Events in the Series (spoilery area) Edit

Dreams Underfoot — "Romano Drom": Lorio meets a wounded creature in an alley. Elderee looks like an orangutan with orange fur. He tells her that with her Romany blood, she must walk the gypsy road with intent. A vicious creature—Mahail’s hound—a polrech sent by Dorn to to stop Elderee, and now he,r appeared out of the air. When it charged, Lorio hit it with her guitar case, killing it. Lorio takes Elderee to the zoo for treatment for his wounds with Terry and Jane's help. When she returns to the alley in her dreams she finds the road, Dorn opens a pit into which she falls down to Mahail—a monstrous tentacled creature. Lorio awakens just as the life was about to be squeezed out of her. When she returns to the road, she confronts Dorn. Later, she checks on Elderee who is healing. He tells her of the wonders like the monkey puzzle tree, and friends like Jacca and Mabena, as well as the dangers of the Road. They agree to patrol it together. ~ "Romano Drom"
