Sane, on the other hand, grows tall and thin, and spends a large portion of her day learning the secrets of arcane magic from Salie Sabond. Sane remains quiet, but grows ever more observant and intelligent, gaining a self-assurance and Salie's mannerisms. The half-elf girl also gains Salie's distaste for religion, refusing to follow any gods in particular, opting for what she believes to be her own strength. Sane stays in Salie's manor for most of her time, occasionally leaving to visit with Alynn at the cabin. Sane's magical prowess grows exponentially under Salie's apprenticeship, and soon she is teleporting and defending herself with ease.
