The third chapter of « 2206 : Window Onto A New World, » revolves around Aeira, a high profile soothsayer, often derided as a celebrity astrologer by her detractors.
As the narrative begins, the prophetess is enjoying post dinner conversations with three of her closest friends.
« The wise elder had understood a long time ago that, for the sake of being at peace with herself and her universe, to retain her sanity and preserve her integrity, it was essential for her to admit and own her supernatural gifts, as others were calling her prescience. Despite the ensuing ostracization, and the hurtful insinuations, accusations, and insults it frequently attracted her, she had gradually foregone all attempts at pretence, and decided instead to fully bloom into the spiritual adviser that she had always felt was latent within her. »
The influence the uncannily beautiful lady yields over her acolytes becomes obvious as the story progresses, hinting at her pivotal role in the Ovelian saga.
