Pet Name: Crowiea
Located in the grim Neovia area of the Haunted Woods lay a darken, desolate manor. Nobody knows the exact year it was built, but they do know that it has been kept by the affluent Berhtram family for generations. The family was well known in the area- mainly for Lord Berhtram's successful business (which interestingly enough, became even more successful after the jinx Krawley played in the Tale of Woe that plagued Neovia). After the infamous Neovian curse broke out, the Lord and Lady of the estate disappeared without a trace; leaving their two children with their business and wealth. While their eldest, Carthspire, attends academy, the other offspring stays in the manor and never leaves it.
Crowiea, their youngest and only daughter, had always been a strange child. She always preferred the company of the many crokabeks that occupied their gardens rather than the guests her father's business would bring over. The birds enjoyed her company as well, and she even adopted her favorite out of the bunch and named him Heskel. The pair was very close and even had their own language, it seemed. Heskel could understand every word she said to him, and Crowiea could even understand his caws and chirps in return.
As she grew older, the more she kept to herself and remained secretive to even her brother. She would hide away in her room or study, writing confidential letters and having Heskel deliver them in the dark of night. Even with her secrecy, the Berhtram business still remained one of the most successful in the Haunted Woods to everyone's surprise. The townsfolk spoke of Crowiea as if she was a ghost and remained very curious of her; even the butlers and maids that lived in the manor with her were puzzled by her private nature.
Today, however, she was more reserved than usual. While it wasn't uncommon for her to remain secluded in her study for hours at a time, the maids of the estate hadn't seen her at all; not even once. It wasn't until nightfall when all of the workers slept soundly in their quarters when Crowiea finally emerged from her solitude. She walked quietly through the dark, haunted halls and into the main sitting area. She paced ardently around the room, almost as if she was in anticipation of something- or someone. She waited for a moment, and then walked silently to the large window illuminating the room.
The eerie, blue light of the moon shined through and onto her pale face as she stared longingly into the distance. She glanced at the tall, antique grandfather clock to her left side and squinted impatiently.
"Where is he.." She muttered to herself quietly and tapped her clawed fingers on the window's frame.
Suddenly, the bird cawed loudly as he flew into the room from the hall and perched onto her arm whilst grasping a small, secretive letter in his sharp beak.
"Good work, Heskel.." She grinned mischievously and gently took the envelope from her wicked companion, "The Sway will love to hear about this.."
