Spirit of Clouds that Look like Ducks
The Spirit of Clouds that Look like Ducks is one of the oldest Spirit Nobles in existence. This Noble was born a human called Orlu. Orlu was born and came of age before The Golden Age. He was an uneducated fool and prone to wandering. He tried living as a farmer, but grew frustrated after a few hours and left the field. The only thing that could hold his attention was lying on a grassy hill by the sea and looking up at the clouds.
Without the attention and focus necessary to work, Orlu had no way of obtaining food. He could not grow it, nor could he beg for it. He never learned how to find it in nature, and he had no friends to give it to him. One day he sat on the hill looking at the clouds when a flock of ducks flew overhead. He mused “Ducks and clouds… both so far away, and I am unable to eat either. If I were spirit and not human, I would never have to eat again.” As he watched, the cloud seemed to take shift to take a shape resembling one of the ducks that had just flown overhead. “The spirits mock my hunger! A spirit of anything, even a spirit of clouds that look like ducks, would deserve respect!”
The spirits have never revealed if it was destiny, willpower, desperation, or a practical joke, but from that day forth, the spirits recognized Orlu as the Spirit of Clouds that Look like Ducks. While the bodies of other Spirit Nobles have died, and their domains inherited by others, Orlu remains as the Spirit of Clouds that Look like Ducks.
