Name: Lady Ysena Veleth
Age: 24 (appears 19)
Personality:Dispite her appearance, Ysena has a bit of a reputation for being a tomboy, talking about how she wishes to lead great armies into battle and slaying foes, much of this impression is mostly from her father, although like all women, and elven-kin alike, she has a taste for comfortable attractive clothing. Currently in mourning over the death of her father, Ysena has since sworn a oath of vengence against the warlord, wanting to see her countrymen free from his grasp, and his head mounted on a spear. Although lacking battle experience, she is well versed in military stratergy and tactical combat, to which she has a flair for hit and run tactics.
Background: Ysena is the daughter of one of the most reknown and respected generals of this age, the elven Knight-lord Rahal, and his human wife, due to his exploits he was ordained a lord and given governship over one of the most vital towns in the kingdom. The small town of Aeris was a community situated atop mountainous paths where the small paths leading up and down the mountain from the town made it near on impossible for large forces to assault. But not for smaller forces and supplies, thanks to careful quarry work, and forsight making the town a ideal location for housing the supplies to the battlefront. Rahal lead this town with a fair hand and it prospered because of it, becoming more than just a supply point.
(Think of something similar to this but not quite such a grand scale)
Much to her mothers chargrin, Rahal taught Ysena the arts of military stratergy, and some combat skills. Although she did not easily grasp combat, she took to military stratergy like a moth to a flame. Soon she became a established tactitan in her own right. Although knowledge of her capability was mostly kept in the dark.
Due to its strategic importance when war broke out, Aeris was under constant raids from enemy forces, bent on disrupting supply operations to the front lines, however each time such forces were repelled. So it was no supprised to anyone that the infamous ghosts were employed against them.
As only a token force remained at the town, due to the constant need of reinforcements and supplies, they were constantly guarding supply trains between the mountain town of Aeris, and the front lines of war. the ghosts got inside the city walls with little difficulty, but thanks to fate Ysena was out of the mansion at the time, as the ghosts struck, killing most of the command hirarchy that was within the town. including her parents, which Rahal was ailing from battle wounds earlier that week. Thanks to her understanding of tactics, Ysena forsaw that the food supplies would be the next target. Reinforcing those locations with the remaining soldiers, she was able to repel the ghosts from completing their objective. A feat that has yet to be repeated.
But it was all in vain, as a few weeks later, even with the supply lines in tact. the front lines fell to the warlords armies. Now with Aeris serving no strategic value became isolated, but Ysena rode out without soldiers, leaving the remaining commanders in charge until she returned. Wishing to deliver the bad news to the king, and she hoped, to assist him before the warlords armies reached the capital.
