About Emma Blackford

Emma Blackford originally lived in Piren's Bluff, and studied under the guidance of her mother and various other paladins and soldiers at the fort there to become a fellow paladin of Iomedae. Her life was one of rigidity and tradition, though it wasn't always evident to her when growing up. Still, as she grew older, she began to chafe a bit under the constant training and lessons of her mother, though she still cared a great deal for her mother and what she thought. Ultimately, aside from a brief fling with a pretty bard of Desna who was passing through Piren's Bluff, Emma never had much time for things like romance or having much of a life herself. Her interests and activities tended to be limited to what her lessons entailed.

Upon her mother's death, Emma experienced a crisis of faith and identity - who was she, really? What was her purpose in life? Without the set path before her, what did she even want from life? The prospect of such freedom was both frightening and enticing at the same time. She set out on the road, intent on finding out if she was capable of fulfilling the role she'd been training for - and if it was even something she wanted.

In Saringallow, she joined up with a group of adventurers. Together, they were able to uncover a dark plot that had taken root in the town, saving many of the townsfolk in the process. Through the conflicts, a bond was formed between the group.

Emma tends to be cheerful, if not a bit absentminded at times. She always tries to provide aid and comfort where she can. She still struggles with her confidence, but recent victories and bonding with her new group of adventurers has helped considerably.

Just don't ask Emma to deal with spiders.

She doesn't like spiders.
