The pied piper

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This female version of the pied piper is actually a study for a character in an upcoming story. This character, named Era, is a travelling artist. She and her storytelling husband Drystan both unknowingly use a particular type of magic in their music and storytelling. As a consequence they are probably the best flutist and storyteller that ever walked the earth. The magic imbued in their music and stories often gets people to do remarkable things, just like the music of the pied piper in the fairytale. Meanwhile this talented couple finds the time to raise their two boys, Fechin and Faolan, as well as their two foster children, god-and-goddess-to-be Myron and Morana.
