A Snippet of Chief Beryl Edric’s Bio:


About Chief Beryl Edric’s Life/Careers:

  • Adsila Onelasa lived in Oklahoma in the nation’s largest Cherokee reserve still around.  Her family had been there for generations and she was immersed in the traditional culture.  Adsila loved the Cherokees’ spiritual energies and respect for the Earth that gave them so much.  For her dedication, she quickly gained the respect of the elders, one of the youngest council members in modern history.  
  • She had an affinity with herbs, plants, and natural medicines, her goal to one day train to be a medicine woman in addition to a wise one.
  • When she was twenty, she was traveling out to a cavern to look for a different type of spring water when she bumped into Flint Edric, apprentice to his father at his gemstone company.  They heard there were some lovely specimens of beryl there.  Flint (he is from/still lives in Norman, OK.  Also, the family business is there) entered the entry of the cavern, locking eyes with a beautiful Adsila in meditation, the glistening of the water and flickering of the candlelight making this usually stonehard man pause.  
  • The two spent a lot of time together, Adsila teaching him about nature and weaving, inspiring some jewelry ideas.  He told her about the big cities and what was there.  
  • After a few weeks, Adsila introduced Flint to her entire family on the reserve.  They were against her falling for a ‘city man,’ wanting her to marry a Cherokee guy, but Flint was determined to prove his worth.  
  • Flint visited every three months for three or so weeks at a time, each time trying to prove to Adsila’s family how enchanted he was of her and her people.  But he didn’t want to fully convert himself.  
  • A year later, he asked for her hand in marriage in front of her parents, offering venison as traditions stated.  On the day of their marriage ceremony, the priest faced east and noticed the roots touched, meaning they were destined to be together. 
  • Sadly, after their honeymoon, Flint’s father passed away, making Flint in charge of the company.  It was a whirlwind to get him prepared.  To be supportive, Adsila decided to move into the big city with him, shaking her world.  However, he was very grateful, but also exceedingly busy.
  • Seven months later, Adsila became pregnant with their only child.  They named her Beryl, after the quest for the mineral that bound their fate.  Her father picked out the Cherokee word ‘Deyani’ for his precious child, it meaning determined and successful.  He wanted this for his only child.  It truly fits well!
  • Although Flint loved both his girls dearly, he never had a chance to see them and he could tell his wife was upset being in a city, away from her beloved home in nature. They discussed it and he allowed her and Beryl to live back in her town and finish her training to be a medicine woman and a much-needed council member once more.  It was a hard transition, but it was for the best.
  • Flint visited whenever he could (which sadly was only twice a month) and called daily for his girls.  He made sure to spend as many holidays with them as possible too.
  • Beryl learned to weave, plant, sew, paint, make medicine, meditation, the stories of her tribes, hunt and gather, survival tactics, listen to animal calls, horseback ride, raise livestock, and locate gemstones from her Cherokee family.  Her father wanted her to be protected due to his increasing value each year, so he taught her self-defense, investigating techniques, observation skills, and shooting a gun at his range (they never told her mother about that).
  • Beryl loved both of her lifestyles, although they were both so different.  She had a spiritual connection like her mother, appreciating nature and life, but was driven to be successful to be efficient, like her dad.
  • Beryl easily gained greatness in school, way more mature than her peers.  She flew through all her accelerated classes.  She was offered several scholarships for her drive, achievements, and diversity in culture, her essay soaring above other admission ones.  Wanting to be close to both her parents, she chose a full-ride scholarship to Oklahoma University. 
  • She chose a Criminal Justice degree, wanting to help people, but also nature.
  • Again, she flourished and after a perfect 4.0, the FBI recruited her after her graduation.  Beryl enjoyed solving crimes for the government, but she was approached for her keen eye in the unknown and spiritual connections/acceptances/energies thanks to her loving Cherokee background.  
  • At age 28, she was asked out to lunch by Melissa Lawerence, a dear friend of her mother’s since they were preteens.  Mrs. Lawerence was 75% Cherokee and Beryl had grown up seeing her and her loving smile.  
  • Mrs. Lawrence invited her to join The Hunters, revealing that monstrums were real.  This didn’t surprise Beryl at all.  She grew up hearing of spirits of light and darkness, guardians, how everything in nature had a soul.  Her mother and Mrs. Lawerence were accepting of the great beyond and its mystery, sharing stories by the fire while Beryl listened.  All of this and her skills made her the perfect fit.
  • At age 28, Beryl was officially recruited to the Missouri Hunters, becoming a field agent.  She quickly became a top agent, in this title for eight years.
  • At age 36, Beryl became The Missouri Artillery Expert for two years.
  • Then, when Mrs. Melissa Lawerence retired, she was proudly promoted to Chief of The Missouri Hunter’s Branch, the woman becoming another mother to Beryl.
  • Five years later, she became the Head of the United States branch too at the age of age 43.
  • She is highly respected, firm, and competent.  
  • Her mother moved to Missouri when Beryl became the head of the Missouri branch.  She visits often and gives advice, lavender for calming, natural medicine, and cookies to The Hunters agents.
