Once the heir to small noble house in Po Li, Song Lianhua was eventually run from her home by the Oracular Council itself. Born with a birthmark of a rising dragon on her back even from a early age Lianhua's farther Song Yun gave claims to his daughter being the reincarnation of The Eternal Emperor. Appearing before the council numerous times; Yun stated his claim and ridiculed them for being power hungry and refusing to allow the rightful owner of the throne to ascend. Yet time and time again the council affirmed that the birthmark was simply a sign for her to study under the council, not one so significant as to mark her as the reincarnation of the great emperor herself.
Even so the head of the Song house refused to hand over his treasure. Taking his speeches from the council and out onto the streets he spoke words of what some would consider heresy and others consider truth. Not long after whispers of the Oracular Council's corruption began to spread. Numerous stories about the girl with the rising dragon flew all over the Changdo and even talk of overthrowing the council began to emerge. Unfortunately for the Song family though, all it would ever be was talk.
It didn't take much for the council to reach their limits and they were not ones to tolerate such heresy and insolence for very long. The Song family was declared heretics and all of them were ordered to be beheaded for the public to see. Any of them who fled were ordered to be tracked down and brought back onto the streets to suffer the same fate as their family members before them. Before long the noble family was no more, every last one of them exterminated. That was, save for one.
Predicting such a consequence to his actions Yun had ordered his daughter to be taken away from Changdo and left with some close friends of his who lived much closer to the coast. Yun asked that if anything were to happen they put her on the next boat to Casmaron. From there she would be to take care of herself, with only Heaven's Will to guide her. Faithful as they were, the family did as was asked of them and sent the young Lianhua off on her own to a continent of which she was unfamiliar.
Now three years later, Lianhua still seeks to one day return to her home and claim the throne she believes to be rightfully hers. Unsure of if she is still being hunted or if she has been long since forgotten, the girl takes almost no attention to masking her identity. Proudly proclaiming herself as a member of the Song family and looking to garner any chance she can to gain power and nobility; she knows that she may not be able to take back what is hers peacefully. Always keeping her father's words in mind, to "trust in the will of Heaven" she knows that either way all that happens is simply what is meant to be.
A exotic beauty that is simply one in a million. A small slender frame, lush dark brown hair so much so that it is almost faded black, and deep black eyes capable of pulling in even the most reserved man. Lianhua is without a doubt the daughter of a noble and her normal appearance and dress reflect as such. Normally donning a beautiful Kimono and the accompanying attire and make-up she is always ready for whatever type of performance she might deem necessary.
Proud, intelligent, and a little bit spoiled. Lianhua believes in Heaven's Will and also attempts her best to uphold the law.
Lianhua is extremely proud of her heritage and birthmark. She believes that she is entitled to inherit Five Dragon Throne and won't let anything get in her way. Unfortunately her belief's are to a fault and as such she often revels this information in areas where it is unnecessary or even disadvantageous.
Additionally her proud nature can make it very hard to swallow her pride at times. This can also result in many situation where she speaks against or refutes statements in places where she should not.
Most likely any contacts she once had from Tian Xia are dead. Although there still may be some supporters keeping their heads low until she returns (and even then maybe still keeping their heads low).
Various contacts she may have met in the 3 years since her exile.
Oracular Council of Po Li.
Reason for Joining Molthune Army:
Spotting a chance at citizenship somewhere other then Po Li Lianhua decided to join in the Molthune army and offer up her expertise and magic. The first step to returning home would be raise her prestige and following somewhere else. As she would deem, it was Heaven's Will which brought her to the opportunity in the first place.
