The dusky skin she seems more like she would be the jewel of the Tri-khan's wives instead of the warrior she is. Only the most dull though can not sense the deadly fire that burns softly within her wether she is awake or asleep. Ebon hair falls freely and unbound down her back frames and sometimes hide a face with dark sorrowful eyes. Her attire is as cobbled together as her weapons. A bow on her back, an axe at her left hip, a sword on the other, one hand armored in a gauntlet and a brace of knives slung along her chest. Her clothing and general cleanliness seems to be in need of some improvement. Her pants betray the marks of battle in stains and slashes, her top little more than some cloth tired around her chest and the excess knotted and dangling down her left side.
(In effect her lack of tacking care of herself counts as reducing her appearance to 3 for her bonuses over others. When her Essence goes up and she can hide her weapons in Elsewhere she does that)
The southern coasts of Creation are fertile and populous. The warm weather from the pole of fire tempered by the cool air of the ocean leading to a land suited for habitation. It is no surprise that the South is one of the most populated of areas. Some 50 miles outside of Chiaroscuro is a heavily farmed area. Local rivers provide easy irragation and the people enjoy the protection of the Delzahn who see all the excess that the area produces flow into their great city to feed the vast population there.
There was a beautiful woman who lived in that farming community. She was known for her caring nature and for her natural fire. Yet a dashing man came out of the city and married her. He settled down to be a farmer while she changed to be a quiet and beautiful wife for him. Together they had several wonderful years and the start of a family with the birth of their daughter. Yet their bliss was not to continue.
Her beauty attracted attention of another from that shining city. When her husband would not accept the challange at her biding the man left and she thought that was the end of it. It was only a few days later she returned to find a crushing sight. Her child was dead. The noble had returned and tried to fight her husband yet again and when he was refused in his rage he lashed out and killed the child in her husband's arms. A fury burning in her heart she went to that city to find him.
The details are not so important but at the end of that week she had devestated the entire household of that nobleman. Their deaths didn't help the ache in her heart though even if it had ignited a golden fire around her. Her husband was even more crushed than she when she returned home. He had been broken by the loss of their child in front of his eyes and believed it his own fault. Locked in his despair she could do little. He stays in the city now where she sends doctors to take care of him as he moves like one of the soul eaten.
She however left that city. She found work with the guild. They pay well and they send the money she makes extra to keep her husband safe. It was during her travels she was visited by a certain Nightmare Goddess who she has developed a relationship with. Part of it is that while she sleeps she does not dream of any of the pain in her past. Not a trace of it. That is what has lead to her being called the Sleepy Hydra by her employers. She sleeps a lot but when she wakes she is a whirlwind of death.
