You find yourself in a room, devoid of any furniture but a stone lectern in the center; on it, there is a tattered book which looks quite old. The room is in ruin, and part of the ceiling broke and fell down revealing a cloudy sky, wild vines latching at the stone walls. The book piques your curiosity, so you pick it up and flip it open, but you can't seem to understand the language it's written it. There are seven bookmarks in the book... you randomly open the page marked by a pale gray colored bookmark; there is a picture of a delicate young man with a cold gaze on it, and you are surprised to be able to read this particular page.

METUS (ㆆ_ㆆ)
ʜᴇ / ʜɪᴍ sɪɴ ᴏғ sʟᴏᴛʜ

Not much is known about the past of the sin of sloth . It seems that the experiences piled up in his life left him crippled with anxiety, social phobia, a very pessimistic, cynical view of the world and a deep mistrust of others. He doesn't seem to want to do much with his life and simply doesn't try to be productive: for that reason, everyone else labeled him as simply a big failure.

¹ is a very rational and collected individual and he most emphatically prefers to keep to himself, valuing mostly logic rather than emotions. He is a actually an emotional sponge, so it's very easy for him to get overwhelmed by other people's emotions, making him lash out in panic. When that happens, only Deinde seems to be able to calm him down. He usually doesn't get along with others because he stutters and panics often in social interactions; he also seems to fear physical touch, although he tries his best to hide his fears from others because he doesn't want to show weakness. He likes to rest, to nap and to sleep; he also has a soft spot for books, coffee and cats.

1. Metus is a latin word that means “fear” or “anxiety”.

About Myrthalic Eggs

For wizards who are unable to find an apprentice, summoning a Myrthalic egg from Fairy World is always an option. It is by no means easy, but it is an option for a wizard who really wants an apprentice.

About the Myrthalic Creature

All the fairies of Fairy World have some degree of magic in them, but none have quite as much as the Myrthalics. For a Myrthalic magic comes as easily as breathing. However this does not mean that they innately know how to use that magic. Myrthalics still need to study in order to actually use their magic safely. Most Myrthalics will only study long enough to no longer be a danger to themself and others. Others become well known enchanters and arcane practitioners. A very small number who have continued their studies into the highest levels of magical use and theory have become the archmages of legends. Wizards powerful enough to bend the very fabric of reality to their will. Tales of these legendary Myrthalics are even known in Ark and beyond.
