Tatiana Falstad

Name: Tatiana Falstad
Race: Half Elf (Part Hesparian Human, Part Sylrosian Elf)
Gender: Female
Age: 35 Ordinations (Born in Aslangrad, so missed 650 era’s, and aged per 3 era’s)
Birthdate: 19th Aperitus, 9474 SDR
Home City: Aslangrad
Description: Being part elf means that Tatiana is exceptionally short, standing at only 5ft1 in height. Her dark red hair is shoulder-length, but typically platted to keep it out of her way. She has inherited the green eyes of her elven ancestry, along with the thin and lithe build typical to elves and the slightly pointed ears. The crossing of bloodlines makes her somewhat attractive, as does the slightly darker skin.

Brief History: An unwanted child born into a pro-human city. Tatiana was the product of an encounter between a human woman and an elven man. The man in question had been eyeing up her mother for a while and even trying to seduce her rather unsuccessfully. Unfortunately her mother eventually agreed to go on a date with him, just to shut him up and get him out of her way. As he was only visiting the city, she figured it likely wouldn’t do any harm. What she didn’t expect was to be drugged and led off to his room.

Thankfully a few patrons of the tavern recognized Tatiana’s mother and the elf, and realized that she would never have agreed to spend the night with him. The unfortunate elf was literally caught with his pants around his ankles and ran out of town, after a bit of a kicking and some rocks thrown in his general direction. The brief tryst resulted in a child, specifically Tatiana. Her mother resented her because of what happened to her, but her family tried to make sure both her and her mother were looked after. The elf had left behind his backpack and belongings. As much as possible had been sold, while the backpack was actually used as Tatiana’s bed.

One brightening, she was snatched from her mother, taken by the Cheksteufel, or the Mage Hunters as they were known in the common tongue. Apparently she was one of the special children that could not be unbound. There were three types of people within the world, those who could not be unbound, those who could but couldn’t handle arcana and those who made talented mages. The mage hunters sought out those who were completely magically inept and kidnapped them into their ranks.

While she was permitted to keep the name her mother had given her, the backpack she used to sleep in and her family name, Tatiana knew nothing else of her family. She had a little information about how she was conceived, but otherwise her entire childhood was spent conditioning her into the ranks of the Cheksteufel. She knew who her superiors were and that she had to obey them, a valuable skill in the secretive organization. When she became an adult, Tatiana was given a job as her cover and free room and board.

During the candlemarks and brightenings that she was not working, the woman was expected to learn a skill, either stealth or a weapon of some kind. Her lithe frame meant she wasn’t very good with hand-to-hand combat as she simply didn’t have the strength. Light weapons seemed to suit her, except for the crossbow. One brightening, for no reason that she could explain, Tatiana picked up a Heavy Crossbow and took a few practice shots with it. It seemed that she was a natural, hitting close to the bullseye every time. She did not fare as well with the lighter crossbows, or even bows. Using both hands on the weapon seemed to help her a lot.

As such, even though it was a little unorthodox, the mage hunters permitted her to study the Heavy Crossbow. It didn’t take long for her to become skilled with the weapon, able to pull off some pretty good shots, reload the weapon and even maintain it entirely on her own. Of course, there was still room for improvement, but she now had a skill that she could use.

Now it was time to put that skill to the test and hunt down her first target…
