The Soothsayer appears to be wearing the full Warlock Iron Banner armor set, keeping in line with the appearance of the Guardian who has heavily invested themselves to the Iron Banner before her disappearance.
Unnaturally, the Soothsayer speaks in one or multiple voices that speak all at once in a distorted tone making it troubling on what is being said. Common expressions of the Soothsayer are the ability to remain perfectly calm and collected in all situations even under the threat of death. Willingly, she confides and allies herself with individuals who come to her for knowledge (Marsan for example), for an unknown duration. When revealing a foreshadowing event to a certain individual, she will explain in perfect detail either giving the possibility of a fortunate or undesirable outcome dependent on the request. As a strong believer of fate, the Soothsayer leaves the status of the person who came to her or called, entirely his or her choice.
