A slight, human Native woman in her early 20’s. She wears an oversized surplus military armor jacket, better to conceal a machine pistol inside, as well as an old necklace with a bear tooth on it, which is a health spell sustaining focus.

She grew up working with her father Kimo Alten, a rural Salish-Shidhe veterinarian who did a sideline as a “street doc,” fixing up wounded smugglers and ‘runners. She was always an empathetic sort, and often could literally feel people’s (and animal’s) pain while she was helping to treat them. While performing surgery on a wounded bear, she magically awakened, and found that Bear had given her both a proficiency with healing spells, and some help in absorbing and shaking off wounds herself- she had always been unusually sensitive to her injuries.

She left home to study magic further under a shaman in a neighboring village, and learned much, while also improving her skills as a healer. On a break, she returned home and found her father dead- a gun battle of some sort took place at his clinic, and he suffered a fatal wound. After properly sending him off and closing up his shop, she took on some work for a contact of her father’s talislegging into Seattle, where she stays with Emanuel Notaro, an old family friend. She heard a rumor that some of the people involved in her father’s death had come up from Seattle for a run, and has been seeking more info, while also slipping further and further into the shadows.

She recently saved up enough to get a pain editor implanted, helping her to cope with her extreme sensitivity, and she has come to rely on it heavily. She is looking for more work, both to expand her talents and to be able to pay or trade for more info about her father’s death. She has always been terrible at using computers and other electronic devices, and likes to keep her gear minimal and simple for this reason.
