[Elnin] Eldritch Queen - [OVER! Happy Hallowen!] by manaberry [Elnin] Eldritch Queen - [OVER! Happy Hallowen!] by manaberry
Huzzah! Our first Royal in quite some time! I.. really struggled with her design I gotta say. Not because I wasn't enjoying working on her, but because I sincerely wanted her to be super special for all of you ;v;. And I am legit crying right now because ONE DAY.. ONNNEE DAAAYY I will get through a big design without wanting to change every goddang thing before the end. One day. But today is not that day.. and I will have to update this tomorrow with the changed outfit cause I'm nitpicky like that xD;;

That being said.. I really do hope you guys enjoy her art and story, so without further ado~! <3




"A long time ago, deep in the misty marshes, there lived a fair elnin queen. She was generous and gentle, and beguilingly beautiful, and above all, loved by all who met her. Not only was she loved by the mortal folk, in fact, but the fey folk loved her, and were endlessly drawn to her.

Oh, but the fey spiritkin are a dangerous source of attention, as everyone knows, and it did not take long for our fair queen to meet a king of another kind. The infatuated fey lord was a terrible creature, all shadow and mercilessness and so intensely... strange. The story says this queen was spirited away to the fey realms by the dark king, where she lived for an untold lifetime in the place where the spirits rule, where the fey run rampant through the ether and all time and reason hold no sway. They say she was never seen again, and instead became a queen among the eldritch.

... However.

The spiritkin are ever fickle, and there is another story that now finds its beginning at the end of this tale of a stolen queen. Another elnin resides in the marshes these days, a queen with a gaze that smolders like banked coal in deep shadow. A queen with an uncanny ability to gather all manner of fey apparitions to her- barghests, beggies, brownies, boggarts, bomlins, and just about everything in between. Inexplicably.. the marsh folk all swear she even holds sway over these mercurial spirits, commanding them to do her bidding. An eldritch energy lays over this mysterious queen like a thick blanket, and all who see her know.. there is something intensely.. strange.. about her."



Also known as the Cindermarsh Witch, the Eldritch Queen is a unique elnin indeed! A few things the owner should note about this particular elnin:
  • She was indeed stolen away by a fearsome spirit lord known as the Dire Prince- a shadowy apparition that is often depicted as a colossal raven. She spent what must have felt like centuries captive in the land of the fey, and although she will never have any concrete memories of her time there, the owner of this elnin is welcome to give her dreams about strange, or terrible, or wonderous things that may or may not have happened to her.
  • She believes she made a deal with her captor to release her, but her memories of this deal shift and are inconsistent from day to day. All she knows is that she was returned to the mortal realms several generations into the future, with very odd physical transformations and new abilities- presumably a side effect of her time in the outer realm. She suspects the Dire Prince simply grew bored with her in the end, as is the way of their kind.
  • Please see the "Notables" section below for a full list of her abilities and mutations!

[Traits] :scroll: 

[ELDRITCH QUEEN] 

Hair: v.Long [
Bullet; BlueBullet; BlueBullet; BlueBullet; Blue]
Ear fluff: Medium (Feathered) [Bullet; Blue]
Tail Size:  xx.Large [Bullet; BlueBullet; BlueBullet; BlueBullet; Blue
Tail Style: Welkin [Bullet; BlueBullet; BlueBullet; BlueBullet; Blue]
Crown:  Orbital - Tiny Crow  [Bullet; BlueBullet; BlueBullet; BlueBullet; Blue]

MP: [17]
Rank: Royal


Notables :
  • Feathered ear fluff : Rather than traditional fur at the base of her ears, Eldritch Queen sports sleek black feathers.
  • Eye of the Dire Prince : It's unclear whether her right eye is just bewitched, or if she actually possesses the eye of the Dire Prince himself, but there is tremendously potent fey magic in her gaze. Using the eye, the Eldritch Queen is able to compel lesser spiritkin to do her bidding. She is also able to make a single command to any spiritkin of middling power that they cannot refuse (after they have carried out this command they are no longer unable to refuse, but are still heavily inclined to comply to her requests). Spiritkin in general will not bother the Eldritch Queen, and only the most powerful of spirits will deny or antagonize her outright.
  • More feathers : She was at one point a completely white elnin, but over time her fur has blackened (originating from around the right eye). The dark spots on her fur are actually composed of very silky feather down. It appears to have stopped spreading.
  • Single horn - Perhaps as part of her deal to be returned to the mortal realm, the Eldritch Queen has only one horn (the left one).
  • Spiritual Magnet : Eldritch spirits are drawn to this elnin. For example, her tail is endlessly full of ember wisps (they have made a nest of it). Mostly benign or benevolent spirits linger in her presence, and she often utilizes the unique abilities of these spirits to aid people suffering for maladies or curses (whether she does this out of kindness or for monetary gain is up to the owner).
  • Wings : Royal elnins possess enough innate mana to levitate themselves a few feet off the ground, but most have phasmic wings that function the same as their phasmic horns. That is to say, the wings can be hidden or shown at will, and serve no practical purpose besides vanity. Eldritch Queen can manifest raven wings.
  • Royal Pomu : Royal elnins have very special pomus. They are larger, more uniquely shaped, are several times smarter than the average pomu, and are capable of perfect speech.

Okay, this is legit the most expensive bid I've ever seen in my one and a bit years around the adopt community. A MASSIVE CONGRATS!!! 

The queens gorgeous, everything's been edited and changed and thought out so well and it fits so so well. I can appreciate wanting to be faster but when all the super hard work has such a large payoff (in both how amazing the design is and the bids) it's totally worth it! My favourite part is the black scorches and the tail cradling all them wisps. what a dream <3
