In the GameEdit
In the game, she's responsible for teaching the students/players about all things in science; including the scientific method, how to perform an experiment, geology, and life science. As one of the professors, she gives the player quests. She can be seen located in front of the Alchemy Lab or inside The Great Hall.
The Rogue Dragon Rider Edit
Inspired by Heather's actions in Race to the Edge: Season 1, Heather appears as a mysterious Rogue Dragon Rider in the expansion Call of the Deathsong. She appears for the first time with this alias in the quest The Mystery of Sven's Farm, helping the player in dangerous situations. Only later in the expansion's quest flow, her identitity will be revealed.
In this expansion we can see how Heather is conflicted between her duties as the school's alchemist, and her desire to help the Dragon Riders at Dragon's Edge against the Dragon Hunters. This can be seen in the quest The Hunter in the Blizzard.
- Strangely enough, it's never explained how did Heather became an alchemist;
- Comparing the confirmed story and timeline from the Series and from School of Dragons', there's no connection between the two, instead, there's a large plot hole.
- However, School of Dragons can be considered as an "Alternative Universe" and not used to connect with the official storyline.
