Sarnothi have a saying for when someone passes away unexpectedly or otherwise “before their time”: they are said to have “repaid the debt of the eels”.

For Springfield, IL readers, I am going to be showing a couple illustrations at Springfield Renaissance III tomorrow night. The event is at Donnie’s Homespun inside Vinegar Hill Mall from 8:00-11:30 pm. Should be a fun time!
Back when I teased an early drawing of "The Maiden and the Eel Spirit" I had not yet worked out the Eel Spirit's proper name. Which is why it wasn't mentioned back then. XD
