Onet’s Tale Synopsis
Onet’s tale is a story of evil destruction across the cosmos told by one of the last
remaining members of an ancient species called Khaz. The storyteller Onet writes the tale
while he waits for the evil to arrive, created by his brothers meddling after they have put
into place events, which will lead to the birth of an all-powerful being more destructive
than any could imagine.
Onet does not share the same feelings for power and greed that his Khaz brothers
crave; he is concerned with restoring order and peace to the cosmos. Consequently, his
story is told from his own apologetic perspective angered by the way, his kind has ruined
everything during his long life.
The first part Onet’s story ‘New Alliance’, involves the unlikely partnership
between some young Human-Nephile’s and disgraced Drana thrown together as slave
labour in a Drana-run mine on a lonely planet close to the Drana Empire while the war
between the empire and combined forces of the Alliance of Planets rages across the
As events gradually unfold, the disparate group manages to escape, finding
sanctuary on a deserted beautiful and deadly planet called Kallorn. While exploring the
planet they encounter an avatar. Things worsen for the survivors on Kallorn. Our heroes
escape transformed by the avatar into an entirely new species of berserkers and return to
the violent war torn emptiness of space.
Things again take a turn for the worse when because of meddling by one of
Onet’s kin; the avatar is changed into a killing machine bent on destroying all life. Our
heroes follow the bloody trail of destruction across the cosmos and eventually confront
the evil killing machine on a new continent called Gilgama here on earth. A gargantuan
battle ensues between the heroes and their allies the remnants of humanity and a vast
berserker army created by the evil avatar.
Finally one of the heroes named Akhen destroys her in single combat and leaves
the planet forever in voluntary exile far from any other living thing now the vessel for her
evil essence. Onet continues to wait after Akhen’s victory, for the birth of the ultimate
being a few short years after the first part of the story ends.
Onet continues narrating the second part of the saga ‘Orion’s Belt’, forty-five
years later. Because of his great age he is becoming more confused over who or what it
is, he is actually waiting for. While he waits, he continues the story of the creation of the
second hero Goran after DNA manipulation by Onet’s kin had again gone terribly wrong
in space. He tells how Goran and his four friends manage to survive in the dangerous
world of the berserkers here on Earth.
Goran is driven from his home in Gilgama, eventually ending up alone in the hills
of Gozo in the Maltese Islands. Along the way, Goran meets his soul mate and while they
are blessed with a very special child named Sefani, who Onet is convinced is the evil he
has been waiting for, their union is cursed.
As the time draws near, Onet begins to panic while he tells his tale, still confused.
The ultimate twist at the end will give you pause for thought when Onet realizes too late
he has been mistaken all along.
