Tactics
Before Combat She readies her crossbow and looks for a defensible position, preferring high ground and deadfalls or other terrain that serves as a barricade. If necessary, she uses her musk to attract predators to the site of an ambush.
During Combat She prefers to stay at range and force enemies to approach her, preferably over treacherous ground. Once her enemies close in, she switches to her scimitar and first tries to eliminate anyone she sees casting spells.
Morale She is brave but not foolhardy. She tries to flee if greatly outnumbered or obviously outmatched. She uses her knowledge of the jungle to mislead pursuers and hide herself. If there seems to be no other option, she may try to surrender but is more likely to fight to the death than allow herself to be executed by bloodthirsty enemies.
