The Treachery of Thronehold
Tiefling Assassin with a huge ridiculous sword. She has a tail.
Everything seemed perfect. They had a perfect wedding that ended up being the most talked about event amongst the nobility in Aundair. Shortly afterwords the bride came with child, and with the promise of an heir growing in her belly the couple inherited the bride’s father’s estate. Everything was perfect… until the child was born.
No one is sure whose blood is the tainted blood that cause their child to be born an abomination, but one this was certain, the family could not allow the public to know that some where in the bloodline an ancestor made a pact with devils. They raised the child, sawing off her Tiefling horns as they grew, and hid her tail with bulky clothes. They would have cut that off too if they could stomach cutting flesh of flesh, or risk having an outsider know. Meanwhile sabotage and subterfuge threatened the noble family, more specifically agents being bought out by competitive noble houses. Sick of dealing with with the “intricacies” of House Thuranni, and House Phiarlan, and also coming to the sad realization that their daughter’s features were getting harder and harder to hide the more she aged, the couple made a decision.
They contacted a Nightswift eyrie, and made a deal. To secure the loyalty of the Nightswifts, they killed two birds with one stone. News of their daughter’s death from Cholera circulated quickly, the tragedy earning a moment of sympathy from the other houses.
While Crow knows who her family is, she does not know them personally. Does she wish she had a different life? Does she romanticize about the if’s and could be’s? Maybe, at one time, shortly after she was taken by the scary feathered monster in the night. But that was a long time ago, when Crow was young, before she earned her place with her new Kenku family, shortly after she received her new name, and before she sold a part of herself to the shadows.
Crow was taken from her home in Lemish to Shadoweye’s flock in Starilaskur which became her new home.
Recently Crow has been given a great opportunity to serve her flock. She was chosen to help establish a new eyrie in the city of Thornehold.
