The universe of the Children of Daela is a complex one, and while individual elements may be familiar, the package turns out to be quite complicated and strange.  To help readers understand the universe better, this page will contain links to backstory elements.  The list will grow with time.  Satisfy your curiosity, and alleviate your confusion!  However, I should warn readers that these pages MAY contain "spoiler" information.  Readers interested in avoiding that kind of information should proceed with caution.  I will do my best not to, but I'm only human.
