    Cool. Did you know that Delpi was a real place? There is also an oracel there. I would like Delpi to get a message from the future, perferably right before a battle. 'Kay?

    You are a great author! I could never write as awesome as you can! Seriously!
    Name: Wynver
    Gender: Genderless
    Species: Praascal (Only one of its kind)
    Affiliation: Antagonist
    Appearance: In its true form, it appears as a black, reptilian mutant, kind of blurred around the edges, if that makes any sense. See Other for more.
    Personality: Wynver is very crafty and unfair, but makes deals left and right. (I'll let your friend go free if you do this, blah blah...) Spiteful, unforgiving, cruel, and completely guiltless. Never forgets an insult.
    Other: Praascals can live forever, unless they are killed in battle. They lure victims in by mimicking voices perfectly, and put them under a powerful spell that can be hard to break. Once that is done, they can take the shape of their victim and impersonate them perfectly. Only one who is very powerful can see the hints of a Praascal in their midst. Signs include: blurred form, pupilless eyes, being more violent, etc..
