For April, Stone is celebrating the A to Z Blog Challenge with daily letter-themed entries. A separate page with a list of all these entries, plus Character Profiles and Book Synopses will appear on the right hand side of the page in coming weeks, detailing the people, places and things of the Stone Soldiers universe.

Character Profile: Yo-Ahyuwatt
(A Stone Soldiers Encyclopedia Entry)

In 2013, a coven of witches conspired and successfully brought down a prehistoric satellite of unknown origins, the Black Knight. The witches believed the satellite contained powerful demons they would bend to their will to make themselves even more rich and powerful in the modern era.

But they were wrong. The Black Knight contained something far worse. The Titans.

As it turns out, the Titans of Greek mythology were quite different from what mankind had been led to believe. Even the demi-god Hercules (Father Lee Schuler in the modern era) had been told tall tales about the Titans by his father Zeus.

The Titans were in fact, the First Born offspring of Fallen Angels. Humanoid beings of great power. And among them was Yo-Ahyuwatt.

This human-looking woman, with four-arms possessed an uncanny, powerful psychic ability to make anyone do what she said. A combination of telepathy and mind control. It worked on even the Stone Soldiers, when they first encountered Yo-Ahyuwatt and her brothers and sisters in Oklahoma, after the Black Knight was opened. But for all her power, Yo-Ahyuwatt was not immortal, or even bulletproof. Colonel Mark Kenslir killed the millennia old Titan with a simple gunshot to the head.

After the defeat of the Titans, Detachment 1039 learned that they were ancient Fallen beings who had foreseen the Flood, and so created a craft they could sleep in for millenia, until mankind had repopulated the Earth and turned wicked once more. Absent from Earth for so long, they left behind a legacy, carved in stone, that soon became nothing more than myth and legend, with mortals creating tales to go along with the images they found scattered around what is now Asia.

Yo-Ahyuwatt was pale-skinned, unlike her sister, who bore four arms and was blue-skinned. She wore elaborate red robes and ornate jewelry and was the most beautiful of the Titans. Her body was recovered after the battle in Oklahoma and has presumably been autopsied and catalogued, her First Born DNA shipped away for study and evaluation for possible military applications.
