The young maiden Marella was born to the island of Wraidd Elfennol, a place balanced by the four elements of nature - Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The essence of each element was contained in sacred artefacts ensuring the balance of life.
Every year, people from across the island gathered for the Summer Solstice. It was at this celebration that the Lords and Ladies of Wraidd Elfennol made an astounding announcement. The sacred artefacts had gone missing. They then proclaimed that four people, one linked to each element, had been selected to restore the balance.
Marella and her otter Nixie, her life partner, were chosen because of their link to the element of Water. Along with her, three others were chosen, each one in-tune to a different element.
The four companions, along with their animal partners, must embark on a quest, to either find and return the missing artifacts or somehow create new ones before the next Summer festival.
Failure is not an option or the world as they know it, will cease to exist.

“Wow, you really know how to get the party started,” said a voice mockingly from nearby.
As Marella looked around she saw a man leaning on the tree next to them. They had been so engrossed with what Lani was saying; none of them had noticed him standing there. He was quite tall and well-built but lean, with dark brown hair that was short and spiky and deep brown eyes. He was leaning back with one knee bent up, his foot resting against the trunk, and his arms were folded across his chest.
He cocked an eyebrow sardonically at Marella as she looked at him. “Have you seen enough now?” he asked.
Marella felt a slight glow on her cheeks as she looked away.
He pushed himself away from the tree and sauntered over to them. He sat down with his legs folded and gave them all a sarcastic smile.
“Who are you?” asked Daren calmly. He didn’t like how this stranger had interrupted them, but he thought he might have some idea as to who he might be.
“I’m Kai and I complete this little… circle,” he said, moving his finger around. “I’m Fire.”
“You mean you represent Fire,” said Marella, lifting her face slightly into the air.
“No, little girl, I mean I am Fire so you’d better make sure you don’t get burnt,” Kai answered her.
To his surprise, Marella burst out laughing. “Oh please, do you practice saying that to get the ultimate effect?” she chuckled.
