Simangele, the mad wanderer
Simangele (a.k.a. The mad wanderer, The trickster spirit, The shooting star, The fatebender)
Simangele is often represented as an incredibly beautifull woman with faery features. Her skin is tanned by days under the bright sun, higlighting her bright clear eyes, a pale sky blue for the left one and a soft jade green for the right one. Several layers of brigthly colored clothing maintained by brown leather bags and belts give her a recognizable traveling outfit, completed by a hood failing to cover her long red-earth colored hair. Her fine unclothed arms and legs are filled with silk bands and other pieces of jewelry and bells creating a smooth enthralling music along each of her steps. She always goes barefooted, leaving no footstep or any trace of her passing behind.
In the beastmen version of the cult, she is a small faery, with insect like features like dragonfly wings or a pair of antenna on her forehead. Much like Fanyana, she is a metamorph and have been seen in a number of forms. She does prefer her small appearance as it becomes even more difficult to see her coming and going.
