Background story:

Tabby was born into a poor lifestyle. Though she never really knew her father she was very attached to her mother, one could say they were more like sisters than mother and daughter. Tabby was born on a cold winter evening in an old semi-usable wagon that was a part of a small traveling carnival.

The Clyde Brothers Carnival was owned by a pair of scheming swindlers always looking for easy money, but they had a sharp tongue and quick wit.

Her mother was a part of an acrobatic troupe and Tabby was to join when she was old enough. She studied hard but was always distracted by the carnival mage, a senile old man named Praxis.

Praxis was a member of the Order of the Rose Sorcerous Society, he showed Tabby several simple tricks but she never liked the illusions, she wanted to learn charms to entice the audience to watch her. Praxis was fun to be with, he always an easy mark; you had to admire his perseverance.

Praxis even recommended her into the Order because as he, would say, “The girl is high spirited but has talent; Just got to curb that chaotic nature”. The Order accepted her on a trial basis (at least until she was of age).

Tabby came too really like Praxis as a father figure. And when Praxis died Tabby felt a deep sorrow. She wouldn’t talk or smile for a nearly year and cried almost every night. Her closest friend was gone.
It wasn’t until Tabby got the chance to be in the show with her mother she smiled again. Tabby grew even closer to her mother after Praxis’ death.

Tabby really enjoyed being part of the show. Performing feats of acrobatics, escape artist routines, and even tried the tightrope.
There was one show Tabby finally got to be in with her mother’s troupe, the knife throwing. In the troupe there were two brothers, twins actually, that both liked Tabby and as luck (or un-luck) they were the knife throwers for the act. Well, one show just before the act was to start Tabby was off with another fellow, a cute kid (maybe 16 or 17 years of age) and loving every minute of it I might add. The brothers found Tabby and the other boy kissing behind the tiger cage and boy were they pissed. Of course Tabby had no idea she was caught, at least until they went out to perform.

The knives were a little close for comfort that show until one hit right in the shoulder. This was Tabby’s first taste of pain.
Tabby tried hard to make amends with the brothers but they didn’t want to hear about it. Tabby was a little heartbroken, after all she did like the two and her romp was more to make them jealous (as a joke) than to really hurt them.

The two brothers fighting were bad for business and the Clyde brothers kicked them out of the carnival. Tabby pleaded to let them stay but who listens to a little girl anyway.

Time went on and Tabby grew bigger and soon was performing with her mother in the troupe doing stunts and even filling in as a clown now and then (No puns please). That’s when it happened.

The caravan was attacked on a long stretch of road between Egorian and Westcrown, taking everything. The Clyde brothers were killed and Tabby and her mother were wounded and left for dead.

Tabby was the first to awaken and upon seeing her mother she felt pain unlike anything she felt before but thanks to the gods she was still alive.

Tabby scrounged around the battle scene for any food or money that she could use. All she found was the Rapier that one her admirers used in a sword display sideshow (surprising it was left behind).

Tabby and her mother traveled south for days with little to eat until they found themselves at the city of Westcrown.

Having very little money, they were forced to live in an old run down shack in the Parego Dospera part of town. Tabby’s mother never fully recovered from her wounds and infection set in while on the road and she was always ill.

They needed money to survive so Tabby’s mother sought work wherever she could and Tabby was left to fend for herself while she was away. Tabby learned to live on the streets taking small bits of food from street merchants and the like.

It was a warm evening when she saw her mother “working” at a local tavern. Dancing for money. Tabby glanced in the window and was mesmerized by her mother’s grace on the stage. Tabby was quickly chased from the window once discovered and not a moment too soon. After she left, her mother began her “work” with the gentlemen patrons.

Tabby’s mother became pregnant and gave birth to a boy. With no money to feed him and the illness getting worse she was forced to rely on Tabby to steal what she could to keep them going.

It was Tabby’s 18th birthday when Tabby got a gift from her mother, a beautiful violet “dancing” dress. Tabby tried it on and it fit perfectly, her mother did up her hair, eyes, and nails. There stood a half-sized woman where only a child stood a moment before.
Tabby asked her mother what to do now. Tabby’s mother fought back tears and said to “dance” for the gentlemen and be nice to them and they will be nice to you.

