D&D 5E New Monster - The Silver Baba

I am building a parody of the Seven Sisters for my world, but using a lower cr guage.

I'm using this as a rough model.

I am open to any and all feedback.

Silver Baba

You see an old woman dressed in black garb with metallic silver symbols giving her a shiny appearance.

Knowledge. Arcane, History (Common DC 20, Unusual DC 22, Secret DC 24)
Spokeman of the Baba’s. The Silver Baba is the spokesperson of her order. She is the guardian of the Great Pysanka of Vegreville and tends this place of power. She is a master of Divination magic.

Icon of humility. The Silver Baba had a hard live before her ascension and as a result, does not like the arrogant, and bullies. While she may not change her tone, she will start setting things in motion to make their lives miserable.

Giver of Favors(Secret). If the secret knowledge check is made, you can call of the Silver Baba to come in and help you on your behalf for 1 round before she leaves. It cannot be for anything against her ethics, but her word is her bond.

Perhaps the Foresight might be permanent? Would she really have Simulacrum memorised for an encounter? And I'm not seeing any great escape spells.

Should the recharge for Foreshadow be 'casts a spell of 1st level or higher'?

ooh will treak foresight.

One second thought, I don't think it needs a recharge namely because it is random and circumstancial as it is.

What is a great way to escape using divination magic?
