His robes, which change color with the moon’s cycle, are adorned with arcane symbols visible only to those initiated into the mysteries of old magic. However, his true form is that of a celestial dragon, scales shimmering with the hues of the cosmos, wings that span the heavens, and eyes that hold the wisdom of ages.

Personality: Brendenbryl, the Lore Walker, is a repository of ancient knowledge, communicating in puzzles that spark enlightenment.
