Raiders of Asteir
Elyssa of Whitehearth
A village healer who chose to accompany the party on their adventures after their stay in her town. This was a terrible mistake, as it turns out.
Elyssa was the village healer in the small hamlet of Whitehearth, the only village within walking distance of the haunted Castle Winterlock. After aiding the party in their quest to visit Winterlock and obtain the magical crown which was supposedly left there, Elyssa chose to accompany the group when they left the village at the end of their (ultimately unsuccessful) adventure.
She traveled with the party for some time, acting as a healer, guide and valuable voice of reason. And though her gentle ways conflicted thoroughly with the greedy, self-interested attitude of the rest of the party, she remained with them until the end of their adventures. Unfortunately for her, Elyssa was killed during one of their final adventures and her body was possessed by a spiritual entity which called itself “ANNA,” a being which continued to follow the party and act as their healer in her stead. As fates worse than death go, however, it could have been a lot worse.
