Traits

Darkvision (to 60 ft).

Fey Ancestry. You have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put you to sleep.

Trance. Elves don’t need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. While meditating, you can dream after a fashion: such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.

Ritual Casting. Raevori cannot cast ritual spells. Her magic is too pure for that ridiculous mumbo-jumbo.

Arcane Insight. Raevori has a natural sense for magic. She can spend an action to see with detect magic for the following round. She can use this ability a total of INT mod rounds a day.

Arcane Recovery. Once per day when you finish a short rest, you can choose expended spell slots to recover. The spell slots can have a combined level equal to or less than half your wizard level (rounded up), and none of the slots can be 6th level or higher.

Arcane Tradition: Raevori.
True Savant.
You have disadvantage on arcana checks to learn a spell from another wizard’s spellbook (and no modification on the roll is possible). However, your brilliance is so unique that once an expedition you may roll Int (again, no modifiers possible) against DC20 to discover a new spell, which you can copy into your spellbook for half cost.
Raevori’s Way of the Open Spellbook.
Raevori trained herself to be an intelligence based monk, with no help from the wis-based wood elven monks who raised her. When Grandmother Dryad unlocked her access to her mother’s magic, that trained was transmuted into a complementary spellcasting tradition. You get your Intelligence bonus to AC, and +5 feet to your movement speed. In addition, your HD are d8, not d6. In addition, your get proficiency on Dexterity saves but lose it for Wis saves.

Background Feature: Contact. Raevori has a steady supplier for her maresh addiction, gleaned from her criminal background.

Backstory Tradeoff: Maresh Addiction. Raevori is addicted to maresh (a smoked substance like nicotine but stronger), which gives her disadvantage on Persuasion and Intimidation checks, but lets her reroll an Int check once a day. Her addiction also costs her 1 HD. Her HD are reduced by an additional 1 (2 total from this) on any expedition where she used the maresh reroll ability to do research the previous week.

Backstory Benefit: Bona Fide Genius
Raevori gets +1 research point / week spent doing research.

Genius’s Discipline
Upon reaching 4th level, Raevori got +1 Int, +1 Dex.

Living Arcane Gem
As a reward for slaying the evil hivemind in expedition 16, the mushrooms of 3.11 implanted a crystal seed on Raevori’s breastbone that has blossomed into a orange gem glowing with arcane might. This gem can automatically hold the concentration for any spell that Raevori casts (cannot lose concentration from any effect, and the spell doesn’t stop when she becomes unconscious), and it grants her level / 2 rounded down (currently 2) sorcery points, which can be spent on recovering spells as normal, or as metamagic, appling the Subtle affect (for 1 point, spell does not require somatic or verbal components). She also learned Empower (normal sorcerer rules). Unlike sorcerers, Raevori regains 1 sorcery point every short rest. She might learn a third at 7th level.
DRAWBACK: Increased pain sensitivity. The handful of skin-tone coloured mushroom tendrils growing out from the gem have affected Raevori’s nervous system, increasing her sensitivity to pain. She gets -2 on all temporary injury rolls (even though they appear only as bad as the unmodified roll), and has disadvantage on all saves to persist doing something that is painful, like long distance running.

Pack Tactics Against Aberrations
Raevori has pack tactics against aberrations with Beauregard, Rock, Lucens, Valerian, and Tabby. If any of them is adjacent to an aberration, she has advantage on attacks against it. If she is adjacent to an aberration, they have advantage on attacks against it. Gained on expedition 21.

A Nose for Magic
Raevori was granted a limited ability to smell magic by the wolf spirit of the Grey Hills. She can’t discern school, but with a successful perception check she can determine approximate strength and direction. She can use this to try to track magical creatures or effects, even though she isn’t trained in survival. Gained on expedition 28.

Major Magic Item: Left Chain of the Chainlord
Raevori bound the left chain of the chain lord that slew her mother to her, heating it in her mother’s funeral pyre as a final collaboration between mother and daughter.
It gives her four benefits at the moment:
Chained Spellcasting
She can be able to apply a combat superiority ability related to movement to the targets of her spells (trip, push, menace, disarm, distract, all as battlemaster). She can do this 4x / short rest +1 at 7, 10, 15, 18
Step Into My Web
Can cast web 1/day.
Empowered Strikes
Raevori can cast touch spells at 10 foot range, dealing an extra d6 points of force damage when she does so (also applies to ranged spells at 10 ft range). Ranged spells cast through the chain count as melee attacks.
The Invisible Lash
She can use a magical reaction to trip a target attempting to close with her as an AOO
Leshanna’s Oversight
1/expedition, can cast counter spell. This doesn’t use your reaction, and can be used even if you’ve already used your reaction.

Blood Magic Practitioner
Raevori can spend 1d4+1 permanent HP to cast any spell she knows without using a spell slot as if she was casting it with a 4th level spell slot.

Action: I may use the familiar’s senses if I am within 100 feet of it. I am blind and deaf if I do this.
Action: I may temporarily dismiss my familiar to a pocket dimension (at any range), where it will await my summons. Another action will summon it to within 30 ft. of me.
A familiar can’t attack, but rolls its own initiative and takes its own turn.
A familiar can deliver a spell with a range of touch that I cast as if it had cast the spell if it is within 100 ft of me as I cast. This uses the familiar’s reaction. If the spell requires an attack roll, use my attack modifier.
