Origin: Around 980 BC, Ejigu, legendary warrior and commander of the Royal Guard of the Kingdom of Aksum, resigned his post. His wife Teru, was about to give birth and it was his intention to relocate his family to his ancestral home, a small village in the Semien Mountains. Soon after they arrived at their destination Teru gave birth to a baby girl who they named Makeda.

Makeda was an adventurous child and grew to know every inch of her mountainous home. Sensing her nature, Ejigu helped her avoid her chores so she could travel with him and watch him train. Watching soon became training and Makeda learned the ways of combat from a master. By the time she was a teenager, she could best any boy in the village (and most of the adult males) using the spear, bow or in close combat. She was her father's child in every way.

One night around Makeda's 18th year, the sky filled with strange lights and the village was attacked by strange insect/human hybrid creatures wielding weapons that fired beams of light that burned anything they touched. Ejigu and Makeda managed to outrun the attackers but Teru fell to one of the beams. The former King's guard and his daughter escaped into the forest and realized that they were the only survivors of the attack. Soon Ejigu discovered that they were being followed -- hunted. A deadly game of cat and mouse followed. Three of the insect creatures stalked and attacked Makeda and her father day and night while the two survivors used knowledge of their mountain home's terrain to stay ahead of their otherworldly pursuers. After a time Ejigu and Makeda began to employ guerilla tactics against their attackers; setting up ambushes and traps in their wake. While most of their attacks bounced harmlessly off the creatures' armor, they managed to detect weak points in the creatures' defense. On the fourth day they managed to crush one of the creatures in a rockslide trap but Ejigu was badly burned while making his escape with one of the fallen hunter's blades.

In a desperate gambit the humans managed to separate the remaining two creatures and engaged one of them in combat. Ejigu sacrificed himself so that Makeda could gut the creature with its comrade's blade. While Makeda knelt grieving her father she was found by another visitor to our world; Epion.

Epion was a member of the Sarai -- a cyclopean eyed, grey skinned humanoid alien race. Visibly impressed with the girl's feat, Epion communicated with her telepathically. He informed her that he was an enemy of the creature she had killed and that he and it had come from beyond the stars. The attack on her village and the hunt of Makeda and her father was part of a coming of age ritual for the creatures called the Kaz'nagoh, a way for the males of that species to prove their worth. Makeda learned that the Sarai were once the victims of these rituals until they became too powerful to be preyed upon. The Sarai now protected others and Epion offered Makeda his help to hunt and kill the final Kaz'nagoh.

Epion took the pieces of the armor from the dead Kaz'nagoh and fashioned a Sarai-styled weapon for Makeda; a wrist-housed axe which he named "Blood Sister." While she slept he implanted knowledge of Sarai combat techniques in her mind. The next morning they hunted the last Kaz'nagoh which Makeda struck down. F

Sleuthing Antimatter...

Two white dwarfs head toward a collision in this artist’s illustration. New research suggests that the Milky Way's preponderance of positrons could come from a specialized type of supernova from colliding low-mass white dwarfs — an explosion that is difficult to detect, but rich in an isotope that generates this kind of antimatter.

Aluna's Encounter: The Fissure

I planted my feet firmly on the ground. I never felt more connected to the planet where I stood than where I was right then in that moment. I took in a large, deep breath. It felt like I was breathing in the essence of crisp fresh snow.

And then I released.

This part of the plateau no one was allowed near. Off to the distance, I could see our city, Sheba, the buildings were made of gold and the streets were littered with diamonds and gems.

I zipped my jacket up and hid behind a large rock and waited.

The reason why people weren't allowed out this far from Sheba was because of the instability of the terrain. The scientists said that our world sometimes would converge with another world; a more dangerous world.

But this terrain was also where the agents came in and out of around this time of the evening. I wanted to see who they were bringing back this time.

A crackling of lightning and static happened…

Enigma #1 - Missing Pieces
In a post apocalyptic world, Two investigators (James and Brooks) are assign to a murder investigation that leads to more questions than what they bargain for.


Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
