As promised, here's the latest character sketch in the story development. She's one of the bad guys/girls in this world. Her name is Maydusa and she's over 200 years old (excuse the different spelling on the image title as it makes it easier for folks to search the picture). She's kept herself in this child form by using the exotic Aether rig on her head to sap the Aether (life force) of man or beast she can manage to lure on to her estate. She needs a lot of life force to remain a child and you see her in the image not fully regenerated. The way the rig works leaves the poor victim literally petrified as you can see on the broken cat in the image.
