**History**:
Pepper was raised in an orphanage at Squirrel's End. At an early age she showed an aptitude for magic and was enrolled in the Hippiah school of magic. While she excelled at magic she also excelled at driving her instructors batty with various traps, potions, and other hijinks. When her instructors insisted she make vegetables grow and taste goood she would instead make them iridescent and taste like soap.
Pepper was raised in an orphanage at Squirrel's End. At an early age she showed an aptitude for magic and was enrolled in the Hippiah school of magic. While she excelled at magic she also excelled at driving her instructors batty with various traps, potions, and other hijinks. When her instructors insisted she make flowers grow she had a hard time concentrating on her spells to make them grow. For Pepper, it was literally like watching grass grow.
When the witches of Chaosah visited the Hippiah school to look for a potential student Pepper's instructors immediately offered up her name. This suited Pepper just fine because while she loved her home she felt the only thing that would grow there would be everything but her. Little did she realize that her instructors were only too happy to be rid of her so they could **a)** teach in peace and **b)** get rid of the witches of Chaosah, who had a reputation of bringing the ire of Ah with them. It only took a little prodding for the villagers to help get Pepper a house in the forest of Squirrel's End since the alternative would be for her to live in the village proper.
In once instance Pepper was so frustrated with her classmates and teacher making fun of her inability to grow flowers that she let off a blast of Rea in frustration. This drew the attention of the remaining Chaosah witches who were in search of their new heir. Pepper was reluctant to go with the Chaosah Witches but she realized the Hippiah school was an imperfect fit. Her Hippiah instructors felt they had little choice but to let Pepper go as Pepper was not performing well as a Hippiah witch. They also did not want the Chaosah Witches around since the Chaosah witches had a reputation of bringing the ire of Ah with them. Since Pepper had very little money and no living relatives it only took a little prodding for the villagers to help erect Pepper a house in the forest of Squirrel's End. The alternative, they feared, would be for her to live in the village proper.
Being a witch of Chaosah is not particularly lucrative, and several times Pepper has not had enough Ko to afford even modest ingredients for her potions. It wasn't until the recent potion challenge (ep3) that Pepper had any kind of money, and had to augment her broom with additional potions and Rea for flight (Komonan wood brooms require much less Rea to fly, and fetch a hefty price). Even with her considerable skill there have been a few times where she's had to make in-flight adjustments.

## Hippiah :
Hippiah is at the middle-top of the triangle, and it's the central sub-school of 'Evolutions'. It's the house of **plants, creatures, insects** (yes, even mosquitoes) and **all living things**. Hippiah is one of the most highly regarded schools of Evolution magic, as it is the school most willing to share its knowledge. Hippiah documents farming, gardening and fertility in great depth, serving as a guide for most of the farmers of Hereva. During the great crisis the school realized it could not conscientiously keep its secrets and began spreading its knowledge throughout Hereva. While farmers know a bit of Hippiah magic the difference between a Hippiah adept and a mere practitioner is staggering. Few outside the Hippiah schools have seen the full extent of Hippiah magic, though there are stories of vegetables and grain that are so tasty as to make even the schools of Magmah weep with joy. Because it is so ubiquitous Hippiah is considered one of the more popular secondary magical choices.
### Hippiah is:
* "... not a magic for making weedkillers" (ep18)
## Ah :
Ah is at the top-left of the triangle, and it's the last sub-school of 'Evolutions'. It's the house of the **after-life, ghosts, souls, and is the open door to parallel universes**. Because Ah deals with spirits and other planes of existence its secrets are carefully guarded. Many myths and legends about Ah have arisen because of such secrecy, and the silence does little to disprove such wild conjecture. Some say that the spirit world might someday unravel the fabric of Hereva itself, or that they guard the secrets to eternal life, while others say the reason Ah is practiced in secret is because the spirits are selective with whom they communicate and are easily angered with banal questions about future events. Whatever the truth it is easier to find rumors of Ah than actual written documentation as Ah strictly prohibits documenting their practices, preferring instead to pass them on through oral traditions to trusted adepts. Adherents of Ah choose their members carefully (some say the spirits themselves select who shall learn the ways of Ah), and there are no accounts of outsiders learning Ah. Practitioners of Ah travel in small nomadic bands, preferring solitude over any company. Perhaps the spirits are always guiding, talking, and listening so the followers of Ah are never truly alone. There are many adepts of Ah, each wandering the lands of Hereva, and it is considered good fortune to see an adept of Ah. Rarely do they stay for long, guided by invisible winds in unknowable directions.
