Pet Name: shalli_
Deep within the darkest depths of the Haunted Woods is a creepy old wooden hut. Periodically passersby have noticed flashes of pink light emanating from the cracks between the planks, but none dare to get too close. Inside this hut lives an old sorceress with long flowing purple hair. Residents of the Haunted Woods say she can talk to spirits and some even go as far as to say that she can raise the dead. Mothers warn their children never to get too close to the hut for fear of the wrath of this old spell caster. By now you're wondering who this mysterious being is. This elderly witch is known by the name Shalli_.
No one exactly knows how old Shalli_ is. Neopian historians document her presence on the day of the earthquake in the Ice Caves. Some might call this a coincidence; others might call it “involvement”. Picture have surfaced of her being present during the battle against the Monoceraptor; however, no one is quite sure which side she was rooting for.
Interviews with Mipsy, her apprentice and only living relative, have revealed that Shalli_ has a hair triggered temper. Mipsy claimed that once, Shalli_ even went as far as turning a Prince into a Mortog for questioning her age.
Many wonder about the “_” at the end of Shalli_’s name. According to Finneus at the Altadorian Archives, it is all that remains of an ancient letter that has since been lost with the passage of time. The only documentation of this letter was in a book that was being used to hold up a table in the archives. Unfortunately, the only page with information regarding this alphabetical relic has been stained with a strawberry flavoured goo and has been left illegible.
Shalli_’s magical abilities are surpassed by no other. Many Neopians even wonder if Fyora herself could defeat Shalli_ if the time came where it became necessary. For now, though, we all hope that that time will never arrive. Shalli_’s collection of magical spell books rivals that of Kauvara’s collection. Shalli_ is never seen publicly without a book in hand. In particular, she is quite fond of a green, tattered tome. There are strange inscriptions on the outside, but no one has ever gotten a good enough look at it, in fear of making eye contact with her.
Some Neopians have begun to question Shalli_’s sanity. In the recent months singing has been heard echoing from Shalli_’s shack. It has become especially prominent during nights of the full moon. Many have become wary of traveling in the area on these nights, for fear of being attacked. There has yet to be a report of an attack, but then again, when someone goes missing who is left to report it?
Hopefully you have learned to use caution when traveling through the Haunted Woods. Just remember, should you see pink light, turn around and start running or that beautiful luminescence might be the last thing you lay your eyes upon.
