Lexi Ander ~ Fal'Amorics, The Galaxies Best Kept Secret.

Fal'Amorics, The Galaxy's Best Kept Secret

Thank you Allison for having on the blog today! I thought I would talk about the Fal'Amorics, the race that Zeus descended from.
In Alpha Trine, we learn Zeus was not as human as many had thought him to be. With the restrictive ban on Terrens who travel through the galaxies, it wasn't surprising that Zeus was mistaken for human so often. When I was world building, I had to consider how many races would be able to identify the Fal'Amorics. Traditionally, their home was on Valespia, not becoming a nomadic people until thirty years before. From them came the Bespoken who formed part of the Triumphant that managed the grid. You would think that everyday people would know what the Fal'Amorics looked like, sense one was a Galactic Emperor.
What about how the race disappeared from their planet, with no one realizing they were missing until after the fact? How would galactic imperials go about locating a people who didn't want to be found? Could it even be done? How was it the humans could find the Fal'Amoric when the Galactic Emperors had trouble?
I had to consider. If all the people in the neighborhood down the road began to vacate, when would the average person notice? If a people in another part of the world, say the amazon, weren't heard from for a while, when would someone notice they were gone? What kind of news would it cause? Would the news reach my part of the globe? Are the farming people in the next galaxy over going to care?
The Fal'Amorics lived unobtrusively in their self-sustaining small communities in a jungle. Their royal family provides a Bespoken every three hundred years or so. Their foot print on the galaxy is small. They are unique in that they are blenders, carrying the DNA of more than one race. They are intersex, hermaphrodites, often born with both male and female sexual organs and selecting the pronoun they wished to be referred to as at a young age. They are also chimeras, where their children can have DNA from up to six separate parents... but these are not commodities they sell or even advertise. If they left over a period of time, with the help of others to hide their exodus, they could effectually disappear.
As for how the Terrens were able to systematically capture the Fal'Amoric, well, that's the Bespoken's story to tell, not Zeus's. :)
I hope you enjoyed this peek into the Valespia-verse and found it to be informative, insightful, and fun. Thank you for stopping by and reading!

About Striker

BLURB: The peaceful respite for which Zeus and his intended, Dargon and Alpha, had been hoping is shattered when Zeus is unexpectedly drawn to the Waters of Poseidon and told that the safety they’ve been promised is a trap. But the Fal’Amoric aren’t the only important cargo on the Oethra 7, and countless others are depending on the success of their mission. If Zeus hopes to break the silent siege on Valespia and protect those most precious to him, he will need not just powerful allies but the fortitude to survive overwhelming odds.

About Lexi Ander

Lexi has always been an avid reader, and at a young age started reading (secretly) her mother’s romances (the ones she was told not to touch). She was the only teenager she knew of who would be grounded from reading. Later, with a pencil and a note book, she wrote her own stories and shared them with friends because she loved to see their reactions. A Texas transplant, Lexi now kicks her boots up in the Midwest with her Yankee husband and her eighty-pound puppies named after vacuum cleaners.
