Isobel Thomas comes from a sturdy yeoman small farming and crafting family in Yorkshire. Sharp, clever, and a sponge for learning, she attended Schola, enjoying the liminal spaces of Seal House a great deal. Immediately on leaving school, she apprenticed as a Penelope with Gabriel Edgarton as her apprentice master. As Old As The Hills begins, she's about a year or eighteen months from finishing her apprenticeship. She has a deceptively innocent English rose appearance, which works quite well for getting people's cooperation during investigations.
