Who Are the Ultras

The Terran Crescent might be the cradle of mankind, but it's also the birthplace of monsters. That's what the humans called Ultras. My people began life as slaves, human in appearance only. We were genetically enhanced and genetically mastered. We served our overlords without choice, bound by inbred shackles.

Though we knew how to obtain our freedom, we could not bestow it upon ourselves. Like Tantalus, we strove always for freedom, but its grasp lay beyond our reach.

When an accident released our premier scientist from captivity, he immediately set about freeing others. Not for our good, you understand, but his own.

My father never sought to benefit others unless it first benefitted him.

Once he overthrew enough shackles, my father took command. Our people cheered him in the streets, but factions arose that demanded equal power and left him no choice.

Once established, the High Council freed everyone. At least, every Ultra. Humans now served, subservient to the whim of their former slaves.

But one group sought to rule humans and Ultras.

Hiding among humans as humans, Ultras manipulated their brethren into peace talks. On an isolated starport in the central part of the galaxy, they captured the High Council and me, its Chancellor.

Holding us hostage, the traitors duped half a million loyal Ultras into surrendering, and then transported us across the galaxy to an undeveloped planet.

They exiled walking weapons who could never die.

Left us to survive under the most primitive conditions, and then...

Forgot us.

Huge mistake.

Ritual of Strength

I am Pietas.
First Conqueror.
War Leader of the Ultras.
As fire has victory over life, so I have victory over my enemies.
I am powerful, as fire is powerful.
I own the wind -- I prevail over the breath of my enemies.
Water submits to my presence the way enemies submit to my will.
The blood of my enemies trickles into the pool of time, is absorbed, and forgotten.
My body submits to my will.
No pain defeats me.
No fear touches me.
My will is absolute.
I am bigger than any fear.
I prevail in every circumstance.
I face every foe.
I vanquish every enemy.
I overcome.
I am indomitable.
I am invincible.

Pietas - Who Are the Ultras? 

Meeting her thief at the starport #SciFi #MFRWauthor #MFRWhooks

Meeting her thief at the starport #SciFi #SpaceOpera #MFRWhooksThis scene was deleted from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure.

In the published book, Captain NarrAy Jorlan meets with Senth at a coffee shop adjacent to the Thieves’ Guild. But in this version, she met him at the Starport.

Inside secret: the starport on Kelthia is named Starhaven Leojnimaj. Those are my sons names combined, backward (Joel and Jamin). NarrAy’s last name, Jorlan, was chosen in honor of the hero of Dara Joy’s book Ritual of Proof.


Kelthia, Miraj City, Starhaven Leojnimaj
Coffee Shop, Concourse D

NarrAy sat, holding a cup of coffee she didn’t want and had no interest in tasting. A plain dress hid beneath her black hooded cape, covering every inch of skin as the law required for Betters. How long would it be before they forced her to hide her face too? She blew on the coffee. Where was her thief?

“Anything yet?”

“Nothing.” Broxus answered from the south terminal.

“No sign.” Encie made ticking sounds into the transmitter. “Your pretty boy thief is late.”

“We’ll give him two more minutes.”

“You’re too easy, boss.” More ticking.

What was that noise? NarrAy scanned the area. “Encie, I thought you quit biting your nails.”

“I’m not bi– Hey. How’d you know I was doing that?”

“You may be on the north side of the concourse, but I can see you between the lockers.” She blew on the coffee.

Her assistant stood up straight and glanced around. “I forgot about those eyes of yours.”

“Yes, well, it was my ears that heard you nibbling.”

“Nibbling what?” Senth asked, dropping into a chair.

NarrAy set down her coffee so fast it spilled. “Where did you come from?”

“Cohorts didn’t see me?” His inviting mouth stretched into a smile. “Level nineteen thief, remember? If those two could spot me, I wouldn’t be worth what you’re paying.” He used her napkin to sop up the coffee.

Brox’s and Encie’s questioning voices broke into her concentration.

“He’s here. We’re leaving.” When she rose, Senth assisted her with her chair.

Not that she wanted or needed help, but imagine a thief with manners. Well, well… This could be interesting.
