The Weaver

We are surrounded by threads of life-force connecting each and every one of us.  Manipulating those strands is the purview of the Weavers, an ancient race of creatures much sought after as familiars and servants.  At considerable personal risk Alice Tochylovska was able to capture this specimen.

A tank.  With cannons.

These people are gloriously insane.
