Kerelia of Pinehaven
Kerelia grew up in a quiet farming town near Amphail. Her father was the towns head hunter and well respected in the community. When Kerelia was 10, a mysterious cult of dragon worshippers infiltrated the towns council and their corruption spread through much of the town. Kerelia’s father refused to co-operate with these new comers and one night the cultists decided to cull the remaining un-faithful townsfolk. Kerelia woke up coughing as smoke filled their house, she ran from her room in time to see her father cut down. The intruder was a towering dragonborn warrior, the green scales of his menacing face shimmering in the flickering flames. He turned to Kerelia with malice in his eyes, raising his greatsword high, when suddenly the door burst open behind him and a man burst into the room. With great speed and skill he ran circles around the half dragon and left him bloodied on the floor. He carried Kerelia from the fire as his allies drove the remaining cultist from the town. This man was a Harper agent and Kerelia was brought into their care. She practiced every day with with her bow and studied late into the night, inspired to be a hero like the one who had pulled her from the flames that day.
Shortly after she turned 19 her Harper mentor decided it was time for her to get her first field experience. She was assigned to join a couple of adventurers, Gundalar Feystal and Zhou Bei-long, who were to meet a Harper contact in Red Larch and investigate some unnatural disturbances in the region.
