Wildbird was tasked with protecting a garden of golden apples with very valuable golden seeds, which are used to fuel a portal between dimensions. The lord of the portal chose Wildbird because of his power, but also because of his loyalty. For years, Wildbird guarded the garden restlessly. He never really got to talk much or to see anyone, and he was a bit lonely, but his sense of duty kept him as effective as when he started — until he met someone.
Her name was Zunobia. In the beginning, she simply dropped by the garden’s gates looking lost and asking for directions, but ended up staying there and talking to Wildbird. She was so charming, she reminded him a little of himself, with her beak and her feathers…. He fell for her immediately. She seemed to be very interested in what he was keeping in the garden, and he proudly explained everything about the apples, and the seeds, and how it was his duty to guard them. He wanted to impress her and, at least apparently, it seemed to work, because the next day, she was back! Zunobia kept returning to talk to him for weeks on end, Wildbird was deeply in love with her, but then one day she said:
"You know I can’t stay here anymore, I’ve got nothing and I’m earning nothing while I’m here. I want to go somewhere else. Why don’t you come with me? We could take a bunch of those golden seeds you’re protecting and live on them for the rest of our lives.”
Wildbird was in shock. Zunobia was asking him not only to abandon his duty, but also to actively betray his lord and steal from him.
“Are you crazy? I can’t do that! Duty is everything to me…” he said.
“Everything? I thought we had something good here… Come on, show me what you got! Show me the garden I can do the dirty work myself if you can’t bring yourself to do it.”
In the end, she convinced him to let her into the garden. He opened the gates for her and allowed her to take everything she wanted. He didn’t even want to look, so he just waited outside. And he waited… and he waited… and then he turned around and entered the garden to check what was taking Zunobia so long. But she wasn’t there anymore. There was only a note that said “I’m sorry”. She had escaped with the golden seeds, but without him. He was forsaken.
He then understood why she had shown all that interest in the garden from the very beginning. She wasn’t lost, she knew what was in there from the very beginning. Wildbird felt like his entire future was meaningless. He was alone again and he couldn’t stay at his lord’s service after having betrayed him. He had all his power and nothing to do with it: no job, nobody to protect… but at the same time, he realized he could do anything. He could start fresh, serving no one but himself. He was free to travel and free to meet other monsters.
It’s a new day, it’s a new life for Wildbird. Multiverse of Monster Legends, are you ready for him?
