The Half-Turned (The Anticyclone, The Cycle-of-Seasons, The Impatient Act) is the eleventh Hour of the Second Fansus, represented by Death. It's reveal was during The Partisan's siege, but its Names were reported to have revealed themselves at earlier dates, making the hour's birth heavily disputed. Some claim it to be a cousin of The Storm-Tossed and The Knife's Edge; that it was born when The Goldsmith's corpse and The Bright Tapestry's lingering might mingled with the bed of the Sea-Of-Mists. Others say it was born when the early casualties of the invasion were swept into the sea, or from the disposal of the unworthy or unwanted in the Mist. Some even claim it to be a lost God-From-Stone, or the . It waits watching beneath the waves, watching the storm with interest and impatience. Its aspects are Winter, Forge, and Moth. It rules over the escalation of conflicts and their abrupt conclusions. It ends the journey to usher in the next.

Description

History

Appearance

Usually depicted as an old wild turkey with massive wings emerging from a vast gray sea. Sometimes depicted with a circus or theater rising alongside it.

Principles

The Half-Turned is an hour of Forge and Winter, clearing away the old to make way for the new. The old, in this case, refers to the conflicts that have refused to progress, or have failed to amuse it. Its endings are catastrophic. They can be avoided only by appealing to the Moth that heralds its arrival, the wind of its wings raising the stakes, by progressing the conflict at hand.

It is the Hour of restlessness and the changing of stories. It is a patron of actors, but an unpredictable power for all orders and movements. No story can stay fresh forever. No establishment, or movement, can stay in its favor forever. When unrest persist but fail to usurp, who the Half-Turned favors rests solely in who entertains it best, and even then it will tire of both eventually. Where The Storm-Tossed lingers, the sound of its wings can be heard. Where its gales near their peak, The Knife's-Edge soars. Round and Round and Round they fly.

Names

Jev, the Opening-Act

Jev serves as the herald of the Impatient Act—the bringer of its will. A colorful jester, donning a chromatic jingling cap and a smiling mask. He arrives instrument in hand, whatever it may be. His music opens the world to the wings of his master.
Though not a sign of doom, his arrival is a warning of one that may soon come.

When uninvited, he is a threat.

none shall be delayed."

Septa, The Pre-Finale

Where Jev heralds Half-Turn's boredom, Septa is its Harbinger. She is a colorless jester. Blacks deep as the sockets of the Ox, Whites blinding as the Glory. Her spear and gaze move to ensure that the will of her maker may not be denied.
Her presence is never to be taken lightly, for it by itself signals the Anticyclone's direct action.

If she is seen to manifest uninvited, it is already too late.
