On the Free Merchant ship Coral Spear, Bell Plavix captained her fairly and strongly. Such strength attracted the affections of the First Mate Harvon Teekan. Their whirlwind romance gave rise to a child, a daughter they named Divina.
Growing up on the seas certainly had its benefits. She learned many talents, such as the art of negotiation, almost superb balance where ever she walked, who's who in what port, even a little thievery. But her greatest talent was the violin, and since she learned to play it, morale was never better. But the carefree life she was raised with was soon to come to an end in her twenty first year.
In one of the many ports of Iona, Divina caught the attention of one of Morgath's Champions, Ser Crathen Jana. After nearly a year of negotiations, her parents agreed to the match. The young woman didn't want to marry that man, he made her very uneasy, but her parents believe it was a good match. So she decided to take her fate into her own hands.
During the months planning for the big wedding, Divina made plans of her own. She had heard of this new land called Terra Nova, and it seemed a perfect place to disappear. Finally, a month before her wedding, she slipped out under the cover of darkness to an awaiting merchant ship bound for the new land. Standing on the deck of the ship in her dark cloak watching the Ionian lighthouse disappear, a pang of guild shot through her as she thought of how disappointed her parents would be in the morning.
Finally landing in the new world, she immediately began taking carriage after carriage to throw off the scent of any that may being trying to hunt her down and take her back to Iona. She soon found her self in the village of Tanner's Crossing.
