About Bardess

Pearl dedicated to the theoretical studies of magic in her youth, frustrated because her parents won't let her become a bard. She became an eager researcher about all forms of magic.
In her thirties, the encounter with Sarnakand the Magnificent, Purifier of the Redemptress (NG half-elf Ravener Hunter Sanctified Slayer Inquisitor 16/Mysterious Avenger Swashbuckler 3/Stranger 6) made her more self-confident and her Charisma increased a little. She had a vision of The Noble Prince and His Companions, the characters of a legend she had loved since her childhood years. They became her spirit guides, giving her confidence and sometimes taking over her mind and voice in unexpected moments.
Currently, Pearl is retired with her husband in her own private demiplane, watching the growth and career of their sons, Fhago the Panther Knight (NG Divine Hunter [Eagle domain]/Guardian; Mythic Eldritch Heritage: Stormborn; Raging Blood) and Jojet the Hidden Singer (LG/NG Teisatsu Vigilante/Trickster), destined to become the greatest heroes of the Middle Continent.
