• Pic 1
• Pic 2
• Eyes: Brown
Hair: Auburn
Skin: Pale, noticeably warm to the touch
Height: 5' 6"

2: Goals
• She wants to pledge herself more fully to hell. Eventually she wants to be bound to a greater devil (cr 13+). Possibly even gain Devilbound (instead of a level)
• I will be going for the Elocater prestige class at 6th.
• Awesome Sith/Jedi action!

3: Secrets
• Known - an ancient writing "the red blade shall sever Mitra's hold upon this world." Prophecy or drivel? Her blade or another.
• Unknown - Lectus' betrayal did not gain him acceptance with the outside world. He regrets his betrayal, but he doesn't know if he can repent.

4: Three people
• Ally - Arronax - mentor, father figure
• Unknown - Lectus - Tiefling fighter, fellow cultist, betrayer
• Enemy - Kelior, grand knight of the Jedi order

5: Memories and quirks
• "If I am to be a tool of Hell, then I shall be the sharpest tool I can be."
• At nine, she performed her first murder. It was someone brought in from a distance and tied up. It was a celebration, a passage. She keeps a simple copper bracelet from the victim.
• Lectus was her first lover. They were instructed not to form attachments, but teenagers will be teenagers.

Talia was born to raise hell. Bred to destroy Mitra's church. She and her half-siblings were created to be powerful. Each was trained with different gifts. Through out their childhood, they moved around to avoid detection, part of their long-term plan. Talia's gifts were unexpected. They had to bring in a specialist in the mental arts, Arronax, to instruct her. Arronax was fallen from an order of mentalist knights working for Mitra. With time, they would form a dark mirror of this order to take down the church.

Their childhood was focused on learning to blend in. Most of them appeared to be human and were allowed to go out under close watch. Others had to wait for the bundles of clothes in winter to go out. Talia was lucky - four nipples and warm skin were the visible legacies of her heritage. She wasn't the most social, but training allowed her to blend better. As she learned her powers, she learned to use them to keep her thoughts off of her expression. She could also use that to guard other's minds - a useful talent.

As she learned the arts of sneaking and blending, her psionic talents also proved useful. Armor of magical force, a blade of thought, the ability to dodge a strike before her foe moved. An assassin that needed no tools. This made her useful and brought down attention for good and bad. She was punished twice for failure and praised twice for success. She became the zealot they hoped for.

It was also this attention that led to their downfall. One of her siblings, Lectus, was jealous. He had digitigrade legs with hooves, and a tail. He could only go out rarely - when it was cold enough to wear a voluminous cloak and when there was no rain or snow to show his tracks. Lectus had no special talent for magic or mentalism. His faith was not strong enough to call on divine power. He wasn't nimble enough to learn locks and traps. He was simply taught the sword. This was not enough for Lectus. He longed for more recognition. And he found it through Mitra's church. By betraying his blood, he became the risen fiend.

The holy warriors broke in at night. They rammed the door down while Talia was on guard. Battered by the ram and trampled by their boots, she had no chance to fight. She awoke in Branderscar already branded. Being found in a place of worship of Asmodeus was inherently heretical. Her only hope was that they didn't know what she could do. She would face the fire and join her brethren in death, but she would not go alone.
