Legend of Peresh – LoG&S NPC

Peresh is feline in appearance they say.  Pure white but all female curves and dangerous too.  She calls herself Felinine with some form of amusement with those that confront her.  Of course, if anyone knows them they would never confront her.

Some say she is an assassin, some say thief.  I have never met her so I have to say she is a legend.  She has been around the Stair a long time, silently watching.  Anyone that threatens her or her world seems to go missing in the dark depths of the stair, or the middle of the Agora, seems not to matter.

You say you are looking for her?  Pah, shows you are either brave or real dumb.  Only advice I can give you is make sure she can always see your hands and watch your P’s and Q’s with her.  She is as playful as a kitten, but as deadly as a puma.  With those gorgeous green eyes you will never know if she is one or the other until it is too late.

If you truly want to meet her though there is a way to get her attention.  Seems the Gossamer World she is originally from, Bagheera, is a primal world full of life, forest and felines.  They hunt there, rule there and she once reigned there.  But it is also said of Bagheera that a race of rock men lived their once.  They were the soul of the world and created the abundance of life.  Peresh was Queen then and arrogant.  She demanded much of the diminutive rock men.  She demanded that they sacrifice others in her name, not realizing that it was they that were in control of life there rather than she.

The head clansman of these people warned Peresh but she did not listen.  The people awoke after a lounging day nap to find the colours of the land had begun to drain.  The vivacity of life was far less.  The rock people of Bagheera had left and her land was dying.  Should you be able to find trace of these men on any of the Gossamer Worlds you travel through and let it be known that you have information, Peresh will seek you out, and probably think twice before killing you…

An amulet that mostly hangs from her neck from a golden strand of hair from a Titan.  An emerald is seated in the middle of a platinum decoration.  The device has the ability to alter shape to a ring and is absolutely a requirement for Peresh to cast Sorcery.  She has reconciled with the rock men of her world at this stage of her power and this is the gift that they have given her, the power of sorcery.  If she uses it wisely they will return to Bargheera and restore the balance.
