Cultivated, living balls of tangled thorn vines that fly and are kept as pets of the people of Beauty. Thornae are the basis for a tunnel-bridge, leading to the realm, Beauty. They have a unique quality that allows them to converge at one root point and grow upwards at super-speed in a spiraling motion; forming bands of energy called an Energy Vine. At its end point in the sky, a portal called Eden’s Gate is opened, connecting Earth to Beauty.
