Bio

Daisy worked in the library of Miskatonic University, overseen by the noted scholar Henry Armitage. She quickly became an expert on the school's collection of strange and occult texts, mastering the obscure subject matter and archaic languages. Through her studies, she came to believe that humanity was facing an impending threat. Armitage believes in her conclusions and has sent her to Istanbul to continue her investigation. It is their hope to discover some means of rescuing humanity from this inevitable doom.

Defeated Encounters

Loss of Health

Daisy is pleased when you come to visit. She tells you to help yourself to her book collection and other gear. Gain all of her possessions. She says there was one book brought to her after she lost her sight, but she'll need your help to explain its content (Lore). If you pass, the text and its usage are clear to you; gain 1 Tome Artifact. If you fail, it's hard to read her expression under the bandages, but you think she's giving in to despair. Whether you pass or not, discard her Investigator token.

Loss of Sanity

When you find Daisy, it takes a while to sift through the clutter and shredded books to find her belongings. Gain all of her possessions. She's pinned torn pages from newspapers, pulp magazines, and menus all across her walls, and you think you can persuade her to talk about her researches (Influence). If you pass, she tells you of the forbidden tomes she's read; retreat Doom by 1. If you fail, she looks at you suspiciously and makes notes in her books. Whether you pass or not, discard her Investigator token.

Team Role

With her starting spells and high Lore skill, Daisy is a great character to gain Clues, which can make her useful in dealing with Rumors. Because her Observation is low, it is wise to train that up if you plan on using her skill to gain unique Tomes.

Naturally, Daisy is a great character to use Tomes with, as she gets a third action every round, provided she is using a Ritual or Tome.

Daisy can also use spells to great effect once she gets some.
