Here is Ryuuna. I added in the headings you asked for and tweaked one or two small parts:
If we go with the travelling caravan idea she can easily fit into that role travelling from town to town selling herbs, spice, potions and healing presses and in between times going out into the woods to gather ingredients, quite a nice peaceful life in fact. I just placed her in a rural settlement as a starting point because that suits her character. It can easily be changed. In my mind she has no magical power whatever, the druidic aspect of her nature comes from her religion and approach to life more than a magical or pseudo-magical cult. In her work she's calling upon spirits and gods rather than reciting spells and calling on 'forces'.
She'll be careful to gather herbs and berries at certain phases of the moon and seasons and in particular places and using a sacred blade and will brew her herbal remedies in time honoured ways but she's no witch.
If you want her to have specific game skills she can be a healer, a low-level form of guide or tracker in rural places, especially woodland and she can make up hallucinogenic drugs from fungi which could give another character temporary strength, fight fatigue or be an offensive weapon such as mild poisons. I wouldn't want a powerful skill such as fatal poisons though we can add that if it doesn't unbalance the game.Name:
Ryuuna Umthelemaar ("Ree-you-na Oom-thel-eh-mar")Race:
Lawful-Neutral (maybe some good tendencies will emerge as the tale grows, maybe some evil ones, she can drift in either direction) Age:
Healer/Druid/Pastor/Travelling herbalistPhysical Appearance:
Ryuuna is pretty in an earthy simple way, she stands about five feet three and is proportioned for her height, though on the curvy side. She has long straight black hair to below her waist that she commonly wears tied back in her druidical hair bands and her costume is almost always that of her order of Druemo-Gruarna-Skuursuur ("Dray-mow Grew-ar-nah Skers-oohr") (The Druids of Grass and Sky = think ancient Romano-British/Celtic druidical orders). Please see the attached image.Brief Background:
Ryuuna lives in the village and each morning goes about her rounds visiting the community, she normally returns near the end of the day to talk with ailing people who come to her home where she dispenses herbs, potions and advice. On market days she sets up her herbal remedy stall and does some trade and keeps in touch with the travelling community, though on non-market days she can usually be found in the Market Tavern where she’ll drink tea and conduct her ‘counselling’ sessions.
She is the settlement's resident healer. She's also a species of community carer, offering her small home to travellers to stay if the inns are busy or women travelling alone don't wish to stay there. She does some counselling, spiritual guidance and such, being a general source of comfort to those in difficulty or who need a shoulder to cry on or to dump their woes; she's a kind of spiritual scratching post and cesspit.
On special days when the moon and planets are aligned to her purpose she will go out alone into the nearby hills and woodlands and carefully collect plants, fungi, berries and insects to use in her trade.
She came here only three years ago, arriving on a caravan one day with some people she had met on the road. She liked the place and chose to set down her roots although the urge to journey on still makes her restless. Originally from a city a week's travel to the north, she was intending to travel on southwards to warmer climes but liked it here. The place lacked a local healer so she chose to stay.
She is unmarried and due to her pastoral work, avoids romantic entanglements though its common for male travellers passing through to speak with her and try their luck, she is after all, a handsome woman and can frequently be found relaxing in the taverns, though she is teetotal and will drink only tea.
Druemo-Gruarna-Skuursuur are a pragmatic order and practice an understanding of the balance of all things: Beginning and ending; birth must end in death; growth is balanced by decay; joy in one person is offset by despair in another; yin and yang if you will. The order is deeply rural, peaceful and caring, they practice medicine with herbal and fungal compounds, compacts and broths as well as the usual use of clean water, cleanliness, bandaging, splinting and a number of other obvious and well known medical practices. They do not practice blood letting or the use of leeches.Family:
Her parents are from the tradesman class. They still live in the city (name to be decided by GM) some miles away. She had a baby brother who died as a toddler from an infection. This incident prompted her to go down the route she has taken in life. Her mother is a herbalist and potion maker and druidess, her father a brewer. In the city druids are less accepted than in more rural regions so her mother hides the sacred side of her beliefs and works merely as a herbalist and potion maker. From her mother's and father's trades combined Ryuuna has picked up some ideas on adding herbal fusions into beer to make some interesting drinks... Other more distant family members are scattered about in the city and contact varies from frequent to rare. Some parts of the family do not see eye-to-eye.Fears:
