Let’s get started!
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.
Red Corridor (n.) The second gate of Otzar.
Beyond the White Gate one will encounter a hall reminiscent of the splendid interiors of gothic cathedrals. Here, the snowy marble has turned alabaster. The ribbing above is fixed with crystal glass, allowing the viewer to peer up at the clear sky and the tip of Mount Zion, perpetual light streaming down. The length of the hall is marked by a luxurious garnet rug. The floor is of golden marble. A single lectern rests near the red gate.
At the far end rests a red door, and beyond that are the blue passages. This is the point where only virtues and dominions exist, but for the travelers they keep. The red gate is the last checkpoint before entering Otzar. It is guarded by a single Dominion. But anyone attempting to travel beyond the gate without that guardian’s permission would find a swift end to their trip. Though this guard is alone, his strength is formidable. There are only three races of duta stronger: seraphim, thrones, and cherubim. Even they would struggle to succeed in battle against the red door guardian. Dominions are specially trained for the task of protecting Otzar. The elite among them guard the red gate, as well as certain other areas of the passages beyond it.
Dominions are a secretive sect among the duta. Their ways are largely unknown to any others but the virtues, who are equally if not more mysterious. The secrecy around them is maintained to aid in their duties. Not even the generals are privy to everything that goes on within Otzar.
The purpose of the red gate is to bar the path to the perpetual light as well as Otzar to unauthorized personnel and travelers. Assigns are permitted past with their guardians only when entering into an indirect interface with an incarnating bio-vessel. The reaches of Otzar are considered top clearance level.
