Hillfolk: Tales from Roaring Water
Clan Watch-chief, torn between freedom and responsibility
Desires power, specifically to be the wife of a chief.
Her poles are freedom vs responsibility. She takes her duties defending the clan seriously, but at the same time dreams variously of adventure, power, or the possibility of enjoying the status of being the wife of a chief – wealth and power without onerous duties.
She wants Shaggy, her brother, to support her in her plans to marry the son of the current chief (the son is a dimwit, easily manipulated). He is not convinced this is a good idea and thinks it will interfere with his own plans to lead the clan.
Meanwhile, she is learning the apothecary’s arts in secret from Herbmaker. She wants him to divulge all his secrets, but is not convinced she can be trusted with everything he knows.
