The Trailokya Trilogy Companion is a continuing online manuscript that illustrates and explains some of the details of the story, helping readers to keep things straight while they travel through the series. Readers can view this live companion book on Wattpad (either using the website or an app for their phone) absolutely free.
The companion is organized in alphabetical sections for convenience. In each section, the entries are organized like a dictionary along with original artwork and excerpts from the Trailokya Friday blog posts. In the coming weeks and months the blog will feature specific entries, to give you a taste of what is available in the companion.
Also known as The Old man of Crete, this guardian was appointed with the task of watching the gate of Jahannam through the Domdaniel. Yahweh is consistently mistaken as the one God of several Earth Religions, and goes by several other names.
Just beyond the shores of Sheol, within the shallows of the Domdaniel, a great statue stands. The poison waters lap the beard of this figure, as a rush of water runs from behind the hands covering the closed stone eyes. The statue is full size, but the majority of it’s length is unseen beneath the depths. It is said it came to Jahannam in the days after the conflict, when the pit was sealed, and all the fallen were cast from the upper planes.
The figure is the likeness of Yahweh, a great leader among the duta, who sacrificed his position and life in Zion to stand guard over Jahannam. The stone is a kind of protective prison from the darkness, but over time it has still affected the guardian, eliciting tears, which created the Domdaniel.
The monument is an enormous depiction of the duta, possibly created to house him comfortably. Is it likely that he is still inside? Or is he using the object to remotely view the prisoners? A sort of watchtower.
Either of these is possible, but the truth is not to be discovered in the trilogy. Readers will have to theorize that for themselves. It does seem, regardless, that Zion is aware of the goings on inside of Jahannam, despite the seals. It is very unlikely that spies alone could achieve that level of detail. Perhaps, in later volumes, this topic may be explored further.
Until then, be sure to come back every month to learn something else about the series, and keep reading!
