Jay was most talented summoner in the academy. While his peers struggled to call on basic globs of water and floating flames, he was creating wurms and drakes from bizarre combinations of material. For him, the skill is almost automatic, his mood flooding into these strangely intelligent creatures.
Jay’s Pitchfire Lurker is a creepy little character. It comes from the black ashes and smoldering goo at the bottom of flames recently died. It sulks around angrily, then flares up into fiery anger at unexpected moments.
