Eberron - Dreams of Xen'drik
Za’alatora is a Quori spirit from the plane of Dal Quor, the realm of dreams. Unlike most Quori, Za’alatora does not serve the Dreaming Dark, and has spent much of it’s life attempting to work against the nightmare being that now occupies the heart of Dal Quor. For it’s transgressions, it was imprisoned in the body of an elan named Ral. It’s spirit was too powerful to be contained in one body, however, and the spirit was split between two bodies, one the elan in Reidra and the other a dire wolf in the jungles of Xen’drik. Satisfied that the tremendous distance between the two would prevent the Quori from escaping, the Dreaming Dark turned it’s mind to other matters.
Za’latora was powerful enough, however, to influence the dreams of it’s host, and drive Ral to journey to Xen’drik and try to find his “other half”. They found each other rather quickly, and have grown in power together ever since. Eventually, Za’latora hopes that Ral and Storm will grow strong enough that they can possibly release him, or simply serve as his proxies in the material plane to continue opposing the Dreaming Dark.
