    Re: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    Name:Catarina Lenormanda AKA the Knowing.
    Age:Uh...well...19,but has spent a large amount of time suspended in chronolock.
    Class:Uh...that's a complicated question...so...let's just say:Innovative Wizard/Spellord/Magus
    Affiliations:The Court of Miracles,Her Polarian family,Polaris,and a bunch of others.
    Appearance:She is a grey maned unicorn,with bright blue eyes,a glowing horn and fiery orange and red hair.Overall,she is really beautiful.Her hair is long and wavy,and her dress changes from time to time,but is usually violet and purple.Her boots are brown and have a higher heel.Finally,she caries an enormous leather bound book with her.
    Weapon of Choice:Her book and some sort of weird...wand...thing.The wand is from Bartleby's branch,and is filled with jewels.Elik,one of the earliest students of wizard city,and the relic thief,was also an extremely powerful spellcaster,and forged the most powerful wand in the Spiral.One of the few relics ever recovered was a crystal ball,wuth a wand inside it,that could only be extracted by the heir of Elik.For centuries,it remained there,as it was believed Elik had no heir.That is,until Catarina pulled it out,and the wand obeys her like it did her ancestor.
    Personality:Caring,Swift,Hot Headed,and Sarcastic
    Abilities and Powers:Magical Mastery,she knows tons of spells and is a master spellord,a spellbinder,spellmaker,and spellcaster all in one,which is how she can literally improvise spells on the spot and make them into something usable.This,when coupled with all the non magical lore she knows,her intellect,and her amazing dueling skills,make her a powerful enemy and a good ally.She is also capable of mastering most forms of magic with ease and finding simplicity in the most complex of them.Finally,and most importantly,she has pathworking powers that have yet to be fully revealed.
    Backstory:She was born and raised in Valencia,but due to her father having lose all his wealth and turned to piracy,she had to be smuggled into Polaris,where she grew up in a really poor penguin family,before the revolution.After her adoptive parents were killed by a mugger,she vowed to fight all evildoers who stalk the night,and became one of the most brilliant magical scholars,with the fact that at night she would put on a mask and fight crime.She had an eidetic memory,and a proficiency in improvising spells,and she was also a skilled cartomancer,the personal fortuneteller of Josephine,Napoleguin's first wife,on top of other folk.But,she had a terrible secret:she didn't even finish middle school,and had no experience in any magical institution,and thus couldn't possibly be considered anything more than a hedge witch.After this event and that happened,she decided to leave Polaris,and embraced a fate of travelling among gypsies,until she found herself a member of the Court of Miracles.After the Battle of the Passage of the Spirit,though,she was rumored to have died in Shadowmoor,never to be seen of again...or so they thought...

    Re: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    (OOC:Time to make a Christmas character)

    Name:Cupid
    Age:600-ish...though,she looks,acts,seems,and thinks of herself as 13...ish.
    Class:Reindeer Artificer/Spellcaster/Sleigh-Puller/Musician
    Affiliations:Santa and his reindeer,Christmas/Yule spirit,Oberon,Felix Yellowfish,the Court of Miracles,Puck,Others.
    Appearance:She's a reindeer,with large green eyes,and a captivating smile.Her fur is light beige,and gold,with many little white dots.She is usually quadrupedal,and maintains a cute countenance as most reindeer do,though,she prefers to walk on two legs.She is fairly short,even for a deer,and has a mauve belt,with a bunch of tiny little bells,making her sneaking up on people impossible.She can usually be seen at Santa's sleigh,or on her own.And just for fun she speaks with an old Polarian(Russian) accent.
    Weapon of Choice:A bunch of sparkly spacey wacey stuff,the collar with bells,and her hooves...though,she's more or less weaponless,she's not really one to fight.
    Personality:Really really sweet,despises prejudice,loves everyone,somewhat adventurous,a bit stubborn,and obsessive
    Abilities:She can pull upon Yuletide joy and cheer,in order to produce many miraculous results through the magic,and chief among them is her ability of flight,and invisibitiy.She also happens to be a skilled artificer,being capable of jury rigging the most powerful items from even scrap metal,though,she is no match for Michael,or Vivienne.Finally,if she so desires,she can change into a form of pure Christmas joy,in which she can do incredibly powerful thaumaturgy.
    Backstory:She was born in Grizzleheim.Her mother died shortly afterwards,leaving her and her brothers and one sister(Dasher,Dancer,Prancer,Vixen,Comet,Donner and Blitzen) to fend for themselves.However,it was in the mystical forest of Burzee,that the Knooks took good care of them.She was a great friend to the knooks,fayries,and all other inhabitants,even once gaining the favor of Ak!She met Felix through Felix's studies with Ak,the Master Woodsman of the Spiral,and Titania,Queen of Fay.As she was the youngest of her family,she was usually the runt of the litter even though technically she displayed maturity that exceeded the others and showed care for them in an almost maternal way.She developed a thing for Felix,although,he saw her with more care(like one would want to protect a child) rather than any romantic attraction.She left the Forest of Burzee,when Santa Claus was looking for a way to deliver more presents to kids around the Spiral.At the time,the jolly old man had helpers that made his life easier,and he had been helping many of the kids around the world.Cupid had proven herself a very powerful and brave deer in the battle with the Awgwas,so Glossie and Flossie instantly recommended that she be the one to pull Santa's sleigh with them.Of course,she couldn't leave her family,and that is how Santa got most of his reindeer,from Cupid who single handedly pulled off one of the hardest heists from under the nose of the Awgwas,who had stolen an enormous amount of toys.In fact,she had even introduced Felix to good old Clause,when the former was in need of some thaumaturgic knowledge,thus explaning a bit more on the jolly nature of his Pathworking form.So,then she took the path of travelling with Santa,who lived in his small workshop in Grizzleheim,near the Forest of Burzee,but much like our old friend Puck,there's not much Santa's reindeer can do outside of that one week of intense work(December 24th-December 31st)so there always comes a time for Cupid to wander away on her own adventures in the Spiral,using Santa's transportaler to travel to several places...

