Trynda here, today I’m bringing you a Manuscript Chat talking about a character of mine named Lilith.
For those of you who’ve watched my other videos, you’ll know I’m working on a collection of short stories for NaNoWriMo called Lost To The Seams and this short story collection is actually around Lilith. So, I thought that this would be a good time to talk about her.
So, let’s get into it then.
Lilith is actually part of the race of Elohim and she’s most well known among them for being the creator of what’s called the Soul Basins. I won’t get into it too much in this video but the basic concept of a Soul Basin is a device that lets you put a soul into a vessel in the celestial plane. So, Lilith is actually very popular among the Elohim because of the soul basins and these soul basins are integral to creating the messengers which are the primary companionship for the Elohim.
Lilith is very unique within her race because she’s known as the first of the betrayed when the great betrayal happened and the rest of her kind was essentially wiped out. She was tricked into making a dagger for the main antagonist of On Fallen Wings and in doing so, invoked the bindings which are a set of universal rules that cannot be broken by any creature in the universe.
What happened when she invoked these laws, during a ritual that she didn’t realize had the consequences it did, imprisoned her and basically punished her for breaking the rules.
She’s also very unique in the sense that she broke out of this prison when no one thought that that was possible and she ended up actually ripping herself into the mortal plane which was also believed to be impossible because one of the bindings is, an Elohim cannot set foot in the mortal plane.
So, the short stories that I’m working on kind follow Lilith through how she’s handling being in prison and breaking through.
What Lilith has to do once she’s on the Mortal Plain is get used to the passage of time and really get used to being immortal in a place where she’s not meant to be and the whole time, she just wants to get back to her home in the Celestial Plain and she kinds of struggles along the way until she finds Lucifer and Paimon and learns that there has been been a celestial war and that the messengers have fallen and everything has basically gone to shit since she fell to the mortal plane just as the messengers did.
Without Lilith, there was no way that Lucifer and Paimon would have been able to bring Larathel back and set the plains right again. It would have just been out of their comprehension and they just didn’t have the skill set necessary to perform the ritual.
So she’s a character that’s meant to be a very mentoring role but she’s very anti social especially after she’s betrayed and she doesn’t really like interacting with too many because she’s very untrusting and I understand why so because she was tricked by one of her own kind that she trusted. So, she’s got trust issues for sure.
