Zinnia Elanora Barrasten

Endlessly optimistic, always helpful, and very accident prone. What do you mean that's a dangerous combination for a student wizard?

Zinnia is the youngest daughter of the Barrastens, a well-to-do gnome family in Zilargo. The Barrastens have been proud supporters and employees of the Library for generations, and Zinnia is eager to join in her family’s tradition.

She is in her first year of studies at the Library as a young wizard. She works part time as a page in the reserved research wing of the vast Library, helping to catalog and archive the newest research in exciting topics such as blink dog ecology. At least she did up until the Expedition.

When her Aunt Bev, or Beverlea Ginasa Barrasten to be precise, the renowned Tenured Professor in Arcane Studies and Theoretical Thaumaturgy and Chair of Indefinite Studies of Cultural Relativism in Relation to Artifice was invited to join the prestigious expedition, Zinnia was thrilled to learn that she had been chosen as the first participant in a new program at the Library: Cooperative Distance Practical Education.
