Deep within the swamplands of Naeniwa, in the heart of the darkest of forests, dwelled a creature more terrifying than all the beasts of land or sea. With the force of its breath it could change the course of a war. With one single glance it could cripple a king. And with a simple grin it could thwart a raging army. This was no ordinary creature, you see, for this magnificent and ominous beast was a woman. Bewitching and frightening sure enough, but woman through and through. She was the reigning High Priestess of Naeniwa, but was known as the Star Reader throughout the Kingdom’s other lands. There were few alive that knew her real name. Most did not know of her at all, save for the rumors of an eerie yet beautiful oracle that followed in her wake.
