Purple Pilgrim

Physical Description

Special abilities

Since reaching enlightenment, the Purple Pilgrim has never left the Purple Oasis. It's possble that he survives on scavenged Blue Darts—like other desert explorers—or even the magical plant life of the Oasis itself.

Followers of Nachi believe him to have divine significance, and that he simply sustains himself on the magical energy from channeling two opposing Spheres. As no-one else has ever achieved this feat, it's impossible to say for certain.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

Before becoming the "Purple Pilgrim", he was a Severed Monoduga who set out to traverse the Frozen Desert.

He was inspired by the intense duality of the location and wanted to be able to become a Conduit for two opposing Spheres, something that no-one had acheived before or since.

No-one knows exactly what happened, and the Pilgrim hasn't shared his story; the next time someone found their way to the Purple Oasis, they found him happily living there, having become a Sphere Bridge and gained the ability to channel two Spheres at once.

Heresy (click to reveal)

Detractors of the faith claim that the Purple Pilgrim is no longer that monoduga at all, but a Shade or some other creature from one of the Spheres, hence his unwillingness to leave the Oasis.

Hi there! You may not know me, but I am the sponsor of the Great Leader of Their People Summer Camp Prompt this year! Since you wrote this article, I would like to know, would you mind me reading it aloud on my Twitch channel this week? I have a lot to get through so it helps to do it live while people watch. I've scheduled to go live at 8am and 8pm Eastern Time every weekday. If you join and comment, I can go over your article right then and there! If you'd like to coordinate a specific date, let me know. If you aren't able to make it (or don't want to be present live), you can also always watch streams after the fact on my YouTube channel   BUT, if the answer is NO because you'd rather I not, it's okay! Not agreeing to be streamed definitely does not put you at any disadvantage for winning in my eyes. Please respond swiftly by replying here (make sure to click REPLY under my comment or I won't be notified), message me on my World Anvil profile page, Discord, or anywhere else you find me online.   Thanks again! Whatever you choose, God bless and much success! <3
