feel in the future will be of your people that you'll never get to rule." Aereon whispers, stepping away from the crib and moving towards the balcony.
From there, Aereon watch as the Necromonger had started to come onto the planet. The Furyan began to understand that this group was a threat and began to attack to which the Necromonger fought back. The door to Nayla's door slam open causing Aereon to turn to see Nayla's distress mother.
"They have come."
"Yes. I have told you all that it was going to happen." Aereon said, making her way over to the crib where Nayla arouse from sleep.
"Take her. Take her and make sure she is safe. Make sure she understands who and what she is. That she is a Furyan, one that came from the head of the Furyan race. Please, make sure she is safe until she learns enough to survive on her own free will."
Holding her arms around, Aereon took Nayla from the queen. Before Aereon could vanish with the baby Furyan, the queen took off two necklaces from around her neck and put it on Nayla. Both necklaces had a small tooth of a Hell Hound hanging from them.
"Live strong, Nayla. Your father and I love you so much."
The baby Nayla began to cry as if she knew that this was the last time she would see her mother or her home planet. The elemental disappear from the queen view just as Necromonger came bursting into the room.
The Elemental began to travel quickly through the lands, getting away from all the chaos and trying to go towards the pod that she had come from with another one of her kind. As she went past a large house with stone columns in the front, she quickly hid behind another building for out step Lord Marshal Zhylaw from within a house.
The Necromonger Lord Marshal was the one that ask Aereon for a prophecy. She had told him about Furyan and how a male Furyan would be his downfall in the future. However, she didn't realize that Zhylaw would be destroying Furyan for he didn't want to meet his downfall at all.
As the Lord Marshal vanishes, the Elemental let the curiosity get the best of her and she went into the house that the Lord came out of. She roams the house until she came upon an infant with its umbilical cord around its neck. On its crib, it said that his name was Richard B. Riddick. Glancing back at the infant, Aereon saw that the infant was still moving and alive. This made Aereon to know that this is the one. This is the male Furyan that would bring the Lord Marshal downfall in the future. She knew that this baby Furyan was an Alpha to be able to survive strangulation from its own cord.
Deciding to try to make up her mistake in forcing to tell the Lord Marshal about his downfall to a Furyan, she pull the cord away from the male baby Furyan neck and pick him up in her other arm. Now, she had two Furyan babies in her arms. Thus, the prophecy of two Furyan baby living was complete.
Quickly, she vanishes from the area and glide across the land, escaping the chaos left behind her.
When she was on the ship, going back to her home planet, she had walk to a crib where two Furyan babies were in. Stopping before the crib, she stared in between the two and couldn't help but note something.
The Furyan name Richard B. Riddick was on his stomach, his head turn towards Nayla and his left arm had lifted up. His hand came upon to rest on Nayla cheek. Nayla stare at Riddick and coo a bit.
"They are already making a connection." The other Elemental that was presence on the ship had come up beside Aereon, saying.
"It appears that they were destined to be with one another."
…Years Gone By: …..
As time gone by, Aereon had drop Riddick off at a couple's home before leaving. She was only meant to help raise Nayla to a certain age. She couldn't handle two Furyan at the same time.
And as time went, Nayla grew by the years.
She was turning into the beauty that represents that of the beauty of the Furya race. At times, Aereon felt like Nayla was carrying whole Furyan race in her. At the age of sixteen, Nayla had told Aereon about this woman coming into her dreams name Shirah and placing a glowing hand on her chest. And from there, Nayla would have this glowing handprint on the right side of her chest, just above her breasts. The Furyan woman had told Nayla that it was known as the "Wrath of the Furyans." It was the suffering of all the Furyan that didn't escape the Necromonger attacks on their planets.
As promise to Nayla's mother, Aereon had told Nayla about the Furyan race. She told Nayla of how Nayla was literally the princess and came from strong bloodline of Alphas. And that there will be a time when Nayla will be needed for a purpose in the near future.
At the age of twenty, Nayla had taken her leave. She was thankful for the Elementals for letting her live with them, even though most of the times; Nayla was a stubborn person, especially when the animal side was always presence.
And when she took her leave, Nayla explore the systems. She couldn't help but get in trouble a few times with the law. It wasn't her fault that men try to come on to her. But she could have gone easy on a few of them because some of them probably never want to come out of their homes again. She has been caught twice by mercs and was sent to Crematoria—which the escape wasn't fun, especially hiding underneath the floorboard the whole time—and the second was Slam City. She had fun there until she made her escape by going through the ventilation system and stealing a ship.
When age twenty-five came along, Nayla had disguised herself and got onto a transporting ship known as Hunter-Gratzner. She got put into this container to be put under cryo-sleep for the whole trip. Though there was one problem.
Since she had the primitive side—the animal side—it stayed up. Her senses were still up and working. Hence, the trip was going to be a long one.
But she didn't realize that her thoughts were going to be horrific, true fact.
I have just wanted to try out my luck with writing a Riddick story. Anyways, I remember watching Riddick growing up and it's amazing how awesome the movie is till this day. I have decided to add some history about the Furyan race—Had to look up some more information about it—and I know that there probably wasn't a king and queen, but there had to be some type of ruler!
Anyways, enjoy, review—not flame type reviews because I know that I mess up on my grammar and tenses—and just enjoy the story.
Disclaimer for this story:
I don't own anything about the Riddick series.
The only thing that I do own is my original character, Nayla.
