The spirit of the Eastern Peaks is… a character. His echoing laugh is said to carry for miles down the winding canyon channels, haunting the passage of unknowing travellers.
Spirits often have a clear purpose, but no-one really knows what this strange fellow is all about. While he seems mostly kind, he does play an notably antagonistic role with some, chasing them away or leading them astray in the knotted caves and paths. So far, none have been able to guess why he does this, but as he always lets the traveller go in the end, we can be thankful he’s not entirely malicious. It appears to be his way of testing.
He’s never granted magic to anyone, so perhaps no-one has ever passed.
