Used a bow and arrow, and made time to teach those she freed this skill as well for not only battle, but for hunting to feed the rebellion
Rudanes was born in southern Lensa where she worked hauling supplies for construction for a new city. The story goes that in 4E 1614, she constructed her bow from her own harness and a discarded whip. She was able to make one arrow and shot the man who called himself her master directly between the eyes. With him dead, she and the rest of the Centaurs there escaped to Dorhana. She and her partners continued to attack settlements and trade caravans passing through Nephemir, freeing Centaurs wherever they went. In 1622, she decided to attack a rather large city and sustained an arrow wound to the side. The rebellion retreated. Rudanes' wound quickly grew infected and she passed away just weeks later. Her tearful last words were shared with her second in command and those closest to her between bouts of unconsciousness.
"I cannot meet the gods yet; I haven't freed them all. I refuse to meet them with my task half completed."She passed in and out of consciousness for the next while before quietly passing away. It is said that every Centaur present was able to say their thanks to Rudanes before she was buried. The rebellion hid her grave so it would not be disturbed as they moved on. It is said that a stone was laid atop the grave reading: "Rudanes, who met the gods a free centaur" Rudanes is still held with the highest regard among those with the rebellion and those still in captivity. Though her death was celebrated by many Humans, Centaurs celebrate her life and her sacrifice.-Rudanes' last words
Accomplishments & Achievements
Over her time as leader of the rebellion freed thousands of Centaurs and the rebellion grew in strength and number. Her story has inspired many Centaurs still in captivity to continue fighting. Though she ultimately did not meet her goal to free her people, she herself died a free Centaur and began a rebellion still following her mission more than twenty years after her death.
Failures & Embarrassments
Though she rarely if ever spoke about this fear, her last words indicate she felt she didn't do enough despite dedicating her life to her cause. Those who knew her say she ignored her own accomplishments and worked herself tirelessly toward her goals.
Resourceful and unrelenting. Rudanes was known for only speaking when absolutely necessary, instead observing everything going on around her. She worked herself tirelessly, at times foregoing sleep to attend every planned raid and attack.
Morality & Philosophy
Rudanes did not believe in sending others into danger without being present herself. It is largely believed that the injury that later led to her death was incurred because she insisted on scouting, planning, and leading the attack. This left her mentally and physically exhausted as the battle wore on.
