To Seek the Stars
5'11 athletic, well built human female with partially braided red hair. She wears ornate banded mail armor and wields a greatsword.
Posessing a talent for negotiating, Shae’s physical appearence is equally impressive. Standing at a tall 5’11 and weighing in at 135 pounds, Shae carries herself with confidence and determination in her tasks. Long partially braided red hair accents her piercing eyes which seem to be able to read the emotions of those she gazes upon. In the field she wears an ornate set of banded mail armor which was a gift from her uncle. The armor is polished steel and bears the symbol of Carthon on its paulderons. Several weapons including a greatsword are sheathed across her back. When not in the field Shae tends to wear merchant robes in black or white. She is adept in socializing with others – a lesson learned from her parents. When needed Shae can alter her social tactics to fit the situation gaining others’ confidence and trust. Her smooth and soft voice has won her many battles and is her true weapon.
Shae traveled with Raegar, Hoxton, Ilphvrae, and others for a long period of time before a disagreement erupted regarding a mission to clear the bonemurk of undead. The party had aquired a large contingent of prisoners who were mostly the former ruling families of Garmol incarcerated for their handling of a dispute between nobles and commoners. While the majority of the party either saw the nobles as cannon fodder in the bonemurk mission or did not care, Shae sympathized with them and proposed to join them occupying the bonemurk and its two fortresses (Greymist and Bonegate) as their new home and place of power. The nobles readily agreed and the rest of the party left. Shae’s immediate goal is to head back to Ashby and lead the nobles families who are living there as guests and return them to the Bonemurk.
Synopsis: A member of a prominent merchant family from the Southern free city-state of Carthon. Her parents were killed while traveling when Shae was only 12 years old. Her uncle, a career military man took in Shae as his ward and allowed her to train at her insistance in the arts of warfare.
Shae Wynn Vanderin was born to Avastra and Tomlin Vanderin in an independent small coastal city (Carthon). The Vanderins were part of the upper middle merchant class and were extravagant socialites in the cities upper crust. Having no other children, they took their time to train Shae to be a good negotiator in hopess of her becomming a savvy tradeswoman and continuing the family business. They were owners of a small estate within the city and owned a warehousing and importing exporting business that was subsidised by members of the local government. One evening just after Shae’s 12th birthday Shae’s parents were killed by bandits while traveling abroad in a foreign city. Shae was given to her uncle, a knight and career military man as his ward. The family business was sold and Shae began to latch on to the regimented ways of the military which gave her focus and kept her mind off of the tragedy of her parents death. Her uncle was more than happy to indulge her, for he had no children of his own and was surprised and impressed with her early abilities in learning combat prowess and field tactics. 12 more years passed and Shae decided to branch out on her own, take what she learned and carve forth her destiny in the lands to the North.
