“Ākm the Stone Seeker”

Judging Highlights:

“We both felt that Akm the stone seeker seemed to emerge directly out of the spirit of The Dark Crystal. There is something very sensitive and moving about this character.”

– Wendy Froud

Creature Backstory:

Ākm the stone seeker is a quite slow creature…He feels though every tremble of the Earth, he hears how stones grow and moss whisper. He knows, he just knows where one or the other stone could be found. Whether you need a pebble that would tell you your true name, or a gem that would make your roses grow higher, or a spiral stone to predict with, or just some luck- you should go see Ākm (though he never stays in one place, you have to trust your gut to find him). I must warn you though if he tries hard to find something you need and you no longer need it (he IS slow… ) or it truly isn’t the stone you are looking for, he might eat it out of frustration and you will never see it again.

Ākm’s skin grew to be more like stone through the years, his words are followed with an echo, his eyes see deeper into the soul of every one who approaches him. The helping eye sits on his shoulder warning Ākm if someone is trying to deceive him or might use the stones for evil.
