Hello, Neopian! I am the greatly esteemed Darigan Pteri, Raggle Fraggle, that lives around these parts! I have lived in Shenkuu with Mystica for a little over two Neopian years, and they've been interesting, as far as I can tell!
As a small Yellow Pteri Chick that was originally born in Tyrannia, I had decided that once I just came to the fledgling age, I would try to fly and explore as many distant lands as I could. Everything had gone swimmingly. Have you ever made a trip to Meridell in the spring-time? The worms are especially juicy and sweet that time of year! The Meri-Acres Farmer didn't seem to mind either; worms and dung are a pretty nasty combination to have with your crops.
Anyways, after a quick stop in Tyrannia, I continued west over a strangely shrouded island, and finally hit the shores of Shenkuu. Exhausted after the long and trying flight, I decided to roost along its shores until I was able to get enough rest so I would have the energy to fly up the rocky peaks. I wasn't certain, but I had heard rumors of a chef named Bonju who had a legendary pot that was able to make your wildest culinary dreams come true! "First thing tomorrow…." were my last thoughts before I drifted off into slumber.
In a seemingly short amount of time, I saw a bright light on the outside my closed eyelids. Slowly opening and rubbing my eyes, I saw a mysterious cloaked someone kneeling over, watching me. Startled, I squawked a bit, and took a tumble off of the rock I was just sitting on. The cloaked figure then chuckled. "No need to be startled, young one!"
He pulled back his hood. A wizened head of a Tyrannian Eyrie appeared. I couldn't quite see his face, though; his face was shrouded by a large tuft of feathers from his head.
"You seem adventurous enough," the Eyrie mused. "Would you be interested in some excitement?"
Before I really had the chance to answer, I began to feel an odd, tingly sensation. Suddenly, I had huge talons, and a large, dark mane sprouted around my chest. I looked in a nearby pool of water, and noticed my eyes were an intense red, with large bushy eyebrows.
I turned around in a panic to say to ask some questions of the Eyrie, but he had already vanished as suddenly as he had come. Instead, there was a small dragon-like critter with scales and eyes colored not unlike my own.
"I suppose it's just you and me, buddy."
I moved in to pick him up, but he promptly bit my wing. Scowling, I swiftly scooped him up, and held him away from my face to prevent damage. I sighed, looking at the distance. Trying to get used to my new body shape, I scuffled to the gravelly path that led up to the distant city of Shenkuu. Looks like this was going to be a nice long walk…
So, that's how it is now. I lurk the shadows of Shenkuu with Tensai the Ukali by my side on its highest roof-tops, watching all that goes on in the city, with nothing escaping my sweeping gaze. If a conflict should by chance show itself, I simply alert all those around me. I rarely join the fray myself. Now excuse me, I need to take my mid-afternoon nap; I need to be awake when the fun starts!
