Me rambling on about various aspects of world building techniques I use when writing the Quaraun series. The questions I am answering are embedded here. Clicking the link in the embedded question will take you to the original Reddit page where you can see the original answer along with other people's answers.

High Elves don't wear much jewelry, and they tend to wear rather simple, serviceable robes. High Elves like the comfort of safety in numbers so they tend to all do and wear exactly the same thing as everyone else in their clan, and will pick on, tease, bully, and harass any Elf that tries to be in any way different.

The Moon Elves, a type of High Elf, all wear nearly identical silver-blue silk robes, the colour of a full moon, and very minimal silver jewelry, such as a simple circlet on their head and a plain silver band on their finger.

And so, when there arose among them a very flamboyant, flashy Moon Elf wearing bright pink feather trimmed dresses with heavily beaded embroidery, and dripping head to toe in very super bling super sparkly gold jewelry with glittering pink tourmaline crystals... they attacked him and drove him out of Elf society, saying he was acting like a Faerie or a half-Elf (Calling a High Elf a Faerie or a Half-Elf are both horrible hate slurs in High Elf society, basically the worst insult there is for a High Elf).

However...

Demons like to wear a lot of jewelry and bright flashy colours. Fluorescent Yellows, Neon Oranges, Eye Popping Pinks, Dayglow Limon Greens, Electric Blues... Demons live for unnaturally bright, super dramatic, overly garish, very 1980's colour schemes, with the Mr.T jewelry gold chain bling to match.

Demons love their bling...

My main character, Quaraun, is a Moon Elf who was raised by Demons, so he wears a lot of jewelry, and very flamboyant colours, and is seen by the other Elves as insane because of the way he dresses, thus why they call him "Quaraun the Insane". People (Elves and Humans) tend to tease him and bully him quite a lot because of it, thinking he's a vain, arrogant prissy, not really realizing there is an actual reason behind how he dresses that has nothing to do with vanity.

A list of his piercings/etc are as follows:

  • 24 gold rings in each ear (his ears are 12" long and described as "rabbit-like")
  • 3 gold nose rings, 1 in the center, and 1 on each side
  • 48 tiny gold chains, each chain going from one of the rings in his ears to 1 of the rings in his nose (this acts as a veil covering most of his face, leaving only his eyes and lips in view)
  • both nipples are pierced, gold rings, with decorative pink tormulian butterflies
  • multiple tiny gold chains connect between his nipple rings
  • a Prince Albert piercing (an L-shaped hollow rod that inserted into the penis -hollow so you can pee through it - and comes out a piercing at the top)
  • A Prince Edward peircing (same as an Albert, but pierce through the bottom instead)
  • (Yes, Albert & Edward are real piercings - Google them if you never heard of them before)
  • multiple scrotum piercing, tiny gold rings, lining down each side of each testicle creating a patterned design
  • multiple (dozens) tiny gold chains connecting the scrotum rings to each other, hanging over and in front of his penis, creating and sort of "apron" or "loin cloth" that hides his genitals from view
  • all the chains (face, chest, and groin) have tiny pink tourmaline crystal points hanging from them
  • his finger are completely hidden from view, covered by gold armor "dragon claws"
  • he also wears gold chain necklaces, bracelets, waist/belly chains, and anklets.

Now, why he does it...

He is a member of an order of wizard-priests (The Di'Jinn) who though not castrated, live as Eunuchs and take a vow of celibacy. The jewelry acts as "chastity devices". The placement of them make sex a near impossibility for him. The weight of the jewelry hanging from his ears, nose, nipples, and genitals is heavy and painful (he is wearing far too many to be comfortable), becoming a form of monk-like "self torture". Because of the way they are placed, an erection becomes a painful thing, the jewelry "punishing" him for losing control of his bodily functions.

The face, nipples, and genitals are seen as objects of sexual delight, thus they are hidden, in this manner. Ironically, the jewelry is unseen most of the time, as he wears cloths similar to that of a traditional Persian Muslim woman. Thus while the chains cover his face, so too does a hijab and face veil. While the chains cover his nipples and genitals, so too do the long flowing floor length dresses with sleeves to his finger tips. His dresses, robes, and veils are all of bright bubblegum pink, heavily embroidered with dark pink & purple hearts, squid, and jellyfish.

The colour pink, and all the members of The Order of the Di'Jinn wearing dresses, even the men, is because they worship The Sacred Pink Jelly Fish (a type of Thullid), a very Lovecraftian style pink Demon Goddess who's an alien Jelly Fish trapped on Earth, after her home planet burned up when her sun supernovaed. Most of the Demons who worship her, in fact also aliens, and are Squid Headed Humanoids from Neptune's Moon (no one knows which one). They wear pink because their goddess is pink, and wear dresses because she is female.

The armour on his fingers, make it difficult for him to do even every day normal tasks, requiring him to ask others to help him to do very basic things. This is a "lesson in humility" much the same way a Buddhist monk owns nothing but a broom and a bowl, and has to humble himself to begging food from others in order to survive. The Elf needs help to eat, as the finger armor make it difficult for him to grip objects like forks or spoons. Most people (Humans usually, but other Elves as well), not understanding his religion, tend to see this as him being snooty and too arrogant to do things for himself, and he is often beaten up by bullies who call him a wimp and a sissy. People often drag him into the street and beat him up, strip him naked, and rip up his "fancy pink dresses" to humiliate him, because they incorrectly assume him to be a transsexual and think he is wearing pink to try to be a women, think he is asking for help because he's too good to do things on his own. Because of how he dresses, other Elves call him: "Quaraun the Insane".

