A'yen is a humanoid alien, and his people were enslaved so long ago they no longer believe they were ever free. He's lucky, though, compared to the other males of his race. His life was one of almost freedom, lived among the stars for twenty years with one human. A human he loved, and a human who died to keep him safe.
Losing access to the stars, the one place he was free, almost kills his spirit. When he gets back up there, with a new owner who doesn't understand him, his stars don't mean what they did before.
Starry nights continue to play an important role throughout My Name Is A'yen. He lets the heroine in beneath a starry sky as they wait for a nebula light show to start. Later he realizes his feelings for her go far deeper than he thought possible.
Yet through it all he keeps fighting. Keeps reaching for the freedom he knew living in the stars.
I've also spent time looking at a starry night. Last spring my sister and I and some of our friends rented a cabin at a state park during an astronomy society star-gazing night when the ISON comet was visible. We had so much fun! Our two amateur astronomers found all these super cool things for us to look at. Laying there watching the Milky Way slowly become visible was an experience I'll never forget. I'm lucky enough to live in a place that doesn't have a lot of light pollution, but it's still enough the true glory of the Milky Way is hidden. And yes, I did see the comet!
