How Does Ironclad Devotion tie in to the Mythos World?
(Warning: Potential Spoilers Below…)
Treasured Claim mentioned that dragons used to have a homeland. Now, readers learn how they lost it, the reasons for the dragon-faerie war, and how dragons came to Earth.
In Treasured Claim, Elaina’s hair is described as “changeling,” which she inherited from her mother, who presumably had faerie blood in her lineage. Kira of Ironclad Devotion gives a detailed look at pure-blood changeling hair.
In Pure Sacrifice, Markos learns of connections between some faeries and unicorns. The reason why those faeries would have worked with unicorns is revealed here, as Kira learns the gargoyles are missing from the palace and new guards had been needed. The fallout of those connections for unicorns caught in the middle is also alluded to here.
More of the Mythos plane is explored, including the elemental spirits of the faerie homeland and of Mythos itself, as well as how each race taps into different styles of magic.
Like in Pure Sacrifice, we see Zac ensure the importation of non-living material doesn’t cause an imbalance between planes.
Have a Question about Mythos or Ironclad Devotion?
Kira’s true name comes from a blending of several names from European languages with meanings like: fairy queen, throne, sunrise, spark, fiery ones, light, etc.
As mentioned in the story, the Navajo prayer of Zac’s grandfather isn’t based on an actual ceremony (both in the interest of the characters’ lack of time and for privacy of the Navajo culture), but Sani’s misunderstanding of Kira’s nature is based on real Navajo teachings about the gods and holy ones.
