about

 Who was he, this cripple, this maimed apparition who both repelled and fascinated; who inspired a pure love and relentless hate? He was known by many names from S. E. Asia to the Sierra Nevada’s of America.

To his family he was John Eaton Kyrie.

To Silva, the first to see his second coming on a burnt ship in the South China Sea, he was Gramps, “the young old one,” the warrior child, returned from the dead.

To the “People” of the mountain tribe he was, the ancient immortal Kyrie, their Lord.

To a tiny, supremely ugly, and dangerous matriarch of a Mindanao mountain tribe, whom Kyrie names the Medusa (Med) he is her beloved Enkanto. As Kyrie becomes this legend the old women of Mindanao think of him as this supernatural being.

To the Moro’s, Haj, and Ali he is their Lord, a loyal friend, and a fellow soldier fighting against the hated Japanese in WW 2 on Mindanao, the Philippines. They are joined in their fight by Silva and Med’s tribe, the “People.”

To Rhodes of the CIA a Lt. Kyrie is his deliverer from a Viet Cong hell, interrupted in his relentless search for another POW named Donaldson.

To the Ozmun sisters he is a beloved lost stepbrother, from the past, now returned to them.

To Lee, an angry ex-soldier and spy and Dr. Dodds he is a pure, beloved friend.

Crippled and maimed Kyrie is returned home from S. E. Asia, where he feels betrayed by a terribly changed America. These changes inspire a great sadness and fatalism in him as he visits old friends. Pursued by ghosts and the descendants of old enemies he flees humanity for his Sierra Nevada home, left decades ago, The One Twenty.

Even these 120 acres gives him no peace or escape from a vengeful enemy and the unthinking uncaring world outside.

Deep under the 120 a grotesque, other world being, Kyrie christens as manlike (Quasimodo) and his minions wait to serve their new Lord. Q for short gives Kyrie a rebirth and the Keys to the Kingdom, but this kingdom is not of this world!
