Octavia doesn't know where she came from. She doesn't even know if "Octavia" is her real name for that matter. All she knows is that she was born in Winterhold, the daughter of a prostitute with her father unknown. She grew up in squalor, learning to steal more as a matter of survival than of choice. At the age of ten she was sold by her mother to a passing trade caravan as an extra set of hands. She has no idea whatever became of her mother (or "that bitch" as she calls her).
The caravan life was hard and the guards and workers were harsh to a little Imperial girl. Many in the caravan carried grudges against Imperials stretching back to the civil war and took it out on her whenever they could. She came to hate her lot, and when the caravan stopped at Riften she decided to leave. With the caravan's payroll. She fenced the stolen goods for cash and came to the attention of the Thieves' Guild. They took her in, gave her a family, and taught her her trade. As she blossomed, she proved more adept at using her good looks to get close to people and then pickpocketing them. She also developed talents as a fence and conwoman, preferring to avoid direct confrontation and obtain things through guile.
At 17 things got a little hot in Riften. She'd conned one mark too many and needed to get out of town. The life of an adventurer was perfect for going to distant places and being far away from potential enemies back home. During this time she seduced, conned, and stole her way down into Morrowind and as far north as Dawnstar, under various names and disguises. But a life of tricking others and traveling alone left her hollow. When things calmed a bit in Riften she drifted back to her roots in the Thieves Guild. In time she came to the attention of the Nightingales, the elite protectors of the shrine of Nocturnal, Daedra Princess of the Night. At first she thought it was just another way to scam folks. She'd posed as a priestess of the Divines before to con money from pilgrims and this seemed no different. But over time, she came to truly believe in Nocturnal and to find a comfort in worshiping her that she hasn't had in as long as she can remember. She was initiated into the Nightingales in time, and continues to adventure for profit, excitement, and to enrich the Nightingales and the Thieves Guild as a whole. After all, they're family in her mind, and family comes first. Weapon(s):
