When the Lavendars sought to settle on new lands, they were warned that the surrounding moors were haunted by strange creatures.

Genre: Horror, Mystery


Nisha knew what was in the basket though she could no longer see it and could barely hear it. The “allfeistus” they were called once. Strange creatures who were thought to have died out until someone rediscovered them. Uncle Nestor said they might still die out. And that’s why people like him were trying to capture them. Not just to study them. But also to try and preserve them.

Perhaps even try to teach them.

“Be mindful, niece. The gift is not the creature. The gift is his future friendship…a thing, I admit, neither you nor I can predict.”

Episode Art Description: Digitally colored ink drawing.  At left, a girl with a bow in her hair, seen from waist up and her right profile. Her right arm is bent, hand perched on the edge of a basket that sits at center. A small scaly tail curves over the edge inches from the girl’s hand. A scaly arm reaches up from a bundle of blankets. The hand is reaching toward the girl’s left hand, which is stretched over the basket, holding a cricket.  A watermark of the word “Storyfeather” lies over the image.