Tabby knew what she had to do and that was the last time she saw her mother. She died that night from the illness. Tabby and her baby brother were alone now, she tried her best to take care of him but it was too much.

Tabby took her brother (at the age of 6) and headed to the orphanage associated with Cayden Cailean just about the only decent house of worship she could get access to. There she left her brother in the hopes he will have a loving home and a warm bed to sleep in. Tabby left like a thief in the night.

Tabby remembered the advice she got from her mother before she died “Be true to yourself and never let anyone take away your smile”. Tabby began her work at the same tavern she first saw her mother dancing all those years ago.

Tabby mourned her mother’s passing even till now, several years later. She never knew what came of her brother nor what his new name is She only knew him as “Podarious” or Podo as she liked to call him, and his unique birthmark that looked like a tiny spade on the back of his neck.
After working the dance for a few years Tabby got to be quite popular She has been known to do a spell or two to entice a larger tip from the patrons but nothing to fancy (she didn't want to let on that she knew magic. (That was her little secret).

Tabby made good money at the taverns, but she only kept enough to keep fed and keep a leaky roof over her head. The remainder of her earnings went to the church of Cayden Cailean orphanage to finance the care for her brother. She would always leave the donation anonymously.
Years passed and Tabby’s brother was no longer at the orphanage, she tried to find out what happened but never got any information about his adopted parents. Tabby continued to contribute to the church regularly the only way she could think of to repay their kindness and secrecy.
The bar Tabby mainly worked got to be quite popular even attracting the attention of the criminal underworld of Westcrown. It was about the time she was going the see the tavern owner about her pay when she heard a scuffle going on inside. She cracked the door to peek in.

A man pointed a hand x-bow at the owner’s head while two other men held him down “twang” and he fell over dead in a pool of blood. Tabby shrieked and of course got the attention of the killers. They tried to grab Tabby before she could get away. During the struggle was when she noticed one of the henchmen was half-elven and had a spade shaped birthmark on the back of his neck. “Podo?” she cried but he didn’t even recognize her. Tabby got away that night

Tabby never heard about what happened from that night. She moved to another tavern to work and found a temporary refuge in the old ruins. She was soon discovered by some her fellow dancers heading home from an evening’s work. And after some short conversions she overheard them saying that there is a bounty on her and they should turn her in.
Tabby didn’t want any part of that she was carefree but not stupid, she knew that she was be framed for the murder the assassins would make sure of that. Tabby needed a new hideout so she eventually in the employ of the Vitaron family.

Tabby liked it there, it was small enough to not be noticed, and they seemed to have a hold on the street urchins of the city (common pick pockets and Grifters The family never asked for much but was a safe house when Tabby got in trouble again and again and again.
On Tabby’s birthday, she received an unmarked present at her home. Inside was a gold heart shaped locket.

When Tabby opened the Locket, a phantasm image of her mother appeared. It said:

“As close as we were even I had secrets, Praxis was my teacher and I too was an illusionist, your magical talents obviously come from me and your high spirit is from your father. I was once a great performer before you were born and you have inherited my talents. I tried to get away from the sins of my past in the Carnival but it was too late. Find my killers stop the crime families; and finally, keep this locket close to your heart and I will be there too. Be true to yourself and never let anyone take away your smile.”

Tabby cried for hours that night and realized that someone knows about her past (someone from the carnival) and that someone knew her.
For the next several years Tabby attempted to find the sender of the gift. Until one night while leaving the tavern she was working at, she realized she was being followed, when she tricked her trailers and she “got the jump on them”. After a little “female persuasion” she heard what she wanted. She was a loose end to murder several years earlier and it was her brother attempting to send them on the wrong track to keep her safe.

She asked where her brother is now and they replied, “Probably dead sent into exile for turning against the Family”.

Tabby let the thieves go that night and began to look for a way to end her troubles.
