Here we have, in order:
Spirit of Time: The Keeper
Spirit of Manipulation: Salem - the Snake
Spirit of Song: Birch - The bird of paradise
Spirit of Hope: Ayrsh
Essence of ???? - Butterfly - Ayrsh Mentor
Now, I promised more information here.
Birch & Salem are, as you can see, spirits. But they are not cats. being a spirit isnt limited to that. Its excelling in a feat and then being blessed by a divine being. (in the case of the original spirits of TGB, this were the Sun- & Moonfish)
The Keeper, is the spirit of time and lives underneath the old lands.
Ayrsh, well, the only picture of her that we have is of her as a fading pink butterfly. She was Alriyels adopted child / sister & Apprentice and was to be trained to be his deputy, upon reaching adulthood. She was still just a normal child though. She got part of the butterflies power though. But after he died, she and the rest of his exiled followers, fled into the mountains to the north and are still residing there.
How she ascended to a spirit? Thats for a later time.
As for the butterfly... Isn't it perfectly harmless and cute? :^)
edit: the time spirits size is not acurate. the others are. (thats a big ass snek.
