First Sorceress Glenna Carilyn Areva Stormraven
A Rise to PowerGlenna's power was apparent from a young age. Regardless, her parents held her to normal educational standards, albeit taking into account their status as banished nobility. As a young teenager, she essentially ran away from home to attend a more specifically magical school. This went along with the utter rejection of her heritage as the heir of Clan Stormguard. Needless to say, there was some tension in the family. She graduated early and quickly rose through the ranks of magic users, from an apprentice to owning her own consulting business. Glenna elected not to become a Wizard Companion to any local heroes, instead choosing to offer her talents to the more ordinary citizens around her. Her particular specialty was assisting young ladies to reach a happy ending, going by the standard definition.
The Fateful InvasionEmperor Togarmus of Jovirenia attempted to invade Maraphel. The attack was not entirely out of nowhere, since Maraphel was a member of the United Benevolent Nations and Jovirenia was a staunch confederate of the Council of Evil, but it was unexpected. Not the least of which because Jovirenia isn't exactly next to Maraphel. Glenna was in the town of Donebar, handling a case, when a series of portals opened up. Lacking all other options, and there being no Heroes immediately at hand, she handled the attack herself. This was not easy, despite her power, and she resorted to several more creative solutions, including making use of some natural sulfur deposits and her own skill at potions making. The forces of Maraphel were quickly occupied elsewhere, dealing with a series of devices that Togarmus meant to use to obliterate the local population. This left Glenna as the only one directly engaged in fighting Togarmus himself, who despite his many failings was nonetheless brave enough to lead the main charge himself. He drove her back to Mount Kalga, which proved to be his ultimate failing. Togarmus drove Glenna to the vaults of the mountain. The Staff of Clarity had not chosen a user in some time, so everyone was surprised when it responded to Glenna so easily. Glenna being not at all humble or the kind of person to be in awe of great power, quickly adapted to the Staff and wielded it adeptly. Togarmus was cast down, and Glenna was a hero, in the truer sense of the word.
The Trouble With FameGlenna was named First Sorceress of Maraphel for her efforts in the battle, and rightly so. Initially, she settled into the role with ease. She was young, beautiful, and smart enough to wield these traits to success with the press. She performed her new duties with aplomb, and performed her old job as purveyor of magical aid with greater success than ever before, thanks to the staff. But with success comes a lot of people demanding that you do things for them. In this case, Glenna's clients demanded greatness from her. Glenna frequently disagreed with the nature of that greatness, and to be fair, so would most reasonable people. Even those with good reason to ask her for help, for health concerns or to save a loved one from villains, things would always take a turn and they'd end up asking her for a better nose or wealth beyond measure. Her clients got greedy, and Glenna grew more and more irate. Deborah Clement was the final stroke. Deborah had attracted the attentions of a duke who was possessed of an unfortunate face, and she had the bright idea to ask Glenna to make the man more attractive. Feeling a bit vindictive, Glenna did exactly this. She made the man a dazzling example of male attractiveness, and in the wake of all his new suitors, Deborah was soon crowded out. She was angry, and confronted Glenna. At some point during the exchange, tempers were lost, comments were made, and Deborah was turned into the world's first werefrog. A court case ensued, during which Glenna's name was dragged through the metaphorical mud. In the end, she kept her position as First Sorceress, but with some adjustments. Since she had committed an act that was argued to be Evil, but had a history of being Good, she was sentenced to exist in the odd point between the two callings. To satisfy this, Glenna moved to an Evil location (the Forest of Pain) but would continue to have her old job description as a purveyor of happy endings, a Good career. (By her own admission, the move was to put as much distance between her and her clients as possible, so she really got the best possible outcome.) In the days since, she has saved Berniton from a mad, power-hungry gnome, and also hunted down a realtor who made a mistake on the listing of her house. The two points are, in fact, related incidents. It is also worth noting that Deborah Clement now works as Glenna's assistant.

Towards Glenna Stormraven
Glenna, as the older sister, was meant to take charge of the clan when she grew up. Instead, she became a sorceress. This worked out since Morna liked being in charge of the clan and was good at it, but the rather abrupt shift in expected roles caused something of a strain and they avoided each other for several years.
