The story of The Alicorn Quest begins in ancient India during the devastating loss of six pagodas and an art school during a large storm, earthquake and tsunami. It happens in the east coast community of Mahabalipuram where legend has it that before the disaster, there were seven temples.
In October of 950 CE, a villainous sorcerer by the name of Parese demanded the creation of a gold bangle to join the star amulet in his possession. He forced a skilled metal crafter to create it and enlisted the help of three sculptor friends to recite the words of an enchanted mantra.
The ground trembled as the amulet and bracelet of the horned-horse dropped into a boiling mixture of horse blood and a secret mixture of herbs. And then, at that moment, the four men watched in fear as the buildings around them began slipping under the sand. They evacuated the studio building before the tempering ritual could be completed, leaving the enchantment’s success very much in doubt. Unfortunately, the charmed pieces of gold jewelry dropped to the sea bottom during their frantic escape. They fell into a deep crack in the sea floor and remained there until resurfacing on the final night of the annual Diwali festival in the year 1861. Twenty-one-year-old Raj Sundaram rushed to the long-lost jewelry after it crashed to a local beach during the sky-filled fireworks display.
Soon after the event he is advised to accept a challenge of travel over land and sea in pursuit of the horse that would be a unicorn. The guidance of a wise soothsayer told him the journey would be a test of character, strength and leadership. The astrologist named Agilan instructs Raj to sail to the west coast of America. He also warns him that he would be faced by the challenge of evil twin sorcerers. These two scheming men are willing to do anything to get the powers of the unicorn’s horn before the Madras merchant’s son does. They made several attempts to harm Raj before he even sets sail on the merchant ship Calista.
