Quoth the Pitsen:

“Please, go away. There is nothing for you here. It is only cold rocks and dry grass, but it is mine and I do not want you here.”

Kith Excerpt:

The shyest of the Jijig Süns (Changelings), the Lagyeri (Kith) of Pitsen are shapeshifting giants of the wilderness with little love for chaos. They are famous in many areas, ranging from Siberia to Turkey despite their shyness, and many Fae families across Eurasia speak highly of them. The secretive Pitsen themselves say very little.

Happy to live their lives in peaceful solitude, the Pitsen do serve as stewards of the wilderness in a way that few of the other Lagyeri comprehend. From the dryness of the Gobi into the cold mountains, there are numerous wellsprings of magic that too many greedy souls would hope to hoard for themselves. The Pitsen tirelessly work in the quiet to ensure that such magic founts flow freely.

Luckily, the Pitsen’s ability to change into animals allows them a modicum of stealth. Many would-be magicians who seek to plunder a seemingly abandoned magic-spring overlook the large shaggy mountian goat over there. That magician rarely makes the mistake twice.



“People dread silence because it is transparent; like clear water, which reveals every obstacle—the used, the dead, the drowned, silence reveals the cast-off words and thoughts dropped in to obscure its clear stream. And when people stare too close to silence they sometimes face their own reflections, their magnified shadows in the depths, and that frightens them.”
― Janet Frame, “Scented Gardens for the Blind”
