The daughter of a pair of astrologers in the Ustalavic town of Thrushmoor, Rozalia Tilescu was born under the sign of the Mother. The Mother is the heart of the Cosmic Caravan, she who grants warmth and comfort against the forbidding cold of the wilderness. Rozalia embodied her sign quite well, growing into a kind and nurturing young woman. Her parents taught her to read the heavens for omens, as well as educating her about the ley lines of power that ran beneath the ground.
Thrushmoor itself has some particularly strong ley lines that connect the two standing stones known as the Star Stelae. Through years of study and experimentation, Rozalia was able to tap into this power in order to become an arcane spellcaster. She would use this power to heal the injured and grant succor to those in need.
She married young, her husband a handsome scholar from the Sincomankti School of Sciences. She gave birth to a son, Caraid, when she was twenty years old, and the three of them lived happily for a short time. One day, Rozalia's husband left town on an archaeological expedition to some ancient Kellid ruins near Carrion Hill. He never returned.
Heartbroken, Rozalia dedicated her life to raising Caraid and guiding him along a good path. But when he became a teenager, his strange powers began to manifest. Without a means of controlling them, the powers would be a danger to himself and others. Rozalia sought the aid of myriad priests and scholars, but none could say where Caraid's powers came from or how to keep them in check. Desperate to aid her son, the witch knew that her only choice was to accept a mysterious job offer from Thrushmoor's ruler, Count Lowls, in order to afford the exorbitant cost of admitting Caraid to Briarstone Asylyum. Perhaps there, somebody would know what to do to help her son...
