No numbers yet; I’m just trying to get the basic idea of who this person is. Subject to change.
Edythe is a scholarly nun who has been allowed access to the covenant
- because she wants access to its library (she already knows most things that can be known, and wants to know more)
- to bring the magi onto the path of righteousness
- because the covenant is prepared to pay her convent a pittance, and convents are always poor
In template terms, this is a hybrid of the Female Scholar and the Mystic Nun (without a lot of mysticism). Obviously my model is Hildegard of Bingen, with a slight bias towards going out and doing.
Where the convent is should be established - close enough that she can reside there most of the time?
