A derelict woman who dreamed of flying, accompanied by a myriad of corvid-like beings. Long ago, during one of many conflicts in Lapis, Malphasie's clifftop village and the surrounding area were ravaged by marauders.

In return for feeding her companions during their journey, the crows provided Malphasie with sparkling trinkets, some of which unbeknownst to her were rare talismans meant to protect her from further harm. However, as time marched forward, whatever food she had saved began to dwindle. Preferring hunger over loneliness, she gave them what was left of her food, until she wasted away from starvation.
A derelict woman who dreamed of flying, accompanied by a myriad of corvid-like beings. Rumor has it that as Malphasie neared her death her beloved crows granted her final wish of flight, for in the skies she lived on within them, after they partook of her decaying corpse. Was the profound love for her feathered friends the emotion that drove her to materialize anew in the form of a vision? Or was it the rancor of her murder of crows that drew forth her sorrowful essence?
