Bite of Story Thursday

And we're back to preview day on Bite of Story Thursday! I'm working on Myths with quite a bit of the rough draft still waiting to be written. I'm just over half a book on the page so there is lots to go. Remember, this is from the rough draft so it does not reflect the final product. Anyway, sit back and enjoy...


“Time to roast a few creeps,” Lyndi said as she attempted to move forward. 

Celeste held her arm, “Wait.  Look what they’re doing,” she pointed at one goblin that wore what looked like a crown made from bone.  It climbed upon the table and rose up at tall as it could, waving its scrawny arms to get the crowd’s attention.  They were chanting something in a foreign tongue but once the single goblin raised his arms they became instantly silent.

The single goblin said something with determination.  Eli shared a look with his companions when the name ‘Brimstone’ was mentioned. 

“It’s hard to imagine they still worship him after what he did,” Frunz whispered.  “Good thing the creep is still locked up on Prison Island.”

The lead goblin began to chant the word ‘crum’ over and over.  The others echoed it until the entire meeting hall hummed with the word. 

Flitty stopped screaming and had the peace of mind to respond, “Look guys, as I said before, you don’t really want to do this.  I’m just a small fairy.  Not really worth all this fuss.  How about instead you just untie me and we can all sit around and sing songs by a camp fire?  Wait.  What you got there?”  Her bright yellow aura caused several goblins to shield their eyes.

The lead goblin raised a silver dagger with a wooden hilt.  It seemed to be the only weapon among them and it was pretty clear what he intended to do with it.

Who's Who in the Annabelle Universe? Dagda


No picture at this time. Hopefully that will change someday.

Name Origin

Irish Gaelic name meaning "the good god." In Celtic mythology, this is the name of a god of knowledge and magic, and a leader of the Tuatha Dé Danann, supernatural beings who inhabited Ireland prior to the coming of the Celts.

Physical characteristics:
Dagda appears as an old Irishman, bald with a thick white beard with black streaks on both sides. He's a bit winded from centuries of battle but otherwise in good shape. Always seen garbed in a dark green hood and cloak.

Very kind and willing to help others if needed. He is determined to stand in the way of Lord Domi and his evil. Passionate about standing up for what is right, no mater the cost.

Dagda is a High Mage of the ancient Order of the White Warlocks.  He has practiced white magic for centuries and has a number of powerful spells at his fingertips.

Known History:
Dagda was an apprentice to the great warlocks during the Exodus War. He was there during the Farnalla Exodus and elected to stay behind to protect the in-between years. 

He’s the High Mage of the North American Coven. He migrated to North America to watch for the "prophesied younglings". While most forgot the prophesy, he still believed it.
Despite the fact that the Coven have always acted as police to the magic world, most white warlocks and witches remain in hiding. Hunted by Dominic’s forces for centuries, they operate in super secret covens across the globe. No more than three in each group and always on the move, Dagda keeps them organized and hidden. He marshals their forces across the globe to constantly block Domi's attempts to take over the world. They regularly work with the prophetic Falabranwyn.