    Re: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    Name:''The Calligrapher''
    Age:562(24)
    Class:Mystic/Kung Fu Master of the Mind/Swashbuckler
    Affiliations:The Monastery(and with it,the Moodha),Cao Tzu,his students,the City of Shinning Fire,others.
    Appearance:He is a colorful peacock,wearing a robe,that is made to match his feathers.He has the air of a sage about him,though,the smug look on his face oftentimes counters it.He is practically glowing with some sort of spiritual light,and he is dazzling to say the least,as his feathers are beyond beautifil.In fact,one can even get charmed if he unfolds them,and even their memories erased on some occasions.He walks gracefully,and due to the metal on his talons,he isn't really sneaky as the metal is very noisy.At the back of his robe there is a sewed peacock shape,at the sewn circles.As he was once a prince,his clothes are fine and brilliant,and his countenance is powerful,catching the attention of the whole room.FInally,his voice is dry,yet buzzing.
    Weapon of Choice:An arsenal daggers custom made to resemble and fit into his feathers,a guandao hidden in his sleeves,a set of iron claws on his talons,and the sheer power of his will.
    Abilities:His name is the Calligrapher for a very good reason:Lethal precision,and ruthless accuracy.While he is a Kung Fu master of the mind,not the body,he still fights physically,oftentimes more than just with his mind.The most easy thing to compare his physical fighting to,is the Mooshuese art of Choy Li Fut.He has been known to be swift and precise,especially with a sword and lance,having hidden an armory of blades and one lance in his robe.His tail is yet another daunting limb,that can twist and turn with supernatural speed.When enraged,though,or in close combat,he makes waste of no move,using every single tool at his disposal in dazzling displays of fire,blade,and will.He is also shown to have a certain degree of mastery over the eight siddhis,and other similar mystical techniques,and besides that,his time in meditation leaves him with incredible knowledge,and ability,on top of his critical thinking.
    Backstory:He was born and raised in the City of Shinning Fire,where he was a prince among the peacocks,a now extinct dynasty in Mooshu's city,that happened to have invented porcelain,fire works,and other things.As a child,he was shown to be quite curious,and have sympathy towards all things.One by one,people were asking the four year old for advice.At the age of five,he went to the Imperial Library one day,where he saw on display a Scroll,known as the Scroll of the Unknown,with a riddle,deemed unsolvable by the Moodha himself several centuries ago.After working on it day and night,he solved the riddle,which was considered miraculous.A group of elite monks,that were part of a high hill in Shangri-Baa itself,decided to take the wunderkind under their wings,quite literally,because a lot of them were cranes.

    He did not want to leave his parents,or the City of Shinning Fire.However,the authority of the monks was far too great.The years that followed were filled with resentment,as leaving the City and the path of a prince to become a moodhist monk certainly didn't excite him the least bit.While the Dalai Lamba did comfort him for a bit,it did not work out in the end,as he grew more hateful in the next few years,leading to his cocky and arrogant behavior now,yet still the tension that is always present.

    However,he got the hang of it at some point.Following the Path of Silence,he reached enlightment and realizing his dharma,he began to meditate,and travel to the Eternal Source and beyond.It is in that very garden,in that very temple,below the very tree where the Moodha reached Nirvana that he came to his nigh-omnipresence.He spent several centuries meditating there,melting into everything,learning things not yet discovered,and transcending all that had been known,becoming in and of itself,a master of the mind.

    Eventually,though,he exited this state,having journeyed to Eternity and back,he came,seemingly a new man.He discovered,however,that he had become a legend during his time away,and that 500 years or so had elapsed,and that he was now where he was.He was confused,and angry,though,profoundly happy all at once.Leaving eremetic life behind,he set out to become a wanderer,meeting many on his path,as he wanted to reclaim the throne of the now chaotic city where he grew up.

