Queen of the Summer Court
Minerva is a compact, athletic woman with pointed ears and many, many fine scars, mostly on her arms and torso. Her Mantle is a field of dry heat and distant thunder, with occasional heat ripples rising from her skin. The heat intensifies when she invokes a Contract, smelling of hot metal. She always dresses practically, often in tactical gear.
In the Hedge: Within 500 feet of Minerva, the Hedge grows hot and dry, the plant life turning yellow and brown and brittle. Travelers often smell whiffs of hot metal, and hear drums and fifes playing in the distance. Lasts 1 Scene/Hour (+ 3 to track her).
When Minerva rules as Queen, this becomes the default state of the Hedge within the freehold’s territory, only superseded by beings of powerful Wyrd.
