L: Larenna Winsillis

 

  • Major Motivation: Escape from the mirror
  • Supporting Motivation: Find someone on the other side who can see her
  • Quirk- Her magic manifests in skulls and bones regardless of the spell
  • Flaw- Proud, finds it difficult to ask for help
  • Like/Dislike – Likes finding new arcane sigils

 

Introduction:

You stumble into a house, the door flapping open behind you in the strong winds. The villagers didn’t expect them to hit at that time of day, and it fanned the flames out, spreading farther around the village.

You figured you could run through this last house and make it to the river close by. Other villagers were running around.

“Hey, over here!”

You hear a voice and the sound of someone pounding on glass. The voice is muffled too. Glancing about, you see a half-elven woman inside of a mirror. Her features marred by fear.

You approach, cautious of magic now. She waves you over.

“I saw the flames outside. I don’t want to die in this accursed mirror, not before taking revenge,” she swallows and breaks eye contact, staring at her fingernails. “Look, if you could just move this mirror outside, I’ll see you rewarded.”

You can feel the heat outside. You don’t think just moving the mirror outside will save her. She stares back at you, proud, but you can see fear behind those eyes. She may not ask again, and you feel like she’s important somehow.