    Among those that he had met,were eight unruly,immature,kids,who taunted the old man,and proven themselves as quite the threat.However,they all showed bravery,valor and ingenuity while saving the old man.One had the power to influence minds,one had the power to teleport into this location and that.One could become as heavy as a mountain,one as light as air.One as large as a buidling,and one as tiny as an atom.Finally,one possessed absolute lordship over all,and could charm them with ease,while one was an incredibly powerful magician.Neither of these could control these powers,however,these eight,were the Eight Siddhis he had mastered in his time,learning that through them,other can be accessed.

    Spending several years teaching them,they are now one crew of travelers and heroes,famous across all the Spiral,and ''the Calligrapher'' walks his path towards the throne once more,in hopes to banish all the evil in it and make it a good city...

    He is deterred,however,many times,by the calls of those who need him.In fact,one of them may just be you...

    aRe: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    Name:Figlio
    Age:Since he's been animated,42,since he's been made,73.In personality,though,18.
    Class::Product of Artifice Magic
    Affiliations:Michael and Vivian,the Court of Miracles,various nobles,royals and famous people throghout history(according to him),the Kraken Skulls tavern,others.
    Appearance:He comes in several forms,an inanimate one,a serpentine,and a humanoid.In his inanimate,he is an ordinary spoon,with a golden lining,and two little pieces of gold going down his shoulders(yes that's a real part of the spoon).When animated,though,that lining becomes his two hands,and his bowl gains an eye.He can walk,talk,and fly.
    Personality::Sarcastic,Bragging,Joking,Fun-loving,and Adventurous.
    Weapon of Choice:Well,the Breath of Life is his main weapon...he's a spoon,he isn't really armed.
    Powers:He can fly,talk and walk,all of which is pretty amazing for a spoon,however,he has another ability:he can bring inanimate objects to life.Such items form an immediate sibling-like bond with him,answering any questions truthfully and performing any task necessary,although,their time alive is limited,as he does not have enough power.Besides that,he can also form walls of protection as well as illusion,both by exploiting the silvery nature of his material(which is silver).Finally,as a spoon,he doesn't die of old age...maybe rust,but not die.
    Backstory:Michael the Artificer was one of the greatest of his craft back in the Court of Miracles in Valencia.Figlio,was made in a silverware factory somewhere in Marleybone and was bought by Michael's wife,when they needed silverware.When he first learned the Art of Enchanting,and especially,Enchanting to bring inanimate objects to life,Figlio was his first test subject,having been named Figlio,son.Soon enough,Michael brought the whole kitchen to life,and the next few years were all one big happy family.This,of course,changed when the Court of Miracles in Valencia was destroyed,and Figlio,did not make it out.Hurt by separation from his ''father'' he wandered the Spiral,kitchen to kitchen,pocket to pocket,bowl to bowl,as a lone spoon.And only recently,one of the people who bought him was Skinny Pete in the Kraken's Skulls tavern.

    Re: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    Name:Ambitious Phoebe Euphrasie

    Age:10

    Class:Intuitive Witch/Daughter of Death

    Appearance:She's a small fawn,wrapped in either a red dress,that's bright and colorful,or a set of dirty clothes,coiled in a sweater,it too red,though a more mellow hill.She has a brilliant voice and two bright brown eyes,her mane being a much lighter shade,to match the rest of her red countenance.When angered,though,she shifts into a powerful form,wherein she proves just how much she is a queen of death and life.While that happens rarely,this form is nonetheless menacing,from the smell of decay to the aura of fear.

    Affiliations:The Court of Miracles,the Marleybonean's Orphanage,Death,Vidocq,Others.

    Weapon of Choice:a small locket,which is the last remaining item from her parents,and a

    Personality:She is really sweet and hopeful,although,not as much as Cupid or some other characters.She hates injustice,and she is ambitious as can be.

    Abilities and Powers:Besides being so sweet and adorable that very few would want to attack her,she is capable of getting out of most negative situations.Besides this,however,after having learned she was the daughter of Death himself,she has gained a whole host of necromantic abilities.This includes a full knowledge of the afterlife,and a power over life and death as a whole,a form she can assume to further her necromancy,sangromancy,and nocturnal magic,with a mastery of all three,giving her an edge in combat.This,when coupled with her ability to keep people from dying,gives her a powerful healing bonus.She also has a frenzied dog pet,making her have a potent ally.

    Backstory:She was born in the Old Marleybonean Court of Miracles.Her mother was Fantine,a member of the Court and a highly respected necromancer and nocturnal mystic.Her father was Death himself,and the reasons for the child were unknown.What was was that Death had left the lady when his daughter was only two years of age,leaving them both onto the streets.Realizing that she could not provide for her daughter,Fantine gave her to the Marleybonean's Orphanage,hoping that they would care for her.

    They did not.Years went on as Pheoebe was forced to sleep in a drawer,work all day,wiping the floors until they shined like the top of the grandest buildings in Wolfminster Abbey.She was mistreated and covered with fear all over her,as her caretaker was a child-hating old woman who spent more time on the streets than in the Orphanage(the only reason she remained at her job was because having any job was at the time miraculous).She spends a lot of time thinking and realizes her parents may still be alive,and sneaks off to try to find them,where she meets her current canine companion and many other friends,but eventually,she is forced to go back to the Orphanage,with no luck.

