Lifemate BondEdit

Anne bonded for life with Er Thom yos'Galan

  • Er Thom is not a dramliza but for his ability to form a life-mate bond, but Clan Korval has produced numerous dramliz over the millennium, so it's in his blood, starting with his ancestor Tor An yos'Galan, who made love babies with a dramliza.
  • Anne is from the Terran world New Dublin and not a dramliza, but for her ability to form a lifemate bond
  • But Anne's gaffer / grandfather was a water-finder and her ancestors were fey.[4]

Discussion between Anne, Er Thom, Daav, Petrella, and Master Healer Kestra:

"Lifemates?" Petrella flung back with pain-wracked scorn. "Which of them is a wizard, pray?"

"Well, now, the gaffer, he was a water-witch," the tall lady said in a peculiar, lilting voice, a glimmer of half-wild humor lighting her pattern.

The Healer frowned after the sense of the words, feeling a similarity to Terran, but unable to quite —

"A water-witch," Korval murmured in Adult-to-Adult, "is one who has the ability to locate water below ground without use of instrumentation." He flicked a glance at the Terran lady. "Correct?"

She moved her head up and down—Terran affirmative. "He found other things, too," she said in accented, though clear, Liaden. "Lost sheep. Jewelry, once or twice. A missing child. But mostly he stuck to water." She shrugged. "If you listen to the talk on New Dublin, all the ancestors were-- fey, we say. It adds color to the family tree."

"You are yourself a wizard, then?" Petrella's voice was sharp.

The Terran lady shook her head. "No, a language professor."

"You know when the child wakes," the a'thodelm murmured from her side. "You know when I am troubled. I heard you calling me, from many miles away, and followed your voice."

"And yet neither are of the dramliz," the Master Healer said, firmly. [4]
