Aconni, the revenger
It starts hundreds of years ago, when in hands of travelling healing wizard father rose a young sorceress, who was in short called Aconni. She was eager to learn and go in her father’s footprints, so during their long travels from kingdom to kingdom, she used her time to learn new techniques and skills. Once the father was curing a prince whose skin burns were difficult to heal cause of the magic of dragon who attacked him. The father asked for kings permission to get and use the books or necromancer magic, as he could not save the burnt skin with healing magic alone. The cure was indeed found there, but left the prince with pale, grayish and slightly scaly skin. So there was much rejoice and the king made a three day feast for all his Borderland kingdom. While the kingdom went into a celebration, Aconni found the book of necromancer magic and was overwhelmed of what she learnt. In her mind, her healing powers could surpass what any healer can do, she wondered, why had no healer ever tried this. With the powers of healing and death combined, she felt she could be able to give the old and weak a new breath, restore youth, and revive the dead… It would bring so much joy and peace in this world, she wondered.
The book was given back, but Aconni never forgot what was written in there. She started to seek and store rare plants and minerals in their travel, noted down recipes for potions, she trained herself to restore withering flowers to blooming ones, to make flies, who had died from heat or hit, fly again. Aconni soon began to revive small animals, like birds and mice, who with her brace magic could run, fly, sneak, crawl or swim away again, even if they didn’t look quite as before.
Soon her and her father’s ways went different directions, Aconni travelled around. She dared not reviving human or elf yet, but would help the old drop a few ages and feel stronger again.
Word spread fast, and there was a king from a wealthy chosen kingdom, who didn’t want the word to spread. He needed all her healing powers for himself instead. So he sent his spies to talk the sorceress into coming to his castle.
Once Aconni came, king Huma talked her into staying in his castle for a few years, in return or giving her access to all books in his library. She took the offer and had to cure the king or his closest figures. The king also asked her to provide him his youth, so his reign would run longer.
Jealousy grew within the older healers that now got less recognition from king. And it grew ever stronger, when the queen was once attacked and killed by opponents. The king begged Aconni to help her, even when everyone saw she is dead. Aconni told the king to leave her with the corpse of the queen. It was done, and Aconni set stones on the queens body, poured blood-coloured potion in her cold lips and revived her with the powers of necromancers magic. The queen took deep breath and opened eyes. She was much paler than before, but she was alive. The king was extremely happy, but the other healers in the castle trembled in hatred now.
A few months later, word by word, the king got convinced that the sorceress was a threat, not a blessing. One morning the king called her in as if he had gotten a bit sick, but instead he captured her in empty room and told that she would be executed that evening.
Aconni was in shock and felt betrayed . Because she had used dark magic, she couldn’t control her hatred now, so she cursed herself with strongest curse she knew, she cursed that she will kill the one who caused her death and obtain the weapon which they use to kill her, and only then she would find peace. It was the curse of revenge.
That evening they tied her hands and legs, put on a blindfold, brought her in front of public, and pushed her into a cage of deathly snakes. The bites of the startled snakes took over her blood too fast, and she felt the life fading away, bringing only pain.
In fear, her corpse got buried outside kingdoms gates.
But that midnight, Aconni opened her eyes again, as the curse started to work. The earth parted and she climbed out, pale and filled with rage. She went to the castle again, taking life out of everyone who was in her way. Every arrow that hit her got pushed out of her skin, and the life power that she took from the people in way healed her flesh. People hid in fear of their lives and fearing the terrible creatures she made them to see, that didn’t even exist.
She got to the kings chamber and took his life. All the age that her healing magic had given, faded, until there were only clothes left.
She took them as a trophy and fled the castle before sunrise, in hopes of eternal peace now.
But the curse stated that she needed to kill the person and obtain the weapon, but no weapon was used to destroy her, but creature. Yes, sometimes curses are too literal. So she was stuck in her dark, lifeless existence, with obsession of poisonous snakes and giving nightmares and diseases.
It was thought to be a story with moral to young healers who has only begun mastering their arts, but recently some had found a strange cave, where so many poisonous snakes were found…
