The Golden Wastes
Legend Lore on the Clay Tablet of Orthryx
One of Five whose appearance are a harbinger of the Conqueror Worm. Its power do the Five contain in clay, a fragile thing to hold the destiny of the world. The name of the Two Headed Jackal is Orthyrx, and in his jaws are the marrow and blood of a dead world. Woe to those who behold the beast. Its feasts are a grim repast. The Worm is its father yet there is no mother to give it birth. It lies in its womb, waiting for the Sign. The Fiery One warded it, but its flames sing no more. Lost in time until the Mother of Worms sent a Forsaken man to find it and its brothers. He failed yet others do seek the same. Its appearance foretold a King of Beasts, and his children are the spawn of the unbegotten. Grandchildren to a thing not yet born.
