    Today's Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Kickstarter update reveals another one of the game's companions. Ember is a child-like elven witch who lives in the streets of Kenabres as a beggar. She's a good person even though the inquisitors tried to burn her and her father at the stake.

    Sometimes hope is the only thing that keeps crusaders going on the battlefield. But what if there is no hope at all? You may ask Ember, who sees life and death as it is, in all its fickleness and terrifying beauty. Well, you may ask, but the answer would be as mysterious as the young witch herself.

    Some say that Ember is just a mad beggar, some see her as a saint, some call her “Lucky Seven” because of her missing fingers, but Ember sees herself as a simple girl, no different from any other. And yet... this fragile, barefooted elven witch, wearing rags that scarcely cover her hideously burned skin, is one of the toughest crusaders Mendev has ever seen.

    Ember was born in Kyonin the same year the Worldwound was opened. For many years, her father spoke passionately about joining the crusade, believing it a noble deed and a duty to be shared by all. One fateful day, he took Ember and traveled straight to Kenabres, but instead of being welcomed with open arms into the crusade’s ranks, the strange elves were taken for demons' servants. The inquisitors were alerted and tried to burn father and daughter at the stake. A paladin rescued Ember from the flames, but her skin and her mind have never been the same since. She has forever remained a child, innocent but wise. All these years she has lived the life of a beggar on the streets of Kenabres with her crow familiar, Soot.

    Ember can’t even remember her real name, but meeting you would restore her sense of purpose: finally, after all this time, she can join the crusade.

    Ember is the epitome of kindness and compassion. She sees the world as a good place where even though people sometimes do bad things, they can be redeemed and healed. She firmly believes that even demon lords can change their ways. Ember is kind to everyone she meets, though often brutally honest. She accepts snide remarks and words of pity with equal cheer, and sees a silver lining even in clouds that rain blood. However, Ember is not delusional. For her, the crusades are hopeless, so people should learn how to stand strong without hope. But in battle, Ember offers healing and blessings, surely bringing hope to her companions even in the darkest moments.
    Eight companions left to go. I expect some of the others will also belong to the new classes introduced in Wrath of the Righteous.

    So that means we can have a crow as familiar?

    This actually sounds interesting. Tackling religion is way to rare in RPG, was IMO the reason why Valeria was the best waifu in PKM and also the only redeeming value of DA2. Well, unless they make her an obnoxious do-gooder like Octavia.
