“Wanna see a neat trick?”
Current Status: Summer, 1331 Avard. Seraphina is one of Commodore Seamus' battlemages, and wherever his ship the Rattler II can be found, there she is, working either for the commodore or his Chief Marine, Angus Stonehelm.
A tiny waif weighing in at just over thirty pounds, Seraphina is a young, attractive halfling with silvery-white hair and pale, blue eyes. Her blue eyes have a tendency to glow with a pale blue, inner light when she calls upon her sorcerous powers. Her leather and cotton clothing is somewhat skimpy, with worn holes at the knees and elbows.
Seraphina carries a small backpack, with a bedroll on top, and a scroll case underneath. In the pack, she carries a variety of items, from candles to ink, parchments to rations, and fish hooks to caltrops. She carries a belt pouch with her more common items, such as a small steel mirror and some chalk. Seraphina keeps a close eye on her hand crossbow, and all its quarrels.
Togrom Devilscare – a Pirate Prince of the Alekdan Principalities – had a personal mage was a man by the name of Gregor Levelarous. Levelarous was an evil, merciless man who used people and animals for his own nefarious advancement in the black arts. The mage had discovered a number of ancient, evil spells that required spell components from halflings. Events during the War of the Undead, from temporal abnormalities to the rise of the titatanium dragon Artanus in Kur Maeth, inspired Levelarous to search for halflings hidden from society and civilization. Making use of Devilscare's networks, Levelarous managed to find and capture a number of the small peoples.
Using them in his vile experiments, and even beginning a breeding program, Devilscare thought to use the wee folk much as General Roreth had used the drow during the War of the Undead. Seraphina had been a wild halfling before her capture, but because of her potential, she received a backhanded education of sorts from Levelarous. Torture proved a quick teacher, and she learned to read, write, copy notes, and serve the wretched man in a number of capabilities. Her only escape was in helping the other animals in the mage's laboratories as best she could, despite being little more than one of Levelarous' more well-trained lab rats.
When Togrom Devilscare's rule was ended in a night-time battle on Vor 3rd, 1327 Avard, Seraphina and a number of Togrom's other minions escaped his mountainous island aboard a fishing sloop. The sloop's captain forgot to pay tribute to Olorin for the use of her seas, and the ship was wrecked upon the shores of the Gaebrum Forest, half-way to Sandar. Marooned with a pack of other strangers, Seraphina revels in her new freedom.
Seraphina is quick to find something exciting about a situation, no matter what the situation is. Eager for excitement, and quick to enjoy everything life has to offer, she either grins with absolute glee, or snarls with absolute hatred. Passionate as she is about all things, she is also passionate about being a packrat, collecting anything and everything that might come in handy. “Carefree” is perhaps the best way to describe this young, gleeful halfling. Events during the War of the Undead have left her deathly afraid of the undead, and of death itself; this fear is as much a driving force behind her life, as a stalking monster. Seraphina is also deathly afraid of evil mages and evil clerics. (Devilscare's personal priests sometimes 'repaired' the damaged animals and experiments that went wrong or were broken in Levelarous' laboratory.)
She speaks the Common Tongue and Halfling.
