[B][I][SIZE=4]The Story of Arpluvial[/SIZE][/I][/B]

On a day that smelled like rain and sunshine, a baby girl was born in a treehouse on the outskirts of Brackenridge Forest.

"I shall name her Arpluvial," beamed a lumbering hulk of a man named Jaesim, her father, cradled her, "after the trees and rain from whence she came."

"It's perfect," his wife, Tessapin, smiled with a slight cough.

They lived in complete harmony for about five years before her mother fell ill. It all happened so fast, leaving Jaesim and Arpluvial alone. Her father spent his days as a humble lumberjack and spent his nights doting on his young daughter, telling her amazing stories of her mother's legendary beauty and kindness. On her 16th birthday, her father woke her up extra early.

"I think you're old enough to have these now," he smiled teary-eyed.

"What are these," she opened the box to find a few of Tessapin's things.

"Your mother was more than a beautiful woman, so much more," Jaesim looked into the distance as if he were remembering as Arpluvial pulled a glowing bow out of the box.

"Dad, what are you talking about?"

"She was an amazing archer, famous all the world round for her adventures. Why, she even slayed dragons," he chuckled. "I don't know what she saw in me, I'm a simple lumberjack, but..."

Then the horns blew and the air became suddenly warm.

"Arpy, quick," he grabbed his axe off the wall as smoke trailed in through the window, "I will lower you to the ground, you must run to town."

"What's going on," she grabbed the chest full of belongings and ran to the window. Goblins were pouring into the woods. "Dad, what about you?"

"I stay and fight. Don't worry about me, I will see you in town soon."

He lowered her to the ground and ordered her to run to safety. And run she did. Three days, later, she returned to the forest to find her home and much of the forest burnt to the ground with nary a trace of her father. She searched around for him, but he was nowhere to be found. Did he survive?

Adopted by the nearby town and inspired by her mother, she trained in archery in hopes that nobody would ever suffer loss at the hands of the goblins again. Ten years passed and at the age of 25, she bid farewell to the townspeople who had watched over her.

"Dad, I know you're out there. I'm going to find you," she breathed deeply and walked out of the gates.

Thusly, began her arcane legend...
