Ash worked in a body modification shop in the nicer end of town which specialised in enchanted modifications: earrings that could translate Elvish into Dwarfish, tattoos that moved, that sort of thing.

They alternated between working in the back, making jewellery and sketching out designs, and working at the till helping customers. It was good work, and they enjoyed it. Ash especially liked talking to the shop’s regulars, like the witch who came in every few weeks to see what amulets were in stock, or the dwarf with charms and beads weaved into her beard and tattoos covering her arms.
