Délia was found left in a basket at the outskirts of the village of Kassen. Although everyone agreed that a child could not be left to die, there were some worries that she would grow up to be a monster. These fears were unnecessary, though, as she would become a quite good-natured young woman, and with her natural charisma quickly became liked by almost the whole town.
Unlike most youths, who were taught in the trade of their parents, Délia was taught a little by everyone. From the retired wizard to the priest of the town and the rangers who visited the town form time to time, she learnt a little of everything, her knowledge of different fields supporting each other. However, where she really shined was music, and she often played the organ at the town's church, and was regarded one of the best singers of the town.
While life was good, Délia was plauged by the fact that half-orcs age faster and thus die faster than other races. A naturally curious person, every day spent in the village felt like a day wasted, a day without seeing new places, a day closer to the grave. In time, she developed a quite strong interest in all matters concerning death, dancing on the line of what could be considered healthy. To ease the pressure on her soul, he started writing funeral dirges and other kinds of sad, lamenting music.
While this kept her from decending into depression, it did not quench her wanderlust, and he repeatedly expressed her interest in travelling and seeing the world. However, the village elders considered her too unexperienced to for that. But this year, she has volunteered to go retrieve the Everflame from the crypt. After that, they would no longer have excuses to make her stay...
While of average height from the viewpoint of an average human, Délia is quite short for half-orc standards, with a less pronounced musculature than most of his race. However, she makes up for this with her good looks, green skin and tusks only adding to the charm.
Délia is a pleasant personality who gets along with all kinds of people. Part of this can be attributed to the fact that she is very accepting of different viewpoints, rarely feeling the need to judge people. While mostly level-headed, she often is a little impatient and might not take the necessary time for planning before acting.
While interested in matters concerning death, she is also quite intrested in avoiding it herself, and thus maintains a casual reverence for all kinds of gods of death or healing. This is made possible by her quite unorthodox "pick and mix" appoarch at religion, praying to whoever she feels fits for the situation, and obeying the tenets which she feels are convenient.
Despite her slightly morbid interests, she is actually quite cheerful, actively trying to keep from letting herself to fall into brooding, though her humor might be a little dark for some peoples tastes.
