Hillfolk: Tales from Roaring Water
Apothecary and an outsider, trying to balance progress and stability
A healer who has recently returned from travelling among other peoples, where he learnt many skills of an apothecary, Herbmaker desires acceptance from the distrustful clan. His poles are progress vs stability. He wants to teach the clan to look to the future and prepare for the dire changes he predicts.
He wants Shaggy to accept that his ‘outsider’ knowledge has value. Shaggy refuses to countenance competition for his authority as a holder of arcane knowledge.
Herbmaker wants Raven to publicly be known as his student and successor, but she fears censure from the rest of the clan.
