Inside the longhouse beneath the towering Unity Tree, Hiawatha, a wise peacemaker, and Adodahu, the warrior whose serpent-like features hint at a haunting transformation, sit face to face. The room is tense, a constant reminder of the recent Palasy battle and its scars.

Hiawatha: (Maintaining calm composure) Adodahu, we have unraveled the conspiracy leading to our loss at Palasy battlefield1. The darkness that deceived us must be set right. We must restore balance and harmony to our wounded land.

Adodahu’s Lament:

Adodahu: (His voice tinged with a bitter edge) The beguiling power of the Medusa serpent twisted my very essence, turning me into this serpentine figure. My people, once noble and proud warriors, have been marred. I am a living testament to the shadow that engulfed us.

Hiawatha: (Nodding with understanding) I share your pain, Adodahu. But we cannot surrender to the allure of hatred or the call for vengeance. We must find a way for both our peoples to coexist peacefully. Let each group tread their distinct paths, uphold their unique beliefs, and let them flourish without interference.

Adodahu: (Skeptical) Peace, Hiawatha? How can trust be reborn after such a profound betrayal and the losses we’ve endured? The Red Army’s destruction has left a trail of ruin. Forest fires and sacred places were razed to the ground. We both know the dire consequences of man-made disasters.

Hiawatha’s Vision:

Hiawatha: (Radiating optimism) Peace is the most enduring treaty, Adodahu. It’s through peace that we can rebuild and move forward. Our communities can thrive, and our people will prosper with technological progress and prosperity. We have much to learn from one another; together, we can shape a future where harmony reigns.

Adodahu: (Pausing, contemplating Hiawatha’s words) You might be right, Hiawatha. Peace could spare us more suffering. But how can we ensure its longevity? The wounds run deep, and trust is as delicate as glass.

The Promise of Peace.

Hiawatha: (Smiling gently) Trust will grow with time, Adodahu. We can commence by seeking common ground and honoring each other’s traditions. Let’s work side by side in healing our land and restoring its equilibrium. Through unity and comprehension, we can forge a lasting peace, granting both our peoples the opportunity to thrive.

[The room falls silent as Hiawatha’s words settle in. Adodahu, still cautious, begins to consider the prospect of peace. A sense of hope fills the space as the two leaders envision a future where the Unity Tree casts its protective shadow over a harmonious land.]

  1. The Battle of Palasy occurred in an alternate realm in India in 1757. The “White Army” represents the tribes, indigenous groups, and their native Indian allies. Hiawatha is the analogy of Siraj King, leading the indigenous and allied forces against the invasion army of the British East India Company, often referred to as the “Red Army.”
  2. Adodahu, in this context, is an analogy of cold blooded Mir Jafar, the minister who became corrupted by lust of power. In this alternate realm, Jafar betrayed Siraj, leading to Siraj’s loss in the Battle of Palasy.
