Thelana is forced by her parents to leave from her home in Ilmarinen. Her younger sister, Britannia, does not understand why she must go, pleading that she remain.

Out of twelve children, they are the most alike, the closest of friends. They love to explore the riverbanks and surrounding woods, to climb trees and hills, neither afraid to get dirty. But despite not knowing where she will go or when she will return, Thelana realizes she must leave. Hunger is spreading across the land, and after her oldest brother is sold into slavery, she knows there is too little food for her and her siblings. Being the strongest and most capable in her family, she goes in search of civilization, with the hope of returning someday to save her people. 

Go to STORY MARKER (4B): Thelana 2010 (4B) 

The Ilm: The land and its people are named after the 'ilm', a flower with petals of orange and stamens of violet. Fields of ilms grow only in Ilmarinen, as seen here in the background. The flower possesses medicinal properties, and can be hallucinogenic if eaten, hence the "dream journeys" they regard as indistinguishable from reality.

Go to Thelana Leaves Home to read the complete chapter! CURSE YOU! Or better yet, pick up "Ages of Aenya" and read the whole story. GET IT HERE

Isn't there a rule against re-posting other peoples' artwork?

No, not if you own the piece. This was commissioned for me by the artist. I give credit to him.