    In the meantime,Fantine,her mother,dies,and an escaped convict who is now a successful money-lender and her brother,vows to retrieve the girl for her and care for her.He believes that being seen caring for an orphan would bring him more publicity,and he is interested in that,so he goes and adopts her right before she is to be punished.

    So,he takes her in,and after some time passes,the two bond,until he decides to adopt her,because he has grown to care for her so much.However,two con-men announce themselves as her parents and decide to adopt her.Right as she is about to live her life,and the con-men are to claim their reward(because there was a financial reward for anyone who would find the girl's parents),Death himself appears,and has a tearful reunion with his daughter.There is some distrust at first,but the con-men are captured,the orphanage is renewed and everyone is happy,while Faye decides to spend some time with her dad.

    Years and years have passed,and she has existed outside of time and space altogether,and after two decades,she is back with Eugene Vidocq.The two live happily,until he dies(which is two years later),and she now wanders the Spiral on her own,with pride and vigilance,helping any in need,and still seeks to restore her mother's precious Court to it's former glory...

    Re: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    Name:St Nicosquiddus

    Age:73 years old,but has been dead for an immense amount of time

    Class:Squid Hermit

    Appearance:He's a squid,with a Bishop's hat.He lives in a little bathtub,and uses his staff to move around with the little wheels,however,the tub is hidden under a fine turquoise cloak,which is why it seems to people like he has legs,with the tentacles sticking out behind the cloak,furthering the illusion,and a tiny clerical collar,and a ruff.He has four sleeves,each with one of his little tentacles.One of his hands is free,one carries around a long staff,with a twisting top to it,one hand a censer with incense,and the final one carries a book,shaped to it a tiny black orb,a bell,and several little statuettes representing the various spirits.Finally,he speaks squid,his voice muffled in it which is why few can understand what he's saying.

    Affilations:The Order of the Shadow Sun,the Requiem Bell,the Nameless God,the Spirit World and it's inhabitants,the Shadowmoor Cathedral,the Shadowmoor City,St Lucio,the Court of Miracles,Others.

    Weapon of Choice:The Censer,Plethora of relics,a small book,a staff,and more powerful than anything,his voice.

    Personality:Laughing,Philanthropic to the max,Wise,Caring,Innocent,Loveable,Devoted,Understa nding,Tolerant.

    Abilities and Powers:He lives even beyond the grave,walking in the same manner as most of the ghostly clergy in Shadowmoor.Being a spirit,he can do all sorts of things like go invisible,and pass through walls,overhear conversations and cannot be hit.He can enlighten people,and possess them,literally bringing before them the beauty of everything.He is notoriously powerful,considering he has the whole plethora of priesthoods at his command,along with the abilities of most priests in Shadowmoor,including the Lemure.The Priesthoods of every place in the Spiral allow for exorcism of any other spirit of the Spiral,the commandment of miracles through those spirit's powers,and a whole set of things,that could never be done by any other than Shadowmoor's priests.Besides that,times in eremetic life brought him many miraculous abilities that he can perform.He is a squid with tentacles and many of them,which gives him the ability to perform normal Squid things.Finally,he is loveable and hard to hate,so it is unknown just how much damage anyone would inflict.

    Backstory:Born and raised in Skull Island and ran away when he was young,mostly due to conflicts within the family that made living with those people impossible.As a child he travelled quite a bit around the Spiral,beginning in places like Mooshu,Krokotopia,and Aquila,continuing through Avalon and much of the civilized world.After having spent a year or two running around from inn to inn like any orphan would,he decided to isolate himself in a mysterious mountain that overlooked the city of Shadowmoor.

    He spent more than ten years up there,living only off of what was necessary,mostly meditating until he one day gazed into a pond,and it filled with smoke.And thinking it was simply some sort of dark magic,he quickly tried to look away only to find the smoke rising above him.He asked the Spirit World for a sign,and it's skies turned to fire,and it's ground began to shake,as from the smoke avatars of the Shadow Sun,which by now replaced the real sun,told him to seek a certain man within the church,and tell him that the Spirits send him,and that he must be the one to surrender to them the Requiem Bell,a relic that the Spirits had given him.

    Skeptical at first,he went down to the City of Shadowmoor,and presented the Bell,which was immediately rejected by the then bishop as pure balderdash,and suggested this offense against the Cathedral will not be tolerated.The Saint levitated above the ground,avoiding all retribution,and immediately dazzled them as by ringing the Requiem Bell did he undo the entire scene and both he and then Bishop found themselves back at the beginning of the interview.

    Concluding him to be a real saint,the Requiem Bell became one of the most famous relics of it's time,and the Saint a priest in every right,and after years he climbed up to the top of the hierarchy.This Bishop of Shadowmoor ended up dying 15 years before the Fall of Shadowmoor,and was sad that he saw it's end.

