GLOSSARY

Three magic gods bring good and noblebright fantasy tales

AITHOS: The planet/world in which the Dragonsfall Trilogy takes place. Also related to the word "Aedes" meaning: House of Abode (People). 

AHKAN: Minor evil incarnate in the form of fae creatures. While only a story for children their reincarnation cycle represents the never-ending problem of evil and the need of the just to remain vigilant.

ANCHORS: A mysterious source of magic that not only keeps the lands of Aithos afloat but provides several sources of power, life, and economic value. No one knows from which they originate but they are often depicted in art as the embodiments of Hope.

ANKHORIALE: Fuvalan word for Anchor (See Anchor)

BAILEY: A leveled courtyard or ward within fortified walls called "Curtain Walls."

BRIGHT LEAF:

CATCH LEAF: A special type of leaf that allows most trees and certain shrubs to reach the much-needed light that is often above the thick cloud cover of Aithos. Thin and membranous, catch leaves furl into thin cylindrical cones at night or in a storm. During the day they open up and fill with gases and use the wind to rise. They are attached by vines that can stretch upwards of a hundred feet. 

CAVALEIRO: A warrior whose prowess, virtue, and (often but not required) blood earns him this position of prestige in a deme. The name derives from the fact that these warriors are often always mounted on the finest steeds, although it is not a requirement that a cavaleiro even know how to ride a horse. Despite a cavaleiro's background, once anointed, they are often given quarters at a noble's home and are referred to with the same respect as such.

CORPSE: Sometimes referred to as the soulless, they are mindless husks whose personality and soul have been removed by the magic of an Anchor. This forging process turns a Corpse white and they become blank slates that require training and commands. Forged from criminals Corpses are the slaves of The Valley.

COVEN: A gathering of witches.
