Personal history

Kali was born a slave to the yakuls of the old Human Empire, never knowing her parents. However, she happened to be sold to a relatively kinder owner when young, where she was taught how to fight in order to serve as her master's bodyguard. As time went on, Kali witnessed the horrendous treatment of other slaves underneath the Human Empire and began secretly teaching other slaves how to fight. Once, she had trained enough slaves, she started a small rebellion and succeeded in escaping the region. Then, they reached out to the united rebellion of non-humans and began working on secretly teaching slaves across the Empire to fight.   Once they built up enough of a fighting force of trained slaves, free non-humans, and sympathetic citizens, the rebellion declared outright war against the Empire. Kali lead a platoon of rebelling slaves mostly and ended being one of the groups in the Sack of Orbooz, and her group specifically made it into the palace where Kali supposedly fought in single combat with the yakul warrior king Zalla, and slayed him. However, it is unknown if she truly did land the killing blow as the palace collapsed immediately after Zalla's death, killing everyone within it.




Kali had no academic education, but she did learn how to fight from one kind slave master she had who has an ex-soldier. She would later repay this kindness by giving him a proper burial after he died of old age.


Kali spent most of her life as a slave, but during the last chunk of her life, she was a rebel against the oppressive policies of the Human Empire.
