Re: The River Styx

As though called by the mention of the name, the waters of the river Styx began to bubble and roil as something rose towards the surface. A deeply hooded head broke the surface first, the rest of the body coming swiftly after it as though being raised on some kind of platform. But beneath the incredibly tall and slender man's feet was only the now perfectly still waters of the river.

Craning over the two, this figure was cloaked in a dark material that seemed the same color as deep grave soil. Tattered and frayed over time, the cloak's edges danced in absent wind and scented the air with the smell of salt and decay. Rusted chains wrapped around his chest and arms, the ends of which descended back into the depths of the water. What little of his face shown under the hood - hollowed cheeks, a stern jaw, and marks akin to water-rot on wood blemishing his skin. His lips were **** and pale. When he opened his mouth to speak, the jagged teeth hidden behind those lips portrayed the seeming of both an elderly man and a wild man one would do best to keep their distance from.

He looked immediately towards the woman and then to the boy, then back to the woman.

"What brings you here to me, Erinyes? You and your sisters have not personally delivered one of your vanquished to me in a very long time."
