Although you won’t meet her for a while, Dorothea lives in the mountains of Ohio with her extended family. Her family is notoriously long lived, and granny Dot has been hoping she might live long enough to see magic return to her world. She comes from a long line of women who have held onto the old ways, even as the world around them forgot those ways ever existed. The return of magic has made Granny Dot and her kin more powerful than ever, but even through the bleak times they were far from helpless. Their family has practiced dark rituals for generations, even before they came across the ocean and settled in the remote part of the mountains they call home. Flesh and blood sustained her kin while they waited for real power, but power comes in many forms. Granny had a hunger before the magic returned, and now that it has, rather than sating that hunger with the power she now wields, she wants even more. Her cravings may even be worse than her kin can abide.