    The Requiem Bell's purpose is to keep the dead alive.It is why and how the dead and the living walk together in Shadowmoor,besides the Obzedat,of course.He now wanders the ruins of the city,awaiting the restoration of the Cathedral,but may materialize towards the remaining members of the Court,or more often,the Shades of the Cathedral's clergy,the Lemure.

    Re: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    Name:Garuda AKA Syena

    Age:Unknown,though,practically ageless,as old as the Spiral(though,not the First World)

    Class:Rajah Spirit/Garuda/Dharmapala

    Affiliations:Garuda,VIshnu,Birds,the Court of Miracles,

    Appearance:Once there was a time when he was a massive spirit,glowed as bright as the sun.These days,though,he appears an ordinary Aquilan eagle sorcerer.He wears a golden crown and has several snakes around him,some as jewelry,some as clothing.His expression is right,his wings fairly scarlet,and his body seemed to be made of gold.Besides his radiant aura,he wore a maharaj's outfit,brilliant and colorful,from Rajah.His talons are sharp and iron-like,as is his beak and he has a gaze that will bring you to your knees.

    Weapon of Choice:A whole array of Astras,a magical lotus,and a (trident) which some rumor to be Shiva's personal one.

    Powers:He doesn't age,he doesn't die.He is Garuda,and as such has a strong mastery over Vamachara,which is the manipulation of reality,and illusion,the equivalent of magic.He was shown to be very powerful,as he could defeat all of Rajah's spirits at once,and take the Amrita.Beyond that,he flung Shadowmoor into the Spirit World.However,ever since he gave up his powers,they've been significantly toned down,as he now walks much like any ordinary mortal eagle.Beyond his immortality,and magical abilities,he can destroy any obstacle and take advantage of any opportunity

    Personality: Determined,Direct,Proud,Kind-Hearted,Virtuous,Controlling,Opportunistic,Stern.

    Backstory:A long time ago we find ourselves in the first world.One of the Spirits had two daughters,and granted them each their wish.One wished for a thousand children and the other for two perfect ones.This was,at the time that the war between the Titans was beginning,one of them supporting the Tritons,the other the Dragons.Of the mother of the perfect ones,one tried to speed up the child's development,and this left him deformed,and as the egg hatched,she threw him away,but not before the child placed a curse,stating that his mother will be a slave of her sister's once her second son is born.

    Towards the end of the War of the Titans in the First World,Garuda was born from the egg,obliterating an entire battlefield,until he lost all that power and energy and came out as the brilliant creature he was.When Lady Nightstar and Bartleby fixed the Spiral,the mother,Vintate, had to serve her own sister,Kadru as she was bound by the curse to do so,and had entered a foolish bet.

    Resolving to release his mother from this state of bondage, Garuda approached the serpents and asked them what it would take to purchase her freedom. Their reply was that Garuda would have to bring them the elixir of immortality, also called amrita. It was a tall order. The amrita at that time found itself in the possession of the Spirits, who guarded it zealously, since it was the source of their immortality. They had ringed the elixir with a massive fire that covered the sky. They had blocked the way to the elixir with a fierce mechanical contraption of sharp rotating blades. And finally, they had stationed two gigantic poisonous snakes next to the elixir as deadly guardians.

    Undaunted, Garuda hastened toward the abode of the Spirits intent on robbing them of their treasure. Knowing of his design, the Spirits met him in full battle-array. Garuda, however, defeated the entire host and scattered them in all directions. Taking the water of many rivers into his mouth, he extinguished the protective fire the Spirits had thrown up. Reducing his size, he crept past the rotating blades of their murderous machine. And finally, he mangled the two gigantic serpents they had posted as guards.

    On his way back to the Naga,he met with Vishnu,one of the most powerful of the Spirits,and the two decided not to fight,but Vishnu made a proposal.Garuda would serve him,until his time ended,and in turn,Garuda would gain the powers of the Spirits,as well as immortality,without the Amrita.Garuda agreed.

    On his way after that,Garuda met Indra,a lord of the Sky,who gave him a proposal,if Garuda brought him the amrita after he had given it to the serpents,then Garuda would be allowed to command the forces of reality in Rajah,and all the many Spirits that were subordinates of Brahma,Vishnu and Shiva.A mastery of the art of Vamachara,magic.He agreed.

    At long last, Garuda alighted in front of the waiting serpents. Placing the elixir on the grass, and thereby liberating his mother Vinata from her servitude, he urged the serpents to perform their religious ablutions before consuming it. As they hurried off to do so, Indra swooped in to make off with the elixir. The serpents came back from their ablutions and saw the elixir gone but with small droplets of it on the grass. They tried to lick the droplets and thereby split their tongues in two. From then onwards, serpents have split tongues and shed their skin as a kind of immortality.

