Born in a small town on the edge of the Pilkia Forest, Milena's childhood was full of the love of a large cervitaur family and the tales of the Idellian Revolution. As a curious child, she one day wandered off into the forest and found herself terribly lost. Afraid, alone, and with no way home, she began to cry-- but no sooner than she did, an old satyr man appeared before her. Kind, warm, and with more knowledge about the forest than anyone she'd ever known, the man introduced himself as Ognian, the forest guide. Amazed by his skills, Milena asked him to teach her about the forest, to which he answered that she could come back when she was older.
Years passed, and she made good on her promise to return. Ognian agreed to mentor her, and for the next several years taught her the ways of the druid. After she learned all she could know from teaching, Ognian assigned her a hermitage-- an important step to becoming a true forest guide. She lived alone for three years, attuning herself to the magic of the forest and learning to speak with all its spirits. During this period that she spent alone, however, she uncovered something odd-- a book, perhaps even older than she was, hidden in the hollowed stump of a tree and filled with recipes for pies. A strange thing at first glance, especially this deep in a dense, difficult to navigate forest, but Milena was a smart girl. It was clear that these recipes were written in code, and the teen was determined to crack it. However, her curiosity quickly became regret when she realized what these recipes were-- instructions for creating weapons of mass destruction. The possession of such horrible information plagued her, and turned into deep paranoia as time went on.
The day she returned to Ognian's home, things only became worse. She returned just in time to see a pair of bandits attacking the old man, striking him down with their blades. Horrified and angry, Milena flew into a blind rage-- and the next thing she knew, there was blood on her hands. Panicked and terrified of herself, she ran to the side of her dying master and attempted to heal him, but he refused her magic. He passed on his staff and hunting knife to her, making her his official successor as he died. She held a small funeral for him, honoring the dead in a proper Idellian way, and after a while even begrudgingly so for his killers if only out of her own guilt. She took up the mantle of forest guide, and became the person she so wanted to be when she'd first met the old satyr all those years ago.

Didn't really have friends at home due to her job. Has made lots of new friends on her journey. Very close friends with Merrick; thinks of Mojmir almost like a daughter; tries to look out for Via and keep them out of trouble; feels very positive (if a bit uncertain after the whole thing in the village) about Tala, and has a... sort of playful frenemyship with Alexander. She likes Bell and hopes she can help cheer him up, and thinks Sarahade is a good person and wants to talk to him more. Also somehow ended up in a relationship with Gi-Harahabi, because I'm being indulged. Asper is her pet book spirit who likes to complain and try to convince us he's a top.
