My 15th OC, Myste.
Location: Lucidity Cascades
When spirits are first summoned, they are given a unique wooden totem that helps channel the mana from the Crest into their bodies. They must keep their totem with them until their Awakening, a ritual performed by Myste at the Lucidity Cascades just south of Eldris.
Myste has the ability to shapeshift based on other spirits’ perceptions of themselves - she becomes blurred and distorted to visitors who have not found their self-acceptance, but to those who have truly embraced who they are, she becomes completely identical and can remove a spirit’s reliance on their totem though the Awakening ritual. By tapping directly into the Crest, a spirit’s ability increases immensely and they gain complete control over their powers.
“I’m ready this time.” It was the third time Cinder had visited, but this time was different - the last few years of intensive training had built his mind and body.
“Follow me.” Myste smiled and led him into the sky-lit chamber behind the falls.
When the shapeshifting began, water around the edges of the chamber surrounded Myste and began to alter her appearance, the roaring sound of waves echoing back through the caverns, but ending silence. She emerged from the floating, liquid orb, looking exactly like Cinder. “Congratulations, today will be your Awakening.”
As she received the totem from Cinder’s hands and began the Awakening process, he could feel strength flowing through his body. It was nighttime, but not even in the sun’s rays had his powers ever felt this strong. The scar on his chest and his veins glowed red as fire, as did his left eye and markings on his face. Steam formed around his body as the heat evaporated the water on the ground. This was his true potential.
Myste is one of the most respected spirits and has developed a calm, tranquil personality over the millennia. She naturally became the wise, advising figure, and the vicinity near the Cascades has become a meeting ground for mingling and a casual place for celebration.
The eldest of the spirits and mother to all. Myste, the Spiritwaker.
