(Edit: image slightly broken. It still works if you click on it.)
You would never guess it from Felix's ragtag attire, but he is one of the wealthiest men in all Sylestia! He has the power to manipulate probability, which he uses to win huge sums of gold and go on death-defying adventures. While he arrogantly claims that he was born with this power, it actually began when he won a magic dagger. As long as he possesses it, he cannot lose- that is, until the dagger chooses to forsake him and seek a new owner, the same way that it came into Felix's possession in the first place. Nobody really knows what he does with most of the money he wins. Some people say that he gives it to the poor like a sort of gambling-fueled Robin Hood. However, the truth is even stranger. On certain days, when the weather is just right, the dagger begins to pull at Felix like a magnetic compass. It leads him to the foot of a rainbow, deep in the forest. There he finds an enchanted, bottomless pot, half buried in the ground; this is where he stores his gold. It is unclear whether this pot is able to be accessed without the guidance of the dagger, but if anyone happened to stumble across it, they would be very lucky indeed! Despite all this, if anyone were to suggest to Felix that he is a leprechaun, he would probably be confused and offended. "What do you mean? I'm not a redhead!"

Once in a poor house, there lived a girl named Lily. She was just following a rainbow and managed to get there in time to find a pot of gold! As soon as she touched it, her old dusty clothes become full of bright yellow and green! She even got a tiny companion! Eventually, a little leprechaun popped out of the pot of gold. "Hey, who dares to touch my gold?!" the leprechaun said. Lily said that she was just curious as it was the first time she found the end of a rainbow! The leprechaun was intrigued by her honesty and gave her the responsibility to not let the leprechaun's gold fall in the wrong hands! Now, if anyone desires to be greedy and unkind to others, Lily would give them a lesson!

This is Malus.
Their mother was an old beautiful apple tree. Malus was a bit different than their hundreds of brothers and sisters, which were happy with their monotone life. The apple wanted more than hanging around day in and out, wanted to see the word, go where the sun went at night and follow those butterflys. When they told their mother onec she answered with "But you`re an apple and not supposed to go anywhere. Accept what you are and what you can and connot do". Sadness overcame them.
Then came the day of his great fall. apples that fell would dissapear and return to mother. So when Malus fell their last thought was "I wanted to see the world".
when the apple came to they felt iritation "something feels different". They had hands and legs and could walk! After a wobbly start they looked at moter with determination "I`m afraid and hopeful of what is to come. I will miss you mother, but I will be back to tell you everything." Whith that Malus turned around and went in the direction of the setting sun.

Inspired by the folktale of the crane wife.
Tsuru was a red-crowned crane who fell in love with a poor but kindhearted man. She, being a crane, was famed for both her luck and longevity. Due to this, she decided to share some of her luck with the man whom she so admired. Tsuru went to the King of Spirits, and begged to be able to share her gifts with her beloved.
"Very well," said the King, "but this boon will come at a cost. The luck and longevity you have can only belong to a crane, so when your beloved has possession of it, you can no longer be a crane."
"Anything, anything!" Cried Tsuru. "Just so long as he has fortune, for these gifts are all I have to put a smile on his face."
The King sighed. "Not everything. I will do as you ask, little crane."
And so the King wove his spell, allowing Tsuru to share her luck and life with her chosen mortal. When Tsuru opened her eyes after the spell had finished, she saw that her long, lovely legs had become strange fleshy things. Feathers no longer covered her body, but spread out on the ground around her. Her wings and tail were still present, but now she had the addition of hands, those limbs which she had so loved on her human. Her beak was gone, replaced by a short, human-like face. Her neck was also much shorter, unable to make the elegant lines she once had. Seeing all this, Tsuru cried in both fear and joy, for she was no longer as she had been, but she knew the spell had worked. The King's attendants brought her a silken robe to cover herself with, which she did gladly.
"Now," whispered her monarch. "Now, you may as well go see your human, the one you have given so much up for."
Tsuru stood on unsteady limbs, and began to run down the side of the mountain as fast as she was able. She soon came upon the small wooden hut in which her beloved resided. Just as she was walking up the path, lined with mushrooms and clover, she tripped. Tsuru had never tripped before, as she had always been fortuitous. Shocked, she let out a little gasp as she fell towards the door, closing her eyes. At that exact moment, the door opened and a powerful arm caught her, pressing her to the chest of it's owner. She looked up, only to see what should be her beloved human, yet he was greatly changed. His hair had turned as white as hers, and she could see great crane wings hanging awkwardly from his shoulders. He, too, had become something between a crane and a human, sharing their luck and lives for the rest of their days.

Fernoris walks among the common man, unseen to untrained eyes
Her luster so alluring and bright she tempts those with gold
Riches beyond imagination she promises as prize
Little do man know she has them in her hold
For gold may seem enticing to most
Luring those who follow to a future so bright
They can't see the danger beyond her dose
For Fernoris has them in her grip so tight
Fool these man are to follow their greed
For only the value of article things do they pursue
The value of a life is more enough to heed
So she punishes the greedy with misfortune voodoo
The curse of bad luck follows these men to their end
And should greed still plague man you know
Fernoris follows them wherever they may go

You have no doubt heard of Murphy's Law. Well, meet Murphy's Luck. Simply put, just because something went wrong, doesn't mean that it went badly. It just went differently than expected.

Welcome Clovur Luck, sister of Maeve the Cursed. Born in a family of poor wealth, Maeve grew up to be a pessimist, and always wanting more. Her sister, Clovur, was quiet and observational. No one knew what she was thinking.
The two sisters loved each other, although their personalities were different. One evening on St. Patrick's day, Maeve went outside to find some clovers. I want wealth, she thought. Hours later, she came across a well and made a wish for good fortune. At that moment, she felt like someone was being pulled- pulled towards her. She looked around, and no one was there.
"Who dares wish in the Well of Truth?" The invisible mass thundered suddenly. "You will pay for your greed- as anyone who wishes in the truth is imaginary!" Confused, Maeve took steps back, but it was too late. She fell into the well.
Clovur, days later, came looking for her sister. She came across the same well and cautiously approached it. She, too, made a wish. "I want my sister."
"Do you want to be the spirit of luck? Your sister has been cursed upon her greed for fortune. Only luck can escape curses."
Clovur, shocked by the sudden message, stuttered. "I- I- yes?"
The voice grunted, and told her to step by the well and wish to become the Goddess of Luck. Clovur did as it said, and everything went black.

Sean the Fortuitous
A pirate who made a deal with Lady Luck. Pirates are a superstitious bunch, but nothing will keep them from the pursuit of treasure. This particular pirate captain made a deal with Lady Luck - the fastest ship that sailed the seas in exchange for some treasure.
Lady Luck knew pirates generally aren't trustworthy, and Sean didn't disappoint. Thus, the Lady cursed him to wander the northern seas forevermore in search of treasure.
"Ye shall wander th' seas until ye find th' greatest treasure o' all..."
Perhaps the greatest treasure isn't one luck can find...
