Introduction: Light the Way
“Experimentation is like fishing: you never know what you are going to catch.” She pulled the lever and electricity ran wild through the circuit until it reached her new masterpiece. She cut the current and picked up her staff, it was fully charged and ready to use. Electricity glowed at its tip and its design matched her goggles very well too. It was the perfect choice for the discerning scientist. She left her lab and, after all the locks were in place and the door unshakable by any mortal means, she started to walk around the city with her glowing staff.
Given the pollution and lack of proper light in most streets the staff’s electric light ended up being surprisingly practical. She walked towards the sea but there was little to see between the corrosive fluids cleaning the waters and the darkness ever encroaching on the city. She turned to return when someone asked: “Choose a card and see what becomes of you, would you?” The short man was cleanly even if whimsically dressed with bi-colour hair and a permanent, unnatural smirk that, added to his colourful clothes, made him look like a buffoon.
“No thanks, maybe another time.” “But this may be your last chance, Miss.” She didn’t like the tense tone in his voice, the lingering air of menace. She looked him straight in the eye, unblinking and glassy, his face stayed immobile like a mask. She strengthened the power on her staff and moved it forward: the features got clearer and the spell was broken. It was actually a mask and the clothes a costume in imitation of the controversial court jester. The teenager ran away, half-blinded by the light, without looking back. Aristocrats were setting a bad example with their dangerous competitive impulses and worse yet: they were making followers.
