Meera has grown up within the city. Her family is large and 'well connected' within the circles she has grown up in and lived within.
Meera and the other children of the large extended Clan all receive visits from a slightly mysterious stranger. The children are schooled in self defense, the keeping of secrets and other such fare. This os something which stays hidden within the Family.
Meera currently fulfills the roll of 'Bouncer' in many a tavern all about various districts. Her skills at sizing up a patron and or removing said potential trouble are reasonably well known to those who hire such.
Normally she does her work and simply keep an ear out for nay useful information which might be of benefit when relayed back to the senior memebers of the Clan.
Meera herself comes across as quiet and reserved. One does not always know who is and is not an ally on any given day of the week, given the lower cities usually constant changing and shifting gang politics.
Back grounds, back ground:
Meer'as 'family' began as one of the many Ninja Clans within the land known as 'Minkai'. They had their specialties and their 'Forte', though that which made them 'distinct' was perhaps their back ground of being made up of related half-Elves. Normally, this fact would be hidden behind disguises, the better for their partly Elven heritage to give them a hidden advantage. A Half-Elve's low-light vision a definite boon in a Ninja's nocturnal duties.
As with all things, the clan's fortunes rose and eventually the clan's fortunes fell. Some change in politics within the Empire leading to the group fleeing for their lives and finally ending up as far as they could go without completing the circumference and ending back where they began. To the grand city of Absalom, where they initially learned the ways of these new folk while going about their 'normal' businesses of what ever trades they performed as cover.
Over time, the 'Families' talents and skills saw them gravitate again to their 'normal' level of operations, with 'Day to day' business being used to cover the 'Families' secret skills.
One of the 'specialties' which escaped across the world was the Clan's 'patron'. An other worldly being of mystical harmony and grace, who still watches over the Clan and helps teach and foster the newer generations. Helping instill a small sense f continuity to that which has been lost ad gone before.
Meera was born into this close knit, Absalom 'Family'. Raised in a 'creche' with other h=children of the clan/family and schooled under the watchfully eye of the Families patron, she has learned her lessons well and now works a 'normal' job as a bouncer. Also using her skills to protect Family interests and such.
Her tasks as a tavern 'Bouncer' or 'Tough' she does well, her skills and abilities giving he the definite edge over most tavern patrons who become too intoxicated and rowdy for the establishments financial safety (Too many broken tables and chairs can mean a business goes broke repairing things over just buying the victuals to run an establishment.)
Then there is the safety of the staff which Meera over sees. Making sure that when a serving lass says "No." the inquiring patron definitely understands that means "No!".
Many a fight has been ended with Meera simply grabbing whatever has been at hand and then deftly 'feigning' and bluffing the target with a quick jab such that the target never sees the punch or round house kick which leaves them unconscious and thence removed from the premises.
This has, over the years, left Meera with both a reputation as some one who is good at her job as well as more than a few people who dislike Meera for one misunderstanding or another.
Hence, Meera is often curt and circumspect with those around her, never knowing who might be carrying a grudge for who ever she's lately helped 'leave' an establishment where she's been working. Or who might know some one who is still carrying a grudge from when they were ejected from some establishment.
