Purnállo is one of the ancient hero-gods of Xopatl, beings blessed with incredible power by a chunk of the Starstone that fell into the Mildanesi Mountains. The hero-gods helped create the nation of Xopatl, carving it out of the mountains before freeing it from the Empire of Razatlan.1
The time of the hero-gods has long since passed into myth, but Purnállo still remains. Instead of death or divine ascension, Purnállo chose a different path. Nearing the end of her life, Purnállo began to meditate and ritually wrap herself in the magical leaves and vines of the plants of Xopatl. Over the centuries this resulted in her becoming effectively mummified whilst still alive.
Purnállo lives to this day in a temple built around her, the House of Yanti Purnállo. Her essential life functions have slowed to such a point that her heart now beats once a century, and thousands travel to the House of Yanti Purnállo to witness this once-in-a-lifetime event.2
