Giirkha Girgi is the protagonist of an old Vilani folk-tale.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a story about a foolish wanderer who found and entered an enchanted castle where he slept for ten kargukula (roughly 130 years). Upon awakening and returning to his village, Girgi finds his young fiancé grown old and on her deathbed surrounded by five generations of her descendants that could have been his if he had not been so foolhardy.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The story is similar to a Solomani folk-tale about one Rip Van Winkle who falls into an enchanted sleep only to awaken many years later to find the world has changed.

Winkles may also occur as part of a Timer Club ritual.
