About Gwendolyn the Strange -CORE-
Gwen is a young dark-complected Osirian woman born and raised in Absalom, where she works as a student historian and library aide at the Pathfinder Society's Grand Lodge. Once tapped for field work Gwen proved to be a resourceful, and pragmatic (and often reluctant) field agent, making the hard decisions necessary to achieve the Society's goals.
At the Lodge, she shares a dorm room with the younger Shelynite paladin Apollyanna Sukino. Polly was there to talk Gwen into her purchase of the stubborn owl familiar, Hera, on the basis that an owl would make her owner seem wiser and more intelligent in front of the often snobbish wizards who frequented the Grand Lodge's library.
"Should have gone for the bunny. Bunnies just sit in your pocket and keep you alert with all their fidgeting." ~Gwendolyn the Strange
Gwendolyn is a tall, dark, attractive--if occasionally fierce-looking--ethnic Garundi Osirian woman in her early 20s. A practical city girl, Gwen dresses in stylish pants and high-collar jackets. Far more bookish than her looks would suggest, the trait led, in part, to her moniker. 'It's so strange that all you ever seem to do is hang out in the library when you could be out meeting people.' Gwen is still insecure about her own formidable education in the face of 'actual' wizards.
Gwendolyn is gifted with the ability to see and manipulate the legendary eighth color, the colour of magic that normally only wizards can see--octarine. Gwen can identify most magical auras and texts she is presented with. She can also generate various light-based effects including realistic illusions, static-like discharges, hypnotic rainbow patterns, and personal hard-light armor. Recently she has been able to add sound to these effects. To the untrained eye all these things look like typical (ho-hum) magical fare, but to Gwen's gifted eyes they appear the colour of magic (a sort of yellowish-greenish-purple).
