Yes, this turns out to be ‘the Fang’. There are probably a few more things like this, which may seem odd at first, but will be explained as you read the later chapters.
The point about describing enemies more is well taken. The problem for me is I’m a bit of an obsessive describer, so I’m trying to find a balance where I can create a strong visual and keep the story moving. Of course, you’ll be the judge of whether I got it right or not
I’m glad you find Cayde likable here. He’s such a fun character to write for.
Thanks again for taking the time.
