Unaware of the circumstances surrounding her birth, Carla grew up as an orphan in the bad part of Riddleport called Lubbertown. In order to survive she had to learn the hard way, and learn it fast. This earned her the nickname 'the Profane', for her intimidating verbal presence. Her right eye and ear are missing and horrible burn scars cover her entire body, except for the left side of her face.
Having travelled with a pirate crew as a mercenary before joining the Society, she has seen her share of lands and cultures. Because of her half-orc heritage she was the target of scorn and abuse in nearly every situation. This has inspired her to hone her skills in insulting people back: for this reason she has kept a journal on the various insults thrown her way. She is always only one page away from retaliating with the most horrible swearwords known to man and any.
Homeless children would often come to her for food and protection, knowing that even though she had a hard demeanor, she also possessed a rare sense of caring responsibility towards children. Unable to bear the harsh conditions and extreme poverty of her hometown she decided to join the Sczarni, at that time a faction within the Pathfinder Society. She did this in search of means to help the less fortunate in Riddleport, and save them from a life of piracy... or slavery. She was married to Captain Deremin of Besmara, a river pirate and cleric of the pirate goddess, by shackles law for a year. After this she settled in Nerosyan, which has proven itself to have plenty of business activity due to the commotion around the world wound. One day, she hopes to finish an encyclopedia on profanity while tending to an orchard of black roses. And sitting on a pile of gold. Until that time she'll serve out her duties as Venture Captain.
