Saige is a young medusa with a lithe body toned from life in the Plains of Dust covered in sand colored scales. Her eyes are red as are those of the snakes atop her head; they flare briefly when she uses her Petrifying Gaze. She dresses in sand colored leather armor, and wears as sand colored hooded cloak, which she keeps drawn to conceal her face and head from view, and to protect against someone accidentally meeting her gaze.

Saige is a faithful servant of Zivilyn and sometimes he grants her glimpses of the future. She is something of a meddler though and often manipulates people to take action on her visions. Fortunately Zivilyn is an understanding god, and does not hold this against her, as he continues to bestow his favor upon her.

She is a wanderer. She never settles in one area for too long. One area she frequents often though is the Grandfather Tree. She makes a pilgrimage to the Grandfather Tree every turn of the seasons. She frequents civilized areas only when she must obtain supplies. She is self-reliant; preferring to rely only on herself and her faith in her god.


Saige is a young medusa, who is a distant relative of medusae worshippers of Chislev that once called the town home. She is away from her people trying to make her own place in the world. A vision given her by Zivilyn has revealed to her that the fate of the world rests in the hands of a band of heroes based out of Stone Rose. She has made it her goal to prod them along the path of destiny.

Design Notes:

This write-up uses the racial levels I worked up for the medusa. Other than that she is a rules as written character.
