Leviathan is an enigma, a creature from the distant
past that claims much but has little to substantiate its
claims. What it truly is may never come to be known, but
the Cu-Hurigan are loyal to it and treat it like it is
their ancestor. It has been around since before the Vaecenans
and seemed to have been involved in the Vaecenan / Cu-Hurigan
Where Leviathan came from has yet to be uncovered. It
claims that in the ancient past of Mauritanja it arrived
and slept deep beneath the waves. It claims to have created
the Cu-Hurigan, the Sea Hags and the Merfolk but that
only the Cu-Hurigan remember it.
Indeed the Cu-Hurigan treat it like it is their creator,
throwing their lives away against the blades of the Unicorns
at its every whim. They treat it like it is holy and Incant
in its name, and their incantations work extremely well
as some might tell you.
What Leviathan wants is difficult to know. It sought
that the isle of Vaecena be resunk when it had the rift
open upon it. It seems to generate some vast area of magical
water wherever it goes, that ships cannot sail over and
fish cannot breath in. The bodies it uses are magical
water, animated in some haphazard fashion and thrown at
whatever faces it without much care to their survival.
What it truly is and what it wants from Mauritanja may
wait to be a discussion for many years to come.
