An aspiring academic from a lower-class family, Ashelin always wanted to study the towering and impressive monuments of Magnimar, having been awed by them all through her childhood. The stark reality of her parents’ economic situation, however, precluded her admission into many of the better arcanists’ schools in the city. Through quite a deal of hard work, Ashelin received a partial scholarship to attend the Twilight Academy in Galduria, not quite the level of prestige that the Magnimarian schools possessed but still better than nothing. But after emerging from the Academy’s high walls with her prized degree and a hefty debt to deal with, the fledgling academic discovered that the arrogance and elitism of the Magnimarian wizarding faculties precluded her from obtaining a long-term position in anything she felt had merit studying. With her contacts back in Galduria harrying her about her debt repayment plan, Ashelin did the only thing she could think of: join the Pathfinder Society in the hopes of penning a decent couple of chronicles to springboard her into a top-tier academic fellowship position (and paying off her student debts to boot).
Ashelin is a curious and spontaneous person, relying on her sharp mind and quick tongue to get her out of most problematic situations. She’s honest and open-minded, but has something of a quick temper. She’s embittered towards the academic institutions of Magnimar due to them looking down on her alma mater, and is rather defensive of her own abilities, especially around other spellcasters. She’s always been interested in the monuments of Magnimar, but has recently become curious about the other ambient magic of Varisia, including the historical Thassilonian empire.
