The original Femasiria – the first one christened a Sister of the Sapphire – was an Amazon. The Amazons are a nation of all-female warriors.
Femasiria had been chosen by the Greek God Apollo to train the other Sisters for battle with the demon hordes of Hades. Together they were to rescue the goddess Hecate from Hell.
As an Amazon, Femasiria was an expert in all the ways of warfare. She carried a ballator medallion sword, standard for all Amazons (which the great Viking swords were based upon). Later, Apollo had a sapphire necklace endued with a portion of magic from the larger gemstone which gave it the ability to transform into a formidable likeness of the same fine double-edged ballator sword she owned, which she and all subsequent Femasirias could call into usage whenever in need of it. Since the first Femasiria was a non-human with superior strength, agility, and fighting acumen, all future Femasirias also developed such ability via the symbiont received. Femasiria remained a Sister for over 50 years before retiring and being replaced by a human. Apollo preferred to have another Amazon, but Zeus decided it would be the duty of just the humans to protect the sapphire going forward; hence, all Femasirias are now courageous, beautiful raven-haired humans.
The first Euphoria was human, as was her best friend, Saqqara. Euphoria was of African descent. Her family were slaves of a Grecian senator. Euphoria obtained her freedom when she became a Sister of the Sapphire. Whenever a new Euphoria is needed, The Seeker always replaces her with a descendant of the African race.
The first Euphoria remained a Sister for less than 7 years before retiring, weary and battle-worn, and thus replaced by another human. The stress of fighting demons and other supernaturals took such a toll on Euphoria (and every human Sister) that after her retirement the Greek God Apollo decreed that no human should serve as a Sister for more than 5 years.
Trained by Femasiria in the ways of warfare, all the Sisters are experts in the use of the sword, lance, and bow. Euphoria carried a sword, but she also carried another weapon she’d taught herself to use – the whip. Later, Apollo had a sapphire necklace endued with a portion of magic from the larger gemstone. When pulled off the neck the gem transforms into a handle and the chain into either a long blade-studded whip or a short sword for her and all subsequent Euphorias to use whenever the need arises.
The original Saqqara – the first one christened a Sister of the Sapphire – was human (as was her best friend Euphoria). However, she unfortunately lost her life during a horrific zombie attack orchestrated by Carnivean early on.
The second Saqqara was a Light Fairy, so-called because she was the offspring of an animal and a fairy. Her mother and father were fairies, but her maternal grandmother was a unicorn! Most types of fairies have special abilities. Light fairies have the ability to heal by touch, which the second Saqqara could do. The fairy Saqqara remained a Sister for almost 50 years before retiring and being replaced by another human (at Zeus’ request).
Trained by Femasiria in the ways of warfare, all the Sisters are experts in the use of the sword, lance, and bow. The first Saqqara carried a sword. The second also did, along with throwing knives, to use during battle. Later, Apollo gave the fairy Saqqara a bracelet studded with sapphires endued with a portion of magic from the larger gemstone, giving it the ability to transform into either a short sword or multiple throwing knives, which she and all subsequent Saqqaras could choose to call into usage at any time.
The first Saqqara was human and had nothing to pass on, but since the second Saqqara was a non-human with wings and a healing touch, all future Saqqaras also could display wings and possess a healing touch through the magic of the Sapphire – but for some reason only the wings are passed!
Furthermore, the wings only appear when the Sister is very anxious, stressed, angry or even overjoyed about something. A Saqqara cannot make them appear or disappear at will. And unlike it was for the original fairy, the wings do not give a Saqqara the ability to fly. Why some attributes for this Sister are passed and others are not is unknown. Apollo is still yet to figure it out.
In Classical Greek mythology, Pandora was the first human woman created by the deities, specifically by Hephaestus and Athena on the instructions of Zeus. After her creation, she was then entrusted with a special box to watch and protect, never told what was in it yet told never to open it. Unfortunately, one day Pandora opened this box, releasing all the evils of humanity that had been placed inside by the Gods – leaving behind only Hope once she had it shut again. She had opened the box out of simple curiosity, not as a malicious act. Nevertheless, Zeus banished her to everlasting solitude as punishment.
After Hecate – the Goddess of Magic and Witchcraft – was kidnapped by the god of the Underworld known as Hades and imprisoned in Hell, the Greek God Apollo came to Pandora with a request. He needed a place to hide a large special gem that Hecate had created before her capture, and the box Pandora possessed was perfect for it. After learning about Hecate, Pandora requested to join the other five women preparing to visit Hell to rescue Hecate from imprisonment. Apollo and Zeus allowed it as a penance for her disobedience, and she became the sixth Sister of the Sapphire.
