During Combat The cleric casts spiritual weapon, then fights with her warhammer. If her allies prefer her to focus on healing, she casts sanctuary on herself, and shield other on an ally, and converts other prepared spells to healing spells.

DESCRIPTION

She is a dwarf priestess and a skilled worker of metal. She bore a strong son and a healthy daughter for her husband (who sadly vanished in the mountains more than a decade past). She works her forge clad in full armor despite the heat of her smithy, though the worst is mitigated by endure elements. She is a trusted adviser in her community, and often acts as an envoy.

With her children grown and her home empty, she looks to the outside world to keep her spirits high. She is likely to help friendly people with tasks, including crafting magic items, providing extra healing on dangerous missions, facilitating negotiations for those unskilled at diplomacy, or guiding visitors to and from locations near her home city. She has a mothering personality and enjoys looking after young or free-spirited dwarves, gnomes, and halflings.
