No one is really sure how old Wanwa'lasse is. No one knows who her parents were, or if they escaped from the events that lead to her coming to Sandpoint. All that is really known is that she is very, very scared of goblins.
Shalelu found her after killing the half-dozen goblins that had somehow gotten a hold of the young half-elf. She was in a lot of pain and barely alive. Her body was covered in cuts and gashes, the worst one almost spilling her guts out. Shalelu took the bloody girl back to Sandpoint to the church. They managed to save her life, but her body was scarred, and her mind was shattered by the trauma.
She was raised by the wandering elven ranger. Shalelu taught her how to read the lay of the land, to use a bow, even how to dress game she killed. The elf asked her where she was from soon after she recovered. Wanwa'lasse didn't know. The only thing she remembered from before awakening in the church were the goblins taunting her, threatening her, and the pain. Not knowing what else to call her, Shalelu gave her the nickname Wanwa Lasse, Lost Leaf. The young half-elf took as her own and soon those who knew her began calling her Wanwa'lasse or Leaf.
When she was of about twenty-three winters, Shalelu took her on one of her trips and they ran across a band of goblins preparing an ambush. They quickly dispatched them, and Wanwa'lasse handled herself well. After the skirmish, though, she broke down in fear. She cried in terror and clung to her mentor like her life depended on it. After that they returned to Sandpoint and the half-elf stayed behind.
It's been two years and Wanwa'lasse has grown restless. She still fears goblins, but she has slowly begun coping with that fear. She wants to go out again, and intends to ask Shalelu when she is ready for her next trip if she can come.
Hopefully there won't be goblins.
Wanwa'lasse, or Leaf to those who know her well, is a very quiet individual. She maintains a stoic facade, even when most would be beyond themselves with grief or anger. Under the facade, she's kind and only judges people on how they treat others.
The more isolationist members of the community often call her "The Mute". Most of the others think her to be a loner, but a few have managed to get through the walls Wanwa'lasse has constructed around herself to get at the person inside. Ameiko is one of those and has even begin teaching the young woman to how to cook.
Wanwa'lasse is actually very attractive, even with the scars marring her face. Her fine red hair is worn in a simple ponytail to keep it out of the way. Her emerald eyes stand out against the pale skin of her face. She's about average height for a human, 5' 6". She inherited the slim frame and gracefulness of her elven ancestors, but the muscles of her back, arms, and legs are toned from her training with Shalelu. She wears simple clothes that cover her scars, especially the long gash across her belly. She often wears a simple hard leather vest over her tunic and almost always carries her bow, a quiver of arrows, and her hunting knife.
