  • Personality Traits: Womanly wiles, weaponized! A fiery, free-willed spirit.

  • Bonds: The order and balance of nature has gone awry; when it's this far gone, sometimes it a cleansing fire is necessary.
  • Flaws: Hedonistic tendencies often distract; fiery temper can exacerbate problems

Background Feature: 

All Eyes on You

Your accent, mannerisms, figures of speech, and perhaps even your appearance all mark you as foreign. Curious glances are directed your way wherever you go, which can be a nuisance, but you also gain the friendly interest of scholars and others intrigued by far-off lands, to say nothing of everyday folk who are eager to hear stories of your homeland.

You can parley this attention into access to people and places you might not otherwise have, for you and your traveling companions. Noble lords, scholars, and merchant princes, to name a few, might be interested in hearing about your distant homeland and people.


Originally from a nomadic tribe who wandered the harsh outskirts of Thay, Karina was sold into servitude at an early age — bartered away for naught more than a goat and some barrels of fresh water; an altogether fortunate outcome considering the usual fate for spare children in the region. Now under the care of a local warlord and his cohort, Karina was tasked with menial labor until such a time that her beauty and allure began to attract the attention of prominent figures within the cohort. Having taken a personal interest in her, the reigning warlord sought to "protect" his investment by placing her under the tutelage of their resident mystic, a seer and medicine woman whose venerable age and status made her untouchable amongst the rabble — and her flock by proxy.

While such tutelage was certainly beneficial in familiarizing Karina with the arcane traditions of desert tribesmen, the spirited young woman longed for excitement and splendor beyond what her indentured servitude offered. She envied the traveling dancers and consorts who weaved in and out of the cohort during their travels; they who flaunted their freedom, grace, and extravagance; they who made their wiles work for them, who conquered the conquerors with naught more than flesh, song, or dance! Alas, she was stuck in her lot by the whim of a possessive warlord. What could she do? Why... run away with the troupe, of course! A fleeting group of veiled dancers and temptresses would not notice one more in their flock if she looked the part, nor would the warring cohort be wise to the disappearance of their most lovely seer so deep in the depths of a drunken night — until it was too late.

Thus, Karina fled her captivity and mingled amongst entertainers, consorts, and artists in lands far-flung from her home. And for some time this was how she made her living; by fleecing the unsuspecting, exploiting her natural wiles, or — at the very last resort — plying her arcane trade. Until such a time that she had earned the attention and affection of a particularly perceptive and entrepreneurial man whose endless pockets were not the only form of ingenuity he expressed. He told Karina of an academy whose teachings could lead her to a life e're more exciting, adventurous, (and possibly hedonistic) than the meager one with which she presently dwelled.

Intrigued by the prospect, she leapt at the chance. All the while wondering what she might owe this man once he called in her debt.

A problem for another time...

Wildfire is from Tasha's which is not a valid resource.

No worries, I just saw that you were cool with Beast Barb in an earlier post and didn't know if WF was kosher or not.

I can change it to something else; will workshop it.

Looks good, except the image seems to be broken.

Good luck in final selection.

I believe the image is fixed now, thank you!
