Arariax, born 3237.170 UGT, was one of Ghyll's most influential poets. Poeting in close to every style, on the subject of close to anything, his notebooks reveal an evident truth close to everyone who reads it. Rumor has it he was so good at poetry, that even the way he talked, and even his shopping list are all works of art prized by literary scholars.

One box of Soap, to cleanse myself.
Some tomes of Old, to rear myself.
3 sacks of Beans, to fill myself.
And some Rear Paper, to cleanse myself again.

Another one of his poems, "The Deathbug", retells a story about his encounter with a deathbug in a style that has been copied ruthlessly since it was first penned.

I went to a picnic with sister
Then that bug did come here to pester.
The bug then did sting,
'Twas the darndest thing,
I don't think she can get more deader.

While in exile, the style of the poetry there seemed to greatly influence his last publication, "Why the Free Bird loves Tallow". His peculiar habit of releasing 64 poems at a time, combined with the fact that the regional style was unusually terse, made this less of a book and more like a large pamphlet. He speaks of his birthplace, the Evesque Valley, and it's role in archeology.

Home of adventure.
Brave souls venture into lands
of great loneliness

Citations: Deathbug, Evesque Valley.
