Brief Description:

Before you stands a not very imposing girl standing 5'5" with frizzy brown hair and pale skin. She hasn't seen sunlight in far too long. She's usually seen with a book in hand, and a slight chip on her shoulder. Almost always she wears long sleeves, covering up a pair of black tattoo-like marks on each hand. The one on her left is a coiling set of Hebrew prayers, specifically the prayer of Tefilin which the tattoo serves as a permanent form of. On her right is a complex geometric fractal that comes together on the back of her hand with the Kabbalah symbol of the Tree of Life.

Personality-wise, Mirriam is guarded. She's lead a harsh life and her newfound magic hasn't changed her outlook much. There's a girl under there that just wants to make friends, but she needs some help bringing her out.
