The Thorned Courier is a mischievous Hour. He ferries messages from Hour to Hour, but always makes sure that the messages are delivered as insults, or is intentionally misleading as to what the messages mean. This leads to disastrous miscommunications, and the Thorned Courier delights in using the resulting chaos to sneak behind the backs of other Hours, usually in order to steal whatever catches his eye at the time. The Thorned Courier knows the every hidden path, and every secret passage. He uses these paths to travel quickly, and escape those that he has angered. The Thorned Courier has a habit of getting into places that he shouldn't, and some say that sometimes, he takes short-cuts through the histories during his travels.

Description

History

The Thorned Courier was first a Name created by the Spirarch in order to carry messages between her and the Worm Unending. But upon being visited by the Harlequin, the Spirarch was inspired. She transformed the Thorned Courier into something more. Something with the knowledge and power to travel anywhere, and carry messages for anyone. But the Spirarch imbued the Thorned Courier with the tiniest seed of malice, allowing for the Courier's sense of humour and mischief.

Appearance

The Thorned Courier takes the form of a large red squirrel, approximately the size of a young cat.

Principles

The Thorned Courier wields Knock, that he may travel anywhere, past any obstacles. He cannot be denied entry. He also wields Moth, for his sense of mischief and the chaos he causes.

Locations

The Mansus

Hidden Nests

The Thorned Courier has hidden nests in many places that even most Hours cannot reach. Up among the higher reaches of the Spirarch's branches, secreted into a hidden corner of the Worm Foundations, behind an ancient ruin, and other places. The Thorned Courier hides his favourite stolen treasures in these places.