The religion is a Demon religion, practiced by Demons, specifically the Thullids, a type of Chaos Demons, and the goddess herself is a Thullid. Normally no non-Demons are members of this religion and he is in fact the only Elf to ever join this religion, which has resulted in his being cast out of Elven society, seen by other Elves as a traitor. He came to join this religion, because as a small child his mother was murdered by his father, and he was about to be murdered with her, except a Di'Jinn priest was passing by and saw the enraged Elf beat his wife to death then turn on his son. The priest offered to buy the boy to keep as his slave. The father agreed and sold his son to the Demon. The Demon took the boy back to the Temple of the Di'Jinn in Persia, where he was raised as though he was just another Demon. The result was an Elf raised among Thullid Chaos Demons and adopting the religion of the Thullid family who raised him.

(The name Thullid comes from Cthulu by the way.)

The Di'Jinn priests named him Quaraun (which is a real Persian name that means "one who walks with god"), after they took the Sacred Pink Jelly Fish and implanted her into his brain. Essentially they killed the Elf, and his body was used as a "husk" to allow the Goddess to be able to have a body of her own and walk freely among the people (rather than being stuck in a fish tank, which is where she lived before being implanted into the Moon Elf's body.) (This is "Demon Possession" by the way. In the Quaraun series, Demons can literally take your body and live inside of it, making your their puppet. - In other words, Quaraun is a Demon Possessed Moon Elf.)

Because she has no concept of any Earth society or culture and she has psionic powers, she often wishes her attackers dead, and whomever is beating/bullying/humiliation the Elf, simply drops dead. Which resulted in the world as a whole being terrified of Quaraun calling him "the world's most powerful wizard".

In the novels, you see Quaraun go back and forth between calling himself a male Elf and using male pronouns, to calling herself a female Thullid and using female pronouns, because he is both, him being a male Elf with a female Thullid living inside him.

The Quaraun Series On Amazon:

I am wondering why has Amazon moved the Quaraun books to the category "Transgender Romance" and also "Gay Erotica"? The base story is a deeply depressed, suicidal, drug addict Elf who's lover commit suicide and he's trying not to do the same. It's an old Elf in a tavern, monologuing a lot of flashbacks and back story scenes of his youth. These stories are dark, bloody, angsty, full of drug use, murder, rape, Medieval torture, mental/physical/emotional abuse, and references to depression and suicide - no romance in it, unless you count the occasional (and usually brutally violent) rape scenes that show up in nearly every volume - sorry - no clue what Amazon is thinking or why they moved these to Romance and Erotica, but these books are NOT even close to being Romance or Erotica on any level at all. When I published these books I put them in "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi". If they show up in any category other then "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi", it's because Amazon put them there without my authorization or approval.

Of The Quaraun Series:

  1. Question Everything Before Putting It In Your World 

The 4 door white truck continues to sit at the end of my drive way (146 Portland Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine) near every night around sunset, reeving it's engine and squealing it's tires, with the driver yelling anti-gay threats and obscenities out the window. He continues to do the same thing at my dad's apartment building (Biddeford Maine) a few times a week, usually in mid to late afternoon time. He continues to follow me to shopping to various stores in various towns throughout the states.

Phrases he yells from the truck include:

"Kill or be killed remember Saco Shaws all transsexuals are alike"

"I keep a gun under the seat of my truck, I'm gonna use it to shoot you in the head, you transvestite freak"

if cars are going by he yells to them: "that thing is Ken's son, look at how's it's dressed; it's insane, it has autism, we can't allow that thing and it's gay cars in our family friend town of Old Orchard Beach"

He often babbles deranged ramblings about something he calls "the gay-pocalypse", raving lunacy about how "all the gays are gathering" on his doorstep. He raves some crazy nonsense about how Armageddon is coming and the war to end all wars will be "the gays against the Christians" and Christians have to be ready to "kill the gays"

My car is the Autism Awareness Car and had 2.5million marbles glued to it (I have Autism - savant - Kanner's syndrome) he claims tat my car "is gay" because of what it looks like. My car has been vandalized several dozen times, including to have the tires slashed 7 times in 6 months.

After dark often around 10PM, he stands at the end of the logging road across the street from me and shoots at my motohome (in February 2014 he shot holes in my neighbour's barn while doing this). I have video footage of 3 of his shootings at me here:  https://youtu.be/NUebzJ9sz9U and here: https://youtu.be/C4dZbgG-Smw

This has gone on since August 2013 now, in addition to all the vandalism, hate crimes, pet beheadings, etc that has happened, including the bomb that blew up our house in 2006.

As you know, that whole time I had not been able to get a plate number on the truck. He as just here again, and I just realized why I could not get a plate number... there are no plates on the truck, either on the front or on the back. However, as he was driving away today... I noticed, there is a plate, stuck up in the back window of the truck, where it can barely be seen, deliberately obscured from view behind a silver tool box.
