'Rift on the Shadowfell'
Tina's Character Human Defender
I am Elvira Stormborn and my family have been defending the Southern road which is the main travel and trade route. We have also been the last defense of the southern cities from any major invasion. 26 years ago an evil army lead by a daemon assaulted our castle for their conquest of the south. The army fought bravely and made the evil invaders pay dearly but the cost was high. During the battle my father was killed and we were about to loose hope when a Elodrin named Ashlen arrived. He managed to pull the daemon to him and they fought for what seemed like an eternity. The demon through Ashlen to the ground and he lost his sword. I was so enraged that I picked my father’s sword up and charged at the beast. the distraction was all Ashen needed because his sword flew back to his hand and he beheaded the daemon With the daemon dead the evil army lost their momentum and our army in seeing the blow finish them off. Ashlen Impressed by my bravery said he saw a spark in me he would like to expand on. He told me he was a Swordmage dedicated to the Coronal Guard. His mission was to stop daemons from destroying cities and the land as it did to his home the city of song. He said i had some skill with the arcane and that he would take me were I could harness it and he would teach me to fight and defend those as my father did. I agreed and with my mothers blessing I left. I was taken to a place called the white lotus academy. A ancient organization of magic education and study. I studied hard and practiced melding my sword play with my arcane power. Ashlen would leave and return often and when I finally reached the point he thought I was ready he initiated me as a squire of the Coronal Guard. He said I must do deeds worthy of the guard to be counted as one. He explained very few humans are ever given the right to be a guard or to even know of their existence but I had the desire needed. So in my travels trying to stop not quite daemons yet but evil priests and their worshipers I stumbled upon a group of adventures who were attempting to stop a daemon from being summoned through a portal. They had just lost 2 members and I new I could help and needed to do this. So I talked an elf friend I had made in the town Know as Lucian into helping me join the group with him. He was a cleric on a path of destroying evil so our paths were going in the same direction. He talked to them and convinced them to let us join they were so eager to have another sword they never question why I would want to. The battles were like nothing I have ever experienced fighting all manor of creature, undead, and pools of blood. We went to far as to talk with an undead former defender of the castle. The final battle was intense and I could see the daemon trying to escape the portal but we stopped it just in time. There is an Elodrin with the party a war wizard who knows of swordmages and I suspect he my recognize my style as that of the Coronal Guard but I have not had the opportunity to discuss this with him with all the killing and mayhem around us.
