Mary Poppins

June 20th, 2009

seal_poppinsPerhaps the most powerful and mysterious umbralite in history, she simply breezed in one day and assumed leadership of the League. She bested the dire parrot Phooter and imprisoned his soul within her umbrella, bringing the psittacines back into their old alliances. She addressed the deteriorating power of governesses by instituting the Order of the Nannies to combat the spread of demon children. Her list of exploits, both confirmed and rumored, is truly vast.

Her origins are the source of endless contention and debate within scholarly circles, with varying degrees of productiveness. The notion that she is, in fact, the Sixth Istar returned in another form, was met with much discussion, but quickly deteriorated into a five-month long argument over whether or not Lobelia could actually do that.

A detailed analysis of her powers and abilities has lead to the tentatively accepted theory that she was a duel apprentice; the product of an alliance between Lobelia Sackville-Baggins and John Uskglass, sent to take leadership of the League in the Istar’s place and safeguard England.

    Her seal is appropriately epic.

    Yes, I was rather pleased with how it turned out; there was a great deal of pressure to get good results on this particular seal, as you might imagine.
