For years Emma has been the clearheaded rock to Robert’s less grounded reality. The daughter of two house workers, her own skills and her marriage to Robert (who was on track to become the Manor’s steward) quickly elevated her to a head of household position. With how little time the manor’s Earl came around, the couple were almost lord and lady themselves, a position which Emma very much appreciated and kept Robert from leaving in pursuit of his dreams of magic.

That steady nature was shaken after a fateful encounter with an enchantress (or perhaps fairy) who cursed Emma’s normally deft hands to remain forever unsteady. Try as she might over the next several months, she could find neither relief nor way to break the curse. When Robert heard of the impending covenant expedition, he suggested that the Magi might have the ability to break the curse. Reluctantly she agreed and seeks to make herself valuable enough that the magi would take the time to remove her curse.
