Philomelia is a arcanist-in-training. Her tutor was a stale and strict old man who obsessed more over working in a laboratory rather than practical magick. In order to access his forbidden library, she discovered a spell that allowed her to climb the sheer walls of the tower. It was risky and she had to stay several hours before she could use the spell again to climb down: but that gave her plenty of time to read the dusty old tomes. She had managed to learn how to summon an unseen servant to help her do menial tasks (of which she had many) as well as to provide distractions for quick escapes.

Unfortunately her mentor discovered her treachery and kicked her out of his sanctum. She is now alone in an uncaring world, seeking to improve her skills while struggling to survive.
