The Memory Flowery
Prina Via is an abundant small blue wildflower growing in and around the Smara River basin.
Prina Via is a small wildflower. It has seven petals surrounding a small pale yellow center. While the main body of the petals are deep blue, the centers are a light shade of blue that turns white at the very end. The leaves and stem of the plant are green. One of the plants' most curious features is that during the day it looks like grass, but at night the flowers will bloom and give out a bright glow that can only be seen on dark nights.
Uses, Products & Exploitation
The main use of Prina Via is in potions, powders, spells, and medicines. While witchcraft and such arts have been banned in most regions of Issendree, this herb is still harvested in abundance as such laws are not well enforced and an untrained eye cannot tell the difference between the plant's magical uses and its medicinal ones. The most well-known use of Prina Via is in memory-related spells and medications. Commonly used by members of the Issendreen Royal family to remove some of its members, this use of the plant has been banned in all parts of the country on top of the magic ban, with exceptions for medical uses, and is very strictly enforced. Despite this, the royal family has continued to make use of the many magic workers, who still work these spells. Many signs and code names have been created to keep these people a secret. Unfortunately, most of them center on the negative aspects of these spells, such as Memory Taker or Life Stealer.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
Prina Via can be found in great abundance through the Samara River basin particularly in the Drovan Plains. It has also been found in small numbers around the foothills of the Narog Mountains, where it is an invasive species. Although the battle to remove the flower from the foothills has been largely successful, it has continued to spread slowly into both Kiranin and Lubria.
Civilization and Culture
Prina Via has many names. While it is mainly known by its Droyegan name, it is also known as the memory flower and its scientific name, pleetr pa. On top of these three common names, it has many traditional names, because of how widespread the flower is.
