A tattered Fae had fluttered up to your direction, stopping himself right in front of you. He smelled of rot and decay, his vein-covered wings beating the scent around him and sending dried blood falling to the ground in small flakes. His metallic hide shifted beneath his bloodied bandages, rattling the bones tied around his waist. Deep red eyes gazed upon you beneath his skull, burrowing down into your very core with an uneasiness that couldn't be shaken off.

"So, you wish to learn more about the Cult of Anguish? Very well. Learn from what you see, hear, and experience. But, tread carefully, stranger. We'd hate to see you as the Maiden's main course. Ha, ha..."

She had fed on her prisoners, both physically and mentally, until her body had been rejuvenated to its prime condition. Failing to contain the Maiden, Andariel overthrew the previous Order and took over their lands as her own. She is a vicious monstrosity of a dragon. She takes pleasure upon the emotional pain of others.[/size][/columns] [columns][url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=37078073][img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/portraits/370781/37078073p.png[/img] [nextcol] [font=Times New Roman][size=5]Anstix[/size] [size=4]Devoted Apothecary[/size] [size=4]Anstix had been just a small pup when he had first discovered Andariel, sleeping within her massive ribcage. He later discovered that she had still been "alive", in awe of such an immense entity. Devoted to his cause, he gathered up dragons far and wide across the Scarred Wastelands in order to help him with his cause. He now is delighted to see that his goal has been met, seeing the Maiden restored back to her true self. He is both smart and cowardly. He shrinks away at any signs of Andariel's "playful" behavior or rage, submitting to her as he tries his best to avoid her consequences. He sells his own concoction of poisons, which are created straight from himself.[/size][/columns] [columns][url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=37233793][img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/portraits/372338/37233793p.png[/img] [nextcol] [font=Times New Roman][size=5]Gore[/size] [size=4]First Head of the Cerberus Watchbog[/size] [size=4]Gore was the first to cry when he and his siblings had broken out of his shell.

She struggled amongst her "brothers" to control their body, limbs flailing about as she struggled to move within Andariel's grasp.

37008449p.png Andariel
The Maiden of Anguish - Matriarch

The absolute Matriarch of the Cult. Discovered by Anstix as nothing more than a skeleton,

She is a vicious monstrosity of a dragon. She takes pleasure upon the emotional pain of others.

He now is delighted to see that his goal has been met, seeing the Maiden restored back to her true self.
