From publisher blurb:
Strange Name, Wyrd Abilities
Much like sorcerers, the cruorchemist draws power from her unusual ancestry, yet her familial ties are far less obvious and much of her powers are recessive and lie dormant. She can draw upon this power to cast a limited number of spells, but lacks the efficacy possessed by a true sorcerer. For this reason, she learns to manipulate the innate magical power that flows within her blood, and uses alchemical processes to refine and concentrate these magical energies to create distillations that unlock bloodline abilities and greatly enhance her spells.
