Pet Name: suzieq_7
SuzieQ_7 was sitting on a painted rock in front of the Central Stage of the Shenkuu Annual Singing and Dancing Festival. She had just finished her sketches featuring dance moves and Shenkuu Performer’s outfit, and now was just turning the pages on her notepad. Pages full of memories, stories and history...
...When Suzie, the Seventh child in the Q dynasty, was born in her parent’s summerhouse on Mystery Island, an old Kyrii, the Island Mystic, came to the house to tell the child’s future. This tradition helped to define the child’s path, their future training and their destiny.
The Mystic looked at the markings on the baby pteri egg. “A traveler, who finds the unknown; a warrior, who protects...” he said. He turned the baby pteri egg around, mumbling something to himself. “Hmmm. A writer and a collector, and a keeper.” He turned to SuzieQ’s parents with a puzzled look on his face. “I am sorry, but the readings are too spread out. I cannot predict one path for your child.”
Time went by, and SuzieQ had undertaken all the training she was interested in – she trained at Mystery Island Academy, and learned all science subjects from the local library. One day, her old master from the training academy came to her. “I taught you all the martial art skills you will need, child. I taught you ancient healing secrets, and meditation techniques. Now it’s up to you to find it in your heart which path you will follow.”
For hours after that SuzieQ was walking restlessly through the quiet alleys of the Academy, thinking and trying to figure out what to do next. Finally, she sat down under a blooming ummagine tree on a soft, green grass, and closed her eyes. Her wings were relaxed, and her mind soared up on its own, searching for answers. And just like that, an answer came to her. It showed in a form of ancient fortune-telling cards, shimmering in the crisp afternoon sun. She knew exactly how to read them, since they were meant for her, and her only. And while she did not remember the old Kyrii's premonition, it was exactly as he read it years ago...
The first card was a Traveler, an explorer of unknown lands; next to it was a Warrior, a defender of the innocent; then a Writer quill – to document traditions and folklore; a Collector’s chest - for artifacts and rare items; and a Storyteller - to pass those stories and traditions to others... The meaning was coming to SuzieQ clearly, and cards swirled in the air to form a new one: The Keeper.
She exhaled and opened her eyes. The cards were gone, but she got her reading... The old Kyrii was wrong only about one thing – there was a path that had all those markings...
...SuzieQ closed her notepad, and packed it up into her traveler’s case, along with a couple new pteri items she had picked up on this journey. It was time to go back home and tell her stories to all Neopians. She spread her wings and continued on her life-long journey as traveling historian, the Keeper of History.
