Clove was raised on the lore of the Shrine of Zemail. From a young age, she dreamed of seeing the shrine and devoted her efforts to seeking it out. She trained under various druids in her tribe and conversed with the soldiers of Alvar to learn all she could about the Cloying Forest and know where to find the shrine. When she became of age by Alvar standards, she was accepted as a scout in their army. They were more than willing to grant her request to serve in the unpopular Midgeland outpost garrison. She was closer to the shrine than she’d ever been, now to get assigned to an exploration unit.
Clove worked hard in the garrison and was soon a respected scout sent into the Cloying Forest as often as rotations would allow. She grew quickly and searched for signs from the lore that she might be nearing her goal as she scouted. Eventually, she felt she was so close that she could take it no longer. She left the garrison without approval and rode into the forest, searching for the shrine at all costs, regardless of whether or not she had allies. Zemail had called upon her. She had to go. She was the priestess for the Defender and Huntress of the Wood.

Clove is powerful when in the forest. Her damage output might not be amazing, with only weak magic and not much weapon ability, her ability to control plants and cause them to grow rapidly makes her very dangerous if she has plants nearby. Add to this her ability to receive knowledge from nature and her forest deity, and she is very hard to surprise.
She’d be a valuable scout in any party, but her ability to bring the blessings of her goddess and turn the local plants into her soldiers make her valuable in combat and puzzle situations. Her abilities in nature give her a good chance of finding the shrine.
