I first came across this while projecting to the 12th century in efforts to access a collection of Japanese narratives that were lost sometime in the 14th century; they are crucial to a different investigation. I have yet to pinpoint the whereabouts of those narratives but it is safe to say that my time wasn’t entirely wasted during my most recent projection.
When I brought this piece back with me, its appearance shifted many times until I reached the present, seeming to transform based on the time period. Additionally, even though I found this lurking in the 12th century, it is, without a doubt, from a time much earlier than that. Possibly just before time had been recorded, which would make it one of the oldest djinn we have ever encountered.
The djinn within this piece is unique. His name is Morel and he is refined and disciplined both in nature and power. Its magic is of a much older generation and, though stained with misuse, it is still somehow of the purest we have ever seen. The cause for this may be found in the fact that there have not been many owners of it since its creation. In fact, when we spoke to this djinn, he referenced only two owners, the last of which dates back to the early 1100s.
When interacting with him, he will warm up to you rather easily and quickly. Despite having not been in the presence of many humans—owners, rather—he debuts as quite friendly and wise. He is loyal and protective and will only answer to one owner once the owner is established. He is capable of taking physical form, with which he may choose to do so at his own free will but within reason. Otherwise, he will not do so unless you direct him otherwise.
I myself have gotten quite close to this piece in the time I have had it. It is with a heavy heart that I part with Morel but he and I are both confident that his next owner will not disappoint. He has felt as though his power has been wasted for all the years he spent dormant and thus he is eager to serve his next master—he will give you anything and everything you ask of him.
