I haven't filled out much of the fluff yet, I'll do that after I've slept. I wanted to get a bare bones skeleton out there.
The concept of the character is she's a half-drow (drow-blooded alternate trait, but not drow-magic, though I took wary to reflect her early life), who basically spent the first 12-13 years of her life fending for herself and whatnot. She took refuge in a temple to Shelyn quite often and fell in love with the beautiful songs she heard there, and eventually began to worship the Eternal Rose herself. Shortly after that, however, she found herself driven out of the town she'd been staying at, and hitched a ride with a traveling band of dwarves on... some quest. I'll work out the specifics. Anyway, when they discovered her, they first thought of tossing the little half-drow out to find her way home, but couldn't bring themselves to be so cruel once they realized she had nowhere else to go. They let her stick around and in exchange she basically took care of menial chores and whatnot. She proved to be pretty good at picking up languages, and learned dwarven from them, surprising them one day by interrupting a private conversation. As she grew older, they also taught her some basic combat skills, and she learned how to shoot a crossbow. When she was around 16-17, they parted ways, and she found herself in a big city. She had some misadventures, learned halfling, fell in love, had some heartache, picked up some new skills, and basically just experienced all the drama you'd expect from a teenager. One thing lead to another and somehow, by the time she was 20, she found her way to this fun little group.
Feel free to point out any mistakes, I was a little low on sleep when I filled it out.
