So, you've made it this far, have you? It takes dedication to find this page hidden deep within the Tagonist Knights Website.

Congratulations! 

The crew of the Starship Sunfire is starting their maiden voyage after its reconstruction. Dryad and Brent wish to visit their respective home worlds with Hallie joining them. Gold attempts to help Parallax with the psychological damage done to her by the Oria, not knowing that the last among them is lurking in the synthetic woman's mind. Lexia and Glen are provided information concerning where her mother may be leading them to visit an unexplored planet. Before she leaves, she promotes Tedorn to acting captain in her absence. This leads to Ter as second in command. What could go wrong?

“Those that first stepped on board the Sunfire has changed, grown, developed, and become someone different than who they once were.” - Parallax

“You just overly simplified one of the greatest events to occur in this Universe into a single sentence.” - Eve

Origin Story:
Ah'va ik'ti.

The concept for this novel was playing around in the mind of the author for several years. After Tinker's Treasure, the idea of a character's name in addition to a descriptive word as potential titles led to the idea of Tedorn's Tales. A play on the word tails in that he has a tail. Beyond the title, not much was created for the story other than a random thought of, "What if Tedorn was put in charge as captain of the ship for one reason or another?"

Tedorn's Tales was originally meant to be the 6th book in the series but with Rua'So'Nid's Return expanding into a two-part narrative, that was pushed back. Inspiration was drawn from both the anthology concept of Gnowing Knowing with a series of short stories as well as the idea of a split novel that was used in the two stories format of the Twin Flame novel.

Tedorn's language has been slowly developed since its introduction in the Lexia's Legacy, the first in the series. Originally, he spoke broken English, but the author was inspired to start creating a unique language for him. As the series has progressed, his vocabulary has grown and the idea of presenting a way for an audience to learn his language surfaced. So, when a novel was going to be named after the Nimrev, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to help a reader to not learn how to speak the way he does or at least translate what he says.

As development of the novel progressed, there was space remaining after aligning translation of what was conveyed in the story. So, the author used this to not only teach what was being said but delving into the origins and deeper psychological and emotional development of acting captain Tedorn.

The author intended even back then that it was the daughter of Dryad from the future. However, later, the author used the same name for a goddess in the Human Born series. At the time, he didn't plan for Dryad to travel between realities until later in the series, Dryad's Dream. Are they the same woman? No. However, to resolve this lingering unresolved plot element, Gaia reveals at the end of the book, Garden of Gaia, that she met Dryad during her time as a Tagonist Knight. That inspired her to create a race of plant people. In turn, this finally resolves who Gaia was that Lexia met. Dryad's daughter is named after the goddess that she became friends with and aided in the Human Born series.
