*The title comes with the job.
Extended description on the wiki.
Some gods and their followers has more firm ideas about what is proper than others. When Jehanne stole from one of the major temples in town, one of the things that upset its head priest the most was that she had disguised herself as a man to do it.
Since he did not catch her with the stolen goods, he could not punish her for that, but he could be inventive when it came to punishing her for entering the temple in improper clothes. So, he had a cunning dwarf artificer make a set of magic rings that would enforce some very specific rules, and used his divine powers to force her to wear them.
The rings made sure that she would have to reveal enough of her body to show everybody that she was female; she would never be able to masquerade as a man again. If she tried to hide her anatomy in covering clothes, or sneak around unseen, the rings would pull her limbs into positions that would counter this, and freeze in place, magically immobilizing her for a sufficiently long time to serve as punishment.
Doing post-graduate biology research, Aurora Falk joined an international, interdisciplinary team investigating some very strange discoveries in the jungles of Guatemala.
The discoveries included some primordial artifacts made of a mysterious morphing memory metal. Some of these appeared like human-sized jewelry and Aurora tried them on.
Of course this caused the dormant powers to activate and they locked themselves on her, binding her hands.
The artifacts could not be removed by any means known to science. Wearing them sharpened Aurora's senses to such an extent that even wearing clothes became unbearable. After shedding her protective layer she became supernaturally aware of all life around her and she felt promises of even stranger powers.
Her own Magical Girl transformation doesn't make things any easier.
Yngvild was undeterred. She set about using her diplomatic skills to find new allies among the forest's magical creatures.
The creature is helpful and friendly as long as it gets to keep Lyssa naked and tied up.
