This story features Sir Peleas as he searches for a water demon or sprite that chased off the Covenant’s grogs from a pool. The pool was a site for finding muto vis, in the form of small pieces of furniture and furnishings. Peleas was accompanied by the outlaw poacher Sweet Gille and Viszna, Marcus’ maid servant.
The pool was fed by a brook. A path followed the brook up into the hills. The party took the path to discover whaere the small pieces of furniture came from and where the beast that had chased off the grogs (one said he saw an otter leave the water soon after the attack).
