So here's my character concept:
A halfling ram-rider who patrols the borders of Amn. The youngest child in a large and poor halfling family, she was given up to the temple of Yondalla at a tender age. Energetic and spirited, lacking the patience and wisdom needed of a cleric, she was trained in the martial ways of a paladin instead (the priests also thought that the discipline of that path would do her some good, and they were right).
After coming of age, a little more mature (just a little) and still as lively as ever, she faced a major conundrum: Amn was prosperous and peaceful for the most part, with a notable lack of evil to smite. So she joined up with the border guard, patrolling the borders of Amn on her loyal ram companion and steed.
After hearing about the C
ntity, or CRIE, who had frozen an entire town in northern Calimshan and was now rumoured to be in Amn, she decided to seek CRIE out. It wasn't for the bounty, but rather to find out more about CRIE and prevent a similar icy fate from befalling the homes she watched over.
And did I mention she rides a ram? SO KAWAII!
