Fears/Worries: though she's at home underground as well as in open lands, any rocks that look like they're teetering will send her into a light catatonia. A healer could help her, if they ever see this happening.
Special Strange Info: her soul name came at a time when she was suffering a severe mental breakdown. Her mother and brother had both been killed in a rockslide, and her sister vanished around the same time - suspitions arose that she caused the rockslide, and Wellspring believes it to be true, though why her sister would have purposefully caused their deaths is beyond anyone's ken.

Basic Personality: busy, but consistant. She is quiet most of the time, but knows that her magic allows her a bit of luxury as well as a high status. Finding water in the desert, even with magic, isn't easy - and sometimes the water isn't even fit to drink. She makes every attempt to purify things before handing them off.
How they feel about
: they hardly come to the true desert, but they're everywhere else... it's a good thing we know how to trade.
Elves -- herders: goats and sheep are awesome, they keep everyone fed and clothed.
Elves -- magic users: she enjoys a position of power, but knows perfectly well there may come others with a better one.
Elves -- bond-riders: they're good to have around, but those Humans have 'dogs' that are better trained than some bond-beasts...
Trolls, etc: they're smelly, horrible things, swipe their metals and leave no footprints- they're not worth the trouble.
Bond Animal Info if any: a male coyote named Frisk, aged and about on his last legs but he's still playful if gimpy.

** She is among the Dune Tribe, split off from main after events leading to the others finding Bald Mountain; had wandered with her troupe until finding these others in the plains and scrubland
