She lived her life peacefully with her dad as a fisherman until one night, a drow party appeared at the town gate. Her father, Arthur, was adept at negotiating and brokering a compromise with ruthless raiders, but this time, the drow had other objectives.
Failing to meet the raiders' demands, Arthur tried to evacuate his beloved daughter before the drows caught up, but the raiders clearly anticipated this moment and quickly gained control of the situation. Arthur watched helplessly as they took his daughter and shipped her off into the night, fate unknown.
A group of paladins, returning from their mission, encounters the drow group. After a skirmish, they rescued most of the captive slaves, including Artura. They brought them back to the paladin order's sanctuary and medical attention then proceeded to arrange for their returns. Artura's injuries required lengthier time to heal, thus upon waking from her recovery, all of the captives were already gone. It was Huan Ying that greeted her first, and after listening to her story, Huan Ying gave her two choices: return home and endanger her people, or stay with the paladins and live a meaningful life. The heartbroken Artura weighed the two options, but chose the latter. She understood the stakes, but decided to marshal her strengths so one day, she'll go home with the means to defend her family and home.
She would spend the rest of her years training and touring with fellow trainees and paladins, but Huan Ying was often her main mentor and spiritual guide; teaching her the ethics of righteousness rather than the combative side of paladinhood. It was during this time she met Cúchulainn, a paladin who she spent a lot of time training and sparring with. In response to a war between the paladins and rogues, Artura was transferred to Scáthach, a combat-focused paladin who was also the mentor of Cúchulainn; this union brought the two closer and their relationship deepened.
As more time passed, the fateful night finally arrived. The hopeful paladin trainees were to be inaugurated as full fledged paladins, where they'll swear their oaths and servitude to their gods. On this night, Cúchulainn confessed his affections for Artura. Unsure of his motives at first, Artura reminisce the times they had together and accepted his feelings. Having a mate and a combat partner is one of the best silver-linings she could wish for, given her scenario.
She would later wake from her drunken slumber and find herself in an unfamiliar environment, and a cloaked stranger standing in front of her...
Despite her weight, her elfish genetics maintains her slender physique.
From her days as an Avariel-Phoelarch mix, her most noticeable feature is the five feathers that form a tiara-like appearance on her head.
Smaller plumes and feathers decorated the side and back of her head.
Another stark feature was her eyes that was swallowed by her black pupils and black sclera. If it weren't for the emerald green irises that ringed the pupils, one would think she had demonic background.
Now in her Avariel form, her unique features are no more and resumes normal elfish features. Her eyes, released from the black sclera, now have normal green eyes.
During her Avariel-Phoelarch stage, she had feather features on her upper body and head.
Now reborn as a true Avariel, her biggest feature is her snow-eagle wings.
She is right-handed and wields her shield with so. Believing the right hand should be used to serve for righteous deeds, she wields her shield to protect. And the occasional shield jab. Her left hand bears the sin of violence and act of deliverance.
