In late summer, cupids congregate in the highlands of southern Themuria to mate. For three weeks, they can be seen flitting about, pairing off male and female, before their departure at the start of autumn. A group of cupids is called a choir.
Cupids resemble tiny infants with swan-like wings. They are no larger than a human’s fist. Excellent crafters, they carve bows and arrows from wood. Before shooting their weapons, cupids lick the arrows, coating them with a poison which inflicts hysterical passion on the “wounded.” They love nothing more than toying with humans, causing them to fall in love with each other and observing the situations which unfold.
The rest of the year, cupids live among the clouds. They have no need for food or water, but idle by and play, high in the sky, until summer’s onset.
