Grendolynn came up in the rough, southern backcountry of Taldor. Her father was a desert orc raider who crossed the border from Qadira and took her mother, Genevieve, against her will. Her father was killed by her mother’s then husband, Gaston. The rape brought about a pregnancy, and when Grendolynn was born Gaston left the family. Grendolynn was the second child, she has a much older sister by Gaston, named Marie. Genevieve was a kind soul and refused to blame Grendolynn for what had happened. Instead she loved her like she would any other daughter. Marie on the other hand resented her, for “driving her father away”. Eventually Genevieve remarried and had another two children, these sons. Marie married young, when Grendolynn was about eight years old and moved away. After that, the amount of tension in the household diminished considerably.

Grendolynn grew up watching the goat herds and doing the hard work of a peasant on their homestead. She was always the outsider whenever they went into town, but on the family’s remote property she was just another one of them. Her step-father Pierre was a former soldier - a scout. He taught Grendolynn many lessons during her adolescence. Hunting, tracking, fighting and how to move silently were all gifts he passed on to her. About the time she was sixteen, Grendolynn couldn’t take the monotony of the countryside anymore. She wanted to get out and see the world. Telling her family as much, she made her goodbyes with them and took the tools she would need to survive in the wild. They were sad to see her go, and Pierre grumbled they’d have to hire a hand to pick up her work, but they knew nothing they could do would keep her there.

From then on, Grendolynn started wandering Taldor, living off the land and generally just exploring. She has dreams of having a few adventures of her own, but so far she’s just been content to wander and see all of the great big world that she can lay eyes on. Sometimes she misses home, but she never really belonged there. She never really belongs anywhere, at least not yet. But Grendolynn keeps chasing the tug of destiny, knowing there’s something big out there for her.
