Biography

It's a modern world! And modern witches don't step up shop in hidden cabins, deep in the woods, dispensing help and advice only to those stumble onto them. Modern witches don't hide - they don't have to: modern witches are proactive; full members of society, even! Also, they kind of have to do things like go to school (it's the law!), and that's a little inconvenient when you're miles outside of Town…

Blair is a modern witch! She comes from a witching family. She lives a normal (if magical) life. She helps people! She actually likes helping people: making friends, solving problems, putting in the elbow grease and maybe brewing up a potion if that's what it takes.

In fact, that's what got her where she is now. A little while ago, she helped a Devil. Or, well, a Devil in training. She looked kind of down; kind of frustrated. Blair tried to cheer her up. Blair may have sold her soul in the process (she looked like she needed to put a 'win' in today's column…). On the plus side, the Devil seems like a nice enough girl, and Blair managed to wish for her scion's magical mojo in the process (all the better to help even more effectively than she already does!).

Can't argue with that kind of logic.
