Sia is a young Chelaxian woman who belongs to the infamous Markham family. At least it's infamous in Westcrown circles. She has dark red hair, and emerald green eyes. Not exactly the normal Chelaxian colorning. Her skin is pale, and she has an abundance of womanly curves. She dresses to show off her figure in the best light, and for ease of movement.

Her mother a famous actress known for her literary salons had romantic relationships with one too many nobles. Her jealous husband and a high ranking duke had a duel at dawn over her honor. Unfortunately both the duke and her mother's husband were killed. In truth the widowed duchess wasn't too sad about her husband's untimely death. However, she couldn't let such a slight stand. The duchess made it her life's work to discredit Sia's branch of the Markham family.

Sia grew up not knowing which of the two duelists was actually her father. Her mother Siala says it was her husband Ioanas, but Sia doesn't look much like either her mother or the paintings she’s seen of Siala’s husband.

A popular actress and dancer she's given access to the best drawing rooms in Westcrown. Her infamous family name doesn't hurt the invitations. Sia takes great pleasure in spending time in the drawing rooms of the elite of Westcrown, and thumbing her nose at them in subtle and cutting ways. They find her entertaining, and just as flamboyant as her other Markham relatives. Her brand of flamboyance has an edge of bitterness to it.

Her affinity for and training in dance has given her an insight in using dance as a form of fighting.

Future Feats:

Power Attack
dance of a hundred cuts (4th level)
dance of a thousand cuts (6th level)
