Through my healing, mice will thrive.
Tyme grew up a very curious Fawnfur with 2 Archivist parents, Juniperarus (“Juni”, whitefur) and Pepper (blackfur). Her bedtime stories were of brave mice healing the fighters of the weasels or helping with the establishment of Lockhaven. She loved exploring the fields and learning the names and uses of herbs, especially those that helped people live better, thinking of those past heroes in Lockhaven.
