Pyrophoric

The Elementals have ruled over the land of Daevarith for all of kingdom's recorded history. The Fire Elementals hold strong to the top of the social hierarchy; followed by their counterparts, the Water Elementals; then the Earth; and finally, Air. Those deemed powerless by Placement, a team funded by the Daevarithian government to place each person in their proper class, fall to the very bottom of the chain and are called Blanks.

Fourteen year old Arcana Mason, a Firehead as they are not so endearingly called, was born to two of the highest regarded Fire Elementals in all of the land and has lived a life of ease and luxury. The best food, the best clothing, the best education- only the finest things in life, and they're simply handed to her on a shiny silver platter.

Yet when she and her private tutor, an Earth Elemental named Gilligan Troye, make a discovery while analyzing an old Blanks census run by Placement itself, privileged Arcana will stop at nothing to discover the meaning behind their findings, even if that makes her a target for those dedicated to keeping the secret hidden... Even if it means loosing the lavish lifestyle she's always known.

What if the whispers are all true? What if the old folk legends aren't as fantastical as they might have seemed? A power much greater than even that of those with Fire talents may be lurking in the shadows of the impoverished, the powerless, and Arcana is determined to find it regardless of the costs.

1. Extended Description

A/N: Pyrophoric is loosely inspired (very loosely inspired by the pancha mahabhuta (the 5 great elements of Hinduism), and they are the basis on which I built this magical world. So, without further ado, the extended summary.

Fire burns, destroys the land. Air caresses where sky meets sand. Water washes away our sin. Earth lie strong, our nation's skin. But deep in the shadows, a power creeps. The Void it is called, and many secrets it keeps.

Cover for Pyrophoric made by moi! It may not my finest creation, but there's still something about it that I like... Take into consideration that I'm not much of a cover maker. But anyhow, I hope you enjoy this story! (:
