I was literally born into Alchemy. My father was a practicing alchemist, who ran an apothecary in a long deserted wizard village. The basic idea of Alchemy, and the feeling of healing the sick, is what dragged me through the years of working in that old, smelly shop.
When I wasn't hiding in the pantry, reading, I spent my days as a child brewing tonics and solutions to heal those plagued with Scrofungulus, Spattergroit, and Mumblemumps. Though tiring, I didn't dare stop my practice. And here I am today, hoping to educate the next generation of Alchemists and Healers. Through these pages, the knowledge of my father and alchemists from years past will live on forever.
