An anpean alphyn is by some regarded as a gift from a higher power, celebrating the life of the deceased. Others see it as the personification of a fragment of the departed soul, left behind to protect their loved ones. Whether the truth lies in one or the other, or is to be found somewhere else entirely, the fact remains that an anpean alphyn is a bringer of good luck. Your harvest will be plentiful, deals will be settled in your favour, and are you a student you will succeed in your tests and exams with ease.

Anpean alphyns appear rarely and only under very specific circumstances. There are many different funeral rites around the world, some highly complex and detailed, others simple. One of the more spectacular has its origins in the Etain desert but has since spread to various corners of the world. The deceased is cremated on a funeral pyre, and it is believed that their soul is then guided into the afterlife through the smoke curling into the air. On rare occasions a golden anpean alphyn egg may be found in the resulting ashes. This is taken as a sign that the deceased has led a charitable and generous life, for which their loved ones are now rewarded. Receiving an anpean alphyn in this way will bring luck and good fortune, and rumour has it that once the time comes, the anpean alphyn will be there to guide its humans into the afterlife.
