Prince Zarrek Spyrytte drew power from more than just the beloved goddess of his motherland. His father taught him to not rely solely on the fire magic that Jenh had blessed him with, and took him to the Temple of Metius despite his mother’s wishes.
In an attempt to somehow balance the two schools of magic, Zarrek only allowed the dark priests to scar the left side of his body. The piercings he accepted in exchange for power are often decried, and by the end of Legends of Lorata Book 2: Traipsing Light and Shadow, you’ll see why.
The angel wing tattoo represents his love for Starshine, and the dragon wing tattoo represents his heritage. He gets these tattoos during the years covered in Book 3: The Misty Shores of Cioria.
