Malusai the Fallen Trumpeter
Malusai is the fallen trumpeter. She is chief of the Malun and leader of the throne hall rebellion.
Before her fall Malusai was a powerful Aerinel of wondrous beauty named Daveni. Of all the Aerinels she was Eleshedai’s most favored. The sound of her trumpet was joyous to Eleshedai’s ear. When her trumpet sounded it’s wondrous notes echoed beautifully in the throne hall of The Lord Eleshedai in the Kingdom Most High. When the trumpet sounded all of the Aerinel turned to the throne and sang praise to Eleshedai and to His Son Eleyesua and the seven Spirits of Holiness.
Eventually Daveni being favored by her Lord became prideful. Her music sounding in her ear became a tune of self praise. She became jealous of Eleshedai’s greatness and envied the praises the other Aerinels poured out to Eleshedai. She came to love herself far more than she loved Eleshedai. She came to hate the men, elves, dwarves and other folk of His creation, for He loved them more than the Aerinel, He caused the Aerinel to serve those little things whom she found small and worthless. He loved them more than he loved her! She altered the form of her music and added deceitful words into the trumpets sweet notes and seduced other Arienel to worship her. She offered whispered praises to those who would worship her and filled them with pride. She thought her deeds were done in secret and that her Lord knew not of her plans but, nothing is unseen by Eleshedai.
Soon Daveni’s followers grew to such a number that she was confident enough to go to war against Eleshedai and the faithful Aerinel. It was a vain attempt and the war’s futility was instantly evident.
Daveni and the rebellious Aerinel stormed into the great throne hall but were stopped in their tracks by one word from Eleshedai. “Hold!” her Lord called out. Daveni and her cohorts could not move. In that instant Daveni knew she was undone and the bitterness of her hatred for all things holy and for Eleshedai grew tenfold.
Eleshidai ordered his magister Verit to bind them and cast them into Tenebrei. Verit brought forth great gleaming chains of adamantine and mithril. Each of the traitors was bound in an adamantine chain and shackled. Then the mithril chains were wrapped around the group of traitors. When the binding was done Eleyesua stood and called to Verit, “Cast down the unfaithful and bar the entry of the Most High Kingdom from them!” Eleshedai and the Seven Spirits agreed. “Our Word is true for we are One.” They said.
The faithful Aerinel sang out in unison, “Your Word is true for You are One!”
Verit grabbed up the bundle of traitors as if they were a great stone. Daveni and her cohorts sought to struggle against his might but the chains held true for they were forged in the fires of virtue. With a great heave Verit cast them down to Therizoth, through the fiery pit of Insiidis and into the under realm of Tenebrei.
As the rebellious Aerinel were cast down Eleshedai called after her “Be gone from My presence Malusai!” And hence that has been the name of the rebel leader and her followers are now called Malun because of their treachery.
