Hilniflit Froth, like all gnomes, has her obsessions. Her first obsession is with fire. She has focused obsessively on the study of fire and flames to the point that her skin is constantly covered in soot from head to toe. She is an accomplished alchemist who is sought after for her skills in demolition and controlled burns. When she is not working or adventuring, she can be found in remote locations looking for creative outlets to use her flames. When a fire surprises her and does something unexpected, she finds it hilarious and will then chart its progression in detail, taking copious notes filled with insightful limericks and elaborate drawings.
Hilniflit takes pride in her work with flame and will leave her invisible arcane mark on every burn, which makes her reputation notorious among those that can see them. This often gets her in trouble with local authorities for cases of arson in cities and towns, but the marks serve as a kind of evidence of their own and she has some allies that will come to vouch for her by pointing out that she’s a gnome and if she burned something, she would mark it and if there is no mark, she couldn’t have caused the fire.
Hilniflit’s familiar, Sparky, is a black toad with subtle red spikes that she talks to constantly as he rides on her shoulder. If Hilniflit needs to move quickly, Sparky will move into her components pouch with a simple command and serve as her assistant, peeking from the bag and serving as a second set of eyes. Hilniflit will sometimes send Sparky on scouting missions or into narrow places on a demolition job and Sparky will always complain and protest loudly.
Hilniflit, aside from her natural gnomish racial aversions, also despises the undead and necromancy. She only thinks of fire as destructive in the service of destroying them. She otherwise thinks of fire as life-giving or a profound creative gesture (so slaying any other enemies with her flames is really just a delightful form of self-expression).
