Special background benefit — learns from her mistakes.
Can apply Int instead of Wis to perception and survival if she has failed at that specific activity in the past. If the circumstances are nearly identical to ones she has failed in before, she rolls with advantage.
Kavacha’s Virtue (Blood soaked whisperplate) (dark red-gray and covered in arcane runes that sometimes let off a low crimson glow). Half plate armour that does not impose disadvantage on stealth checks, and 1 / expedition the wearer can spend a hit die when they kill a foe.
Powered by blood: when Rock drops for the second time in a short period of time, the armour flares to life, worsening her injuries (additional drop roll at same modifier) and restoring her health (stay at 1, and spend a HD). Rock noted that she cannot control this, and speculated that it might be possible to draw more power from it, but she has not had a chance to try it, because after it happened, she immediately dropped for a third time and stayed down.
Chain Bracer of Injury Reduction +2 on injury rolls. The bracer has wisps of abjuration magic that seems somehow linked to the gray hills.
Shadow Glaive of Quickness – +1 weapon in dim light, + prof to initiative rolls.

Minor Epiphany: immune to hobgoblins’ 2d6 bonus damage when it is applied via ranged attacks. (this only applies to the grey hills hobgoblins, if there are other people with the same ability elsewhere it does not apply to them).
Rock (given name Vaiana) is an islander from the SE islands on the new continent. She was a navy sailor for years, starting in the sea-devil wars. After her years at sea, she left the navy and traveled to Silanya.
Her scars tell the story of a life hard-won. She walks and strikes with steady, controlled motions. When she forgets herself, she moves with swift confidence, and seems surprised when she stumbles.
