PapayaBlossomThe Practices and Expertises of the Medica

The distinct symbol of the Medica is a papaya blossom. Its leaves are commonly used in the discipline’s treatments for wounds, but the symmetrical shape of the papaya blossom best describes the tools that healers have to fight illness and injury. Known as the Knowledge of the Blossom, each petal represents a tool that a healer may utilize to aid in their art.

The Five Petals of the Papaya Blossom

  1. The Mind: The most important tool a healer has, The Mind should be razor-honed to quickly identify a patient’s symptoms and devise the best treatment for them.

  2. The Needle: The Needle threads through flesh as easily as it does cloth. When magic is unavailable to seal a grievous wound, needle and catgut is what a healer should reach for.

  3. The Herb: From sour stomachs to poison’s panacea, The Herb waits to be plucked and prepared for various medicines to cure what ails a patient.

  4. The Stone: Quartz, jade, and obsidian are some of the multitude of minerals recovered from the earth that can be utilized for healing. The Stone is used to center the mind and ground energy when a patient’s spirit has been undermined.

  5. The Spark: Those gifted with The Spark of magic can seal a wound and cleanse corruption. When the situation is dire, sometimes magic is the only alternative between life and death.

In this violent and dangerous land, it is imperative that a healer is aware of all the methods available to them. The Head Healer’s role is to ensure that the Medica members are well versed in the Knowledge of the Blossom and to sharpen their skills through training, classes, and tests.
