Bio:

Kan’na is a Teifling who fell in with the wrong crowd. Though she was not born in Vress’natar, she spent four years living amongst the people of that great city, learning from Korga D’Ereiss (AKA Korga Blackhand) all that he would teach. Her family resides in the new Teifling settlement of Yaexx’iqan, and she has not seen them for more than three years. In spite of her time with Korga, her views were not accepted in the devil-ruled city.

Kan’na is surprisingly open-minded, considering her training and background, and has little wish to deal with those who are unnecessarily cruel. Being an outsider, she was an easy target for political persecution, and her outspoken nature only aided matters.

Three years ago, Kan’na was banished from Vress’natar. She cannot return, on pain of death, if discovered.

More on Kan’na’s banishment to come…

  • Appearance/Origins
  • What is your given name?
    • Kan’na I’ra
  • Is your given name commonly known? If it is a secret, to whom is it known?
    • Known to most people. There’s only a few places where I can’t use my name.
  • Do you have a nickname? If yes, how did you get it?
    • Some people call me R’ad Najwa “the Thunder Whisper”. This is because they say I am subtle, but disguise it through brash behavior. A few people, only in certain Fey circles, call me Amon Fen, meaning “She Who Hides In Poisonous Waters”. This is a more fitting name, or at least one of which I’m more proud. After a rather embarrassing public display of powers not exactly approved of in Vress’natar, an agent of the Maiden of the Moon appeared to me in a dream. I was told that the Maiden found me to be amusing, and led he me to a tiny Fey crossing, where I was to journey into the Feywild. There, I was to journey to the Murkendraw, a massive swamp, to find a tall stilted hut. My only task was to take something from inside; it did not matter what. The agent did not tell me that a hag lived there. She was terrifying, exuding a strange blend of age and power, and she did not stray far from the hut. For several days, I stayed close by, sinking now and then into the swamp, until the hag left the hut. Once she was out of sight, I climbed the stilted legs of the hut, and reached through a window, taking the first thing I found. Not that I know what it is…It’s a strange little broken piece of crockery, but it won’t break any further, even if you hit it with a hammer. Life is full of mysteries.
  • Do you know who your parents are? If yes, what kind of relationship do you have with them? If no, do you want to or are you trying to find out who they are?
    • Yes, I know who they are. My father is Bogan I’ra, the town’s least successful wine merchant, and my mother is Vrat’a Ki sk’I’ra, daughter of one of the town elders. I like them well enough, but I haven’t seen them in years.
  • What was your childhood like? Do you know where you were born?
    • My childhood? It was pretty dull, I think. Father used to drag me all over the place on his trips to drum up business. Speaking of which, that’s sort of where I was born, too. Between the wine casks in the back of the wagon, halfway between home and The Burning Lands. He never stopped the wagon, even when he heard me crying…at least that’s what my mother told me.
  • Do you know how old you are?
    • My mother says I was born twenty-six years ago.
  • Many people join mercenary companies to escape their past. Why did you join a mercenary company?
    • During my studies in The Burning Lands, I had the misfortune to discover that my talents lay not in the fires of the Inferno, but with the shifting mystery of the Feywild. It intrigued me, even then. While it is not forbidden, those of my race who bind themselves to the Archfey aren’t looked upon as “normal”. I’ve seen others hauled off to dungeons and worse for less than what I have done. Most are “re-educated” by some of the more brutal Infernal adepts, but the more resilient are simply imprisoned or banished. But that is another story altogether. A friend of my master decided that it was his duty to keep watch over my activities, to ensure that I did not truly taint myself with ideas unbefitting someone of our proud race. When I returned from the Murkendraw, Athaol was waiting. He had gathered support from some of the lower-ranking devils, and as soon as I was well enough to stagger out of the city, I was left to my own devices, warned never to return or be executed as a traitor to my race. As to why I joined the Legion, I always repay my debts. One of the soldiers spent a couple of days helping me to regain a bit of strength, and I began following the Legion. It took close to six months for the Commander to ask me why I was there. I’ve been with them since.
  • How did you earn living before joining the mercenary company?
    • I was a student, for the most part, doing odd jobs for my master. After I got kicked out of the Burning Lands, I wandered in the wild until I came across the Legion.
  • What is your hair style and hair color?
    • My hair is a dark gray-blue, and I usually keep it long, but out of the way by braiding it.
  • Do you have any scars? Tattoos? Birthmarks? If yes, where and how did you get them (except the birthmarks)? Do they have any special meaning to you?
    • I’ve got a few small scars, mostly ones from falling down as a child, but they don’t mean anything. No tattoos to speak of, but I like to carve runes into my horns. They look nice, and they’re almost like reminders of some of my more complex spells. I have a dark birthmark on the back of my neck. It looks sort of like an octopus.
  • What is the first thing people notice about you?
    • Aside from the carved runes on my horns, I wear mostly white, blues and grays, befitting a follower of the Maiden. Any and all armor/metals I wear are either silver, or have the appearance of it.
