Rïden, Netra, and The Bleeding Chair

•Ishan Project: 179/186•

Day 6 of 10 for the Recap of the Ishan Project’s first 6 months.



In the year 1629,  Rïden is saved by an older gentleman from India. He forms a close bond with him and his blind daughter, Netra. When Chûndra and the Tritons learn of Rïden’s whereabouts they go to the older man’s home to capture him. Rïden flees, but leaves the old man to fend for himself and his young daughter. The older man dies while protecting his daughter and  keeping Rïden’s location secret. Rïden, feeling completely shamed, gather’s the strength to confront and apologize to the daughter. As a gift, he systematically constructed a chair out of his own limbs. This chair would eventually restore her vision. He decides to stay knowing the Tritons would return. After some time she’s able to forgive him, taking into consideration his guilt and that he was a changed man. They fell in love and eventually married.

A few times the Tritons, BFC, and Chûndra try to overtake their family, but to no avail. Chûndra was frustrated immensely. In addition, her appetite for power mushroomed after witnessing Rïden’s wife, Netra, wield new magnetic abilities she received from her husband. At that point, Chûndra becomes obsessed with finding out how to get this power from the Ishan for her own personal agenda.
