Helian Eclipse Crystalwing #1504


While selenic and helian crystalwings exist in harmony and are often kept together to keep their powers balanced, breedings between the two are relatively uncommon, and for good reason. Perhaps due to the complimentary nature of their powers, their offspring tend to be uncanny in nature, their powers defined by absence. These eclipse crystalwings literally eat light, yet also exude it, existing always half in light and half in shadow, never quite part of either world. Helian eclipse crystalwings in particular have the power to fully remove something from perception, and are both feared and respected as a result.


The edges of this egg seem to glow blue, yet the egg itself seems to eat all light.


The crystalwing hatchling that emerged from your egg is quiet and strange. Its blue wings somehow glow on one end and consume light on the other, while its gems are voids edged with a hint of blue light, such that it never looks quite right. In darker corners, it disappears altogether, the only hint of its presence a slight chill that's only partly physical. You've noticed ever since it hatched that sometimes you don't feel things quite correctly, like there's a fog over all your senses, and on those days people quite literally walk through you before noticing your presence. You think you should probably be more disturbed by that, but you're a bit more preoccupied by how hard it is to see or feel anything at all.


Adult helian eclipse crystalwings are a beautiful yet eerie sight, always vaguely shining, yet nullifying all the light around them. They have the terrifying power to remove things fully from perception - an ability that sounds quite useful to thieves and assassins until they actually experience it. Helian eclipse crystalwings don't quite remove things from existence, but isolate them from all sensory interaction. Using this power on living beings seems to be more taxing on the crystalwing than on inanimate objects, and so the experience is rare and usually quite temporary, but the few documented human victims required significant time in recovery. While they can hide inanimate objects for longer, the effect still usually wears off after a few days for the smallest things, and more quickly for larger ones. Even so, stories of lost treasure hoards, carefully hidden by helian eclipse crystalwings, abound.
