The Mannamong Series
In a modern day world similar to ours, legends have been told of spirits called mannamong created by Mother Nature to guide and protect humanity. These stories were believed throughout the world until they faded into myths.
The mannamong continue to roam unseen by all except for one girl Kali Teal cursed with a rogue mannamong hibernating inside her. Under his control, Kali grows deathly ill and confused by the contradiction of mannamong born to help others.
Both sides interact with each other to the broader scope of the world-building and how it relates to the core conflict at hand. Which is humanity’s misguided judgement and how mannamong are suppose to guide and protect humanity.
Kali, as the main point of view, witnesses the events unfold with the viewers. Her attitude reflects her perspective and beliefs being challenged. Contradicting what she’s told, that mannamong helps humans, Tontorus enters and deteriorates her life based on his selfish goals.
Tontorus’s side of the story gives Kali access to witnessing the mannamong affairs as he’s an iconic figure in the mannamong world. His reputation and actions towards others draw in the core conflicts that she gets dragged into.
A old town enriched with the arts and was once an early settlement for colonials looking to mine rare and exquisite crystals for handsome profit. Now a tourist hotspot for its pristine display of these crystals throughout the mountains. Every year, there are festivals that celebrate artistic expression and the integrity of creativity. Kali and her mother live outside its vicinity, but are familiar with most of its residents.
Separating themselves from the mortal realm where humanity resides, mannamong take refuge in the spiritual realm. Only projections of one’s spirit drifted partially within their sleep, can mortals gain access to this dimension momentarily. But everyone will pass it off as a dream with their memories of the experience barely intact. The mannamong can travel between the two realms with ease and made the spiritual realm their home away from humanity’s touch in their sacred lands. Where they carefully lay out their plans in advancing human development.
Xemn is the ability to interact between spirits and mortals. By drawing out one’s own soul, it can be shape shift in a colorful aura to perform many supernatural feats. Such as turning it into aspects of nature like fire. Touching something not belonging to their world, as a spirit must use xemn to touch a human or wall without phasing through. And as a signal to draw one’s senses to the max, like noticing unseen spirits in the mortal realm.
