Elaboration

Characteristics

A Medicinal Caretaker's characteristics will vary in spite of their original characters, however guidance and wisdom is usually found in those who take pride and find elegance in their work. Despite the overall evaluation of their group or association, Medicinal Caretakers are those who typically stand out among their peers and companions, as they carry physical necessities in their knowledge and spiritual power in their recollections.

Skills

A Medicinal Caretaker's skills include, but are not limited to, spiritual guidance and knowledge, physical care taking of illnesses and wounds, illustrating valuable counsel and opinion, and providing depth to personality.

Capabilities

A Medicinal Caretaker should have the potential to offer essential intelligence and significant guidance. A Caretaker should also have the ability to retain herbal knowledge for future instances and know how to apply their expertise during times of need. In addition and conclusion, A Medicinal Caretaker will have the exceptional and exciting capability to communicate with their ancestors or deities.

Herb Care

If an herbal portion becomes wet, place it in the sun to dry. This being said, the herb should only be given time to dry off, not dry out. If the plant becomes dried out, it may also be zapped of its use.

Leave enough of a plant during collection so it can continue to spread by reproduction and grow.

As obvious as it is, I will still state it kindly: gather new herbs when your stock gets low in case of emergency.

Lastly, throw out herbs that have lost their medicinal properties and values, as they will take up space.
