Marla Wolfblade: HistoryEdit
I was born many years ago, in a land far away. My father was a veteran warrior. As a child, my family scrabbled out a meagre living from my father's wages as a guardsman to the local lord. It was not an easy existence, and I was too poor to get much of an education. I learned mainly how to defend myself on the streets, with or without a weapon in hand.
I started to learn about the world almost as soon as I could walk and talk. I spent my early life as a noble in training. As a girl growing out of childhood, I was trained and educated to the duties of a noble woman. I learned much about household arts, but even more about diplomacy and decorum, and all the things that a future husband might choose to speak of. Truly, I became every inch as shrewd as any lord though it would be rude to admit it.
Then, as a young adult, life changed as it always does. I became a bravo. Though the distinction felt sudden to me, somewhere along the way I had become a woman, and the whole world seemed to change around me. I left my old life behind to travel the roads as a mercenary, a bravo, guarding caravans for coppers or bashing in heads for sivils. I became a daughter of the open road, working with bandits as often as against. Going from fight to fight, I grew experienced in battle, and I learned what it was to kill.
But soon everything changed and I decided to strike out on your own as an adventurer. What made me take this decision was the loss of my father. I could not stay with the painful memories of those I loved so close. Perhaps my new life in Calradia will let me forget or honour my father's name. As a common woman I may face great difficulties establishing myself in this new land of Calradia with their patriarchal society and demeaning looks at women but I will show these fools that I am a force to be reckoned with.
