Following the Great Cataclysm, the Second Age of the ancient world began. It was a time of great change and turmoil. A time when demons rose up from the ashes of their fallen lord’s kingdom to claim inheritence, and the cities of Men and Dwerrows were built upon the ruins of the previous age, whilst the Elves secluded themselves, and the Giants dwindled in number.
At the dawn of this age, certain cults of Man unnatural abilities through controversial rituals by mysterious beings. Greatest amongst these cults were pyromantic order of the Firekeepers of Vishnaral, they who protected and had nursed the First Flame, sacred gift of the gods, back to health after its near estinguishing in the First Age.
Yet as the Second Age drew to its close, and a new shadow rose in the North to wage war upon the world, the city of Vishnaral fell, and with it the Firekeepers and the Sacred Fire went out.
It was not long after that Chadhiyana appears in the histories of that time. Dark, beautiful, and fierce, she tread the world beneath her sandaled feet, fighting the spreading corruption and helping those in need. Her motivations were a mystery, but the scars on her body told tales of hardships and abuse. Most notable were Chadhiyana’s eyes, eyes not seen since before the fall of Vishnaral: the bold, fire-ringed eyes of a Firekeeper.
The Chadhiyana comic series tells the story of this formidable yet controversial heroine against a dark fantasy setting inspired by the cultures of South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa.
