About Edit

Spirit People that Sophie Etoile's paintings brought into the World As It Is from someplace more mysterious and distant than the Dreamlands. ~ The Onion Girl


Characteristics Edit

  • Their spirits seem too large for their bodies, they can be felt before they enter a room—a pressure in the air—a presence that make the pulse quicken and a smile spread across the face.

Nature Edit

When in their presence, one can feel like they are dreaming—that the room you are in has been transported to the Dreamlands.
