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 (LG/NG half-elf Inquisitive Detective Zealot Vigilante [Reformation inquisition] 19/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 haunting her with their voices that she alone can hear. So Pearl became an oracle, loving this role more than a bard's life.
After marrying her beloved, she undertook the chronicler path, seeing it as fit to her personality. She however held the "Bardess" surname to introduce herself to new friends.
Currently, she's retired with her husband in her own private demiplane, watching the growth and career of their sons, Fhago the Panther Knight (NG Celestial Bloodrager/Battle Shaman/Celestial Disciple/Champion) and Jojet the Dinosaur Drummer (LG Emissary Cavalier of the Beast/Boaster Skald/Mammoth Rider/Marshal), destined to become the greatest heroes of the Middle Continent.
