Introducing the Doctor

Hoping you liked Chapter 4 (previous entry) - sorry to leave you with a cliffhanger. Chapter 5 will introduce a new character, and I thought I should give you some background.

Shamana Vavnu comes from a planet where evolution happened a little differently, and the highest lifeforms look more carnivorous. They haven't reached a par with Earth, scientifically speaking. Vavnu calls herself a doctor. But her treatment options are few, and she has no idea how to use any of the medical equipment Brahm has on board. She'd be lost in a modern hospital.

She has a worldview that includes many gods, though neither David nor Brahm understand exactly how she thinks. Brahm will be particularly confused, as you'll see. Vavnu can't explain herself either, because what's happened to her doesn't fit her worldview. The situation makes everybody tense, but eventually they have to calm down and try to work together.

And just when they think that's settled, there will be another surprise.

(P.S. Vavnu was originally called Vishi. Maybe I didn't need to change her name, but it kept reminding me of the provisional French government during World War II. Vavnu is a nod to Evavnuk, the Inuit female shaman.)
