A tiger kami named Gushiang recently died in the Forest of Spirits, and its death had driven its ward, an albino dire tiger of great age named Tieqing, insane with grief. The huge tiger was bent on stalking the forest and attacking any who trespass on its former kami’s territory. That is, until Smriti showed him unbridled kindness.
Tieqing now accompanies Smriti wherever she goes, a loyal and boon friend.
