About Kamilla Moor
Meeting up with her old friends again, she found they had grown up fast, and were hooked on a rather nasty substance called shiver. Unaware of the exact nature of the drug, and eager to disprove that her time in the Endrin Academy had changed her, Kamilla agreed to procure a new batch of the highly addictive substance for them. She sought out their supplier, a deplorable crime lord by the name of Gaedren Lamm. The foul old man saw an opportunity, and Kamilla agreed to a deal, the details of which only she and Gaedren are privy too. She was sure that she would come out on top, but this proved a lapse in judgement, as she eventually became hooked on the stuff when Gaedren forced her to sample it herself to persuade a potential buyer. For eight months, she lived from moment to moment, thieving her way to her next fix. Kamilla was in a constant state of utter depression, alleviated only by the momentary highs the drug provided. By the end, the drugs merely took away the pain, and allowed her to function normally for progressingly shorter and shorter amounts of time.
As it happens so often, at one point Kamilla pushed her substance abuse too far. Her vision went blurry, and she doubled over from headaches and chestpains. Her clothes soaked in sweat, she barely managed to make it home where she collapsed into a coma.
Upon waking, Kamilla found herself in the Grand Cathedral of Pharasma. Her parents had called for the aid of a local healer, who had taken her there. They brought her back from the brink of death, and nursed her back to health. Learning that her parents had spent nearly all the money they had, Kamilla realized how foolish she had been, and chose to stay on with the church. They taught her a trade, and she became familiar with funerary customs, preparing bodies to be interred in the districts many graveyards and crypts. She was instructed in all facets of the Pharasmin church and received lessons in a wide variety of topics. Eventually Kamilla's martial training resurfaced, as the Cathedral could use all the help they could get with the constant threat of the undead rising from the Vaults beneath the district.
Nowadays, she has grown into an accomplished and responsible young woman, but she has not yet forgotten the name Gaedren Lamm.
Description: Kamilla is a rather homely woman, with mismatched eyebrows and one eye slightly bigger than the other. A badly healed scar mars her face, running from the middle of her nose to her left cheek, a reminder of her ill-spent youth in Old Korvosa. Her hair is a platinum gray, and she wears it asymmetrical; long and curly on one side, shorn close to her skull on the other side. Her ears are heavily pierced, and she has an elaborate tattoo on her chest and throat.
Some people would call Kamilla a pessimist, but she sees herself as a realist. She has seen enough squalor and poverty to know that people can't just change the world, except in temporary and superficial ways. Everything that exists is an integral part of a greater whole, and there is a delicate balance in all of these things. This doesn't mean that Kamilla will sit by idly though, she will in fact go to great lengths to take corrective steps when she perceives an imbalance. In the great scheme of things, good and evil are all equally important and necessary, and in the end, the Lady sits in judgment over all.
