Samedi was born in southern region of the Untamed Lands seventeen years ago, four days after the winter solstice as a result of the union between the chieftain of the Deerstalker tribe's youngest son (probably) and Cassandra Métayer, a merchant whose caravan had been set upon by the ferocious beasts of the northern lands only to be rescued by the tribe's hunters. Well... "rescued" could be one way of saying it, "taken as a prize for a successful hunt" would be another. While reluctant to join the tribe and add fresh blood initially, several decades and six children sired mostly by different fathers later Samedi would say her mother seemed rather docile about the arrangement. She has often wondered why she was given the name of her mother's clan, but in the end it's not like it matters too much.
As part of the Chieftain's lineage (most likely), Samedi was spared the fate of her mother and trained in hunting and combat by her father and uncles from what might as well have been the first time she could stand and walk by herself. At age thirteen during her rite of majority she successfully hunted and killed a great stag by herself, and two years ago at age fifteen she dealt the killing blow to a bear that attacked the hunting party she was part of. As a reward, she was permitted to keep its hide which she wears draped about her shoulders to this day.
During the war against the Beastmen, the Deerstalker tribe were one of those who pledged their service to Lady Yustissa's alliance, for no other reason than to prove their worth against the great foe that lay beyond the seas to the west, as this was seen as one of the greatest hunts of them all. While prior to the war Samedi would have been content to stay in the lands her tribe used as seasonal hunting grounds, she follows the will of her Chieftain and joined the southerners in battle against the beasts.
The legends of the Deerstalker tribe tell of the first days of their people who were named for their pursuit of the four great stags that were said to make their home at the base of the World Tree, Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr, and Duraţrór. It has been said that the founder of the tribe spent the entire course of his life hunting these four beasts, as his mother was said to have tracked them while he was still in her womb and his sons carried him atop a palanquin while in search of them in his dying days. The reason for the great hunt has been lost to the ages, but it is a tradition that the Deerstalkers continue, though the stags haven't been even been rumoured to have been seen in over a century.
As part of the tribe, Samedi's ultimate goal is to locate the stags and slay them, even if the original purpose for doing so has long been lost to antiquity.
In the short term, however, she sees the threat of the beastmen as a way to prove her worthiness, as she believes the great stags will only appear to those who show strength and conviction and as such will do all she can to show her might.Personality
In short, Samedi is brash. She shows none of the mannerisms of the 'polite' or 'civilised' world in her speech, preferring to stay informal. As a hunter she has learned the art of waiting and observing, which has forged the vicious temper she once showed as a youth (likely as a result of having to bare her mother's name) and shown her to not judge others too quickly. Simply wait and observe... see if they are who they seem to be when you first meet them. First impressions are often misleading. She has also learned from early expeditions to watch the back of her team, to watch out and take care of others as best she can.Sexual Experience
None - Samedi is a virgin. The men of her clan feared repurcussions from the Chieftain's son for touching his daughter, and since going out into the world she's been able to fend off the unwanted advances of men who wish to claim her as her mother had been. That isn't to say that she isn't without passions. While no act of penetration has occurred, due to the open attitude towards affection of her people Samedi can at least attest to have spent sessions of kissing and fondling both men and women in her tribe, and has fantasised about others she has come across in her travels.
