There are lots of unique people groups across Azuria, but one of my personal favorites are the saudad.
The saudad are interplanar travelers who move between the various realms of Azuria. They’re storytellers who love experiencing others’ cultures and sharing their own. But despite this curiosity and adventurous spirit, there’s a melancholy about them as well—the saudad are destined forever to roam Azuria and beyond as their home was tragically destroyed long ago.
You’ll be able to read more about this soon in an upcoming novella—Story Magic!
But, if you don’t want to wait for that, you can read one of the saudad’s stories here!
When do we get to see them?
And, I can now happily reveal, the saudad also figure prominently in Hadvarian Heist where Persephonie gets her own storyline!
One of my favorite fantasy artists, Rachel Denton, created this gorgeous character art for Persephonie.
I’m so excited for you to meet the saudad and add this beautiful culture to your experience of a shared fantasy world. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you’ll join the reading community below if you haven’t already!
