In the town of Ravenrock the residents tell the legend of a magician who once lived there. For you see, once upon a time, a magician named Amaya called Ravenrock home. Now, Amaya was a rare kind of magician, she drew her immense magical strength from her bond with her familiar. Her familiar was a pony named Celeste, who was rumored to be immortal.
Amaya and Celeste were well loved by the townspeople. They healed the sick, strengthen the crops, and brought smiles of joy and laughter to them. For many years Ravenrock prospered and the people lived in harmony. However, suddenly one day a stranger arrived. A tall man, shrouded in shadows. He demanded that Amaya leave Ravenrock and join his army of magic users. Amaya refused and in anger, the stranger attacked. Amaya and Celeste fled into the forest, attempting to lead the man away from their beloved town.
The stranger managed to strike Amaya with a blast of shadow and she fell from Celeste. Amaya convinced her loyal familiar to leave her and seek help. Celeste vanished and the stranger took Amaya away. The townspeople never saw Amaya, Celeste, or the stranger again. They never did learn who he was, what his goals were, or why he took their much loved magician away.
Years passed and several generations later the stories had faded into local legends, believed by few. However, unknown to the townspeople, Celeste was still nearby, searching for the one who could help her save Amaya. Celeste was determined to find her, the person who could help the magician’s pony.
