Her parents were originally from the Clanlands, following the nomadic lifestyle across the vast territory they inhabited. Her mother was a very talented witch in her own right and though many of the clansmen were suspicious of her sorcery they never the less respected her power. Until one day they lost a battle where her auguries had declared victory, and her husband turned on her. Pressed by the rage of his people he cast her out to fend for herself among the wilderness, never knowing she was with child.
She travelled for many months, expending much of her magical energy each day just to survive, until she arrived in Talarea. She took many odd jobs just to provide what basics she needed and though dirty and ill fed she attracted the eye of a minor merchant. He was an honest and kind man who offered her a position in his household, where her auguries were able to bring him increased wealth. He eventually came to care for her and when the girl child was born he adopted her as his own. From her mother she learned to commune with the powers around her, while her father taught her the worth of the world and to always stay true to her word.

Scent (Ex): This special quality allows a creature to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by sense of smell. Creatures with the scent ability can identify familiar odours just as humans do familiar sights.
The creature can detect opponents within 30 feet by sense of smell. If the opponent is upwind, the range increases to 60 feet; if downwind, it drops to 15 feet. Strong scents, such as smoke or rotting garbage, can be detected at twice the ranges noted above. Overpowering scents, such as skunk musk or troglodyte stench, can be detected at triple normal range.
When a creature detects a scent, the exact location of the source is not revealed—only its presence somewhere within range. The creature can take a move action to note the direction of the scent. When the creature is within 5 feet of the source, it pinpoints the source’s location.
A creature with the scent ability can follow tracks by smell, making a Wisdom (or Survival) check to find or follow a track. The typical DC for a fresh trail is 10 (no matter what kind of surface holds the scent). This DC increases or decreases depending on how strong the quarry’s odour is, the number of creatures, and the age of the trail. For each hour that the trail is cold, the DC increases by 2. The ability otherwise follows the rules for the Survival skill. Creatures tracking by scent ignore the effects of surface conditions and poor visibility.
Improved Evasion (Ex): When subjected to an attack that normally allows a Reflex saving throw for half damage, Worzel takes no damage if he makes a successful saving throw and half damage even if the saving throw fails.
Empathic Link (Su): Isobel has an empathic link with Worzel to a 1 mile distance. She can communicate empathically with Worzel, but cannot see through his eyes. Because of the link’s limited nature, only general emotions can be shared. Isobel has the same connection to an item or place that Worzel does.
Deliver Touch Spells (Su): Worzel is able to deliver touch spells for Isobel. If they are in contact at the time Isobel casts a touch spell, she can designate Worzel as the “toucher.” Worzel can then deliver the touch spell just as Isobel would. As usual, if Isobel casts another spell before the touch is delivered, the touch spell dissipates.
