Timelines & lifelines


This is a time line that I made about my characters. It shows when they’re born, the use of their lives, and their death. basically, each strip of paper is the length of their life. There are a couple of strips that could not fit completely, either because their life started before what fits on here, or they live longer than what I had room for. It took me hours to make it, & I put major events of their lives on them, along with the age that they were when it happened. I even measure things carefully so that everything’s to scale, & I lined up different characters lives appropriately. So now, you can see when certain people were born compared to when others were, and how old everyone was when certain things in the story happened. Here in thete I have what year it was on Lorata. For example, Arialla was born in the year 4687. (Keep in mind that Loarat does not have b.c. and a.d., so even though this looks like it would be the future, it’s actually not.)

About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons, and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a distant planet watched over by four deities: good, evil, elemental, and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the realm whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently three books completed, and the first one can be read online. Book four is currently being written, and a fifth will most likely be in the future.

  1. It’s been a bit roughed up over the months, but it serves its purpose. It ised to be just a piece of paper, but I keep re-making it to be better and more accurate. Next time I might use colored strips of paper.
