Sing a Song of Blackbirds
Merna Brimblebrisket is a female gnome of indeterminate age. Her hair is blue and her skin is ever so lightly tinted green. She favors bright, eccentric clothes made up of lots of colors and plenty of pockets. Merna is energetic, intelligent, creative, adventurous and perhaps just a little insane. She claims that her shop, Merna’s Shop of Wonders, is haunted by the ghost of her sister. According to Merna, her sister died in the fire that consumed on of her previous shops and has haunted Merna’s places of business ever since. Merna spends a great deal of time and energy conversing with her “sister,” though no-one has ever seen any evidence of the sister’s existance.
Merna has appraently done a fair bit of travelling in her time, and is often filled with tales of adventure from distant lands. She also has a tendency to show expertise in subjects she has no right knowing anything about. Where she gets her information is something of a mystery.
