Personal history

Mordollwen was born in the Shardscape, an Avariel of beauty fit for legend, but with a heart of darkness that took advantage of her appearance to influence the will of others. Born in darkness, she had a natural affinity to it, eventually learning how to use it to her advantage in whatever way possible. Eventually she came across the mysterious entity known as 'The Shard Keeper', who offered to take her in, protect her from the dangers of the Shardscape, and teach her how to fight and survive on her own. The wisdom of the 'Shard Keeper' taught her many things but sadly Mordollwen, 'Dark As Night' as the Shard Keeper called her, quickly realized that she possessed an advantage over other creatures; She was beauty incarnate. Her greed took over and she became vain beyond measure. Wandering the vastness of the Shardscape she made many friends, but many more enemies, using creatures as if they were puppets made for her own vices. It was not long until she found herself chased by those she tricked, begging the Shard Keeper himself to protect her. So he did, but that would never teach Mordollwen the fault of her actions. What Mordollwen considered to be the most horrible punishment imaginable was to lose her beauty, which the Shard Keeper took away. With his magic, he turned her fingernails the color of charcoal, her skin the color of man, her hair fell and became thin and dry, her eyes lost their brightness and became pitch-black, and as if that was not enough, her body was scarred by horrible tattoos carved on her through eldritch energy. The physical pain was much less than the mental trauma that she felt, but she accepted her punishment, realizing her faults and carrying her scars from that day on to remind her of her sins. Leaving the Shardscape behind her, she hopes to one day find a way to make the Shard Keeper proud of her, and regain his approval.
