If there were a spectrum upon which every living being were charted, good to evil, the impish Hobi would certainly not be anywhere near that spectrum. The devilish mage avoids conformity wherever possible. Also, no one truly knows if she is good or evil.
You meet her in the most unsuspecting of places—a bush. Well, you’re not in the bush. She is. You are walking toward a stable in town when Hobi jumps from the bush onto your shoulders. She begins muttering something nonsensical, and a small pile of twigs near you becomes engulfed in flames. You wrestle her off your back, though you yelp from the sharp tug of her pulling your hair out.
She is a misfit, dressed in rags and mismatched shoes. Her pink bow is rather nice though, you note. If you make her mad, she gives someone in your party a tail. As you continue your journey, at times you hear rustling. You turn around and think you see her out of the corner of your eye. You don’t, however, she keeps herself very well hidden.
Plot Device: Hobi has the mayor of the town you visit held hostage. She hasn’t done it with malcontent, rather she wanted to create a stir. Get on her good side and she’ll let in you on that secret. From there, you can choose: help the town and get a nice reward, or help Hobi keep him hidden and get a nice adventure. And maybe jail time.
Conversion: Hobi is pure mischief. In whichever setting you place her be sure that she does the most unexpected thing you can think of. If someone suspects her to do something unexpected, have her do what is expected. She is driven by a desire to show off, and deep down, she craves attention. She is small and impish. She is a mage but misfires her magic all the time.
