Gear & Equipment: Drusy wouldn’t be caught dead without her favorite Hedgespun dress, which to a human would appear made of flowing, glittering white chiffon. In its true mien, it appears to be carved of sheer slices of glittering crystal, which chime just slightly when she moves. She also possesses a Hedgespun Wardrobe, and at any special event or gala she reveals some new bit of otherworldly haute couture.

Merits:

Resources: 3 – Drusy is one of the lucky ones; she found herself a new identity and began selling her paintings for large sums of money to local collectors. In her ten years away from Arcadia she’s purchased a nice country house, a nice car, and made friends with other local artists, with whom she chats on a regular basis.

New Identity: 4 – Drusy’s mortal alias is that of Joyce Chin, a lady of Chinese descent who has been painting all her life. She is a prominent member of her Methodist church and holds a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from what is now known as Arcadia University in Pennsylvania.

Mantle: 4 – Flowers don’t spring up in Drusy’s footprints, but her passing does bring with it a cool, fresh breeze scented with flowers and newly cut grass. If she is walking in an area with lots of plants, dew seems to collect on them in her wake. The Spring Crown appears to be a wreath of perfectly formed Black-Eyed Susans, trailing behind it a long, diaphanous veil.

Pledges:

Citizen’s Pledge (Oathsworn)

Reaper’s Pledge (periodically for a week at a time, which whomever she’s painting or sculpting for)

Bio:

Concept:

Amber Hwang (b. 1955) was an art professor and critic of some renown within the Maryland arts community. Although a painter, Amber’s Keeper saw fit to turn her into a caryatid column, one of only many that lined the steps leading from his grand palace to the labyrinthine gardens below. Now made of immobile rock, Amber was forced to stare at her multicolored sisters, most of whom had ceased to even open their eyes. Who knew how long any of them had been in the gardens, anyway? Maybe some had been Taken long before Amber was even born.

One day, Amber’s caryatid “family” was joined by a new column. This one was placed opposite Amber. This gave her pause; the color of this brown, glassy newcomer was familiar. Once Amber concentrated on the newcomer long enough, she put a name to the crystal: amber. Her name had once been Amber. She hadn’t always been a statue.

While her Keeper was out walking his gardens, Amber fled through the Hedge, and she never looked back.

Drusy – her true name now owned by a Fetch who long ago stopped painting and teaching – threw herself into the Court of Spring, championing its ideals and welcoming new members into the Freehold. She considers herself a true Lady, and doesn’t take kindly to those who criticize her (or her work, be it a painting or the way she runs her Court, or the way she carries herself at social gatherings.)
