The Rose Warrior: Aurora Warriors

The goal of the warriors was to prevent consciousness from being hacked. This  was the new form of warfare. Instead of killing each other, Ferna found that he could hack into the minds of our people while he was in the Aurora plane.

He presented ideas that were not their own, but rather ideas he conjured up. He tampered with their memories and dreams so that he was sure he would produce something the individual could not resist, and instead sympathize with. These false memories were in direct alignment with Ferna’s ideology and his doctrine of how the universe was and should continue to be; he saw no middle ground. He operated on an ‘all or nothing ‘principle: they were either with him or against him.

Since he had made the first move on the Aurora plane, we have forever been playing defense, more so than offense. Our warriors could only enter the field by placing themselves in these artificial pods where they were strapped down. The restraints were for their safety…well, and the others tasked on monitoring their vital signs.

You see, once strapped into the pod, they were injected with the poisonous dose of Roodio to help them ascend to the Aurora plane. Of course, the initial step was the plunge where they pop from their physical body into their vaporized energy form. Once this transition occurs, their physical body is left in a delirious and half dreamlike state. For all practical purposes, this means anything goes. Some Aurora Warriors are quiet peaceful and are like Ferna who seem as if they are merely sleeping. While others, behave as if they are acting out a night-terror, which can be dangerous.

If their physical body is injured or tampered with, it can affect how they are able to perform on the Aurora plane. And what that means is they might fall prey to Ferna, who is the tempter for all those on the Aurora plane. He is the master of the plane and he knows it better than anyone. Moreover, his sole goal is to convert others into his puppets. Everyone is at risk of being converted because he can come at any time, but those who are most susceptible are the Warriors who are also on the plane with him. Think of them as being naked and exposed for all that they are. All their secrets of self and past histories are open to Ferna, and he can use them in the most clever of ways to trick them into believing in him.

Of course, to become a Warrior, there is a rigorous training process and only a select few are even considered for The Aurora Battle Academy.

The Rose Warrior: Creation

The primary divide between the Foreigners and the Natives was how they viewed the universe. See, the Foreigners believed it was darkness that allowed for the creation of all the physical universe so there whole civilization lived in a world illuminated by nothing more than a full moon. While the Natives believed it was the sun and light that allowed for creation; therefore, they desired maximum illumination.

It is clear how these two ideals might find it difficult to live in harmony because their differences made for quite opposite world views.

I am the son of the Legendary Warrior, Rose. I am a Native. The story I am telling is one of great significance for my people and the people that came before me.

This is the story of my mother and the valor and courage that she showed in battle against the Foreigners (at least they are to me and my people). I was not alive to see her feats; and even if I had been it would not have mattered. No one did, and no one could ever, see what she actually did, for it was captured by only her consciousness and imprinted on only her energy field. But, my story includes what I know, what she has said, and what has been told to me by the people.

This is a story and a work of art, but it is not fiction. My words, no matter how vivid and description, will always fall short. They pale in comparison to the true events and the true importance of the events that have occurred. It was on that day of the event that my mother changed the course of the history, and the world forever.