  • Personality
  • What is your personality like? What are your motivations?
    • I tend to be loud, but rarely say what I mean. Look deeper for true meaning. You could say I’m pretty loyal, and that what keeps me going is repaying my debt to the Legion.
  • Do you have any taboos or superstitious beliefs? What are they? What are the consequences of breaking/ignoring them?
    • When greeting new people, if they are perceived as friendly, one must only clasp hands with the right hand. This shows that there will be no attack with a weapon. If the left hand is used, then it is perceived as a great insult, and a strike upon the offender’s person is allowed.
    • Hands must be washed in dust before every meal, without exception. If this is not done, it may bring days of hunger.
      **Shoes are put on right foot first, or the wearer will suffer from clumsiness and injury.
    • Never sheath a knife without blood on it. This will lead to impotence in battle.
    • I do not speak of Baba Yaga. This is how she will find me!
  • Do you have any unique mannerisms or rituals that you perform on regular basis? What are they?
    • I wash my hands with dust before every meal.
    • Once every three days, I re-carve the runes on my horns, and then apply a fresh coat of paint into the carvings.
    • When sheathing my knife, I always prick my finger if it doesn’t have someone else’s blood on it.
  • What are you afraid of? Do you have any phobias? Why are you afraid of them?
    • I really don’t like leeches. It’s not quite a phobia, but almost. I had enough of them when I was hanging out under Baba Yaga’s house.
  • How well do you work with others?
    • I think that I work pretty well with others. Unless they go and do something stupid, then I have a problem with them.
  • What do you do for enjoyment when you have time off?
    • Time off? You mean we’re supposed to have time off?
  • Do you have any vices? What are they?
    • I guess you could say that I have one, but it’s a bit hereditary. My father was a wine merchant. I like to drink, on occasion.
  • How religious are you?
    • I do not subscribe to any one god, but my loyalty to the Maiden is absolute.
  • Are there certain things that you refuse to do? Why will you not do them?
    • Why do you ask? Hm. Let me see. I won’t kill anyone needlessly, and I’m pretty against torture. Why wouldn’t I kill them, or yank off someone’s fingernails for no good reason other than to get bogus information? Let me think about that for a second…because it’s wrong, you idiot.
  • In Your Opinion…
  • What do you see your class/role as (such as instead of being a ranger you are a “wilderness scout” or a “stealthy warrior highly skilled with two swords”)?
    • I think that for the most part, my role in the company is to be in as many places as I can, helping out the others as much as possible. So, in that respect, you could say that I’m a bit of a pest to the enemy, and a little unpredictable.
  • How do you feel about your own race? How do you feel about other races? Are you prejudiced against any of them? Why?
    • I don’t think I like my own people that much. Never really seemed to fit in with them, and then I got banished from where most of them live. They’re jerks, for the most part. Other races are okay, so long as they leave me alone.
  • How do you feel about slavery? Why?
    • I don’t like the idea, but I’m not dumb enough to think that anyone’s going to be swayed by my opinion. People are just bad sometimes, and I’m pretty sure that slavers are included in that category.
  • Relationships/Associations
  • Describe three people that are close to you, such as close family, loved ones, or close friends. Who are they? What do they mean to you? Do you know where they are? Are they still alive?
    • My mother. She’s the kindest, most honest person I know, and unless she’s grown a brain some time since I last saw her, she’s at home. Not that there’s anything particularly wrong with my father, but sometimes I wonder if he really notices that she’s there.
    • My teacher. He’s probably still in the Burning Lands, looking into his scrying furnace, trying to find the truths of the universe. He’s my source of knowledge, and if it were not for him, I would never have come as far as I have.
    • Hassan I’Ranha. He’s the soldier to whom I owe my life, since he sort of nursed me back to health. When I’d ask him why, he would always laugh and say that it was his job. Hassan is a cleric of Pelor, and he said that it would be unseemly to leave someone lying on the side of the road bleeding to death. I used to think he was invincible, that he would never leave me. He always seemed ageless, timeless. But then again, most Deva do. Less than a year ago, he disappeared in the middle of his patrol. No one was able to find any tracks, be they civilized creatures or beast. It was as if the earth swallowed him whole. I have no idea if he is dead or alive.
  • Describe three associates that you know, people that would help you as long as it doesn’t put them in too much danger or people who owe you favors for example. How did you meet them? How much do you trust them? If they owe you favors, how did you gain those favors?
    • Karl. He’s a half-orc merchant that specializes in exotic animal furs. He and I have gone hunting together in the past. I met him one day when I was on patrol in Aganas’k. There were some woods nearby the mine expansion, and Karl burst through a thicket of hemlock, nearly flattening me as he wrestled with a giant boar. He wanted the skin, you see, since it was bright, flaming red. Since I helped him out, he gave me a tusk, which I’ve carved into a slightly curved rod, which I use as my primary weapon. He roams everywhere, and I don’t really know where he’s from, but every now and again, I get messages from him at inns where we stay. I still don’t know how he finds me.
