Ascian and the Portal of The Tribes Realm
He knows about Harry Potter and Percy Jackson as well. They are his inspiration in writing his own story. He’s never been to the UK or America and sometimes he dreams about going there one day and meet the two guys who inspire him.
His name is Ascian of the Tribes Realm. His story is originated from South East Asia – Philippines to be exact. From the southernmost region of the country where the Tribal people lives as of today.
This is his story.
The Matigsalog Tribe is on the brink of defeat by the Brigands. This is the last scene lingers in Malachi’s head before he escape in a secret portal to the human world. Cradling a baby in his arms, Ascian is the last heir from the union of the Matigsalog Chief’s daughter and the Baylan’s eldest son. A Baylan is the village Priest and a powerful healer who also has the ability to enter the Realm of the Gods and speak to them in a form of a lyrical poem called Limbag. They have the Fourth Eye gift, bestowed upon them by the Great God himself. This is one of the reasons why the boy Ascian has to be save. He is the Tribes Realm only hope. Malachi is the messenger warrior and Ascian’s protector. His mission is to protect the boy and bring him back to the Tribes Realm when the time comes. He swears to keep Ascian safe at all cost. It’s Malachi’s responsibility to teach Ascian everything about the tribal world but he needs to wait until Ascian is of the right age.
Ascian grew up in a normal family. He is a son that a parents can only dream of, a big brother to look up to and a friend to depend on. But when the reality of his Tribal roots start knocking at his door and the weirdness starts coming along with the mythical monsters he only read in comics, his regular teenage life turns upside down.
He just wants to be a regular boy but Malachi told him the truth that he’s more than just a regular boy but a Baylan Warrior. As the reality sunk in, Ascian and Malachi try their best to find the Portal to the Tribes Realm. But then they realize that the problem was bigger than they anticipate. They need help. As they went along, they find out that they are not alone in the fight.
Warriors from other tribes come to the rescue.
But the greater problem for Ascian lie ahead. Finding the Portal means leaving the life that he has in the human world. He loves his family and friends and leaving them requires a great sacrifice for him. But the Tribes Realm needs him. He wants to know where he came from – solving the mystery that is his life once and for all.
Will he ever make the sacrifice?
This is a story about great love for family which is one of the beautiful traits of Filipino people. A story about friendship and loyalty. But most of all, it is a story about self-acceptance – that knowing your true self and embracing your true identity will leads you to a greater adventure in life.
