About Aspidystra

Aspidystra Fennland came to Alchemy Arts shortly after the investigation into and destruction of Innsmouth, Massachusetts … for which she was not responsible. If asked about Elder Gods or other alleged former residents of that unfortunate town, her response will be a cross expression and a rude gesture. She currently functions as Social Media Creature, Compiler of Rituals, and Agent of Chaos. If you know her well enough to be granted the privilege – which she doubts – you may call her Asp. Offerings of chocolate and shiny trinkets are accepted, but will not necessarily result in a positive outcome. Her interests include explosives and exotic marine life.
