Background: Cecilia was born into a decent family, her father was a merchant and they lived comfortably. Her mother died in childbirth, and was a witch in the old religion. Cecilia's father knew nothing of her mother's habits, and took to hiding any remnants until Cecilia came of age to know about her mother. He remarried and with his wife they had a daughter, giving Cecilia a half sister.
When Cecilia turned 7 she was already showing magical tendencies so her father took the chance to try to understand his daughter and help her use her gifts for good. Cecilia was a rather mischievous child, always getting into trouble and causing chaos, whether it was just child's play or using magic.
At 11, Cecilia's father opened a tavern, and she helped alongside him. She tended to coerce sensitive information out of the travelers without realizing and recounted it to her father, who sold it to the local guardsmen. A bad bit of information came back at them, and while Cecilia was out gathering herbs, the tavern was ransacked and her father killed. Her Step-mother left Cecilia and her half-sister shortly after draining their savings and leaving them to their own devices(namely their death).
At 17, Cecilia had grown into a fine young women, and had a fair grasp of magic and knew how to use it very well. She ran the tavern alongside her half-sister, carefully collecting information and selling it, as well as secretly doing fortune telling.
Recently a potion gone awry has left Cecilia's half-sister comatose and she searches for a cure or an escape from her life.
Other: Cecilia tends to have night-terrors and sleep paralysis and therefore tends to not sleep very often or for long periods of time and wanders a lot.
