Meet the Polygon Pets: Paarja Part 3

3 min readSep 27, 2022

September 27th, 2022 — The story of Paarja continues with the next page of our saga! If you missed the first two pages and intro to Paarja, the Maelstrom of Kerjag and a proud storm prince of Ventus — the Prime Elemental Realm of Air, you can view it here!


Paarja flexed his claws against the stone and roared:

“I am the Maelstrom of Kerjag!”


A blast of lightning, as thick as a tree trunk, flashed down from the sky. It pummeled the peak of a faraway mountain and shattered it. Stone sprayed in all directions as sparks and molten rock zapped away from the point of impact.

Paarja reveled in the destruction. His power was magnificent — worthy of his status. It was his right to command the storm. His identity.

…So it was more than a surprise when a bolt of lightning slammed into him from above.

The sensation of foreign lightning hit him like a sledgehammer. Even as the impact smashed the breath out of his lungs, Paarja looked up at the sky with wide eyes as he plummeted to the ground. He couldn’t even process the pain through his disbelief.

The sky had struck him.


The disbelief simmered. Boiled. And then, in one sweeping wave of heat, it transformed into a violent, curling anger that flared inside his chest.


Stay tuned for the fourth part of Paarja’s story, which will be instrumental to participate in our Treasure Hunt event for the Royal Sapphire Pets and their playable metaverse avatars that you will receive!
