Orkarl Cat Dancer
A subcult for Yinkin
Orkarl was a
hunter and devotee of Yinkin. So close was he to his god that he
spent more time with the steads Alynxes, than providing meat for
the table. Eventually the chieftain had had enough, and told Orkarl
that he had to prove his worth to the clan, rather than sunning
himself in the yard.
that Donandarson did not seem to have much trouble getting his supper
at night, after a day of sitting on his backside simply strumming
his harp. `Donandarson proves his worth every night by helping us
forget the days hardships, with his clever songs and skilful playing',
said the chieftain. Angered, Orkarl said that if a show of skill
was what the chieftain wanted , then Orkarl would show the chieftain
something which would amaze him. With that he jumped to the rafters
of the longhouse. Leaping across roof beams and scampering up roof
supports where nothing compared to the death defying dives and mid
air twisting that he performed as he danced through the rafters.
When he finally put his feet to the ground the chieftain and his
guests cheered Orkarl long and loud.
told Orkarl that from that day forward there would always be a bowl
for him at his table as long as he amused the clan with his antics.
Even Donadarson was impressed, and composed a special tune to accompany
Orkarl's aerial dancing, also giving him the name Cat Dancer.
