Arc Leader: Lanara

Chapter One: Grief Is Just Love… With No Place Left To Go

Summary: The past few years have been heartbreaking on Lanara, and though she tries her very best to remain an optimistic little witch, a cataclysm of events result in her final downfall. She had moments of recklessness since the death of Largakh, the resurrection of Valrae, and that lone visit to the Shadow Plane. However, in all of these moments, she was able to see a bit of good, and relied heavily on her fate, despite the horrors from her youth that continually nipped at her heels. But what would become of the witch once all hope is gone? Elioyahazer vanishes, his butler kicks Lana out of their shared home, and she feels betrayed as their wedding day passes without the exchange of nuptials. Talyara and Lanara are both abducted by witch killers, tortured, and it’s made certain that Lana will never dance again, due to an ankle injury. Fearing for her sanity, she flees to Venturil to reside with her brother, and hands over the Adventurer’s Guild to Meri. The unpredictable events that unfold next are difficult to swallow.

Chapter Two: Innocence Is The Hardest Thing To Prove

Summary: It’s been six months since Lanara was hospitalized at the Wellness Clinic, and after figuring out exactly what had happened, she is released. Apparently, the woman was studying astral projection and a rogue spirit had entered her body and committed the evil deeds. She returns to the lands, to clear the name of Nicolai Carter, the Backstreet Bard who pleads guilty for Lana’s crimes, and to regain the trust of those she considered friends. Finding a haven in the magical land of Enchantment, the witch does daily volunteer work that insures her safety, room, and board, while allowing her to do little acts that help to atone for her sins. Even though she didn’t commit the crimes, as it was another in her body, she feels that the blood of her victims is still on her hands. Plus, she will forever blame herself, after hearing that suicide led to Scandal's death. Working in tandem with area leaders, character witnesses, and the Committee of Magical Affairs in Enchantment, she hopes her case will go to trial. Will it end with a guilty or innocent verdict? Will the witch be burned at the stake, or will Lanara regain the status she once held in the realm?

Chapter Three: Speak The Truth, Even If Your Voice Shakes

Summary: After several months of community service in Enchantment, finding irrefutable evidence, and gathering friends and family to be character witnesses in the case of The Realm versus The Woodland Witch, the trial begins. Lanara slowly reenters society and works on repairing her friendships with those she holds dear to her heart. Conned into hosting the Halloween Ball, honored to officiate Khitti and Brand's handfasting, and discovering that she has a long lost daughter, the witch is faced with a multitude of emotions. She also realizes that she wants to survive and remain in the lands, more than ever, as she has questions that need answering, wrongs that need to be set right, and relationships that are irreplaceable. Will Lanara be proven innocent or guilty?

Chapter Four: Release The Past, Capture The Present, And Embrace The Future

Summary: After being cleared of all charges, Lanara enjoys some time with friends and family, and hopes to rebuild the life that she had before everything went haywire. The witch rejoined the ranks of the Adventurer's and Devout's Guild, and seeing as she relishes in making mischief, she finds herself easily recruited into the Rogue's Guild. Lana and Tiber take their relationship to the next level, and Penelope becomes a close friend to the witch. Callum gives Lana a job at his greenhouse, Taly hosts a Yule celebration, and the rose quartz skull is used to test Hudson's faithfulness to Alvina. Everything seems to be falling into a semblance of normalcy when a letter arrives from Natianara, stating that Lanara must drop everything at once and travel to her homeland of Kelvar. A virus has overtaken her homeland, the residents need a ruler, and they are desperate for a cure. Will the woodland witch purge the curse over Kelvar? Can Natianara and Lanara forge a close mother-daughter relationship? What will become of Tibara? Only time will tell, and it seems that time continues to slip through the hourglass with each passing moment...
