Altador Plot[edit]

Main article: Altador Plot

The clue for The Gatherer was released on April 27, 2006. The user first had to find a sick Vaeolus by visiting the Quarry, Farm, or Docks. Once found, the petpet had to be brought back to the Archivist's Office; then the user had to visit the Alchemy Club. After collecting the medicine from the Quiggle, the user had to go to the Punch Club and click the pie on the table. Next, came visiting the Mummified Jelly in the Restive Tomb and refresh the page at 59 or 29 seconds past the minute until a small part of the Jelly became clickable. All of the items had to be brought to the Office, where the user chose an option every minute depending on the picture. The user had to do this 10 times until the Vaeolus healed. If the wrong option was chosen or even a single minute was skipped, then the whole process had to be repeated. Eventually a Skeith from the PPL showed up holding a certificate. Clicking on the image of Fauna on the certificate revealed The Gatherer constellation.

Book of Ages - Chapter 10, The Gatherer[edit]

Fauna's Book of Ages portrait
The gentlest heart in our world belongs to Fauna, an Acara whose kindness knows no bounds. Fauna always had a knack for nurturing living things. On the small farm where she grew up, the apples Fauna tended grew to an enormous size and were the most delicious in all the land. Everyone smiled and waved when Fauna walked through town, and Petpets often followed at her heels.

One day, the Acara noticed that the parade of Petpets that usually followed her was nowhere to be seen. Seeing Fauna's confusion, a kind old Usul spoke up. "Sorry, m'dear. That storm last night scared them so badly, they all went running off into the dark. Poor things. I do hope they'll be able to find their way home."

Knowing that many predators roamed the edge of town, Fauna immediately set off to find the Petpets, followed by two pitchfork-wielding townsfolk who came along to protect her. After a while, Fauna heard the alarmed squeals of a Snorkle. They rushed toward the noise and found the Petpet cornered by a giant, snarling creature.

The creature glared at Fauna and the others as they approached, letting out a terrifying snarl. Even though they were the only ones armed, the two scared villagers began to back away.

Fauna, however, simply knelt, and held out an apple. The beast growled and bared its teeth, but Fauna did not flinch. The townsfolk gasped as the beast drew close, its jaws just inches from the Acara's face. The creature then opened its mouth and gently took the apple from Fauna's outstretched hand. She smiled and stroked the beast's furry mane. The villagers nearly fell over in shock as the creature began to lick the giggling Acara's face.

The story of gentle Fauna, who could tame the fiercest beast with her kindness and patience, soon travelled far and wide. Then, one day, a tall white Lupe knocked upon her door...

Better Than You[edit]

Fauna has been a contestant on Better Than You once:

Date: July 15, 2010 While I can't approve of using Petpet labour in dangerous mining operations, I think Solly the Sandan's bravery deserves a little support! This poor Sandan needs your help rescuing his treasure from the Bori Miner. Will you help me protect this little fellow?