    The cycle of the Spiral ends in Kali Yuga,the final phase of existence.One quarter of the world is virtue,the rest if vice.The influence of the Spirit World decreases as the veil seems broken.Garuda however,doesn't see this as the downfall of people.but rather their ascent,as now they're autonamous,and considers that they've already made their life brilliant,and the world is an utopia.So,he readily agrees to come to the world and help people get through Kali Yuga.

    He surrendered much of his power and took on a more mortal form that would be easier to work with.He was horrified in every way to see how corrupted people truly were.They weren't forging their destinies,or creating their worlds.They weren't enjoying unity,autonomy,happiness,and peace,they were at war and at destructions,they were making each other suffer for little to no reason,as if the evolution of people was backwards.

    So,he ended up lost,incapable of fulfilling his mission,yet still incapable of abandonning it,bound in this mortal form.

    He travelled for a long time and in the end found himself in the City of Shadowmoor,and joined the Court of Miracles.THe Court promoted a philosophy which he tied to,and also housed many miracleworkers,as well as practically ran the city.And indeed,the city was the closest thing to perfection in the physical realm in his eyes.

    In this perfect world,he decided to reclaim his long lost power,and show the world he was Garuda,there to help them revel the rest of Kali Yuga until ''the End''.He connected in massive amounts to the Shadow Sun,literally becoming an avatar of it's power,radiating with it.He was once more Garuda in his fullest power,and was the protector and patron of the City of Shadowmoor.

    When the BAttle of the Passage of the Spirits began,he was enraged at the desecration of his Cathedral,for he was one with the Shadow Sun at the time.He abandonned all of his power and channeled it to keep the city intact.He was among the main ones to plunge Shadowmoor into the Spirit World,as the Shadow Sun's avatar.He mostly gave up this connection to the Shadow Sun,and the ancient powers that he had.He woke up mortal...well...almost.He couldn't age,and he couldn't die easily.He could still use his powers,though,to a much lesser extent and still channel both the Shadow Sun,the Requiem Bell,any other relic,or the Spirits of Rajah,but he was significantly weaker,more or less deprived of all his power.

    But to him,this was enough,as he followed Vasu's and Lavanya's game of cat and mouse,now turned a game of dog,cat and mouse.The NAga and Garuda hate each other.On top of that,Vishu and the Rakshasa hate each other.So in this threefold conflict,there was no definitive answer,until he simply pulled out and followed the trail of the pirates that may one day restore Shadowmoor...

    Re: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    Name:Walter Spellbottom,although,he goes by many many alternative names,these include Petar Volkoff,Mouse Ling So,and Walter the Amazing.
    Age:Unknown,though,fairly young
    Class:Illusionist/Stage Magician/Con-man/Conjurer/Necromancer/Levitator/Hypnotist/Mesmerist
    Affiliations:Portobello Road,his fans,the Marleybone Court of Miracles,Wizard City,
    Appearance:He is a rat magician.His eyes a vibrant and scary red,that glows in the dark,but can hypnotize one into submission or into believing any delusion this one desires.He wears a fine suit,a stovepipe,and a black vest.His tie is grey,and his pants are fine.His pants have some sort of glow to them,as the lines seem to be made of pure diamonds.
    Weapon of Choice:An array of dazzling tricks,his robe,hat,and a set of throwing knives,his tricks as well.
    Powers:He is a master illusionist,with a knack for contorting the fabric of reality into bringing something revolving around Theatre Magic,but when applied to traditional stage magic(which isn't really magic) mingles the nature of reality,as the illusions mix with them.He is a con,and an incredibly cunning and intelligent one at that.His abilities as a magician give him many advantages that come with sleight of hand.He is really good at throwing daggers,and beyond that he revels in dazzling his audience,even if his audience is his enemy.He is a gifted medium,with an ability to align with the spirits of the other side,be they demons,shades,or wanderers,or anything in between.His knowledge of Chaos Magic and Myth Magic gives him the ability to bring memorized historical facts to life,but also hope from system to system,as the Chaotic side of Myth is an extremely eclectic kind of Myth magic.It really doesn't matter!He can fool many and is also a master of mesmerism and hypnosis,even to the deadly point of controlling the mind of someone on the other side of the island.He is skilled in deception,misdirection,and overall,in hiding things,as very few even know he has any authentic magical abilities.
    Personality:Tricky,lying,cunning,incredibly intelligent,known for great sleight of hand,highly skeptical and is famous for debunking fake wizards,follows an agreement to the letter(with room to wiggle if he will of course) and in the same way he beguiles other,so too can he beguile himself to the enemy side when he knows he is losing.As such,his opponents cannot harm him,and his allies cannot blame him for anything unseemly he does.At the same time,though,he has many virtues,because he is no coward.Far from it,his valor and hubris oftentimes go hand in hand.He is persistent and known for perseverance,autonomous in what he does,and beyond that,he displays discipline if needed.
    Backstory:He was born in Marleybone City,in the more shady and underground Court of Miracles.His parents died when he was fairly young,first his mother in the birth of his sister,then his father out of starvation.Years passed,and his sister was widowed with seven children, with the eldest being eight and the youngest being one year old.He fended from theft for a time.For a time,he deceived,and fended in this manner,living mostly as a criminal in the shadiest side of the city.One of his victims was Hairy Houndini,one of the most famous escapists,conjurers,and illusionists.Instead of reporting him to the constables,Houndini offered to teach him everything he knew,while Walter readily agreed,spending three years studying not only with Houndini but with Sorcar and other magicians and wizards.He thought of magic in general as a fraud and after having gathered a significant flow of prosperity for him and his sister,he took advantage of the Marleybonean people's obsession with all things Mooshuese,and created an exotic alias of Mouse Ling Soo.As a non-Marleybonean performer,he realized that he could bypass his stage fright by never speaking.He was famous for many marvelous tricks,like summoning a boy out of a seemingly full vial of water.He journeyed from one spot to another then another,settling at some point in Simeon Binx's inn in Polaris,and a year prior to that in Wizard City,gaining his more formal education.While he was there,in Polaris,he met Lavish Maria LAverne,the Puppetmaster of the Court of Miracles.He had earned a name in Marleybone as a master at debunking fake magicians,and sought to do so to Maria,only to discover her theatre magics were without flaw,and that he could not debunk her.He learned the secrets of mesmerism,Hoodoo,theatre,and illusion from her,as he did with many of the others,even joining Polaris's Court of Miracles,and Shadowmoor's.He was revealed as a fraud by a notorious inspector and ran away,under the pseudonym of Petar Volkoff,only to find his sister and her children starving.Having more courage then reason,he stole bread to feed them,earning himself a life sentence in prison in the process.When Malistaire invaded Newgate,though,he used all that he had learned from Houndini to escape,pulling off a daring plan,with success and now he lives on the run.While in prison,he learned to harness extremely powerful and dark magics,because of the innate attraction of the dark spirits to places of woe.His sister died,and he ended up caring for her kids,until he left them at an unknown friend to whom he sends letters to to this day,sending with it wealth to keep them alive.That is where he finds himself now,earning a living as a forgotten memory,on the run from the authorities,and fighting a harsh world for a chance to keep his nieces and nephews alive.

