* Hekate Who was regarded with some rulership over earth, sea and sky, in the post-Christian writings of the Chaldean Oracles (2nd–3rd century CE) as well as a more universal role as Savior (Soteira), Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul. Hekate is variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, night, light, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, ghosts, necromancy, and sorcery. Regarding the nature of her cult, it has been remarked, "she is more at home on the fringes than in the centre of Greek polytheism. Intrinsically ambivalent and polymorphous, she straddles conventional boundaries and eludes definition." Source: []
The Infinity Springs emerge all over the Verse.
The largest waters under the WiLDs regulation, known to date, are Arcadias Infinity Springs, which are located just at the edge of Vulcan City, and are already visible from the top of the high city walls. This Property is entrusted to Arcadia's Alchemist Metanaut, but also includes a small B'n'B, to the east of the grounds, which is run by WiLD Vulcanite and popular with those who want to be close to the City and, at the same time, feel like they are on a nature holiday with beautiful views.

WiLD Vulcanite's Event Restaurant, is home to a large pond in front of the old cabin and another small infinity-shaped-spring underground, both are originating from underneath the Druid's Shrine.
The Druid's Shrine location gives the water a very special energy, said to not only heal a malnourished soul, but also to revitalise the life-force energy within, supporting one to find meaning in life.
All over Arcadia and beyond its green bounds, it is therefore a very sought after good that is not been given out to everyone. Only the purest of hearts will be granted access, to maintain the balance and prevent the dark forces from getting too close to the secrets of The Sacred Waters.
There are multiple Springs shaped like the "holy trinity" symbol in different quadrants. To the Sorceresses of the WiLD, the three points represent the natural elements of earth, air, and water. On a spiritual level, it has also been thought to symbolise life, death, and rebirth.
The first one on record, is located at the North-West coast of Arcadia, overlooking the indigo blue ocean, where the connection to the elements is stronger.
Mount Nysa To the south west of Boreas's central plateau stands Mount Nysa. Just to the north west is the Harpie's Nest.
The mountains were home to the Oreads, members of the Ourea, the young goddesses of the mountains. The Ourea are the children of the earth goddess Gaia. Formerly ruling the land, they have not been seen since pre-history, but legend records that they are asleep within their mountains and will one day awaken. WiLD Vulcanite will be there, welcoming them back.
The Original Springs are located in the Mountains of Boreas, to the south west of Boreas's central plateau. Surging from deep under the icy grounds of the Mountains and surfacing in the shape of an Infinity Symbol, or number 8, partially above the ground and then continuing underground, in a sacred cave, by the Sothern Border, dividing the Mountains from the Underworld of Hades.
A large cross on pillars is surrounded by 4 arrows, pointing in different directions. These arrows are believed to indicate the 'Balance of all' or the 'Hermetic principle - as above so below'. The cross is warding off evil, protecting the sacred caves, and is said to be creating balance through keeping the light and the darkness where they are meant to be.
The last of the Infinity Springs has been hidden in plain sight. Many rumors surround these, supposedly cursed waters and few have dared to get close enough to investigate the land that is guarded by The WiLD Ones.
These sacred Grounds are guarded by an old Coven of Sorceresses, known commonly as 'the WiLD ones', who is believed to harness the power of the Original Waters to create a protective shield over those lands that provide access to this liquid life-source. There is no proof of this, to our knowledge, but neither is there evidence that would suggest otherwise.
WiLD Vulcanite is the last, known, living descendent of that magickal lineage and functions as Guardian of all Sacred Waters. Still today, you will see her in the Verse, maintaining many sacred grounds across the quadrants, with the help of her Vulcanites Phearei & Roy and the Alchemists of the Verse.
