Tia'Vis was a quiet girl who displayed the potential for magic early in her life. Her parents loved her very much, but when things started to go crazy around the house with her wild magic they decided she would be better off being taught. The year of her 5th birthday a wizard came through town. Her parents met with him and discussed the things that were happening with Tia; he agreed to take her on as an apprentice, but he traveled and she would have to go with him.
Her parents reluctantly agreed, when Tia looked up with her bright eyes and says, " You mean I get to learn MAGIC!. Tia has absorbed every part of magical teaching that the old man would teach her, in between doing his clothes and cooking meals for him. She didn't mind the work because he was a kind man, to her at least, and the joy in his face pleased Tia every time she pronounced a difficult verse in a spell or got something correct with her teachings. Over the years she grew very fond of the man, thinking of him as a father figure.
They traveled the dale lands, and went to many different cities up and down the sword coast. Sometimes he would disappear for a few hours, at these times Tia would occupy herself with practicing simple incantations. Sometimes he would come back and show her what he found, and the wonder in his eyes always made Tia giggle. At these times he looked like a young man once more.
A couple months before Tia's 17th birthday the master told her that she would be leaving soon, and that he had taught her everything that he could to get her ready for her own life. He say to her, You need to stop living this old man's life. Go find your place in the world.
With those words Tia left her teacher and mentor, and headed to Waterdeep to find her destiny.
