The Body


Height: 5'7"
Body Type: Graceful
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Very blue

Appearance:
The weight of worlds on her shoulders. All the dreams of her children, all the responsibility of their care. It weighs on Inga without pulling her down. No stooped shoulders, just a grace that isn't flashy. Willow spine strong but flexible, hands always turned to some useful task. Unassuming presence, with hair that didn't dare to actually curl beyond wisps of ringlets. Inga keeps it trimmed and tidy. Never past the sharp points of her shoulder blades, because then it becomes unnecessary work and weight.

Lean but soft. Her stomach is no longer tight or flat. A soft swell that is currently growing to a large one. Growing taut with life rather than youth or muscle. Clothing designed for comfort and warmth. Loose layers that don't stifle like the tight kind. Still able to bend and crouch for her work. Just slower to rise. Ledges found to help her find her height.


The Mind


Craft Strengths: 9/15pts
Scent Cleansing
Vermin Warding
Boundary Alarms
Craft Weaknesses: Spell Weaving. Preservation Spells.

Personality:
Is it temperament that makes a hearth witch different from another witch? Some claim it is. Others attribute it to something more elusive than demeanor. Inga could not tell you which is right. For her, it is existence. A matter of caste rather than choice, so what makes her a hearth witch is herself. A connection to sensation rather than place or thing.

The way a queen reads the land, or a black widow a web, Inga reads the air. The ghosts of psyches left behind. The scents that linger after the actual presence has left. But she senses it too, on those who wear it. Shedding emotion like a cat sheds hair. Feelings to be swept away so that they don't stain. Secrets. Hidden emotions leaking into the room. Overwrought emotions spilling across the world. Tidied away by Inga's craft.

Less overwhelmed by the emotions of others, Inga is not often troubled by her own. But extremes tend to make her weep, whatever their cause may be. Tears of joy and sadness equally likely. She cries when she laughs too hard, and sheds tears in sympathy when wiping away those belonging to someone else. But she is often calm when confronted with the extremes of others. A tightly held control that is shed once the moment is over and she is safe again.

Courteous and gentle, there is a sternness in Inga at work. The mother seeping into all aspects of her life. Especially now that her time as the lover is over. All the joy of her marriage suddenly, and finally, ended.


The Backstory


Family:
  • Eero | Late Husband | Blood Opal to Sapphire Prince (deceased)
  • Eeva | Daughter | Blood Child
  • Nan | Grandmother | Tiger Eye to Rose Priestess
  • Levi | Younger Brother | Purple Dusk to Opal Open

History:
CW: Death
Perhaps her story is an uninspiring one. A tale of history repeating itself. Born to a skyship captain and his healer bride, who died during a border skirmish with Fyrkat. Inga was raised by her grandmother, a priestess named Nea, though the name was forgotten once she became Nan. Adopted by everyone, just as she adopted her grandchildren.

A simple life. Nothing fancy, Nan did not make much as a priestess, but they were never hungry or unclothed. A lack of a good coat a death sentence in the Glacia winters. Inga often helped her grandmother in the temples. And her brother helped the neighbor men carry things. Or their wives, when the men were away. Rickety sled full of market good dragged behind him.

After her Birthright, Inga was more of a help. Her work slowly branching out into houses. And eventually the Sjefhjem. A lot of her growing done tidying up the queen's residence. Offering made one evening when she stopped to visit her grandmother at the temple. Brother already clamoring to join the sky squadron. Virgin Night paid for at a Red Moon house. Her evening walk home eventually escorted by the queen's escort when he had the time.

A night of good food and too much drink ending in an embarrassed disaster. Ashamed of herself, Inga turned in her notice and took up work in the healing springs. Clearing the air and tidying the caverns for the healers and tourists who flocked there. Romance put aside until she was cajoled into accepting it again. Shy of the shipman. Cautioned by Nan. She'd already lost her parents to the sky. No good would come of risking a man to it, not when her brother was already trying to run off into the horizon.

But Inga couldn't help herself. Blond curls and boyish charm doing its work. Dogged but gentle in his pursuit until she gave in whole heartedly. A good house to raise a family in. Nan invited to live with them though she refused. Brother helped into a squadron. A daughter just a year into their marriage. Curls like her father's. Smile like his too. But her eyes and freckles were her mother's.

Good years. Such good years. Inga was happy. Soothing and scolding in turn. Home until Eeva started schooling, then she went back to the springs for work. Extra marks stashed away for a rain day, or emergencies. They came too soon, and together. Days full of tear stained grief when Eero's ship was lost, and him with it. Rainy days that turned to hardship. Job lost as pregnancy stripped her of more clever craft.

Nan moved in to help. And Inga went back to beg work where they knew her. The old queen gone, but much of her staff still behind to recommend Inga to the new.
