Azaraen, Duchess of Razeth was born into a high influential half-elf family in a secluded community within the Kodar Mountains. Her father Frurors, an honored fighter, died early in her life as a result of a brutal and bloody battle with neighboring Orcs. Her mother, Duchess Raiwen, and younger sister, Yára, still reside in her homeland under high security of the king. Raiwen is an artisan jeweler, crafting renowned pieces of powerful jewelry which has made her name known in surrounding communities. Yára, her sister is currently an apprentice to her Mom, eager to carry on their mother’s legacy.
At the time of her father’s death, Azaraen was young and fair, destined to marry into a noble family and live out her life in peace and prosperity. Fruor’s death however, jilted Azaraen to her core, and she swore revenge upon her father’s killer. Through rumors, Azaraen learned that the orc who had slain her Father, a vulgar brute named Gorgash, continued to ravage unsuspecting villages in the night. Azaraen decided to run away from her family, to seek training as a fighter and extract the vengeance which had clouded her vision. She knew her father’s mentor, a human named Abrham, presided in a coastal town called Sunsword Harbor, about a weeks travel time to the south. Her family had traveled to the time numerous times in Azaraen’s young life, so she was could confidently route her journey. She was planning to contact Abrham, and ask him to take her in as a student, so she too could be a fighter, as fierce as her father.
In preparation for starting a new life, Azaraen began to quietly loot her mother’s jeweling supplies to sell once she was living on her own. For weeks, she prepared her departure, stowing away everything she would need for her impending journey. On the night before she was planning to make her quick departure, she snuck one last time into her mother’s shop. She knew her mother had just acquired some rare and costly jewels, which she would be able to sell for a high price. Her mother, however, had noticed her materials slowly disappearing set up an alarm to catch the whatever was responsible for stealing her missing goods. Azaraen set the trap, alerting her mother the guards to her trespassing. She was forced to disclose her plans to her mother, who listened to her daughter’s feelings with understanding. Raiwen knew her daughter had been deeply affected by Fruror’s death; Azaraen had regarded her father as a hero, and would never accept him death with ease. Raiwen knew Azaraen would never make it as a fighter; she was born with strong wits, but her physical talents were limited. After long thought, she settled a compromise with Azaraen. She would send Azaraen to her brother Zeke, who lived in the highest caves of the Kodar mountains. Raiwen’s family bloodlines ran deep with draconian blood, producing Sorcerers of the highest regard. As a sorcerer trainer, Zeke would be able to take Azaraen in as a student to teach her how to use the magic which ran though her veins.
For years, Azaraen had no contact with her family. She was immersed into a life of training her mind and magical abilities. For over twenty years, Azaraen stayed with her uncle, delving deep into the world of sorcery. When the time came, Azaraen finally emerged from the seclusion of the high caves, ready to take the world on as a trained sorceress, with the promise she held onto in the back of her brain; vengeance for her father.
