She is also the wife of Lord Suitov and, because of the workings of heritable titles, the mother of another Lord Suitov. Her birth surname is Waldbach. Her parents are Alrige and Rike (Henrike) Waldbach of Hounstone.
Like other witches, Adalfrid's working style is improvised and intuitive. Her broad area of interest is the natural world and ecology. She's a raging hippie and keen on animals. Like all Shaded magicians of her time, her theories are a huge part superstition and magical thinking .
Adalfrid and her husband have two children, Rige (male) and Betel (female). She is given to following the latest trendy theories concerning child-rearing and education. Rige grows up a dragannerie-obsessed pacifist. Betel, with her father and brother around her, is more what you'd expect from a warlord's child. Both, however, are kind to animals.
