Tarsheeva Longreach - suggested Faction, class, level?

Apparently Tarsheeva didn't receive a writeup detailing her info in Planscape, so I'm wondering what your take on her would be. The pictures of her by Diterlizzi seem to make her a Fighter or possibly a Paladin, since she has on armor and a large sword. She seems to be good-aligned (or at worst, neutral) based on the few bits of dialogue between her and other characters that appear in various PS books (i.e. Planewalker's Guide, Guide to the Astral Plane, etc.) And since people go to her for advice and help, I'm thinking she must be of moderate to high level. So how would YOU stat her out? (Either in 2nd Edition terms, 5th Edition, or the edition of your choice!)

Hmm, in 3.5 I'd probably stat her somewhere along these lines:

Pl, female human, Fighter 6 / Planar Champion 6, Free League, NG

Level 12 seems right for me, as it's approximately the same as Autochon the Bellringer, Kesto Brighteyes and some others of the more prominent NPCs.

Not sure about the faction but the Free League or the Godsmen make most sense to me. She'd also make a fine member of the Planewalkers Guild.

Rip also figured her as a planar champion ( http://mimir.planewalker.com/forum/tarsheeva-longreachs-stats )

For 3.5, I always had her pegged as a horizon walker, after some kind of planar ranger levels (and maybe with some bard thrown in, for the lore aspect, and the fact that she knows her spells).

For 2e, the planewalker warrior kit would be suitable I guess.
I'm not too familiar with 5e, but sticking with the ranger might work. Maybe there's some cool planar bits in the Princes of Elemental Evil stuff?

As for factions, I thought she would be one of those out-doorsy sensates that want to visit every place in every plane.

I think she's Monte Cook's creation, maybe he's elaborated on her somewhere on the internets over the years.

You could also give her the Skill Knowledge feat from Unearthed Arcana to gain Use Magic Device as a class skill and to use magic scrolls.
