An enchanted eagle once soared the skies. It had been given the ability to live forever, yet it chose to spend its days as any other eagle would.
There was once a rodent, no one quite remembers what type it was, and it held within it great magic. Its magic could hide it from any predators, altering perception and bending reality. But one day, the great eagle descended from the sky, intent on eating the small creature while it rested unawares.
"Mercy!" cried the rodent, "For I am more than what I seem!"
"No mercy from me," replied the eagle, "For I too, am more than what you see."
But as the eagle's talons extended to take apart the rodent's body, the rodent's magic began to interact with the eagles own.
"What nonsense is this!?" screeched the eagle.
"With my magic to hide, and your magic to preserve, there can be only one fate for you now," replied the rodent.
Before the eagle was able to consume the rodent, its great feathered body was hardened into stone. No one knows what happened to the rodent, but the statue of the great eagle still stands in the center square. Some say, that one day, because of its immortal magic, it might come back alive.
