Mairel Elof The emptiness of space spans farther than any living being can understand. Stars spread out as pinpoints of light seem merely a backdrop to scenery filled with nothingness. For one spending their night outside on a planet, the view is similar to spending their night aboard a ship traveling the stars and watching them pass through a cabin window. Mairel Elof, the heiress to the Elof Empire, did that often. Recently, her days rarely amounted to spending time on any planet, let alone her home planet of Juris—the epicenter of the Elof Empire. Instead, she found herself aboard many of the space-faring ships of the Empire.
