Phaedra Hemlock

Race: Cether
Height: 3'11"
Weight: 49 pounds
Hair: Dark brown, curly
Eyes: Brown

Starting Package
1 Stiletto
1 Family Heirloom: Bone from father's hand, worn on a thong around her neck.
1 Visa

Other possessions:
Sling
Large battered top hat
Ceramic Ocarina that makes eerie sounds

Where she lives: Phaedra lives in an abandoned storm drain collection chamber. This is an underground cylindrical room with stone walls and floors, about 15 feet in circumference. At one time this room collected rain runoff from three large pipes high in the walls and diverted it into a drain to the ocean at the lower part of the room, but it is no longer in use and the ingress pipes are blocked off. Phaedra accesses the chamber through the drain pipe, which at 2 feet high is an uncomfortable fit for larger folks.

What she does: Phaedra makes a living by skinning dead animals and selling the fur for coats. Stray cats make up the bulk of her living, but she is not above killing the occasional dog or any other animal she might find dead on the streets.

What she looks like: Phaedra is tall and thin for a cether, with curly brown hair that tends to pile up into odd formations if not seen to frequently. She tends to wear simple utilitarian clothing, usually black or very dark blue in color. She usually wears a cape of black burlap.

How she acts: Despite her necromancing ways, Phaedra is not truly evil, but she does have very very little empathy. This, coupled with her worldview that death is a door to a greater beyond that all must eventually step through, means that she is not inclined to sympathize with tragedy, nor hesitate to shove a knife into people.

Phaedra’s History

Phaedra was born in a graveyard. Her father had a menial job digging graves and making minimal efforts to keep the graveyard in presentable shape, and he lived with his wife in a comically small hut (even for Cethers) on the graveyard property.

When Phaedra was 7 her mother had had enough of the graveyard and poverty lifestyle, and left home with her younger brother, never to return. Phaedra’s father, now with more time and quiet for introspection, decided that he too was losing his patience with the minimal existence he had hitherto been scrounging out. After some thought and experimentation, he developed a system of grave robbery, were by he would wait until after the funeral and then wedge a board into the grave so that he could cover it with only a few inches of dirt and none would be the wiser. Later that evening he would come out and dig up the grave and take any valuable he might find.

Grave robbing was an uneven way to make a living, with mostly very small takes punctuated with larger ones. Phaedra saw this, and began to take charge of the family funds, saving the larger takes and spreading them out over the ensuing brightenings and cycles.

Things were moderately good for a while, until one brightening Phaedra’s father dug up a corpse with a fine ring that he took a special fancy too. Not three brightenings passed before he was spotted wearing it by one of the dead man’s sons. Saying nothing, the son returned to the graveyard with his two brothers in the small candlemarks of the night, and set fire to Phaedra’s meager hut.

Seeing flames on all sides of her and the air choking with smoke, Phaedra fell down in a swoon and had what she later learned to be an unwinding dream. When she awoke, she found herself inexplicably alive, lying next to the charred body of her father. Salvaging a bone from her father’s hand as a memento, Phaedra moved to the city of Aelyria Prime, to find what work she could.
