"A beast that breathes fire, causing havoc in towns and in the mountains. Fires with unknown causes are said to be this creature's work. When fires occur out of nowhere today, they are written off as spontaneous combustions, but in older times they were said to be caused by the anger of the Porewit. Whenever a fire like that occurred, the people would immediately go to Porewit's altar and sacrifice cows and sheep. They must never laugh about it, for if they did, the fire would spread to their houses as well. "
