Not having much luck finding a picture for her, I'll Finn ConnellyCommonborn spyCharacter SheetPersonality:
swap this out once I have time to draw something.
Finn's hair is shorter and scruffier.
Finn is exuberant and friendly, but difficult to pin down. Blessed with an abundance of personal charm and a silver tongue that could sell snake oil to a gorgon, deception comes easily to her. Combine this with the constant danger nipping at the heels of anyone with magical talent and you get a girl who tends to keep the world at arms length. Over the years she's gotten quite good at conversational misdirection, subtly rerouting chats any time the topic begins drifting to close to her numerous secrets with no one the wiser.
Finn is an excellent listener, having discovered early on that all it takes to gain many a person's trust is to provide a willing ear for them to air their grievances. In truth she genuinely enjoys speaking with others, and the need for personal secrecy can be draining at times.
Very little will get a visible rise from Finn unless she chooses to let it, but she has a somewhat volatile temper and is not above acts of petty revenge if she thinks she can get away with them.Background:
The youngest of three daughters born to a Caravan guard and a merchant, Finn's entire life has been spent traveling the continent. The Connelly family once lived in Sacrafel but fled generations ago, when the noble houses began snuffing out any signs of magic talent not stemming from their own lines. For as far back as any of the family records stretched, Abyssal-blooded sorcerers were common, a few rare cases manifesting the blood so strongly that the bearers grew horns, tails or other signs of their distant in-human ancestry. As the blood thinned fewer and fewer children showed magical talent, until the family began to believe it had finally died out. The sister's grew up with cautionary tales of distant relatives who'd been caught preforming magic and suffered horrific fates, so when Finn began to exhibit signs of arcane talent the three formed a conspiracy of sorts, keeping it secret from even their parents.
For her part, Finn seemed content to let her magic gather metaphorical dust. Instead she honed her social talents as she grew, as well as a knack for cooking. Eventually she was hired by the caravan master as a cook and, in a less official capacity, as a sort of peacekeeper. Long months on the roads wear at the mind, driving up tensions and sparking arguments between even the most peaceful of people, but Finn proved adept at defusing potentially explosive situations.Recent history:
6 years ago Finn's eldest sister married a young man and moved with him to Sacrafel, giving birth to a daughter soon after. The sisters kept in touch, but just before the caravan was set to pass through the city Isabel's correspondence suddenly ceased. When the caravan arrived in the city Finn rushed to her sister's house only to find it empty. The caravan was forced to move on before long, but despite protests from her parents Finn stayed behind to try and find out what happened.Skills:
Equally comfortable infiltrating the nobility and their servants. Adept at mimicking accents and affecting behavioral quirks of a vast range of people thanks to travel experience. Oddly lucky.

- Refers to people by informal nicknames to avoid getting too attached to them

- Insists on cooking for anyone she likes and deems "too skinny"
- Prone to stargazing
