Quirina's daughter and apprentice


House: Tytalus
Age: 10

Severina, while not unhealthy, did not take to physical activity as well as Quirina would have liked, and has become pale and thin from an early childhood spent indoors reading books. Whereas Quirina’s magic is focused narrowly on the human body, Severina’s focus is on living organisms in general (Corpus, Herbam, Animal), and magic that changes or destroys them (Muto, Perdo). She has a slightly disturbing fascination with change and death, which she sees as two sides of the same coin rather than as separate things. She is self-assured but quiet, rarely smiling even when around other children. Adults find her disturbing to be around, even compared to other Gifted children, and when meeting her gaze they become uncomfortably aware of their own mortality.

Things affected by her magic appear to decay: creatures look pale and sickly, objects look old and worn. (This only affects their appearance, and they return to normal when the magic is over.)
