                                              Prologue: Silver Foxes

      An excerpt pieced together from the remains of Truths Behind the Legends: A dictionary of your favorite myths and the truths they were based on , a book found in Jelu shortly after its destruction.

     Sil[ver F]oxes: n. refers to a race of [foxes] who  . . . silver in color  . . . entries in  . . . and myths. Most common reference in f[airy tales], usu.  . . . beautiful princess . . . a Silver Fox . . . her rescue

     The Myth: Long ago when the universe was young, the planet Clorth stood on the brink of destru[ctio]n.  [The inhabitants] were found guilty of treason [against the gods] . . . [but] the wise man, Deedanus, appeased the gods by offering to them any one thing  . . . desired. Flousa, the goddess of nature, chose for herself a certain flower . . .  deemed worthy. Disutrine, god[dess of be]auty, reserved the right to choose any man or woman, boy [or girl] to serve  . . . [in] her temple. Ham[atan, god of war], choose the iron smithies  . . . weapons were made. All the gods and goddesses chose . . . except Rophim, [god of storms], king of the gods. He found nothing to appease him . . . [and vowed to] destroy Clorth . . . [if he] could not be appeased by  . . . moon rose over the mountain o[f the go]ds, a thing that happened once [a year].

     [A year passed and] he found nothing to appease him . . . [As] Rophim walked through the woods on the east of the river Gordón . . . he came upon a beautiful vixen . . . [her]bs in the woods. His heart burned . . . he saw her . . . took on the form [of a] fox, and . . . wo[oed] her . . . and took her to be his bride, and . . . was appeased.

      The vixen conceived  . . . [and gave birth to] a son, Thrort . . . born with fur ma[de of] silver, and . . . unable to control storms . . . [a]ble to fly, shoot lightening from his fingers, and deflect projectiles. He roamed the land righting wrongs and defeating monsters.

     Time passed and his mother grew old. Rophim . . . [brought her] a fruit that grew on the mountain of the gods. One bite would make her immortal . . . tried to get Thrort, her [son], to eat, but he refused . . .[instead chose to] marry and live among mortals. So Thrort . . . [begat] a son, [ano]ther Silve[r Fo]x.

      . . . Silver Fo[xes] became numerous on Clorth. Some were noble, but far more used [their powers for evil pur]poses. Rophim saw this and cursed the line of Thrort . . . [All foxes in his] line were born gray, and only if they proved themselves  . . . [regained] the powers of Thrort.

[Explan]ation: Few . . . [believe] Silver Foxes actually existed. Those that do claim . . . were nothing more than . . .

To Part I

I uploaded this earlier in the day, and it wouldn't show up. So I'm trying again.

approx. length: 1 page

Edit: Just trying to figure out how to get the correct formatting on the last line.
