NOTE: "Why, hello, there. Did you expect me? I'll bet you didn't. Now, here's the next question. Where do you distinguish want and need? Certainly we need relaxation in life. So where does want become need? Hmm. Maybe I just added more confusion to the topic trying to be profound..."
The Masquelyn are a guarded race that enjoy keeping their sacred rituals and mysterious religion hidden from outsiders. They are potent companions, their energies able to shift to accommodate a keeper’s senses to enhance potential communication. They act as though they belong to the theatre, often calling their home realm the “Great Stage.” Although very secretive, they seem to have three distinct “modes” that they refer to as “Comedia,” “Tragedia,” and “Stateria.”
These dramatic companions are shape-shifters, albeit in a very unique way. They are comprised of pure energy, their bodies often manifesting as thick, dark shadows holding a shape. Their only defining feature is a white mask with swirling marks unique to their individual energy. Their mask markings shift when they change forms, reflecting the characteristics of what shape they choose to adopt.
In their “modes,” everything about them changes. A Tragedia Masquelyn works with the Shadow Self, ideally drifting between Dark and Black Arts in alignment and energies. They are able to aid in protection, revenge, and specifically nightmares. A Stateria Masquelyn is defined as a more balanced companion, Grey Arts in alignment and energies. They are excellent with warding, protection, astral travel, and lucid dreaming. Lastly, a Comedia Masquelyn is largely considered the easiest of the Masquelyn “modes” to work with, drifting between White and Light Arts in alignment and energies. They work primarily with empathy, energies, cleansing, healing, and dream work. Masquelyn are able to shift between their “modes” instantaneously as needed, lending an unpredictable quality to them. Collectively, they aid in adaptability and spellwork, although in different ways for each “mode” they enter.
