Historical Information
Age Third Age

Muses are magical creatures of artistic inspiration. They tend to only manifest to authors, bards, painters and poets and help them express themselves via art. They're different from a mage's familiar in that they, albeit still bound to their patrons via magic, have more free will than familiars do, and they can become visible or disappear seemingly into thin air in the blink of an eye unlike familiars who are always material. It is unknown why some bards have muse companions and others do not; summoning a muse appears to be part of a ritual to unlock a bard's potential, but little research has been made regarding the subject matter.
