Librarians are subversive. You think they're just sitting there at the desk, all quiet and everything. They're plotting the revolution. I wouldn’t mess with them.
Purple Dusk to Green Queen
· · ·
Proprietor and Head Librarian of Onn Public Library
· · ·
Born disabled to a nomadic people, Zadi’s parents took her to Onn to raise her in relative safety. Since she could not travel, they fed her curiosity with stories and books. Her collection grew and grew, until a wealthy benefactor gave her startup money for a real library. Now Zadi spends her days behind the service desk in her library, trying to show people how to love reading as much as she does.

· Medical Info ·
Modernly, Zadi would be diagnosed with Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy. In her case, oxygen deprivation during birth resulted in brain damage, causing some of her muscles to be intensely chronically tight, making movement difficult or impossible. Zadi’s legs and hips are the most affected, while her hands are clumsy but semi-functional. She also has frequent muscle spasms, scoliosis, and arthritis - a by-product of being chronically tense.

Because the muscles in her face and mouth are also affected, Zadi has a minor speech impediment. For an idea of her speech patterns, watch this video on 0.75% speed.

a note about language: modernly, "cripple" is a slur. I use it here in the context of a pre-disability rights culture.
