* ShoutOut: Two character names were inspired by GreekMythology:
** Lady Adrasta was inspired by Andromeda, who attracted a sea monster which plagued her homeland.
** Erato was one of a group of goddesses called the Muses, specifically the Muse of erotic poetry; significantly, her name means “lovely”.
** The story's setting, Chloris, came from “chlorophyll”, the green pigment found in most vegetation.
