The World of Darken
Very little is known about Vanessa. She has moved around alot in the last couple of years. Normally she either stays to rural area’s or hides in larger cities. When in the towns or cities she is more than happy anyone who needs medical attention for little to no charge. The gratitude of the citizens only go so far especially when they see her cast her spells. It is not uncommon for her to have to flee a city because women think she will curse her children. Over time this has taught Vanessa that the easiest way to escape or to hide is to use complusion to make people leave her alone. She does not do this to cause hurt but she has started to enjoy it.
She always has a birdlike dinasaur in tow. This is a very mischevious creature always trying to cause trouble. The best times were when it jumped out of a womans bag when she opened it and the woman passed out. It will always run away when frightened and hide because of its small size. However, it is very loyal to Vanessa.
She has been around the area wandering to some of the towns she normally visits and has been surprised at the armies occupying them. She has avoided them due to not wanting to be caught up in politics or be pinned down.
