She isn't as strong as others so she bases her abilities on subtly, speed and agility. Has to fight the evil that comes from her blood, so she has been known to be quick to anger. And is in a constant struggle against her more unseemly instincts. One of her main limitations is the demonic traits she has from her father. The horns, the golden eyes, and her long pointed tail. So she has to try and keep herself hidden. It mainly why she became what few know as a shadow dancer.
Special Class abilities:
Shadow Illusion (though she has gained this skill and can only do small illusion at the moment. She is working on making this skill stronger.),Hide in Plain Sight, Survivalist,
Runa keeps to herself, stays to the shadows because they feel the safest. Most anyone that sees her instinctively thinks demon and reacts in fear. So she has learned to stay away from people, never staying put in one place long she has never really had a home. She doesn't even know who her mother and father are.
She doesn't trust many people, a few contacts she has made over her life. One of which is a half orc that crafts all of her weapons. An elderly blind cleric that has brought her back from the brink more than once. Runa seems a bit brash or what one would call a smart ass. But they are what she uses to keep people at bay. Simply making a joke when things get to be too much for her. She has been known to be quick to anger, the evil that came from her blood line making some choices much harder than it would be for most anyone else. She keeps herself in check through meditation, and a reminded of each truly evil act she has ever committed.
But Runa isn't all doom and gloom, when she is in her element or with someone she trusts. She is found to be witty and fun loving. Simply wanting to enjoy life and be part of something bigger then herself. Part of her one day wants a home, a family, a place to truly belong.
Runa was born to a human woman, and a very old Incubus. One couldn't know why he had chosen the female when he did. What drew his eye, what caused him to finally breed instead of simply feeding on the woman? Did he truly love her despite his nature? Or did he simply want a child? No one got a chance to ask, as her mother died at birth. And before her father could come claim her she was stolen away. And hidden from him using his own amulet.
The evil wizard that stole her away having his own plans for the powerful blood that flood through her veins. When she was little Runa was kept as a slave, beaten and ground into submission at a very young age. Her blood used to make the wizard stronger over his many years. She still has nightmares of the daily blood lettings. He would use magic to silence her as he cut into her flesh and let her blood flow into his chalice. And anytime she rebelled or tried to run he would beat her senselessly. The scars one her body reminders of the punishment and torture he would put her through.
Years past and the young woman struggled to find ground. To find a sense of self and the path she should be on. Her body and mind always too tired to ever truly fight back against her Master or so he liked to call himself. But something within her finally bubbled up and snapped. Her master having grown far too confident in his power and control over her. The anger in her grew to a point of uncontrollable fury. And she struck out against him before he could even think to react. The very dagger he used in his magic and to cut into her flesh was what she grabbed. The blade simply grabbed from his alter. Her unheard steps came up behind him, and she slit the man's throat.
She remained there unmoving watching him die, his blood pouring out and pooling around her feet. No remorse or regret filled her stained soul. His final act was one meant to kill her. The release of power sending her flying and impaling her on a pike. And she would have died if it were for the blind cleric that came to her aid. He said his goddess and his sense guided him to her. He saved her live and secreted her away as the chaos of the masters death filtered through his home, and other slaves ran for the hills. He took with him the girl, the dagger in her hand clenched so tight he couldn't pry it from her hands. And the books he himself could not read, but he was told could not be left behind. Evil would use them to their advantage.
It took all the cleric had to keep Runa alive, and months after that to get her to even talk. He started to show her how to adjust to life on her own. How to enjoy the idea of true freedom and how to protect herself. With his help she hid away the books of her old master, sealing it with her blood. He used her blood to gain power, but now her blood would keep others from gaining that power.
As years past she traveled with the Aldric the catfolk Cleric. His village having been destroyed he spent his life traveling and helping people. He had spent enough time hating and avenging his family. Having lost his sight killing the man involved with his family's death. He taught her how to meditate, and to look beyond the anger and rage in her heart. To try and live for the good in life even if you have to try harder to see it. He also taught her a few skills most wouldn't think a holy man would have. The ability to survive with what some may see as unseemly talents. But sometimes you had to steal your food when you couldn't afford any. And who would question a cleric and his young shy charge? He was also the one to give her the name Runa. As her old master never wanted to give her one, thinking it would give her far to much a sense of self.
Along the way they met Borac a Half-Orc, a master weapon smith. Aldric thought it would be good for Runa to meet him. The older Orc having been shunned for what he was. Could understand and see why Runa was so shy. He tried to help her come out of her shell. Yes she may have to hide at times, but that never meant she had to think less of herself. Others may not be able to see it, but she was in fact an amazing young woman. Between the two of her older friends, Runa started to find a sense of self. Started down a path that would hopefully lead her to finding her one true purpose and place.
She spent years traveling with them till she was old enough to go out on her own. Fine tuning her skills, even learning from a guild she came upon once. Runa has become a rather accomplished rogue, he blood making her much more attuned to her chosen class. The shadows came to her aid, and helped her to hide in plain sight of those that would shun her. Today she still travels, and still keeps in contact with her two friends.
