Familiar: Pelton the Northern Dreaming Spider
It’s fairly simple for students to make things. A flick of the wrist, the proper pronunciation and voila! That’s how your average student does it, but not Cordelia. She is not only an excellent craftsman, preferring only to use magic to help make her inventions safe, but she is also, first and foremost, an inventor. Cordelia’s earned herself quite a reputation, working hard to fill orders from her fellow students for all sorts of random devices. She doesn’t even charge except for whatever she needs to complete her next project. This had made her popular with some merchants in Admiratio, but she might be expanding her business before she’s fully ready...
