Lara is a raven haired beauty with large, jade green eyes and full lips in a tanned, heart shaped face. Straight, dark brows and a straight, slightly upturned nose give her an exotic, look. A slender throat leads to shoulders that may be just a hint too wide and firm, well rounded breast that fills out her tunic in a most alluring way. A slender waist narrows before flaring out into well rounded hips and tight ass, which lead into toned, long legs. Most commonly seen in well made, if worn clothing of earthy tones, she moves with the fluid, unconscious grace of a predator; the low slung belt on her hips holding a long sword on the left side and a quiver on her right… a dagger hilt sticks from a sheath in her right boot. A longbow never seems to be far from her hands. A large, clack cat follows her like a shadow, its eyes almost matching Lara’s in color.
Lara is a complex mixture of deadly seriousness and outrageous flirt. When she’s engaged in the business of keeping the forest and wilds free of evil… and the world at large free of every slaver she can lay eyes on, her focus is near total and her devotion to her profession almost like obsession. Her staked out range has a marked decrease in raids on the citizens… and a significant increase in the number of raider bodies.
When Lara isn’t doing business, she is an outgoing, live for the moment (It may be the last) and outrageous flirt. She doesn’t seem to have a particular sex that she teases and laughs with, just a need to count every minute and make it matter. If you’re a friend, you’re a friend for life, if you’re an enemy… well, don’t expect too much more life to have. Slow to trust and allow people into her life in a real way, once you reach her, you’re golden.
The youngest daughter of farmers, Lara’s first 10 years were relatively normal. Up before sun-up to begin the day, bed not long after sunset and hard, honest work in the middle. Even at the tender age of 10, Lara helped the family in any way that was needed; be it helping in the kitchen or gathering wild herbs and berries for the family plate, she was helping in the fields at harvest by the time she was old enough to be taught when the produce was ready to be picked. All in all, it was a good life and one that she had never wanted for.
Then, just after her 11th birthday, her world was turned over and she was forced to witness the horrors of death in all of its vivid details. She had been sent out into the nearby fields and woods to gather roots and berries; she had a particular knack for it, and returned to find that the farm was ablaze and her youngest brother dying at the edge of the fields with two arrows in his back. Through his blood flecked lips, Lara learned that a raiding party of slavers had appeared just after the older boys and their father had gone into the fields to work. The screams of her 2 sisters and mother had drawn the men back and a fight had taken place. In the end, her two older sisters had been taken and her mother raped until she died.
Although Lara was taken in by a neighboring farm, she never recovered from the trauma and her heart was filled with hate of those who stole the lives of people to put them into bondage and swore an oath before the town’s alter that she would not stop until her sisters were free and every slaver she could find laid in his own blood.
When Lara was 16, she met a man in the forest who was tracking a band of Orcs that had recently moved into the area. His rough clothing and earnest attitude drew Lara into pestering him to teach her more about the forest that she loved and that he seemed to know so much about. After some years, she became a Ranger and devoted herself to that profession… which gave her an excellent platform for her private little war.

And the furry one...
Lara may get just a little tweaking, but I think she's done enough for play. Not having traits made me rethink things just a little. The panther is a "Cat, small," which includes Leopards. The beastiary listing of Leopard stated that panthers, jaguars and cheetas use the same stats and information, so Sam was born. Any changes from the beastiary listing is based upon level advancement and being an animal companion.
