Quest Location: Satiren
Quests Given From: Trinni
Requirements: Level 25
Trinni: Shortly after I first arrived here, I discovered a strange pattern in how the sea creatures migrated around this area of the ocean. All of the creatures seemed to avoid moving during a certain time each month.
Trinni: I soon found that ALL creatures followed this pattern except for ONE: I call them Enchanter Fish. They are beautiful creatures... they appear very peaceful and look much less dangerous than many other things in the sea.
Trinni: I tried to capture one of them, but it was very quick and escaped. I still have a scar where one of its fins sliced me. Not long after that, I began having very weird dreams, extremely realistic visions of living under the ocean.
Trinni: These dreams seem to occur at the same time of the month that the other sea creatures' movement pattern alters. I am beginning to suspect the the Enchanter Fish may have been carrying some kind of pathogen that made me sick in some way...
Trinni: ...but I need to catch one to study it. I am expecting to have another dream tonight, which coincides with the appearances of Enchanter Fish.
Trinni: Can you go catch one of the Enchanter Fish tonight and bring it to me? While you do that, I'll record my dream and once I wake, I'll be best prepared to study the specimen.
Find the Fish!
Trinni: Okay, «You», it's time. Thanks again for agreeing to help me!
«You»: Don't worry-- We'll find out what's going on. I'll be back soon with one of those Enchanter Fish, I promise!
Trinni: And I'm off to sleep. Hopefully this dream will offer some more clues.
«You»: Good luck to both of us, then.
You take a sub to the bottom of Satiren's ocean and step outside
«You»: Wow-- Trinni wasn't kidding. It looks like ALL the living things that could move have abandoned the entire local area!
«You»: I'll take a look at my motion sensor to see what might be out of my range of vision down here...
A few red dots enter the readout, moving towards you, followed by a swarm of red dots with a blue dot in the middle.
«You»: THAT'S where all the sea creatures are!! And it looks like something is controlling them-- and sending them MY WAY!!
«You»: I've made it through to the center of the mass of creatures! Now let's see just what has been controlling them...
An Enchanter Fish enters
«You»: You must be one of those Enchanter Fish! Well, you are definitely a beautiful fish...
Finnona:: I am Finnona, one of the Gravanir of Satiren. Since the beginning of known time have we circled the vast sea, in tune with our motion around the great Surface Gleam.
«You»: Well, that's nice... but I noticed that you seemed to be controlling those other sea creature's movements. Did you make them attack me?
Finnona:: I did not, though I do control their movements. They were merely protecting me, once they sensed that you we somehow different.
«You»: I need you to come with me, to the surface. My friend fears she has caught some kind of sickness from one of your kind, and needs to study one of you.
Finnona:: I cannot allow that. I cannot leave my territory. If I do, the order of things that we have preserved for so long will be undone.
«You»: Maybe nature could use a little chaos. Maybe Satiren's natural order would work just fine without your kind forcing it into a cycle of your own devising. How do you know?
Finnona:: It is not for me to decide. I can only do what has been done for all time. And so, I cannot allow you to take me.
«You»: I'm sorry, but I have to try, for my friend.
Upon defeat, Finnona transforms into Trinni
«You»: !!!!!!! Trinni!
Trinni straightens up
Trinni: I-- I--- wow!
«You»: YOU were Finnona... ARE Finnona!
Trinni: You must have released the Gravanir's hold on me. This isn't over, though... I'll change again. I need to figure out how to prevent it, or at least control it.
«You»: I'll be there to help if you need it. It sounds like having such a power could be very useful for you, as long as you find a way to be the personality in control of the body.
Trinni: Definitely. I have my work cut out for me. How about we head back to the surface? Suddenly, I REALLY miss breathing air...
Summon Finnona I
Summon Finnona II-Z
Summon Finnona III-WG
Summon Finnona IV
Summon Finnona V
Nice fishing! It was a shocking discovery for us both, I'm sure. The original Enchanter Fish that I encountered passed on some kind of DNA-altering viris that turned me into a -- for lack of a better word -- were-fish!
From what I can tell, the rest of the Gravanir are NOT were-fish, but I can never be sure until we can find another one. My guess is that during the Gravanir's evolution on Satiren, their own DNA and the DNA of this virus mixed together. When the virus encountered ME, a life form from another world, it changed me. I plan on using my ability to become a fish to help in my explorations!
