Helga's mother, Eva, was cast out of - or rather fled at haste - her husband's and her own clan upon Helga's appearence in the world, as it was clear that she had been unfaithful to her proud and rather overbearing husband Ulfor Beartooth. She took with her her elder daughter Anya. The penalty of infidelity often being death if the husband chose so, Eva could not take refuge with her own clan as they rejected her in favour of starting a clan war. Instead, she found shelter with a group of druids in the wilds. Helga was a sickly child, and while her older sister grew up to become a shield maiden and was later reconciled with her father after Eva's death (when Helga was 14), Helga had no such luxury. The druids began her training, but found she had two profound talents: a quick and agile mind, and a talent for singing. She was apprenticed and trained as a bard, a role that suited her aptitude for magic ...
Eva was bequeathed an old but usable bow from an old ranger, and a beautiful harp from her mother. Now she has struck out on her own, she is seeking out her real father ... somewhat hampered by the fact that she doesn't actually know his name, only that he was one of the losalfar that had for some reason taken a liking to her mother one spring when her mother's husband was 'practising vikingry', then inexplicably left.
Helga left Ulfen lands on a ship bound south - as it turns out, a ship not well able to weather the stormy seas ...
Band of Bothers:
Stefnir Ogmundrsson - Druid
We have a storm druid on board. How interesting! I'd rather he didn't frighten the crew so.
Anya Fiendfury - Barbarian
Big sister ... I can't help wondering if she'd rather be rid of me. This was her idea, and yet she seems unhappy to have me aboard. What is her problem? ... me?
Saorise the Ice Maiden - Sorcerer (Ice)
Chilly customer. Clearly some sorcerer on Druid business, and the fates alone know what it might be. She seems to think she's above working like the rest of us ...
Jorgen Ulrichsson Truesight - Inquisitor
I've heard witchhunters aren't nice. He hasn't made a good impression ...
Ragnar Stolen-Voice - Fighter
Poor sod, he has a neck wound that silences him. I hope I never suffer such, my voice is ... everything.
Kurn Thornsson - Cleric of Krakis
Odd man, but a welcome one around. He and his brother are the only other people of elf-blood I have met, and they seem to know ships and sailing well.
Ari Thornsson - Rogue
... and this one, a shifty fellow if ever I met one. What is he so furtive about?
A frail-looking slip of a girl, Helga has bright blue eyes and flowing blond hair and an infectious smile. While she may lack meat on her, when she opens her mouth, her voice is flowing and melodic, and when she sings they say the birds themselves pause to listen.
While her clothes are poor and worn, she carries a well-cared-for bow and quiver, and in a worn case carries a precious harp as if it were made of silver, and calls it 'Eva' as if it were her mother.
