The Mandolin of the God of Music
The archangel, Azrael, bartered with the Hiddukel for a chance to seek unrequited love. The item that the merchant requested was Branchala’s mandolin. The strings were stripped form this marvelous item and Branchala’s soul was stolen as well.
After Azrael recognized the effects of his folly, he turned to the adventurers to reclaim these eight strings. Although it took almost two hundred years and two parties of heroes, the strings were eventually returned and Branchala’s stars have returned to the sky.
