Ianthe the Knitter

Ianthe (a.k.a. the Knitter, the Scholar, Yanti) (she/her)

The knitter and scholar who lives in Easlington.  

Physical Description

Identifying Characteristics

Ianthe is one of the few people in Easlington who could afford to invest in corrective glasses.

Special abilities

Ianthe's blood mage is tied to temperature regulation. She usually uses spells to keep cold boxes in the floor of her home which allow her to store dairy, fresh meat, and vegetables for longer periods of time. She can also work spells into the things she knits, often to protect the wearer from extremes of cold or heat. As a child, she demonstrated her talent by unconsciously keeping the air around her at a comfortable temperature regardless of the weather or time of year.

Mental characteristics

Education

Ianthe's father taught his wife and children to read. After this, it was impossible to keep Ianthe from reading every book she could find. She has a sizable collection of books ranging from history and folktales to fiction novels and poetry. She is self-taught in the areas of social etiquette, human psychology, and Chereladian history.

Employment

Ianthe knits and crochets on commission, usually for barter or limited coin. She also acts as a scholar for illiterate locals and the message center for the Easlington area.

Mental Trauma

When she was sixteen, Ianthe's sister, Tania was accused of being a blood-mage and burned at the stake. Ianthe tried first to control the temperatures around her little sister and then tried to heal the burns afterward. It took Joel's intervention to keep Ianthe from killing herself trying to save their sister. Ianthe continues to blame herself for her sister's death, since the blood-mage activity Tania was accused of was Ianthe's.

Intellectual Characteristics

Ianthe is intensely curious and loves to read about new things. Quick-minded and insightful, she learns everything she can. She can be cynical at times, especially in regards to the class divide in Chereladi.

History

Nikolas's upbringing and education allowed him the opportunity to teach his wife and children to read, in spite of their lower class station. He brought with it his passion for learning and none of the children sparked to it quite like Ianthe. They spent many hours huddled around candles with their heads bent together over a book.

History

Before Ayden was born, Ianthe had never considered ever being a mother. She still isn't particularly fond of children in general, but Ayden is a special case. They have been very close since he was old enough to recognize her and Joel jokingly calls him "Ayden the Wonderchild," because of Ianthe's enormous fondness for him.

Nicknames & Petnames

Ayden primarily calls Ianthe "Yanti."
