Considered the premier traveling circus in the Twelve Kingdoms and the Butterfly Kingdom's main cultural export, the Silken Wings Circus spends half of the year training and performing at the Court, and half the year traveling through the Empire performing and gathering new talent.

It is said that the Silken Wings can at times seem to flit from place to place without being seen traveling, leading to rumors of special Butterfly mystical abilities, disguises, or the knowledge of secret underground passageways running beneath the Twelve Kingdoms.

On last year's progress around the Twelve Kingdoms, the Circus had important news to share.

Notable Circus Folk

  • Ringmaster Te, having been grievously injured by zombies on his first (accidental) foray into the Northern Lands, may be less keen to lead the circus procession next time we are in the barbarian lands. Happily, he has completely recovered from his wounds.
  • Li Merit (Drew) has served as the provisioner and stage manager for the Circus for about ten years, after retiring from his travels as a merchant.
  • Zhu Cai-Wen (Jerry) has only recently joined the circus after being escorted to the Butterfly Kingdom by Shen Wei Han. His official role is to warm up the crowd before a performance, but he does other odd jobs as well. His pet ferret is nearly as popular with young women as he is. He has been dabbling with fireworks, and may switch over to assisting the Fireworks Master.
  • Wu Shuyan (Adina) has been a circus performer all her life, from acrobatics to cart driving. Her special talents, however, are in snake charming, including the use of chi-enhanced snakes in healing. Now a Headliner!

  • Comedy Min-Su and her Amazing Monkeys of Distraction!
