Background: Let’s start a few generations back, okay? Raja Sarin was an honorable man, who wanted to make an honest living, so he sailed across the sea to America. There, he met a young woman who told him that the seventh son of his seventh son would bear a special child. When Raja tried to answer the woman, she disappeared.

Several years later, the seventh son of the seventh son was born, and his name was Ekram. He lived his life unknowing that there was to be a great honor put upon him. Ekram met a beautiful woman (not knowing she was the same who had given the prophecy) and fell instantly in love. He never dreamed that she would leave him… but she had to.

In a few months’ time, she returned to his door, though she knew he had taken up a new wife. The woman left an infant girl in a cradle of vines and lotus flowers. Ekram knew at once where the child had come from, being an avid reader of mythology, and could barely contain himself with joy. He and his wife, Chione, called the girl Aravind.

Aravind grew up happy. She had twin younger brothers (Damian and Amon) to play with, and many fine Indian clothes to dress in. When she turned ten, however, someone broke into the family’s house. She had been up doing a project for school about how some plants grow faster than others, checking her night-time growers. The burglar, she could’ve sworn, had only one eye. Her plants surrounded her and pushed the burglar (?) away. A feeling in her gut told her it was her fault- both the burglar and the plants.

She packed a small bag of clothing and food and left. Aravind went south, listening to the words of kind trees and flowers. Only a few monsters bothered her, because she didn’t even know who she truly was. All Aravind knew was to listen to the plants that pointed her to Long Island. She reached camp with no injuries and no satyr, no easy feat for a young demigod. Claimed the day she got there, Aravind has been welcomed into the world of myth become real~!
