500 years old, face of a 14 year old, curly white hair, uses a wheelchair only because she thinks it's fun and comfortable ... Amelia Mythos is a rare treasure. She's seen so many fads come an go, that her only interest nowadays is to find anyone who will listen and impart her knowledge. Some of her sayings are a mix of silly superstitions and forgotten wisdom. It takes a bit of patience to sort through and find these nuggets of wisdom, but they are so valuable that if mankind ignores her completely we may be doomed to self destruction. And in the age of ipods, pleasure quests, fast cars, and tight schedules, she is about to be forgotten forever ... which means her years will come to an end ... not by a usual death, but by vanishing.
So what wisdom does she possess, which will save humanity? I don't know if I'll ever reveal it if I explore the story because I don't want to be preachy, just poderous. What do you think?
