Background An elven foundling taken in by a elven religious order deep in an enchanted forest, Farra was raised to be a cleric. After a very focused, sheltered childhood, she is committed (some would say over-zealous) to the order’s causes of protecting nature and fighting against the abominations of Undead, although she had doubts about some of the order’s positions, such as its hostility toward dwarves, humans and artificers. Farra became known for asking uncomfortable questions and it was finally decided that she should be sent into the outside world to get some real life experience to temper her idealism and get her out from underfoot.
Farra’s initial task is to take a delivery of spell components (rare and specially-prepared plants) to the town of Winterhaven. One (and only one) of Farra’s teachers, Elder Hérdion, feared that the trip would be too dangerous and hired a pair of cheap mercenaries Tobeen Named and Ssilith to accompany her. And so Farra headed off, wide-eyed into the outside world.
