The two won't have to wait long before someone... or something... appears. It's a bird. Hard to tell what kind of bird, exactly. It looks like a crow, but from another angle it's almost like a magpie instead. Or maybe an owl? Its form is pitch-black at the centre and greying around the edges, constantly blurring and shifting. The one constant element of this creature are its eyes. Large and bright yellow, with very large brown irises and pitch-black pupils.
"Ilpholin and Damon," it says, in a deep, reverberating voice that doesn't sound right coming from it. "I am to be your guide on the King's mission. You can call me... hmm. The Eye of the Bird."
