Here we are at last for another installment of the Leaves of Hellebore series, I’m still building a plot and this particular character’s introduction is integral to the main story which will begin to unfold soon.
“Astelle clutches her favourite of all the many books of Loregarde; a large, heavy and ancient tome of which she can understand nothing written within; but the beautifully written script is something magical in itself and captivating in the fullest sense leaving no need to understand, just a strong sense of admiration and wonderment.”
Astelle is the curator and keeper of the Loregarde Paper House, it boasts the largest collection of scrolls, records, tomes and manuscripts in the world and is also a place of learning for the sages.
Situated in the palace district of the Empire’s capital city, it is heavily guarded and entry is permitted only with special permission and even then not everything is allowed to be read by those permitted entry into the building; there is also a small collection of texts from the Eldar days although there are no known persons who can understand or translate them.
