Design! ... What did I tell you about spoiling the ending of stories!”
“Something stupid, so I forgot it!”—Hoid and Design
Appearance and Personality
Like other Cryptics, Design is a creature with stiff robes and a shifting pattern for a head. Her head pattern is lacy and intricate, and seems to be more fine and graceful than Pattern's. She has a musical, feminine voice.
Abilities and Attributes
In the months or years leading up to his death, Elhokar had been seeing Cryptics, in their Shadesmar form, in mirrors. He seems to have also spotted a Physical form of a Cryptic at some point, possibly Design. While Elhokar was seeing Cryptics in mirrors for a while, he only began saying the First Ideal just before he died. Hoid later rescued Design from the Fused in Kholinar and bonded her himself.
