Queen Trinity of the chaos elves is the powerful rival and playmate of Nyx. They have a very interesting relationships and I love it when they can fight each other. Trinity debuted in the prologue of Prodigy of Rainbow Tower, which is available for 99 cents. Possible minor spoilers for the ending of book 1.
“I swear that I will defeat him during our next encounter,” the Hellfire Elf responds with a wide grin. “If I fail then it will be by my destruction in battle. I swear on the tongues of the Demon Lords.”
The grin is short-lived as a volley of metal spears erupts from the trees, impaling themselves into the ground to form a cage around the Hellfire Elf. Several cloaked forms silently appear around the cave with glinting crossbows trained on the monster. Another form materializes within arm’s reach of the demon and stares at it with a face covered in shadows. Three eyes of violet are all that the demon can see beneath this person’s deep cowl.
“Who dares intrude upon my realm?” demands the Lich.
“Shut up, Lich. I’ve been ordered to give you and your pet some support,” says the cloaked figure, the voice unmistakably female. “I’m also under orders to act as your hands until you regenerate new ones. A very sweet deal for me since it means any screw-ups will be placed entirely on your shoulders instead of mine. I’m tempted to make a mistake on purpose just to see what the master does to you.”
“And who are you?” the Hellfire Elf asks.
The figure removes the cloak to reveal a slender, elven frame covered in tight leather armor, which is obviously more for seduction and easy movement than protection. Her pristine, cobalt skin glimmers in the moonlight as she turns toward her men. The remaining cloaked figures pull back their hoods to reveal pointed ears and cobalt skin like their leader. All of these elves bow their heads in an act of respect for this stunning woman. She nods to each of them before she turns back to the demon. The glowing orb that the demonic assassin previously mistook for a third eye is nothing more than a violet gemstone embedded in the woman’s forehead. A graceful hand passes through her ebony hair as she silently walks past the Hellfire Elf. The chaos elf stops mere inches from the cave entrance and leans inside without hesitation.
“A good host should make the introductions,” she declares with an impish smile. “Especially when a lady is in their presence.”
“Very well, your highness,” the Lich venomously says. “May I introduce one of my colleagues, servant. This woman is none other than the High Queen of the chaos elves. Your power and cunning is much appreciated, Queen Trinity. I hope this means I’m forgiven by our master.”
“Not in the least,” Trinity snaps with a pleasant giggle. “It means he does not trust you and would rather trust a person like me. As I said, my job is to be your hands since your body is still mending. I have very little independence on this job. I should mention that I do this under protest. I might be tempted to avenge one of my people who you sacrificed for that pathetic demon. Garna was one of my most loyal spies and her only failure was in your service. The fact that you had the audacity to sacrifice her for a Hellfire Elf instead of sending her back to me is grounds for me to turn on you at my earliest convenience.”
Trinity pauses to swallow her growing rage before speaking again. “That is if I wasn’t under orders to work with you and leave dear Garna in the past. Our master wants us to work together due to your . . . current disability. I’m not in any position to argue.”
“We do not need a woman,” the Hellfire Elf growls.
Trinity turns with a mischievous gleam in her eyes and aims her palms at the proud, caged demon. Just like her forehead, a violet gemstone is embedded in each of her palms. They glow brightly as a silent spell is cast. The Hellfire Elf’s face erupts in confusion and fury when it feels its body begin to transform. Without its permission, the demon turns into a red-streaked bunny.
Trinity swiftly grabs the bunny by the ears and turns it to her face. “I may be a woman, but that should make you even more cautious. My gender can be a lot crueler than you give us credit for, especially a female chaos elf. Please try to work with me, little demon. I would hate to waste more magic on you than I already have. Do we have an understanding or should I skin and cook you for my men?”
