Eryn MalthieCrunchy Character SheetBiography
Eryn Malthie grew up amidst the Hornvalle mountains, northeast of the thriving and infamous Lannisport. Her family was not well known, well liked, or well off. She lacked the most necessary commodity which a family needed to get by within Lannister Lands and, to make matters worse, was attractive enough to have caught the eye of a number of the men in the area who were capable of influencing events - men who were quite interested and eager to force the girl into prostitution.
Eryn resisted the temptation, however. She knew what was happening, but simply had too much pride in her to fall into their waiting plans and, thus, did everything short of selling her body to help her parents make ends meet.
As time moved forward, and the land fell into turmoil, times got hard, and those already in hard times grew steadily worse. The village Eryn lived within was sacked by Stark forces and Eryn and her family were driven out into the waiting hands of bandits who made the mountain pass her home. Eryn became separated and captured from her family in the confusion, and all to quickly she found herself forced to commit the very acts which she had resisted for so long.
Scant days later, the bandit troope came across the bodies of the girl's parents, murdered by Lannister guardsmen, leaving the girl without anywhere to go to and making her re-evaluate her schemes and plots to escape from the bandits. Sad as it was, they fed her and, to a fashion, protected her.
As time passed, she stopped being a victim of the bandits and became a partner, eventually making a game of her violations and challenging the troope to poker at night with her as the ultimate prize... some nights she actually won herself and was able to taunt all the boys by retiring to her tent, alone.
As the war worsened, Eryn moved into becoming a full-fledged bandit and, to some respects, a trusted mind when it came to tactics and strategies, helping plan ambushes and, actually being able to read, intercepting communications as she could.
Overall, the troope wanted to victimize and rob anyone they could, but they did take a special delight in assailing Lannister squadrons, whenever a squad was green enough and small enough to actually engage. The rest of the time, however, they simply melted in amongst the mountains, unable to pose a significant threat to an actual armed force.
