From a nearby wind pod patch, a devout wind
pod sentinel tending watch keeps a lesser eye over the condition
of the young prymarian since his visits have become more frequent
in the last couple deys. However, since his last glance, the young
boy has vanished! The sentinel's posture turns from stoic to concern
as he stretches his neck in an attempt to locate the wily young
"Are you looking for me?" Kreelos blurts suddenly as
he pops out from atop a nearby tsaranis tree. The sentinel looks
through the glaring sunlight to witness the silhouette of the
prymarian. A growing look of alarm overtakes the sentinel when
he realizes where he is.
"Your grace, there is a putsifa beehive in that particular
tree. The putsifa bees can become quite enraged if their hive
is violated. Please come down from there," the sentinel says,
holding up a hand in front of his eyes.
"Am I threatening you by being here?"
"You are not."
"Then I shall stay."
"What about the bees?"
"They have been out gathering food all morning; I am in
no danger. What is your name, sentinel?"
"Kuleenik Erelta of the former Wellneg Me'Dynasty."
"My father has spoken your name in conversation. Why do
you stand watch in Baron Berakis' wind pod field?"
"I am the protector of the prized wind pod of the baron.
I stand watch in this wind pod patch patiently all dey, every

one of the most famous wind pods in all of Eldan," Erelta
says, regaining his illustrious sentry posture. His head to toe
finely sculpted platinum-laced armor strains to keep back the
weight of his aging body. His armor is made from a Moldokma Turtle
Shell from the Molten Silk Pits on the Dilorn Peninsulas. The
top part of this shell has an opening with a lid for his head,
which he can retreat into during an attack. The lower half is
a large upside-down platinum bowl that resembles a massive hoop
skirt chiding is heard often from this. Nevertheless, its
protection is what makes it so special. This is just an extension
of his armor as his legs dangle inside to keep them from tiring.
In the event he would have to fight, chase, or run after a thief,
he could get up out of it in a sumi. Baron Berakis wind
pod resides underneath it.
Wind pods do not need sunlight to grow. What fuels their growth
is the rich Atracian soil, the pruners water, secret herbs,
and, most importantly, wind shears originating from the Bastynax
Chasm. These gusts penetrate the soil from the chasm with their
mystic essence to coddle the wind pods roots that make them
