It’s been a while since I’ve given you more inside information about the world of Elithius. Today, I want to share with you a concept and a “species” I made up that ties in with that concept.
What’s a heyndai?
Basically, a heyndai is a manifestation of yourself…but a manifestation of the version of yourself that you think you’ve always wanted to be. Thus, your heyndai contains and fulfills every desire you’ve ever had for yourself. Everything you’ve dreamed of being–your appearance, your social status, your skills, your level of intelligence–is encompassed in your heyndai.
Your heyndai can only be seen by you; only you yourself will ever experience it. It is something that you must encounter directly through your mind–in a dream or a vision, for example. So, technically speaking, your heyndai isn’t even real! It is purely the product of your imagination and your views of yourself and the world around you.
Sounds pretty neat, right?
The problem is, what if your desires aren’t pure? What if you’ve always dreamed of being beautiful, and your heyndai makes people divorce their spouses for you? What if you’re tired of being bullied, and wish to become the bully? What if your idea of being perfect is flawed?
The problem with heyndai is that it’s an alluring, captivating version of yourself. So you are always trying to become your heyndai…and you can!
You just have to forsake your soul to do it.
That’s right. Allow yourself to be consumed by the idea of becoming your heyndai, and that’s exactly what will happen: you’ll be consumed.
This whole concept of heyndai and whether they are good or bad is very significant in Elithius. Should we try to become heyndai? Do we desire to become something pure? If your heyndai is what you’ve always wanted to be, do you even know what it is you actually want to be? How well do you know your desires?
These are the struggles of John Hedekira as he begins to make contact with his heyndai.
Deep questions, right?
But then, that’s Elithius for you!
