Quest NPC

"I don't care much for politics. Too much talk and not enough action."

An eccentric woman of the Midlander clan, Matoya's age is unknown, and woe betide any who ask. Though her obstinacy is the stuff of legend—as many who meet her well know—she is nonetheless a prominent and brilliant Archon, and is marked as such by a tattoo on her left cheek. She is also in possession of an ancient Crystal of Light known as the Crystal Eye, a relic that allows one to peer deeply into the aether.Matoya has long studied the world from the perspective of aether, and her pupil, Y'shtola, continues on in the spirit of this research. Matoya will neither depend upon nor curry favor with anyone, as she firmly believes one must see the world as it is to understand its mysteries. She does have her pride, however, and this sometimes leads her to give harsh tongue-lashings to her pupils. Indeed, the day she begins to remember her students fondly will be the day that her work ends.Matoya also has an interest in herbal infusions, and drinks copious amounts of the stuff—sometimes upwards of seven cups a day.
