Slyphe, the Maelstrom

The Changing, the Tempest, the Fabricator. Goddess of Seas. God of Change. The many titles of Slyphe over the ages serve only as the faintest introduction to the reality of the Maelstrom. With a form that can be as fluid as water and as changeable as the weather, the only true constant is Their connection to the waters of Sapience. As a staunch supporter of the cause of Light and Spirit, They abhor those who cannot change, who lack the awareness to see beyond the obvious.

They can be found anywhere water may take Them, whether it be the wild ocean, or the depths of the wilderness, and everywhere in between. Though many tenets have been linked with Them over the course of time, and mortals have conceptualized many more, all things ebb and flow, rising into greater or lesser prominence with the shifting of the years. Only the sea of change remains constant, and awareness, the island jutting upward.

As the creator of the Kelki, They regard them with some fondness, in a manner similar to the embrace of waves on the seaside - fleeting and yet always returning. The trident is Their most obvious symbol, though flowing water, the telescope, and tome bound in sharkskin each hold their own importance.

They are an Immortal, tall and regal with a distinctively Kelki form. The resemblance ends there, with a figure that shifts in height and contours constantly: from powerful and muscular, to slender and willowy, to lean and athletic at any given moment. Flesh that shades from cerulean to azure to turquoise without pause provides a mesmerising background to the deep blue tattoos spiralling across every visible stretch of skin, ending in sharp spirals and depictions of the many creatures of the sea. Their proud visage is angular and sleek, with piercing eyes of a deep sea green hue. Though Their form is ever-shifting, the wounds that mark Their body remain consistent; severe burns claiming a portion of Their face and arms, with deep gashes visible scattered across Their form, not to mention those injuries likely hidden by Their attire.
