Lady Nanthiel Rylanth
Well-Behaved Women Rarely Make History
Description: Nanthiel is an elven woman with wild hair like a wave of red on pale shoulders and lips sculpted plump and red. She is fair-featured, her eyes a tempestuous shade that of gray. Her tapered elven ears are pierced with numerous moonstone studs. Her skin, tanned from exposure in the wilds but still bearing the pale milk color of her people, lies exposed in a leather bodice, leather skirt, and knee-high leather boots. Her most distinct feature, her flush bosom would seem over-large on a woman a foot taller; as she is, naught but about six feet tall, the effect is all the more pronounced.
Personality: Wicked and Cocky, Nanthiel is a born trouble-maker. She's confident and assure of herself, with a bit of natural swagger. She likes a good drink, a good fight, and an adventure into unknown lands or dangerous areas.
Background: Nanethiel was born into House Rylanth, a distant cousin of the family. Whether through the Gods or some other unknown force guiding her life, as a child Nanthiel had frequently had troubling visions and dreams, and a wanderlust to travel the realms and see the world, neverr content at home.
But she also grew tough, looked at the life stretching out in front of her and the dangers in the world and said "No, not on my watch." She ran away from home, fleeing into the surrounding wilderness. Through skill, cunning, and more than a little luck she managed to evade danger and learn the skills she needed to stand on her own. And she's been out in that wilderness ever since. She's trained relentlessly to try and protect travelers, believing that everyone, every individual, has a duty to do the most good they can for the community. Now, she makes a brisk business in trapping and hunting to sell the bones, trophies, and skins to city-dwellers to make earmuffs out of or whatever. She will provide guide and scouting support through the wildlands. She hunts in order to keep the people of Torendaar safe, and stalks the night of the woods to watch over those who will never know she's there.
