About Swen Xuo

Swen was born into a wealthy merchant family of Shadow Absalom, operating trade between the dark city's Material World counterpart. As a child, Swen was mostly left to her own devices and began to run with a gang of other fetchling youth. She developed a taste for pickpocketing which eventually evolved into more substantial thievery, and burglary. For her it was more about the thrill seeking than it was about a need to survive, her family being well able to support itself. That's not to mention that she was pretty good at it.

The members of her juvenile gang soon began setting each other up on dares for more and more valuable targets. It was only a matter of time before one if them was caught, and lo and behold, Swen stumbled into a trap as she was breaking into a renowned elven silversmith's shop in Absalom.

Merely a child, Swen was thrown behind bars. Disgraced by her behavior, Swen's family quickly renounced her and left her on her own. She was cast out of her homeland, banned from returning to Shadow Absalom.

One of the sheriffs, on the verge of retirement and tired of watching youths slip away into a life of crime, took pity on her and took her in. He enrolled her in a reform school, where Swen was repeatedly bullied for her outsider appearance. She soon came to hate the term fetchling, as it was used over and over to demean her, and began to refer to herself as Kayal.

By the time she finished her schooling, The Exchange was looking for ways to buy out her former family's business. They recruited her as an informant and tried to use her intel to strongarm the family. Their plan backfired, and Swen's reputation in Shadow Absalom was further tarnished. With nowhere else to go, she hired on to The Exchange as a low level go between, working odd jobs and receiving combat training where she could. Soon she was able to work as a mercenary escort for various trade caravans, and was able travel to varying locales throughout the Inner Sea region.

The Exchange keeps an keen eye on Druma, and soon took interest in the Silver Shields enterprise. They recruited Swen to work undercover, to infiltrate the organization and report back on their inner dealings. Swen eagerly took the mission, excited for adventure and the chance to prove herself. Contacts were made, documents forged, and quickly enough, Swen was on her way to Macridi to meet with Colewin Binderbook himself.


At 5'8" and a lithe 98lbs, Swen is slender as most fetchlings, but also fit and wiry. Her skin is ashen grey. She has jet black hair which she colors with indigo dye and keeps in two long braids. She wears black leather armor over a white tunic and black trousers. Black knee high boots and a black cloak complete her outfit. Her eyes are an intense yellow-green. She cares little about the politics of her employer and is simply hungry for the thrill and challenge of adventure.
