Yezela is, as of yet, formally untrained in her shamanist abilities. She isnt a spell caster of fighter in any respect. She is a simple performer; she sings, dances and tells stories. Yezela has also been reasonably educated; she can read, write and has an aptitude for poetry. She will often take old stories and retell them in her own words. Yezela has a very good memory and whenever she hears a new story, or finds something worthy of telling a story of, shell lock away in her mind until she can work with it.Personality
Yezela is an upbeat, optimistic girl. Shes very well read and well traveled, but sometimes she tends to be a bit flighty and ditsy. There is an innocence about her, but she knows shes beautiful and often uses it to her advantage and quietly enjoys all the attention it gets her. Being alone on the road has been quite nerve wracking for her, so she would be grateful to find a friend.
Alignment: Lawful Good
Yezelas mother, Mirael, was a young entrepreneur born of Haven. Mirael became a traveling merchant when she was only in her twenties and made a fortune with sharp business skills. She traveled across Lodoss with only hired bodyguards for company and the occasional wanderer needing a ride on her wagon. One such traveler was a handsome elf by the name of Azala. Mirael and Azala had a fling, and once he reached his destination, they parted ways.
Two months later, Mirael figured out she was pregnant. She didnt care to find Azala again, she was determined to raise her child on her own. Mirael continued her travels until late in her third trimester when she stopped in a small village in Valis and bore her daughter there. When Yezela was three months old, Mirael was on the road again.
Yezela has spent her life traveling with her mother and learning her trade. She is very well educated and took a liking to poetry soon after she learned to read and write. When Yezela was fifteen, a bard began traveling with her mother for a few months. He taught her the ancient stories of wars and heroes and gods. Yezela surprised him when she wrote her own versions of the stories. He corrected some of the details in her rewritten versions and began teaching her to use some of his instruments. However, after some personal issues with Mirael, he left the caravan and went his own way. Mirael noticed the impression he left on her and began hiring tutors and bards to help teach her daughter music and stories. Though she was hoping Yezela might become a merchant herself, she encouraged her daughters new interest in becoming a bard.
Yezela began performing at stops she made with her mother, but didnt find her courage to set out on her own until soon after she turned twenty-two. Yezela has been traveling alone for less than a year now, and since her mother is traveling, its been hard to track her down.
