Also known as "The Illuminated One."
Myna is a petite human with mousy brown hair and grey eyes. Though she is approximately 40 years old, she tries to prolong her age through enchantments and relaxation techniques. She tends to wear simple, loose robes with no particular design or color.
Myna grew up in a large family, and was the youngest of five brothers and three sisters. Myna was born during a time when her siblings were already fairly old thus providing a large age gap to the next youngest child. Though her family did treat her like the baby of the family, she was also ignored and left to her own devices. Myna learned to be her own best friend and she discovered at an early age that she had a knack at enchanting items around her to keep her company. Her parents had no qualms sending her off to the big city, Highmark, to become a wizard’s apprentice.
Myna’s social skills were still deeply underdeveloped when she was an apprentice. However the wizard that she worked for didn’t seem to have an issue with this, nor did he want to change that aspect of her. Her sense of self and that of others were hopeless by now, and her ability to fit into society was at a loss. When the wizard passed away, Myna inherited his tower and belongings and continued on her merry way in life.
Today, Myna lives alone in her master’s tower on the edge of Highmark City. She has never taken on an apprentice nor does she share her knowledge with others.
As an enchantress, she sells minor magical objects to keep food on her table. Myna is not a powerful magic user, but her lack of common sense when using the arts has made others cautious around her.
In addition to the Picnic Basket of Confinement, Myna’s also significant claims to fame are:
- Dawn’s Rain Street Sign Myna’s penchant to be on her own when she can has caused her to play havoc with the local street sign. She has it enchanted to turn into a different street name a few hours a day. The city guards got tired of changing the sign and decided it was best not to give Myna any trouble. Some of her neighbors are somewhat irritated with her.
- 12 Animal Eyes of Lore One of Myna’s great accomplishments (or so she thought) was to gain knowledge of rare beasts by preserving their eyeballs and enchanting them to understand her questions. Unfortunately, she didn’t have the foresight to give them a way of communicating back. While they understand Myna’s questions, their ability to respond back doesn’t go beyond rolling around the table, thus making the game of 20 questions closer to 2000 questions.
- Obie Myna, also known as the Illuminated One, received her "special" title from the strange ball of light that hovers around her shoulder. Myna had decided she needed a light enchantment to make it generally easier for her to get around her tower and walk the streets of Highmark after dusk. Though her floating orb of light dims during the day, it still follows her like a lost puppy. The locals have called the orb "Obie."
Myna is kooky and somewhat eccentric. She will enchant things to suit her desires and needs for the moment, but she will not use foresight nor think about the consequences of her enchantments.
If players get into a conversation with Myna, she will deliberately act bored or busy to avoid being there for much longer. She may even enchant an item and give it to the players to get them to go away.
