An ancient prophecy was discovered stating that The Circle of Strangers must come together and travel nine paths to find The Uniter. This Uniter has the potential to change the world, especially the relationship between and amongst Mai and humans. The Mai are an ancient cat-like race; some say their heritage dates back to Bastet and Sekhmet, the ancient Egyptian cat and lion goddess. While some Mai may follow the docile, protector role of Bastet, others look toward Sekhmet, more aggressive and deadly. Warring amongst themselves and with a secret order of humans who are bent on destroying them, the Mai need The Uniter to lead them out of turmoil.
That's where we come in. We are The Circle of Strangers.
If you haven't yet stated your commitment to helping the Mai and would like to do so, head over to ABC Family and sign up to join on our journey down the nine paths. It's not too late to enter and if you hurry, you can still use the password "Circle" on the right hand side of the screen to gain your own Circle charm. The Nine Paths to Chloe King is set to end before the premier of The Nine Lives of Chloe King on June 14th so don't delay - run on over and help us find The Uniter!
For some of us, our journey started when we received a mysterious package in the mail. Within the package was a wooden box decorated with the symbols of the Mai. Upon carefully removing the lid, we discovered a handful of mysterious clues related to The Uniter and a MaiPad with which we were to communicate with the Mai and attempt to help them in the quest. As we receive new messages and clues, we have been sharing them online with you.
The first path introduced us to a courageous young girl and the impact she had on an ancient civilization.
The second path introduced us to Bastet and the history of the Mai.
The third path was the most recent. This path began when we received yet another package. A knock sounded on my door and when I opened it, nothing was there save for a little black box on my doorstep; whoever had delivered it apparently did not want to be seen. Inside the box was a small Bastet charm and and ancient piece of paper with more Mai symbols on it. It took a while, but I was able to use The Book of Mai (you can find it at ABC Family) to decode what the message said.
The Uniter is Chloe King.
Wait, what? That doesn't make sense! Chloe King is just a young, 16-year-old girl. How can she be The Uniter? I wonder if there is more to Chloe King's past than we know...
