Eclypse, or Tristan Moonkeep, is a character built with a friend named Chris Gilpatrick. Chris and I discussed many things about the book, and he would often give me ideas when making the first book. The story has since taken a life of its own and Chris and I dont get to see each other as often as we would like to, but that is the circumstances of life sometimes. Chris is a great person, and I tried to reflect that in the character of Eclypse. Chris is the type of person who would catch you if you were falling backwards, and not out of trust but his nature. With that in mind I tried to make Eclypse have the same persona, a person who would do the right thing just because it was the right thing to do. Chris is also responsible for the creation of other characters in book one, and I owe a lot to him for his help.
Eclypse lived much of his life as an elf, but secretly hid his true identity for many years. He knew, since the day he was born, all of the knowledge of the universe; this aquistion of knowledge came with a price, he was to be the guardian of Odra, or order. Eclypse tended to his duties as a cosmic enitity in secret, and while out helping Fox chase of the Vlux, he lost the love of his life. After that Eclypse lived the rest of his days as the cosmic entity he was, mostly alone in the dark solitude he had made for himself. It wasn’t until the nearing end of his days as Guardian of Odra did he realize the good he could of done to help, and with that he bestowed his powers upon a new guardian, Zeya, and she also took with her his revelation. I do plan to incorporate Eclypse into future storylines.
