#24 – Nakimera Somersby

| November 30, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Pleiatic Seers are a group of the seven most powerful and pure oracles in the world.  Once every thousand years seven seers are chosen to be part of the creation of a set of prophesies for the next one thousand years. The gathering is called the Prophesy of the Whole and is held on the summer solstice.  The ruling constellation of the ceremony is the Pleiades for mythological reasons (the original seers were the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades, hence the name Pleiatic Seers.)  The event is signaled by the birth of a child that contains all seven of the oracle powers – Sight, Touch, Smell, Head, Heart, Spirit-Light, and Blood, who is known as the Pleiona (the mother of the Pleiades in the myth) who is in charge of choosing and gathering all the seers together.  It can take years to find the right ones and then wait for the ages to align corrects – each seer must be a virgin woman between the ages of 7 and 49 (7 years apart each), with a single, specific, and powerful oracle ability.

Naki is the second oldest and the third to be discovered, at age 33.  She was born in Nigeria to a woman who was raped by a local sorcerer.  There was a distant history of powerful seers but none recently.  Naki’s mother, Kia, was saved from humiliation and exile by a kind-hearted gay peace-corps man who married her and took them both to America.  He and Kia both hid their “shame” from the world until they came to the mutual realization that there was nothing be ashamed of for either of them. The strength they found in each other they passed on to Naki who became a Civil Rights Activist.  When her powers became obvious her parents searched for someone to teach her how to use them.

When the magic world became alive with the news of the Pleiona having been found, her mentor demanded she be tested and that’s how she was chosen.

One word to describe her: Unafraid
