About Betony Avilia

Betony grew up in a fey tradition that would make her seem quite the wild child by civilized standards. She learned to fend for herself at a young age and eventually wandered away from home to truly live as one in the forest. She developed a close friendship with all the inhabitants of the forest, be they fey, animal, or humanoid. She helped and protected all those she called friend as long as fairness and respect were maintained in forest. Eventually the curiosity that led her away from home led her out of the forest with her best friend, Thistledown, a silvery-white wolf.

Out of the forest, what she found shocked her. She witnessed too much brutality and violence. Her and Thistledown dedicated themselves to protecting those in need. They found that caravan escort duty allows them to protect those facing violence and still travel to sate their travel lust. Not having much money sense, she typically works for the food, fires at night, and the friendships found on the trail - thus making her a popular guard with both the merchants and fellow guards. As a guard, she typically serves as an outrider, scouting rough terrain and thick copses in advance of the caravan.

To many she seems naive, but it is that she sees the world through a different filter. Like the fey, she enjoys many of the smaller joys that can be found in life, but her ire is fierce when raised by injustice to others or a disregard for nature. She is often spotted on the edge of farms or woodlands, riding her wolf.

She wears an ancient-looking set of banded-mail that has tarnished to a deep bronze-green. This she acquired after a foggy night in the forest, whence she awoke in a glade next to the ancient remains of a gnome wearing the armor and carrying the a strange lance and a green axe all covered in a mat of brambles. She took up the mantle of this old warrior, whom she called 'The Bramble Knight' The lance, she calls Nettle, is a fire-hardened entwined oak-branch that coils and wraps upon itself providing it with unusual strength. It flies a banner of a white wolf and purple rider in front of a dark pine forest with a large moon rising from behind. The axe, she calls razor-leaf, and comes in handy in close quarters.
