** By that logic, Nryz also fits this and the DarkActionGirl moulds.



* EvilRedhead: Nryz.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: When Malaak asks Amer how he could tell she was the Guardian, he says that he can see her differently, just as she can see the Jinn amongst the militia. She then goes on to ask how he sees her, and he replies: "My dear, if you can't see it yourself, it's hardly my place to tell you." Maybe it wasn't really the author's intention, but judging by how Malaak blushes at this... Well, let's leave it at this.

Though set in an alternate reality, it is heavily inspired from the author's own experiences growing up during a seemingly endless war, during which life carries on as best it can.

The Plot:

Part I

In an alternate reality, Lebanon is trapped in an unending, incomprehensible war. As chaos is reaching a peak, a mysterious child is found in a cedar forest. Not until she is grown does an otherworldly encounter unlock both the memory of what she is, and powers beyond her understanding - powers which she will need to discover the source of the war, and to end it once and for all...

Part II

Having joined forces with the Citizen Defense Brigade, Malaak earns a place in the hearts of the people, who call her the Guardian. The Jinn don't stand a chance against her growing powers until a more serious adversary arises, one against which she seems to have no power at all. As an enigmatic stranger enters the scene, it becomes clear that things aren't as simple as they seemed...

Part III

The series takes a darker turn as Nryz, a sinister red-haired woman, starts wreaking havoc and picking off characters, and once more Malaak finds herself unable to combat this new menace. Malaak is forced to enter a world of dreams to find help in fighting the new threat.

Part IV

Through recurring flashbacks, we are told the story of a young Phoenician man who had a nasty encounter with the Jinn. Meanwhile, in the present, the Jinn are up to no good...
