Elena was found orphaned upon the steps leading to a temple, way down in one of the southern kingdoms near the great desert. She was raised by the priests, who brought her up to be their instrument of sacrifice, a virgin to spill blood in the name of their dark gods. She killed her first man in the age of fourteen and was given enchanted fore-arm-blades that never blunt or dull as a reward. A few years later she had grown into a beautyful woman and a deadly fighter. Now equipped with perfectly fitting armour parts and sprouting blades everywhere, she was an embodiment of death himself. At a great ritual in the temple, however, it was the priesthood, who had to let their blood at the bladepoint of Elena. Maybe it was the pleaing look of her would-be victims that changed her heart. Whatever it was, Elena decided that day to end the dark rites of the priests once and for all.
