Animation, Drama

Though only 15, Maquia knows she will live for centuries without aging past

adolescence. She belongs to the Iorph, a clan of ageless beings just like her. Maquia's

elders warn her not to fall in love with anyone outside their realm, lest she wish to

encounter true loneliness in the end. But fate pushes Maquia out into the mortal world

one night, when an invading territory separates her from the clan. There she discovers

an orphaned baby, Erial, and takes him in as her own child. From this point, Maquia will

suffer extreme heartbreak in the name of motherhood, as she watches Erial grow and

seeks to reconnect with her lost Iorph friends, all torn apart by the cruel world of

Mesate.

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
