Rutherford, Katie

Description:

Profession

Level 4 College Freshman (Astronomy Major)

Party Role

Inventor

Investigation Style
Faced with horrors impossible to describe, she retreats into the only thing she knows: math, particularly in regards to astronomy. If anything she would try to plump the cosmos for secrets to an OCD level. Of course, this all could be too much for her already.

Now that she’s managed to survive longer than we realized, she’s cobbled together some manner of mnetal defense to just make it from one day to the next. While she is weak and fragile, her creations are far less so.

Super Science

Katie merges applied sciences schematics with the magical diagrams from Laura’s diary, creating equipment for the team that lies somewhere between the two.

Magic Spells

While Katie has access to all of Laura’s spells, she probably won’t cast them, at least in the same way…she doesn’t have the SP for it anyway. Instead, she makes super science, magic artifacts, or some combination of the two.

Spell names in bold are currently equipped.

“Dalloway’s Dervish” (Book)

A cone of cycloning winds blasts from the caster, starting at “0 wide” but ending up at 2 squares wide and 8 long. Anyone within the cone takes 2d6+4 damage. If cast in conjunction with Anemos’ razorwind, it doubles the damage; further, Laura has a good feeling that this could be used to launch the wind imp (unharmed) further squares than he could normally travel on his own. Unlike normal spells, this ability is more like a wand: to cast it, Laura must rip one of the pages out of her subverted copy of Mrs. Dalloway, which disintegrates like flash paper. It currently has 209 of 216 “charges” left. Costs 4 sanity to cast. (Fire + Fire + Air + Air, Attack Spell, through a subverted copy of Virginia Woolfe’s Mrs. Dalloway, presumably an “excerpt” of the Fire Book.)

Other Spell-Like Abilities:

“Ritual of the Sacrificing Seal” (Ritual)

While the party does not yet have the true, most accurate version of this spell, Laura managed to cobble together a “back-up” in case of emergencies. If the caster completes this ritual at one of the four seals around Quiet Brook, invoking the name of its elemental minion, that demi-god is banished back to containment. This spell requires the suicide of the caster, often by slitting one’s own throat, though other deaths may be acceptable: loosing your blood on the seal seems to be the important part, and it’s probably necessary that the wound is self inflicted to prove your dedication. Everyone in the party knows this version of the spell.
