Name: Ellasa Mortan
Status: Mortal, and low born to begin with.
Role: (un)willing breeder. She does what she does not agree with, for personal reasons.
How did you get to the house of pleasure?
Ellasa had done well, she'd thought. Before... her world seemed to plunge into hell. As a young woman, she valued the stories of duty and honor that drifted between soldiers. Once of age, she'd applied to be taught how to soldier. How to fight. She thought she learned quickly. Instructors didn't often have to tell her something twice. But once all that was said and done, and she was passed into the Imperial military... Ellasa found that she was destined for nothing more than common footsoldiering. No tales of grandeur, duels and honor would be spoken of her.
A night's patrol, some years later, would bring an end to even that. When fleeing an ambush by creatures of power, Ellasa had her left arm burned away. Just below the shoulder it was... gone. As the spirits would have it, she managed to make it back otherwise unscathed and report. But without a shield arm, she could not fight and she was not highborn enough to seek out other... options. Dismissed from service, Ellasa returned home. No husband. No career to rely on. She eked out an existence doing whatever she could, until a chance encounter with the local human lord.
Long story short, he relayed a missive seeking out fertile females of childbearing age and called it duty. She was such a female, and of such an age. The lord offered protection along the road to the House of Pleasure if she would bear children under his script, bringing him status if any exalted. It could not be worse than the life she had now, he spoke. She would be well fed and taken care of, he assured her. Boy, he was a sly bugger. It sounded... good, to young and impoverished Ellasa. So she said yes.
His guardsmen delivered her to the House of Pleasure's front steps. She walked in with the missive in her right hand and presented herself.
(I'm looking for a proper picture, and the background/profile is augmentable if anything I've written is wrong to the setting. I am not "that" familiar with Exalted, but I do like the RP concept.)
