Backstory

Dil Husty grew up in the port town of Fuhino on the northern coast of the Serpent Sea. She spent her youth fishing and sailing - and generally getting into mischief. Uncle Mikham, a tavern keeper, nurtured her musical talent, and, taught her a few arcane secrets and some lore.

Dil hired on as a lookout / deckhand on the good ship Windbreaker, whose captain sometimes traded and sometimes raided. He styled himself a Gentleman of Fortune. She hoped one day to be a Lady of Fortune, but her career was interrupted during her twenty second summer. One night, after Windbreaker ended a raucous port visit to Tarad'am, a notorious Ship Folk pirate ship called The Scarlet Pearl overtook and boarded them - putting all to the sword. She was the last one standing, beset by saber and dagger at the starboard rail. Unleashing her final arcane reserves in a burst of thunder, she went over the side rather than be taken and sold into slavery – as they had threatened to do to her.

She swam for her life. Two days later she washed ashore near O’pola. A pair of triton scouts had found her - a Surfacer - swimming out to sea under the moonlight. They guided her landward. Losing her shipmates – her second family – was devastating blow. Sitting on the focs'l of an evening, leading the rest of the crew in songs, was no longer possible. Afraid to bring trouble to her family she traveled north, away from the sea, earning room and board by performing at the odd tavern, or, by persuading folks to share their food with her in exchange for a story or song.

She joined a wagon caravan heading North. The caravan master wore a brooch on his cloak: the dragon-headed ouroboros, gold on black. He was recruiting in the name of Forever and Beyond. Arriving in Sheplyn, she joined with Sargas of Tor-Elan, Tsun Azur, Crow, and Morgan to help Lord Sumter sort out his problems in Honedaxe, a seaside port town. It seemed like a good idea at the time. One day she’ll pay back the slavers who destroyed her ship and killed her shipmates. One day...
