from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cyann - Daughter of the Stars (original title Le Cycle de Cyann ) is a series of comics by François Bourgeon , which was created in collaboration with Claude Lacroix . The work can be assigned to the genre science fiction .


The heroine of the title is Cyann Olsimar, who is at the beginning of her adult life. At first she is shown as an easy-going, cynical and arrogant member of the ruling upper class of the Majo. It is only through her friendship with Nacara ThilvarO from the lower class of the Mino that she maintains contact with the world outside of her own class. The outbreak of a deadly plague, purple fever, which only affects men, on their home planet Olh forces Cyann to take responsibility in the search for an antidote. Cyann is tasked with leading an expedition to the planet Il Planeten, where she finds both the cause and the cure for the disease. The plague was caused by the believers of the BOrn, a religious group on Olh. On IlO Cyann gets access to the gates, portals to a network that enables travel through space (and time) and is authorized to use it by the guards via this network. While Cyann decides to explore the network, she lets Nacara take over the government on Olh. Subsequently, in the course of the series, she experiences adventures on different planets, whose different natural and cultural living conditions are presented in detail.