Pandora served for 50 years as a Sister before retiring. She was replaced by a human. Trained by Femasiria in the ways of warfare, all the Sisters are experts in the use of the sword, lance, and bow. The first Pandora chose the bow, which she carried along with the box, to use during battle. Later, Apollo gave her a ring with a large solitary sapphire endued with a portion of magic from the larger gemstone which gave it the ability to transform into a pistol crossbow that she and all subsequent Pandoras could call into usage at any time. Recently a Pandora requested an upgrade to her ring. Now a Selkin-Orgg short-sword may also be selected if desired.
Since the beginning and throughout the ages, only the Pandoras are entrusted to carry the box containing Hecate’s magical sapphire. Over the years the box has gone through many changes, from the one originally given by Zeus to the hipster one worn strapped over the Pandoras’ shoulders of the modern era.
It could be said that if it wasn’t for Chandria, there wouldn’t be the Sisters of the Sapphire. The original Chandria – the first one christened a Sister – was a dragon-faerie – a creature with the ability to communicate with dragons.
At that time many dragons roamed the earth but eventually became extinct after a great flood (this could be “Noah’s Flood,” as recorded in the book of Genesis of the Bible).
The dragon-faerie race was located in Eastern Asia (which was essentially ancient Mongolia, China, Korea, and Japan – long before those countries became known by those names), but many dragon-faeries had migrated throughout Asia and parts of Europe by the time of the great flood, which, as said, had wiped them out.
The dragon-faerie Chandria remained a Sister for more than 20 years before she was killed by a monster that was attacking a baby dragon. The monster had been that of Carnivean’s doing. The Seeker replaced the dragon-faerie with a young Asian woman. Since then all Chandrias are Asian or of Asian descent.
Trained by Femasiria in the ways of warfare, all the Sisters are experts in the use of the sword, lance, and bow. The first Chandria carried a sword to use during battle (and sometimes procured the help of a nearby dragon). Later, Apollo had a sapphire bracelet endued with a portion of magic from the larger gemstone which gave it the ability to transform into a sword. Hundreds of years later, a woman who was an expert in the use of a Japanese war fan made of razor sharp steel was chosen to be Chandria. When she was replaced, Apollo also incorporated the fan into the bracelet. Recently a Chandria requested additions to the weapon selection and it was granted: a double-katana and double razor-war fans instead of just one. Now all subsequent Chandrias can call into being either a katana, double-katana, a single war fan or two fans whenever required.
The first Chandria was a non-human with tattoo-like body markings of dragons as well as the ability to converse with them (dragon-faeries lose their wings and pointed ears upon maturity). The human Chandrias also suddenly receive dragon-like body markings (other than any they may already have) as well as the ability to communicate with dragons! Unfortunately, however, there are no more dragons to converse with . . . right?
Beautiful, golden-haired Angelina was a nymph. A Nymph in both Greek and Latin mythology is a minor female nature deity typically associated with a particular location or landform. Nymphs are known for having wonderful singing voices and a playful, carefree way of living. There are 5 different types of nymphs, Celestial Nymphs, Water Nymphs, Land Nymphs, Plant Nymphs and Underworld Nymphs. Angelina was a plant nymph. Plant nymphs are born with the perfect so-called “green thumb.” Plant life thrives under their care. Likewise, plant nymphs can cause vegetation’s instant death as well. Moreover, plant nymphs can also “control” some plants – for instance, causing a vine to wrap around something or someone!
The nymph Angelina remained a Sister for only 2 years before she quit so that she could marry the very first Seeker. She was then replaced by a human.
Trained by Femasiria in the ways of warfare, all the Sisters are experts in the use of the sword, lance, and bow. The first Angelina carried two short swords, one for each hand, to use during battle. Later, Apollo had two sapphire rings, one for each hand, endued with a portion of magic from the larger gemstone which gave them the ability to transform into short swords that she and all subsequent Angelinas could call into usage at any time.
The first Angelina special attribute was her uncommon beauty, exceptional singing voice, and a special way with plants. Although beauty and voice are not necessarily inherited from the first, indeed for all Angelinas these attributes are enhanced by the magical power of the Sapphire.