    • Malkuth the Well-Digger. Malkuth is the best drinking buddy you could ask for. A short, stocky human, he uses this odd artifact that’s been passed down through his family to dig wells. It looks like a normal shovel, but he never breaks a sweat. The damned thing does all the work for him, so he just sits there, watching and sharpening his knife. I owe him a few favors, mainly because he’s helped me find the inn after being in the tavern a few too hours more than I should have been.
    • Chok’ma, Star-Bringer. I don’t know if this is her real name. Chok’ma is a half-elf, who will tell you that she does not live anywhere, but I know that she is from Thiir’vaas. She ran away from home at a very young age, seeking fame and fortune. Unfortunately, all she’s found so far is trouble. When I met her, she was twelve years old, and scared out of her mind. Then again, I would be worried if she had not been frightened, since a couple of sketchy looking characters had her cornered against a giant elm. They were satyrs, and from the looks of things, they weren’t after her lunch money. It did not take long for me to convince them that she was not worth their time, but it was another matter entirely to get rid of them, since they’re all hands, so to speak. Chok’ma owes me big time. Last I heard, she was with an old sage in Mejraak, hopefully learning how to avoid things like that.
  • Describe three enemies or rivals that you have made. These may be people who simply want you dead, or they might be rivals who just want to best you or swordplay or eating doughnuts. However these are people that will go to great lengths to get in your way. What did you do to cross these people in the first place? How much do you know about them, if anything? Do you even know that you crossed them? What are they capable of (even if your character doesn’t know)?
    • Athaeol Di Hav’I’lhaand. Athaeol is the son of a bitch that got me kicked out of the Burning Lands. He is a master of diplomacy, and has a very charming nature. I met him through my master, who taught him, as well. Athaeol is about ten years older than I am, and has this odd idea that Teiflings should be a master race of some kind, lording over others like gods. I beg to differ, but he does not seem to share my opinion. Not that I really care. He found out about how I saved a visiting dignitary from a death by falling from the sixth floor window of one of the merchant houses. Of course, this is because I used Fey-granted abilities to catch him, teleporting him to safety. Athaeol was furious, and berated my master for hours. I don’t know very much about him, other than the fact that he seems to have a silver tongue, but I suspect that his Infernal powers are formidable.
    • The Green Gnome. I don’t know his name. I don’t know where he’s from. I don’t know what I did to piss him off. But what I do know is that he has the uncanny talent for showing up at the least opportune times, attempting to have me enter into a duel with him. The last time he appeared, I hit him with a dose of Eyebite and left the area. He’s just annoying, but I feel a little sorry for him. I think he can use magic of some kind, but I’ve never seen him do it.
    • Al’handra Bei’laqua. She seems to think that I’ve ruined her life. In the Burning Lands, she was known as a great seer. Now, she’s just a good seer. All I did was to correct her slightly, on only one of her visions. You can’t be a good seer if you only see things from one perspective. All I did was offer a different view of things. If a bird flies past your head, you may find it startling, perhaps even annoying. But for the bird, it is simply a path to another place. Al’handra forgot that. She made it her mission in life to annoy the hell out of me every time she came to visit my master, and I’m pretty sure that she plotted with Athaeol to get me banished. But that’s not something I will ever be able to prove. She is capable of far-reaching sight, and her visions are very accurate, but she bends them to mean what she wishes.
  • Do you have an animal companion/pet/familiar? How did you acquire your animal companion?
    • I have a pet bintourong, what you might know as the “bear cat”. His name is Durga Gita. This means “Unattainable Song”. Rather, I suppose you should say that Durga has a pet Teifling. He is an amusing, cunning creature that I met one evening while on patrol. At first, I did not even sense his presence, but when I realized he was there, he’d already begun to attack. He is very agile, and had me on the ground in a matter of seconds. Of course, he claims that by right of conquest, I am his to do with as he wishes. I’m not sure that I agree.
  • If you are a warlock, what entity did you make your pact with? It’s name? Do you know what its purpose/goal is? Does it have any goals your character is unaware of?
    • I have made my pact with the Maiden of the Moon. She is one of the Archfey. I do not understand what her motivation was for taking me under her care, but she has not treated me badly. Her primary grudge against lycanthropes may extend to using me as a tool, against them, but it has yet to come to that.
  • Other
  • What is the name of your Legacy Weapon? What meaning does it hold to you? How did you acquire it/how did it come to be? Does it have any history? Do you know what is its history?
    • I made my rod from the tusk of a large red boar. Karl, a half-orc gave it to me as a gift for helping him kill the beast. Moordenaar is its name, which means “slayer”. Sue me, I’m unoriginal.
  • What is your theme song?
    • Lucia Di Lammermoor (Fifth Element Soundtrack)
  • Will you use your powers for good or awesome?
    • Can’t I do both?
