PERSEUS Steals The Eye From the Graeae by Peter Connolly. "The Graeae (Old Women) were the sisters of the Gorgons, & were blind & toothless, apart from a single eye & a single tooth which they shared among them. Perseus needed information from them for his quest to fetch the head of the Gorgon Medusa, so Perseus stole from them their single eye & tooth forcing them to tell him." - J. R. March's Dictionary of Classical Mythology/user: Aethon

NPC:  Fading - a Stalker. Enkidu's "mentor".  He has been a scout for the Lodge for years, but he doesn't speak nor has he really shown Enkidu the ropes.  He just let Enkidu move in to the cabin that he kept at the edge of the clearing a few years ago.  Nowadays, Enkidu makes sure he has a fire going and food available for Fading when he returns.  It's occurred to Enkidu recently that maybe 'Fading' is not so much the scout's name as a description.
