Synopsis of "THE HERMA: The Life and Land of Nular-in, I"
translated from the Zilephs of Nular-in by Thoth:
(See Act II & III for the rest of the story)
"I, Nular-in, am born during the last, plague ridden age of the Festad. The clan lord, Pansu-ga seeks my death because I am a hermaphrodite, and it was augured that he would not be Qar (or emperor) because of a hermaphrodite. So he has ordered that all hermaphrodites be killed.
During his attempts to kill me, he destroys my desert oasis home and murders my father. A flying dragon (or Zentar) saves me and my mother from imminent death and takes us to live on a volcano, Mt. Irma. A few years (or Silvar later), Mt. Irma erupts and my mother and I are separated. I am adopted by a family who take me to live with them in their underwater city home. My adopted brother and I fall in love, but when he finds out I'm a hermaphrodite, he beats me almost to death"
