: Aquatic Elf/High Elf hybridHistory
: No one knew precisely what to make of Maritza's mother when she walked out of the sea-- she was lost at sea during a violent storm while undertaking a two-year pilgrimage to the Islands of Fire, where she was expected to commune with the deep-volcanic gods. She had been missing for almost a year, and her family had mourned her and moved on. She was full with child, and explained that "they"-- some strange beings that lived far beneath the waves-- had taken her in and nursed her to health, caring for her and communing with her like an orphaned child. Why she returned to the surface was a mystery she would not speak of-- whether she had been cast out for some crime, or for her soon-to-be-born child's protection, she was filled with sorrow at every mention, and gave birth to her daughter alone in her order's temple inland. Naming her Maritza, she often wept while nursing the girl, whom she kept swaddled to her breast when she walked the edge of the sea by day and by night. The girl grew strong and, when she had reached adulthood, her mother seemed to know that she would return to the sea somehow, and watched with sadness as her daughter-- violent for her gender, impatient for an elf-- set forth with adventuring crews to learn to sail the oceans, where she would dive for pearls, salvage, and exploration. She could swim like a dolphin, and feared no storm, and formed quick-- but brief-- bonds with crewmates and port-lovers before moving on to the next unknown sea.Ability/Power
