Short and skinny for her age, with a face her mother never once said was pretty, Zee Finder was born with a brillinat mind, an excess of curiosity, and one of the lowliest magical Talents in all of Sylvan. Which pretty much meant that she was screwed because no one in Sylvan cared about brilliant minds or curiosity. Magic was all that mattered in this world, and sadly, Zee's magic was paltry.
You see, Zee's magical Talent was Finding. She found lost things. She couldn't help it. She could not NOT find things. Keys, glasses, rings, smelly baby blankets, wallets, children, Zee could find them before their owners or parents even knew they were gone. She find things miles away, which made her an excellent Finder, but unfortunately, that wasn't saying much.
What Zee wanted more than anything in the world was to learn about Real Magic, not the Common People's Talents, but the big stuff. She wanted to be a Magician with a capital M. She wanted to pull things out of the air, like chocolate cake and warm clothes and a nicer mother. She wanted to put her hands in her pockets and draw out silver coins. And she would love to make a patch of blue sky follow her around when it rained.
But Zee was not born a Magician. So that was the end of that. Or so everyone thought, except Zee.
