Healer

Healers are curanderos. They work with plants, bodies, and spirits to bring harmony, health, and righteousness to individuals and places. They can diagnose diseases, soothe spirits, and align reality with its ideal form. They specialize in healing and in understanding the various planes and principles of existence. Healers make strong physicians, but are also useful for their in-depth knowledge of plants and animal life as well as their understanding of spirits and other esoteric matters.

Perception

Healers are generally welcome for their healing abilities and their reputation as benevolent actors. They are not universally trusted however, especially by those in power, since students of history know that the healthy reality which a healer might strive to achieve is not always the one that will benefit a specific individual.
