Artwork Description

The evil Peryton creature, with the shredded cloth remains of one of his victims. The Peryton is a creature that is half-deer and half-bird. Perytons do not cast their own shadows, but the shadows of humans. Because of this, they are thought to be the spirits of travelers who have died far away from their homes, and therefor their gods. It is said that these creatures are the mortal enemies of men, and that they are responsible for the fall of Rome.
