Personal history

Early Childhood

Maira was born in Vintia, to Alehandres and Phena of house Von Fritz. She grew up in a noble court and manifested her first magical talents when she was 11 years old.  

Magical Studies

While in the conclave she was apprenticed with a prominent enchanter in Vintia, and began working for him after her graduation. Finally, with the help of her parents she managed to buy the enterprise from her late tutor children. She led several expeditions into the Southern Amadels and into Lisang, mostly searching for artifacts of the Dohasian era.  

The Fellowship of the Ponderer

During an expedition around the same time she found an ancient The Warforged Coin that she gifted to The Ponderer when he was still known as Ponder Stibbons and the two secluded to meet when she return. When she visited the statue she was shocked by the damage and decided to devote her life to study her petrified friend in hope to understand the root cause of the event. She contacted the famous Aderian enchanter, Loddvir Bessel who grew up with Stibbons and together they set up shop near the slowly forming Harbor District.   Maira believed that if Ponder would to ever return to his mortal form, he would be devastated by the damage he caused, and that he would never be capable of afflicting such a horror by his own decision. She invested considerable resources and time helping to rebuild the ruined sections of the city. Most of her initial funding came from her family, but that revenue stream was quickly shut as she racked up expenses and the House Von Fritz did not wish to build the entire city by themselves. The majority of Vintians at the time viewed Stibbons as an Aderian terrorist and the fact that is was indestructible and immovable was only adding insult to injury. She realized that if she has to convince the people that the thing floating in the middle of the district wished no harm upon them. She met with Bethany Lidori and encouraged her to write and publish Stibbons' Memories.   Following the publication of the book, and Loddvir speaking in front of the Famiglie Imperiali, the public opinion began to shift. The two founded the Fellowship of the Ponderer to allow other's to collaborate on their study of the statue. They quickly attracted much of the academic and magical scholar communities, and manage to make several breakthroughs in understanding it's nature. Their publications, along with the fading of the Infernal Storm being linked directly to the Ponderer caused more people joined and more donations and funding to pour through. Maira, through the Fellowship, invested the majority of the money into rebuilding the city and became one of it's major shaping force.
