Behind the Book The Progenitor Chronicles
Background of the Planet Regvand:
Regvand is pronounced Reg-vand. The name litteraly means rain water. As its name suggests, it is a planet filled with water and aquatic life. If fact more than 90% of the planet is filled with either salt or fresh water. If you were to visit this beautiful blue planet, you’ll need underwater vehicles like a submarine. Why? Most of the cities are deep underwater.
This planet was inspired by several Star Trek planets and my husbands love of the beach. Regvand is very close to Xardenora because living things can't live without water and oxygen.
It is the closest habitable planet to the two suns.
The planet has a tropical climate. It is humid.
This planet was the first planet to be terraformed.
Small islands and small continents dot the surface of the planet.
Their buildings on the surface are made of various forms of rock with blue, silver, and opal being the dominate color.
The buildings in the depths of the oceans are built into rock and coral shelves. Each city is surrounded by a forcefield that keeps the water out, but allows Regvands and vehicles to pass through.
The main palace is located on the largest content near the equator. It is surrounded by soft white sand. It is rumored that a grove of Pluma trees were cultivated by the Crown Prince Darijus. They were a gift from his longtime friend the Crown Princess Xendara of Xardenora.
Regvands are an offshoot of Xardens that specialized in water manipulation.
Regvands spaceships are filled will enormous tanks of water that power its ships. These tanks include plants and animals.
The Regvands are even tempered, loving, and calm. When under pressure they usually have the ability to relax everyone in the room. But if provoked, they will defend the Six System's with their lives.
Regvands are not telepathic like their Xarden cousins. But they are empathic and can feel their emotions.
Regardless of rank, most Regvands wear the same grey tunic with a silver sun pin on the lapel. Their tunics are specially designed to remain dry underwater which allow them to swim for long periods of time. The only time they wear dress clothes is for state events, such as meetings with dignitaries and special occasions.
They follow the teachings of their ancestors called the Ancients. They honor the fact that the Xardens were placed in charge of the Six Systems. Many regularly visit Xardenora to commune with the large sentient Golden Wood trees.
Regvands are very close to Xardenora. They usually coordinate their missions with them and side with them during Planetary Counsel Meetings.
Many Progenitors from Xardenora choose to bond with someone from Regvand. This had led many to speculate about a secret alliance between the two planets.
Every seven thousand years, a person is born on Xardenora with the DNA of the ancient Progenitors. With these powers a Progenitor can manipulate any molecule in the Universe including time.
Once a Progenitor reaches adulthood their power becomes too great to contain inside them. Because of their unique physiology they can only bond with those who have the specific gene markers to be able to receive a portion of their powers.
Many Progenitor Companions have come from Regvand. One of the most notable is Lady Vandra the Progenitor Companion of the Progenitor Xandar.
Their bond to the Progenitor can become so great they mimic all their powers including manipulation of time. They are capable of opening up portals that allow them to not only travel through space, but also time.
Once the 7,000 years has passed, the Progenitor and Companion leave this plane of existence to live with the Ancients.
Golden Wood trees are said to play a role in the selection of the Progenitor and their future companion.

Time Crystal by Sara Wright

King Oren’s only goal was to be a peaceful caretaker of the galaxy. But when a girl falls through a portal into his courtyard clutching a forbidden Time Crystal, his life changes.
