Description: Lara Evangeline Ellicott-Tillingsworth is a young human woman, pretty and probably not much older than her early 20s, with brown eyes and chestnut-brown hair gathered in a ponytail. Dressed like an explorer, bandoliers and pouches criss-cross an athletic frame garbed in earth-toned clothes and leather armor that often seems to be covered in dust and mud. She carries a shortbow and a quiver of arrows on her back, and a longsword and dagger at her belt.
Fate's Favored: Always seeming just a little bit more lucky than her contemporaries, whenever Lara comes under the effects of a luck bonus, she increases the effect by 1.
Pathfinder Recruit: Explore, report, and cooperate. This is the credo Lara has lived by since she joined the Pathfinder Society, and after hearing about the expedition to found Talmandor’s Bounty she applied, eager to see the remains of Azlant. However, she quickly learned that the Bountiful Venture Company wasn’t interested in involving the Pathfinder Society in the formation of the colony. This struck her as strange, because who else has as keen an understanding of some of the elements of ancient Azlant as the Pathfinder Society?
Regardless, she went through the application process, making sure to highlight all of her applicable skills and experience while keeping her involvement in the Society to herself. Lara was elated to receive notice that she was selected for the second wave of colonists bound for the broken continent of Azlant. She begins play with a standard wayfinder and gains a +1 trait bonus on initiative checks.
Vagabond Child: After her aristocratic parents' deaths while she was at university, and the subsequent loss of the family estate, Lara lived among the outcasts and outlaws of Taldan society for a short time before finding her purpose with the Pathfinder Society. While on the streets, she learned to forage and survive in an urban environment. As a result, she gains a +1 trait bonus on Disable Device checks, and it is always a class skill for her.
Dependent: After losing her parents, Lara became increasingly dependent upon the acceptance of others. Whenever she fails a Diplomacy check, she becomes shaken for 1 hour.

To Whom It May Concern:
The University of Oppara is rightfully renowned as a center of learning on the Avistani continent. It is renowned throughout the surrounding lands, and with good reason. Many of the world's foremost scholars--on a variety of subjects--teach at the University. I am Lara Evangeline Ellicott-Tillingsworth, and I come to you as a graduate of that august institution.
I am an archaeologist by profession and an explorer by calling. No doubt there is ample room for explorers on a newly discovered (or should I say, rediscovered?) continent, and the more minds at work at the great problems that confront a fledgling colony, the greater its chances of success. I come to you to offer my skills to the expedition, and am confident that you will find me to be an asset to the community, and to the company. Should you take the time to interview me, I am sure that you will agree that my skills and talents will be most useful. I look forward to hearing from you about the opportunity to prove it.
