CHILDHOOD AND FAMILY
Dorothy’s mother was a witch but her father was a mortal, so when she showed no active power at a young age her parents assumed she was not of Power. They gave her no judgment nor criticism for this, however, and she was raised to be comfortable with who she is and follow her heart.
Her mother noticed early on that Dorothy was drawn to those who were sick or injured, always bringing home wounded animals or approaching those in wheelchairs or with crutches when they were out. She also quickly observed the response most gave to Dorothy’s care, even at a young age people with illnesses or pains claimed they felt physically better for the little girls contact.
It soon became apparent that Dorothy was a Healer and that she truly loved the work she could do with her Power. Her parents encouraged her to focus more on her Power than any education or classical studies. She was taken out of school and home educated where the focus was put on how to help injured people and how to enhance her power.
Dorothy is regularly referred to as a powerful healer, and indeed it is a reputation well earned.
Because of her upbringing, Dorothy’s entire focus was always on her power and what work she could do with it. When she met the equally dedicated Opal, she discovered how much she could accomplish if she became part of a coven and worked with others. She quickly became passionate about the different ways her power could be used in tangent with the powers of others.
