The Pakthryxl Proxy 2
Rumors of a beautiful spirit of the air who scorned the earth have been popular on the Arcadian Line as of late. Sul’s presence was felt, not seen, long before the crew ever met the sylph oracle in person. She suspected the crew’s connection with Yigorin Slate before they arrived at the Mordant Spire, and their rescue attempt confirmed it. Vilya then did whatever was necessary to ensure her quarry was free for her own pursuits, for Yigorin Slate had bound her lover, Balijan, inside a lamp to extract a djinni vizier’s three powerful wishes. When her anger flares, storms become far worse. When satisfied, doldrums become strong winds. She speaks with a Kellesh accent and her trademarked feather tokens have become ubiquitous on the high seas. She masquerades as clouds and flies perfectly on wings of air. Whether they realize it or not, the crew’s success has always fluctuated in response to Sul’s patience with Slate and his abduction of her beloved.
