Age: 215
Gender: Female
Race: Alfar
Birthplace: Carac Lalaith
Deity: Aten, Tyr and Illmatyr

Biography:
Born in Carac Lalaith, around three hundred years ago, she lived quite a blissful life as a child,
the daughter of a poet, and a famed soldier of the time, in a fine house in the center of the city.
Aged twelve, she was identified as a warrior, of the Maethor-souled class of elves. Taken to Carac Megil, the City of Swords, known for it's various schools of warfare, and weapon foundries, to a military academy near the city,
She was trained in the art of swordsmanship and war, her trainers
pushing her to become a well-oiled part of a larger war-machine.
She became skilled with the two-handed blades of the Alfar, alongside their shorter blades.
She left the academy some time later, aged forty, in the armies of the Alfar.


She served in the campaigns in Brython, against the human tribes, with their chariots and horseback javelin-throwers.
Etwairien then was involved in the campaigns into Estivon and Nuihadnas, fighting the wild elves, and humans.
She was in the battles to take the human ports on the shore, before fighting the wild elves inland, in Nuihadnas.
After this, for around forty five years, Etwairien fought to try to keep down the wild elves, in the name of the Dominion, being part of the force training local auxiliary forces in Estivon. During this time, she was injured, returning to Carac Lalaith, to see her family, recovering.

While at home, in the city, she became re-interesting in poetry and song, learning various languages, and joining one of the academies there. She spent years there, as she recovered. While at the academy, she became friends with a poet, before marrying him around two years later. She had a child during this time, a boy, and she spent her time caring for it for around twelve years, until it was taken to Carac Megil itself, to an academy.

She packed her things, setting out for Carac Falas, a port on the edge of the Isles. She took a boat to the Dragon Coast, travelling among the peoples of it.
A few years later, she travelled with a caravan to Sida, spending around two years there, learning its language and history.
Finally, she arrived in Occitan, travelling between the city-states, learning their languages, and accents. Recently, she travelled south from Occitan through the Vale, arriving in Sanctimonia.
She arrived in Surna a few days ago, to learn about its inhabitants, and its history.

Skills:
Etwairien is experienced in the use of the two-handed swords of the Alfar swordsmen, as well as the shorter blades they use. She is moderately good at using a bow, and is able in warfare, due to her past.
She's skilled in various languages, such as Occitanian, and Sidan, and the languages of the Highlands.

Inventory:
Alfar Steel Scale Mail
Two-Handed steel sword, silver-edged.
Alfar Steel helm, with blue plume.
Short sword, with writing down its side.
Bag of coins, (200 shillings)
Bread, waterskin, rabbit meat.

No. Mithril is a ridiculously difficult metal to have crafted and is considered the best nonmagical metal available. I think you are getting ahead of yourself. This character needs to be toned the fuck down on equipment.

I won't deny that Mithril is incredibly strong. I was iffy about it too. But it would be the material the members of the Alfar warrior class would wear.

If Mithril isn't okay, we could always say that she wasn't allowed to take the mithril scale armor (very expensive, belongs to the nation) with her.

The bio is primarily about her experience and training. The items list has mithril armor, a steel sword, and a silver shortsword. Sorry, but I don't think you're ready for this.

And lo, the equipment is toned down. And it's largely centred on her experience, so it can actually be justified, so people don't just go, 'BUT, OH, WHERE DO YOU KNOW THIS FROM'.
