Bio:

Ness was born to half-elf parents in a remote half-elf town outside of Nybor. Because she lived among all half-elves, and Nybor is rather half-breed friendly, Ness has no idea that half-elves are considered bastards and unacceptable.

Ness had a sister growing up, who one day disappeared after entering the neighboring forest. Ness searched for her sister every day, and the town eventually decided that the sister must have been carried off by wild animals. To this day, Ness hates all animals, in particular ones that can harm people.

As Ness continued to wander into the forest (still hoping to find her sister) and hone her animal hunting skills, she met Shalelu Andosana, a wandering ranger. Shalelu taught Ness the ways of the Ranger… how to fight, hunt, stealth, and kill.

As Ness got older, she got bored of her hometown, and found her way to Sandpoint. At first the town was wary of the half-elf, which was a surprise to Ness. But she soon proved useful at her ability to acquire meat (via hunting), and ended up finding a job at Two Knight Brewery. The Brewery had the perfect location – right next to the forest.

Ness loved the idea of turning grains into liquid, and that into beer. It was magical to her. She started dabbling in alchemy in her spare time.

To become better at alchemy, Ness started reading a lot of books. Through books, Ness also discovered a love of linguistics, and pretty much anything else that can be studied in a book.

During The Troubles, Ness tried to help people escape when the church burned down. She was horribly burnt, particularly on her face. This makes her even more offputting for being a half-elf. She often forgets about her scars, and finds herself in diplomatic situations when she really shouldn’t be.

Ness is neutral good, but fairly close to neutral. Her alliance lie in the following order: her family > her party > townsfolk of Sandpoint > other half-elves/elves. Ness is more enamoured of elves as opposed to humans, as her first interaction with an elf, Shalelu, was very favorable. For this reason, Ness has a soft spot for Nastunye (despite her questionable moral choices).
