Tel'Lus remembers the day. He was in Stranglethorn Vale, praying for a blessing from a Loa, hoping to become a Shadow Hunter, but expecting death for his blood line. He wasn't of full troll blood, his father was an orc. Given his age, it had to be shortly before the orcs left the Eastern Kingdoms, that his parents had met. He was going to remains strong, and keep praying, even if it did end in his demise.
Not a lot of people would miss him, if he had died, but there were some. His mother, an over protecting troll of a tribe she would not reveal, his father, an insane warlock of Shadowmoon decent, and his sister, who wanted to be just like her big brother.
He sighed, his offering given, a panther, not too large, but far from small. He decided to sleep this night, maybe he'd recieve his blessing in the morning. Larry, his pet Lashtail Raptor, and his best friend in the world, curled up next to his master to sleep.
It took many hours to fall asleep, but he finally did, drifting into the realm of dreams, and nightmares.
The dream he had was one he would never forget. He was in a bone yard, surrounded by the dead skeletons of thousands, if not millions, of dinosaurs. Suddenly, a might roar filled the air, and the bones around Tel'Lus began to move, flying and spinning.
The bones gathered into a mighty skeleton of a devilsaur, one bigger than ever imaginable. Tel'Lus grew scared as the skeleton grew flesh of gold and silver, shining brighter than King Rastakhan's thrown. The mighty devilsaur leaned close to the half-troll's face, and spoke in a strong, roaring, but surprisingly feminine voice.
"Half-Blood, do as I command, for if you do, you will recieve my blessing. I am what you call a "Loa". I am she of the ancient beasts and reptiles. You must put your trust into the scales of the living and dead. You must believe in the beasts of Ancient. You will command them, you will be one of them."
Tel'Lus couldn't move, and couldn't speak. He stood there, in awe, waiting for the devilsaur to devour him, where he believed he would awake. The beast raored, waking Tel'Lus from his dream. Larry awoke too, with a 'You okay?' look on his face.
Tel'Lus nodded, with a smile. He knew what he was, and what he was going to be. He was going to be a Dinomancer.
