How Will Rolian Fit Into the Group

So as anyone who has read Act XL will Kroanette has made an interesting new friend in Rolian the Arachne. Since running into Daniel's group Rolian refuses to leave them wishing to see Kroanette due to her being Rolian's only friend. Considering the abuse that she has suffered, some of which Kroanette witnessed herself, and also since she has nowhere else to go I think Rolian will become part of the family in a way not as another mate for Daniel but more of a sister or something. If she does stay I hope that Daniel and the group, including Kroanette if she stops getting lost long enough to find her way home, then they will be able to have a positive change on her life to get her to quite drinking and maybe they can help Rolian find a man who will love her. In either case I bet Rolian will add something interesting to the group dynamic.

First of all, I just want to say this. It's Act XI (11), not Act XL (40). Sorry, just pointing out. . . .

As for the main discussion, I look forward to seeing how Rolian will impact Daniel's family (hopefully in a positive sense). I certainly hope she'll have a chance for happiness. Now that her abusive mother is dead and she's away from the horrible group she was stuck in, perhaps Rolian can see what life's like with friends who will hopefully help her recover from her abuse and alcoholism. From the looks of it, she's been going through this struggle for a long time and has come to see "Juggy" as her only real friend because of how alcohol numbs the senses and takes away emotions temporarily.

Besides the difficult challenge to stop drinking so much, it could prove to be painful for Rolian to accept these feelings. Years of abuse and bullying can, sadly, take quite a toll on your spirit. It can make you feel weak, worthless and alone, like there's no cure for you. The bad memories can follow you throughout your life like a plague, even into your adulthood. You wish you can go back and change it, but you can't. All you can do is learn to live with the memories and appreciate the good that's in your life. It can be hard some days, but it's important to hold on and even more important to have someone there for you, whether they be a loving mate or a loyal friend. Poor Rolian has a good heart and conscience and was wrongfully abused for it. But in Act XI, she showed her heart in how she freed Kroanette, and for it she earned a kind friend who hopefully, along with Daniel and the others, will help her in the right direction.

Additionally, Rolian can also represent the Arachne race and show how not all of her kind are vicious. She'll need a bit of rehab first, though. I don't think people will take Rolian seriously at the time given how drunk she gets. We'll have to see what happens.

You have a lot of very good questions, Twiwolf777. I'm happy there's another person who loves "Chronicles of Eden" as much as I do. Keep the discussions coming! :-)
