Ancient island folklore tells a tale of the Harbinger of Night: a mouse so dark and powerful that its very presence frightens away the sun. For generations, parents on the Floating Islands have used this old yarn to scare their children into returning home before dusk. Unlike many legends however, this story has a terrifying truth to it. The Paragon of Shadow is believed to be one of the most powerful shadow casters in existence and is a very real threat to anyone brave (or foolish) enough to travel to the high altitude islands.

Be warned, all ye who sail into the darkness, a small mouse can cast a very large shadow.

Mouse ID#: 1050
