Appearance
Isla does not look like the sort of woman who would be comfortable wielding a bone-saw. Or suturing lacerations. Or setting a break. There is a softness and delicacy about her that hides the steel of her resolve, and her cherubic features belie the steady hand and strong stomach honed by her occupation. While working she favours practical clothing – rolled sleeves, flat shoes, clinical colours, and those who first meet her may be mistaken in thinking her boyish in her tastes. She keeps her golden curls swept up and out of the way, and her pebble blue eyes show more evidence of sleepless nights than makeup.

Outside working hours, Isla transforms. Embracing bright colours and indulging in all of the expense and luxury afforded to a duchess, there is an ethereal, fae beauty about her. Make no doubt about it, however – no matter the hour or the occasion; if duty calls, Isla answers.

Personality
Soft-spoken, slow to anger and excellent under pressure, ‘unflappable’ is the word that springs to mind when thinking of Isla. She rarely swears or raises her voice, able to deliver instructions in high stress situations with a level head and quick reactions. Panicking costs lives, and she is in the business of saving them, thank you. It is a job that is regrettably messy sometimes, but Isla does not shy from gore – indeed, it takes a lot to make her lose her composure. Yes, it has made her something of a perfectionist, but in her line of work she doesn’t consider it a bad thing.

That being said, empathy isn’t lost on her. Isla cares personally for every life she holds in her hands and carries the guilt for each one she has lost – but when the time comes to make those difficult decisions, that compassion is a switch that she can flick off.

Infinitely curious, she loves to read and learn and has a remarkably silly side shown only to those she considers close friends. That’s probably because her humour leans towards the dark, though, and not many people appreciate surgery jokes.

History

The Lockwoods were a highly influential family in Northwind, renowned for their magical skill, medical knowledge and loyalty to the crown. Isla was born to Huxley and Eliza Lockwood, both originals blessed with the power of restoration magic. As their only child it was hardly surprising that Isla was poised to follow in her parents’ footsteps – they were healers to kings and queens, and their daughter would follow in that prestigious legacy. There was but one small snag. Isla showed not even a whisper of magical potential. They tested her twice, just to make sure… but nothing.

Some families might have been disappointed by this; some might have even treated her like an outcast. But the Lockwoods did not operate in such petty circles, and in place of magical knowledge Isla was given the best and brightest in terms of tutoring and access to resources. And she thrived on it. Devouring medical texts, fictions, encyclopaedias and anything else she could get her hands on, her keen mind drank in the knowledge. As soon as she was considered old enough and capable enough, she put it into practice too.

The issue with restoration magic was, of course, the toll it took on the caster. As the war intensified and Isla came of age, her parents began to wane. It was only natural; she had been taught as much. None of the Lockwood line lived to a ripe old age, not with a magical lineage like theirs.

She might have stayed to continue her parents’ work at the monarchy’s side, but ultimately Isla’s practical knowledge made her more useful in the war efforts. When the First Wave was stepping through the portal into Northaven, Isla was stitching wounds and carting the dead on the Northwind battlefields. She stayed there, perfecting her methods in field surgery and innovating new ways to patch injuries and buy time for those too far from an infirmary to last the journey without it. The Second Wave came and went, and she had taken two apprentices under her wing, teaching them all she knew to continue the more hands-on skills of medicine.

And when she was approached, personally, to join those who had stepped into the settlement… she almost declined, honestly. But with more chirurgeons on the field and with Northaven apparently in need of another healer… it just made sense.

Isla suddenly arrives in Caido!
