: Xifeng is very sociable, friendly and vivacious, so she gets along rather well with most people, or at the very least most people who aren't immediately prejudiced against a woman with a pair of swords slung across her back. She's honest, dauntless and even a little cocky, rarely ever feeling the need to resort to underhanded tactics. Xifeng lives for the pleasure of living, and although she's loyal to a certain point, she's also unapologetically egocentric, looking out for herself first and foremost.Racial Animosities
: Very mistrustful of Hyrkanians Phobias
: Paralysis (by poison or magic more than injury), claustrophobia, being buried aliveBio & Notes
: Brought into the world by a couple of starving peasants who didn't even have the means to feed themselves, let alone a newborn, Xifeng was handed off to a group of wandering monks that routinely went from village to village in order to find and take in unwanted children. It was no evil scheme for them to collect slaves or test subjects for some of Khitai's infamous dark sorcerers. The monks were truly benevolent folk, and this practice allowed them to maintain their numbers while at the same time doing some good and saving a few lives.
For sixteen years, Xifeng was raised in a monastery located somewhere in the mountain range that separated Khitai from Hyrkania. Her days were long, filled with chores, lessons and training, but they were also very rewarding. She enjoyed her life. And then, on one starless night, a Hyrkanian raiding party descended upon her adoptive home, pillaging it and leaving nothing but debris and ashes in their wake. Xifeng fought hard, but she couldn't stop the enemy from killing or enslaving every single person that she'd ever known.
She was the only one to escape that fate, only to be hunted across the mountains by the cruel Hyrkanians for weeks. It was the most grueling and harrowing experience of her life, one which she'd much rather forget, but miraculously Xifeng survived and managed to find refuge in Kusan. From there, with no real home to go back to, she just kept heading west in search of adventure and the next tavern where she could stop for a drink.I agree to and understand The Oath of the Drake.
