A hedge wizard with a vacant expression and twigs in his hair, Herrick emerged from the forests after the death of his master to seek entrance to the Order of Hermes. He is highly skilled in the spheres of animals and nature, but ill at ease with the trappings of civilisation. Herrick is both a humble and eager student, although he has a frequent habit of questioning the Order and its traditions. Herrick has been serving Hastus Veriditius as a lab assistant in exchange for access to the covenants library, although he tries to stay occupied with the theoretical side of lab work and as far away as possible from the heat and smoke of the forge. He speaks in a low, gravelly voice and only rarely makes eye contact.
