About Saorise the Ice Maiden
Being a child of nobility and a sorcerer has meant pleasing many masters. Saorise's father, the Chieftain Halfdan of Aldur, controls the powerful cankorl of Nordol and he has little time for girls and even less for magic wielders. Even the druids walk softly around him.
Herr magical nature was a source of embarrassment for the great warrior and so he was more than happy to send Saorise south to the druid sanctuary of Holmvik (in between Eirikport and Seafors and in a wood surrounded by high hills). The sanctuary is a druid centre and among its many seats of learning certain people are chosen to join the ranks of the Schnarlwulf, the Witchhunters. There are only a dozen or so pairings for the four northern most cankorls. A pairing is a sacred thing and most of the training revolves around maximising the potential of the sorcerer and his guardian. Making sure that they understand each other and being able to rely on the other.
Saorise has been fast tracked due to her nobility; the reach of Halfdan reaches even into Holmvik. The Schnarlers as they are some times referred to are led by Minska Evungsson the Trueskald who seems to have taken a dislike to Saorise's abrasive nature. More likely it has something to do with the way her father treated his son at a previous thing making the youngster look a fool before his peers. It is the druids and rangers under him who have provided what little support and comfort, she may have received.
But enough is enough the Trueskald has spoken and he has put Saorise in a position where she may fail on the simplest of missions. Any failure would be used politically by the Trueskald to hurt Halfdan. To make matters worse, her usual partner, Davi Whiteborne has coincidentally fallen ill, so the troublesome Jorgen Truesight has replaced him...
Saorise and Jorgen's Mission:
This is Saorise's first mission. Important ones are entrusted to the more experienced Hunters and so this is more of a simple test. There is far more at stake for both her and Jorgen.
The once-trustworthy young man, Igvulf Bare-cheeks, ran away from Holmvik with an undisclosed piece of necromantic knowledge, after studying at the feet of the Hierophant Druid leader, Brand Vinterwulfeater. He disappeared in Seafors. But word has reached Holmvik that Igvulf is somewhere in the northern cankorl of Ackrieg. Saorise and Jorgen's task is to find him and either bring him back or kill him, above all make sure that the knowledge does not spread.

Bloodline Arcana: Any time Saorise casts a spell that deals damage, she may choose to have it deal cold damage instead of its normal damage type. When she uses this ability, damaging spells she casts gain the [cold] descriptor. If the spell has an effect other than dealing damage there is no change to its non-damaging effect. If she uses this ability with spells that have the [force] descriptor (such as magic missile), the spell loses that descriptor.
She treats all spells with the [fire] descriptor as one level higher for purposes of spells known and spell slots. Thus while she can choose to know fireball, for her it is a 4th level spell.
