Arta was born in the elven sanctuary of Kyonin. Her father, Sirion, was elected as the envoy to Brevoy (a beleaguered state north of the river kingdoms). The king of Brevoy, Noleski Surtova, was weary of Sirion's compassion for the commoner and secretly ordered him assassinated. The loss of Sirion was hard on Arta, having lost her mother as a young child back in Kyonin. She vowed to avenge her father by upholding his ideals. She would become a local barrister and fight the corruption of the Brevoy aristocracy in order to foster the freedom and prosperity all people deserve. By night she hunts for evidence to identify and confront her father's assassin. She joined Liberty's Edge and headed to Absolom in order to petition the creation of a new lodge in Brevoy, as well as to seek aid for her people.
