Born the half-elf daughter of a Keleshite father and a forlorn elf mother, Emilia grew up in Osirion at the city of Shiman-Sekh after the small settlement to the south where she had been born in was burnt down and destroyed in a raid by the local cultists of Lamashtu when she was only 4 years old.
Though she never found out that both her parents were ardent followers of Sarenrae, she learned the ways of the faith from her adoptive father and savior, a compassionate but somewhat stern Taldan man named Darek Lormaine who had settled a small orphanage with the help of his companion, an elf of Kyonin named Al'naria.
Years passed with her new family and Emilia eventually grew up into a fine young woman with a slight bit of a hot-blooded attitude. Having heard of her parents' fate, she then knew what she'd want to do with her life. Taking with her the scimitar, robes and holy symbol that once belonged to her parents, she bade farewell to her adoptive family and set out to explore the world, intending to bring help to those in need of it and to fight against evil when she needed.