    Re: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    Name:Araneae Pa'uk

    Age:500+

    Class:Spider Queen/Shadowmancer/Necromancer/Theurgist/Buccaneer/Privateer/Nocturnomancer/Diviner

    Affiliations:the Marchessa,the Shadow Web,the Court of Secrets,her own Hive,Others

    Weapon of Choice:the Arachnachitis,her fangs,legs,webs,spells,claws,and tendrils.

    Appearance:She is an enormous spider,the size of three horses.SHe is black with several colors around her,mostly violet,and green.These patterns contort around a giant crystal in her abdomen,while the inside of her cephalothorax has the pouch spoken of earlier.Her carapace is solid and hard to break,while her legs are swift,sharp and obsidian black.Her eyes are many,four on each side,and one on the center,nine in total.Her fangs are two well visible chelicera,with small claws used for gripping and working.She is heralded by her children,and her powers are great.She is capable of speech,and her voice is preceded by a cackling little noise,while her voice is slithering and soothing.

    To walk among the mortals,however,she needs to assume a more...appealing form,as a giant spider in Marleybone is not a common occurence.She assumes the form of a woman.Her hair is black and her eyes are a shade of turquoise that borders on purple,and sometimes even slips into purple.Her lips carry a lot of lipstick,and her bonnet is in a shade of violate,while the rest of her attire is mauveine mingled with white,her attire that of a flapper,at it's core,and her spiders following her within her clothings,sometimes even heralding her coming.

    Personality:Stern,Strong,Cunning,Caring,Bargaining ,Loyal,Brave,Vengeful.

    Powers:As a spider,she is extraordinarily swift and strong,agile and has a strong bite.She has many supernatural properties to her,and her webs are laced with abilities that exceeds the mortal ones,as they can even be used to smith weapons of incredible power.Her venom is similar,and potent.It is constant,and can do many things beyond killing,like mind control,madness,or other.Her exoskeleton makes her immune to some kinds of damage,although,many kinds of it leave her extremely vulnerable.Her venom has enchanting properties,and her body contains more space,as an entire nest is within a separate pocket.She is a mistress of many kinds of magic.She is known,primarily,though,as a master of Life and Death,as rarely does anyone with her blessing die.Many of them bypass rebirth and come back,while others are animated.She also has a mastery of storm magic,as it allows her to do all sorts of things in alignment with her natural abilities.And finally,of course,she was born a Shadowmancer,and will remain so.

    Backstory:She started her life in the Hive,as another one of the awful beasts.She was raised for pit fighting and battles.However,one day,she was faced against a Burrower warrior,and came out blind,due to Blessings placed upon the blade.Having lived where many have suffered,she understood how to connect to the Shadows,and began commanding all the spiders that were around to bring her anything she desired,making her life in jail a prosperous one.

