What is this? Who is speaking to me?

Updated: Nov 20


“Allow your eyes to be open.”


My eyelids lift in perfect clarity to reflect every shade and color of the colossal cephalopod before me. I swear that he is wearing a tattered robe of some forgotten dynasty. His body strikes me as well... Does his octopus form include a set of humanoid legs and torso?


The cephalopod faces me with an expression I would otherwise ascribe to an owl or an eagle. His colors and textures would invite gem collectors to mistakenly pick at the facets of alluring treasure adorning his skin.


“You are in my chambers and I am called Octavian. We presently reside in the Giant of the Deep.”
