The Squeaking Tribe

Sora, an Oddling Marionette


Sora is the Aeyrie matriarch and the keeper of the Flame of Gnosis which is the symbolic flame by which the Lore of the Land is maintained for future generations to learn and live by. Sora has the gift of flight but she is in her declining years now, a period known as Sunsetting, and soon her wings will pass to another who will continue to carry the mantle of Oddling history.

The name Sora is both a boy’s name and a girl’s name meaning “sky; conch shell”

The Land of Odd: A mystical experience in World-building!

Meet the Oddlings, a deliberate tribute to the humble Podlings developed by Brian Froud for “The Dark Crystal”. Normally a grassroots clan dressed generically in the umbers and ochres of the earth, our redeveloped Oddlings embrace a much wider palette of colour and textiles in their costuming and adopt a wide range of vibrant skin tones quite at odds with the earthy hues of their originators. Much of our collected jewellery and specialty off-cuts have found a home here, lending every one its own unique individuality. With just a few moments browsing, you will see the diversity of character distinct in each beautiful marionette and the world-building potential we are only beginning to cultivate.

Marionette in doll form is approximately 25cm in height or 60cm when strung.