    This life ended when the Magi discovered she was blind and threw her to the streets where they knew she wouldn't survive.She spent most of her life in an abandonned shed,and a burrower boy,a sugar glider,discovered her and the two played together,as master and pet.They had fun and were happy that she found a home.Years went on,until the boy's wood was burned down,and penniless,his family was living on the Silent Market's grey streets.She grew to hate the Arachna for what they did to her and her family.

    She had knowledge of the dark regions,she knew the layout of the places and how to use magics,and so she became the boy's personal spy and ally.Eventually,though,his parents found out and demanded she be thrown as far away from him as possible.Since then,she has grown to disdain the burrowers as well as the Arachna.The boy did join the Last Widow,and was a known revolutioner,but that's another tale.

    She travelled through the Khonda desert,and the Hive,and even beyond the Spiral,seeing things like Wolfminster Abbey in MArleybone,Temples in Skull Island,and libraries in Wizard City.Tinkershops in Florenzia,and fjords in Grizzleheim.

    She came back from these travels enlightened and began building her own empire,through parthenogenesis.She learned to use her poison to enslave some into building her kingdom for her and her children and this parthenogenesis came with a gift:arachnachitis.It was a stone of spirit binding and scrying that she had gained from the Shadow Web itself.It was a symbol of her royalty,and when it permanently merged to her she had access to powers she never imagined she had.

    Prosperously,several decades passed upon her throne,until the Kingdom crippled internally.Since then,though,she realized that having a Center of all affairs was inconvenient as it gave the enemy a place to aim his attacks.Therefore,she made it mobile by making a center in a pouch insider her body she had.And it was at that moment that she used her travel's worth of knowledge to connect an intricate web of...well...webs,and let her Hive reach out past Khrysalis to the jungles of Zafaria,Azteca,and Skull Island.The woods,of Avalon,and Albion.The sewers of Marleybone and the Polaris.

    She was blinded by a blade of the sun,and seeks liberation from this blindness.Liberation she may never find.But her connections go much deeper as she met figures in the Court of Miracles,including the Marchessa,with whom she is an ally to this day...

    Re: the Court of Miracles -the Characters of the Undead Obeah

    Name: Harvey a.k.a. The Dreamweaver, the Clockstopper, the Unraveller of Seams, ect.

    Age: No one truly knows.

    Class: Shapeshifter/Trickster/Truand Lord

    Affiliations: The (fallen) Valencian Court of Miracles, La Marchesa,

    Apperance: Though he is a natural Shapeshifter, his usual appearance is that of a rather large hare almost as large as an average human. His attire is usually somewhat flashy and colorful and in a style similar to a circus ringleader. his furnish usually a whitish-bage, but it also changed on a whim, depending on his mood or preference.

    Weapon(s) of choice: Again, very hard to say, though he seems unnaturally proficient in a disturbing amount of weapons and tricks, both mundane and magical.

    Personality: Jovial, merry, opportunistic, delirious, enigmatic, underhanded, wagering, logical, and a shady prankster.

    Background: Little is mown about the Dreamweaver's past. He defiantly has ties with Marleybone and Albion, but there is no trace of his upbringing there, or anywhere for that matter. Some call him a changeling, others a Pooka . However, whether you consider him a dark fiend or a lively shapeshifter, none who know him can deny his aptitude and efforts in maintaining the Court of Miracles in Valencia's intrigues and machinations. He simply appeared in the Thuand's Gathering in Polaris where he began to climb the hierarchy with abnormal sped until he was given the title of the Truand Lord of Valencia's Court. There, he reforged the Court from a rather passé brach of the Courts to an epicenter of rogues, tricksters, and entertainment for hire, as long as they don't betray them, and in turn Harvey himself. Also, he eradicated the civil disputed with swift and concise judgement and disallowed any fighting within the Court itself, save for their arena where people could bet of brawls and duels between different Truands. Finally, he had been able to give the Corts many connections with powerful figures including La Marchesa, a woman of extremely high esteem in Valencia who's network of rogues and spies were once competitors before Harvey intervened. She is also one of the few people he has ever entrusted his deep secrets of his powers and his past to. Nevertheless, those who made enemies of him were slowly driven insane as they began to think more and more people around them could be the Clockstopper in disguise and waiting to dig his fingers into their minds, not knowing that he had already done so long before their delusions began.

    Where is he now? Few know. Last he was seen, the Valencian Court was being obliterated and the Lord of the carnival was decimating the onslaught of Armada in the hopes that the others could escape. Many of them were saved by his grace including Maria, Simeon, Vivian, and many more. However, few believe that he had died, despite his supposed execution by the Armada. Accoring to rumors, he is still captive, refusing to reveal the locations of the survivors that he has kept so good tabs on. Then again, they also say that he ad returned to Marleybone where he began to create his own crime syndicate. Them a few more claim that he had become an informant to the Frogfather. And even More claim that he had become a prince of thie...

    "Les Esprits sourient sur mes travaux, et de nouveau, la Grande Cathedral montrera sa dévotion a eux."
    (the Spirits smile upon my works, and anew, the Great Cathedral will show it's devotion to them.)
