BACKGROUND

She is a revered storm giant warrior, her family originally hailing from a small islet. Her family gave up their holdings and since their disbanding, she has searched for purpose amid the vast waters of the ocean, traveling along the coasts. Other storm giants regard her violet hair as a sign of being blessed by the gods, a notion she encourages through her devoted worship. Clad in sleek mithral armor and a barnacle-encrusted shield of driftwood and jagged coral, she trains the myriad sea creatures to help her in her search for purpose and her ambitions of eliminating evil throughout the region.
