Indeed it was wealthy and she was from a very well to do family. She excelled at song and dance and was everything the eldest daughter of a family should be. She had many suitors and was sure to bring the family honor by marrying a man that they deemed suitable. Then, one night, she was swept off into a moonlit dance by a remarkably handsome man. He said his name was Tynan and that she should call him by his first name alone. She blushed prettily, and replied softly, as she should, that it wasn't proper. And that she shouldn't be alone out in the garden with him. He smiled and said that he would return her but he would come back and would she promise to go with him when he did. Shayla blushed and replied that she would give her word of honor that she would. He returned her to her the ball and she found herself disappointed when she did not see him return. She left the party at an appropriate hour and returned home. She was in her dressing gown when there was a knock on her balcony and she opened it to find Tynan there. She blushed, being only in her dressing gown, and pulled it about her as she said, "Mr. Tynan, this is hardly an appropriate hour." He lured her out nonetheless, reminding her of her promise, and in this manner she was brought to Arcadia. In Arcadia she was given a lavish room with plenty of beautiful things. Still she was frightened fearing that she had done something terrible and that something terrible was about to befall her. Yet Tynan was nothing but sweet and kindness to her. He explained that yes he had tricked her but he could give her a far better life than what she could have ever hoped for before. He would dote upon her as long as she did as he suggested. Shayla was lulled in and nodded agreeably enough. Her first few days in Arcadia were wondrous and she was instructed in song and dance and taken very good care of. Then she began to learn other skills as well she was taught how to throw a dagger and which points were the vital points in harming someone, only if they were going to harm her of course and he wasn't there to protect her. Gradually it came to be that she would entertain his friends. She was encouraged to chat with them and let them take liberities. She was sure he jested and slapped one of them when he tried. She learned his displeasure then, both his and his friend's. She quickly began to learn that this world was not as kind as she thought it to be, besides the point that it was magical she came to realize it was also quite terrifying. Shayla began to serve as an Entertainer for them, much like a Courtesan or a Geisha. Indeed her relationship was very much like a Geisha and her Danna in regards to Tynan. She had feelings for him, but they slowly diminished as she was moved onto the next phase of her servitude to him... she began assisnating those of which he found displeasing. Getting close to them through seduction then dispatching them while they were vulnerable. This went on for what felt like only a few years but a few years were torment for her. She didn't know how many she'd killed and she was sure that no husband would want her. Then she remembered her forgotten fiance. A man that had shown her what she believed to be true love. Yes he may have not been the passionate love she'd watned but he'd been comfortable and let her be who she was and didn't care. He'd just wanted her to be happy. She was starting to lose all hope when one day she realized she was outside of the grounds and no one... no one was around. None of the normal guards were there and she ran. She ran through the forest and down a path. She heard the sounds of horns and hounds as if for a hunt and nearly screamed but kept her voice. Only to come out into a strange new place.
