♦Welcome to another edition of the Open Book Blog Hop!♦
Your characters have been placed in Witness Protection. What three truths about themselves do they want to keep?
Welcome back to another edition of the Open Book Blog Hop! The authors included in this ongoing series wish to thank you for your reads. We appreciate, even more so, when you share our writings with your friends. If you’re new to the series, welcome aboard. The authors engage and impress weekly. Prepare to become a regular reader.
Most of my characters have something to hide, just like your average person. The hardest part about forming an answer to this week’s question is choosing who to speak about it. I don’t want to choose the obvious character. I also don’t want to choose one of my commonly written of characters. Lastly, I don’t want to spoil any of the books for those who have yet to read them.
Consider this your warning that there are spoilers ahead…
Let’s step over to the world of Trailokya. From our comfortable spaces, we pass into Zion and the Cloisters where the powers reside. The sprawling white compounds with their ornate ivory screens hide many secrets. The powers are a private race of duta. Even the armor the guardians among them wear is veiling.
One power in particular would like to be more private than most. Upon his return from Earth, Oraiel was rewarded with full reinstatement to his rank and duties. This former moon guardian had become recidia for many centuries after The Conflict. The facts surrounding his fall and subsequent stay among humans is a confidential matter on record with high security alders.
Oraiel would probably want it known who his brother is, in order to protect anyone serving with him, or in his sphere. The things he would not want getting out are not necessarily his secrets, but maneuvers he has been closely involved in. One secret above all else is the nature of Captain Maiel’s ketu. The second is the identity of his assign at the end of the 20th Century, beginning of the 21st century. The next would be what he knows of the Illuminati, UWOS, and Magnus Castle.
It was fitting that Oraiel disguised himself as a man of the cloth while bidding his penance. He is a reflective individual, one who does not waste words, and is likely not to speak at all. When he does speak, he is careful and persuasive. Oraiel is wise. His clear sight is from the perspective of that which is written, and thus he is able to discern with great accuracy the outcomes of the future. This, too, may be something he’d like to keep under wraps. This ability would be of great worth to those in power in Samsara. However, Oraiel would not wish to become the tool of any soul. It would mean betraying the dharma of others, which is a grievous, cancerous act to commit.
It would be quite a feat for any law enforcement to keep Oraiel in witness protection, due the nature of what he is and thus the secrets he keeps.
Let’s hop on over to find out what secrets the other characters are keeping in the books of my fellow authors. Click on the links below to continue the hop, and thank you for stopping in to read.

Lyndell Williams says
Great post. It’s tough for secret keepers to be vulnerable.
Captain Maiel says
And so powerfully vulnerable, too.
P.J. MacLayne says
Unless you figure his solitary nature would make it easier. Have him placed in a monastery where all the monks hold to a vow of silence, and he could hide for a long time.
Captain Maiel says
😀 You’d have to read it. He has been placed similarly, but those seeking him–there are few walls that can keep them out.
