Quest for the Fountain
Altheda came to the Fountain, in the hope of finding relief from poverty and unhappiness after her possessions had been stolen by a Dark Wizard. After completing three trials, Altheda arrived at the Fountain with her companions Asha, Amata, and Sir Luckless. Before the four could decide who would get to bathe in the Fountain, however, Asha collapsed from exhaustion. Altheda quickly gathered some of the herbs that grew around the Fountain and prepared a potion for Asha. The potion not only saved Asha's life, but also cured her of the malady she suffered, which she had believed only the Fountain could heal.
In curing Asha's sickness, Altheda realised that she had the means to earn a living, and thus had no need to bathe in the Fountain. She left the garden with her three companions and went on to lead a long, happy life.
