nother character sketch. woo hoo!
Black Jenny is the name given to a particularly twisted phantom that haunts the byways and disused roads of the wastelands. It's said that she was once a strange princess of some forgotten and long-dead kingdom, and that she was two halves of light and shadow that devoured one another to mirror the rise and fall of the sun. Somewhere along the line, the skies blackened, the sun didn't rise, and the dark half of the princess ate up the other half.
In any event, Black Jenny has become the patron deity of dead highways and forgotten paths. If a traveler becomes lost or seeks someone or something that can't be found, Jenny knows the way and knows where you can find them, but the cost is prohibitive, assuming you even make it to the bargaining stage. Popular wisdom holds that enough lanterns and a strong will can arrest Jenny's attention long enough for you to get a few words in.
this character is, oddly enough, in the same story vein as Mani [link]
. May they never meet
