Grog 3: Devorah Shapiro, the Rabbi's daughter
The only daughter of the Rabbi of Speyer, she grew up surrounded by books. her father always doted on her and noticing her interest in books and learning always catered to her learning. Knowing that she could never attend Rabbinic school as she would have wanted, he took it upon himself to teach her all that he could and giving her full access to all his books. he wanted to take her as Sofer but the community rebelled against such an untraditional choice. As the Rabbi ages, he realises that she must either marry (which she has shown little interest for) or at least leave to go and find herself a new home. Through an acquaintance, a secret Kabbalist, she was entrusted to the order of Hermes with the promise that she would be well treated and allowed to continue her learning in her new home (a Covenant). Spoiled by her father's attention, growing up with little contact with other children and well aware that she is more intelligent and better educated than almost everyone she ever interacted with, she has become somewhat difficult to get along with, barely suppressing her pride.
Note: I picked Speyer due to its historical Jewish community, just changing her default language from German to literally anything else will make her local. On the other hand, since she has the flaw outsider, she will be an outsider in any community.
Olive skinned and slightly built, she partially covers her long curly jet black hair with colourful shawls. Her fingers are often inkstained after copying manuscripts. She wears loose robes with space for quills and scrolls up her sleeves. She makes little effort on her personal appearance, often preferring to pull her hood up to hide her features, lest they give her away and lead to insults.
Why is she in the covenant?
Devorah is a woman in the wrong century, she is an academic at heart with no interest in household activities instead preferring to cultivate herself. As a Jew she knows she faces persecution outside of her community and simply does not want to run that risk.
She will be very useful to any Covenant as a latin scribe, and if she learns to teach as she grows older could be a good teacher for young (potential) apprentices.
Obviously a masculine version of Devorah would work, but he would have less reason to join a Covenant since he would not face the same hurdles...
