Mount Joxynsa was a small mountain above ground from Lormere. Two smaller mountains flanked its sides. The western mountain's name was Mount Moysom and the eastern mountain's name was Mount Xouhn. These mountains together made the Quruvalm mountain range. On Mount Joxynsa's summit sits a small house. The house was built around an ash tree that the owner of the house kept alive through a small ritual she conducted every five years. This was the house of Edya.
Edya was a creature composed mostly of ice with an occasional celestine gem socketed in the outer layer of her body. Six icy wings sprouted from her back. She held a staff made from ash wood. The staff had two icy blue feathers attached to the staff by a string. These feathers belonged to a creature known as the Paloisela. The Paloisela was an ancient beast who lived in the coldest of conditions. The bird had an icy blue coat of feathers that covered the skin of this large bird. The bird had three sharp talons attached to each of its feet. Edya had found the last one of its kind in a small cave in the side of Mount Xouhn a decade ago. It was badly injured and near to death from a group of hunters that cornered. Edya was infuriated and lashed out in anger at the hunters. She screamed an incantation which rang out from the cave and was clearly audible in the nearby villages.
A scribe from Morhedge, by the name of Prouvaire, wrote 'A thundering woman's voice rained down from the mountains, yelling in an unknown language. The voice still repeats vividly in my mind to this day. The voice yelled 'Dabi ovolil kynocil fouret oi ennaka chino aftin tijmumirinil ein tricoi!'
Dyumjor heard this cry and decided that the hunters should die. The hunters were attacked by a force unable to be seen by human eyes. Edya recognized these forces. These forces were surrounded by a dark aura. Their bodies were skeletal and the swords they carried appeared to be made of shadows. These forces were known as the Anisa Sytvolil. Anisa Sytvolil carried souls to their destinations, sometimes requiring violence to rip the souls from their bodies. After the souls were taken from the bodies they dropped limp. A hole opened up beneath their bodies which swallowed them whole before closing back up.
Edya healed the bird and took it back to her house for further care. She named the bird Ahlogneir after the bird's rarity. Ahlogneir became well, but when its time came to leave Edya it didn't want to. Edya decided the bird could stay with her. Ahlogneir and Edya were outside one day when a strange light appeared. This light receded revealing two creatures.
