Thirty Mages for every kind of magical world out there.
Corina Archerus is a researcher and a wizard. She is also completely blind.

She’s very smart so you should usually listen to what she says.She is mainly a specilist in the element of water and a little in the element of air.She takes the ring of fire so she can use the element that she doesn’t know much about as an advantage to learn more about it. She uses a quarter staff as her weapon and she only wears a light robe.
