|Found in an ancient hidden courtyard tucked away near Norsouton, East Westshire, the fabled linnpuzzle was at last revealed to be real, although some say the physical presence of this legendary entity does not necessarily prove her existence, especially as her tendency to turn invisible when startled calls many skeptics to doubt the degree of her connection to our plane of being.
The skeptics, however, are completely ignored by the villagers of the small town in East Westshire near where the courtyard and its fantastical inhabitant were discovered. These locals have been convinced of the truth behind the myths surrounding her presence since 1609, when villager Happler Happny stumbled into a clearing and witnessed linnpuzzle creating an intricate web of willow branches and sprays of white flowers that, when viewed from a distance, described the shape of a smiling face with startling realism. For four hundred years after, her legend was continually enhanced by further scattered sightings, always in clearings that the witnesses could not locate in subsequent searches. She has been sighted climbing trees and gazing curiously down on travelers, swimming with silver fish down a stream, and building similar depictions to the one she was constructing on the occasion of her first sighting.
Scientists have attempted to analyze linnpuzzle for the causes of her remarkable longevity and unbelievable talents; however, she eludes classification, and the archaeologist who found her, Padma Henley - the distant progeny of her original witness, Happler Happny - removed her from the Upperdownside Laboratories in the deep of night and is said to have freed her once again in her familiar hills and streams of East Westshire. Henley refuses to reveal the details of the escape, nor will the archaeologist respond to inquiries concerning the validity of rumors that Padma remains in contact with the nymph. As far as current authorities are aware, linnpuzzle runs and swims, free again, in the place most beloved and protected by her for over four centuries.
