Valeska is the illegitimate daughter of a boutique wine merchant of some repute. But, over the last few years business has been declining although the family's managed to save face with some creative finance. But, it can't last long...
To save Valeska from any possible hardship or danger, her father had sent her to stay with relatives for a couple of years, but she's older now and wishes to return home. The years away were not wasted, as her allowance afforded her the ability to study.
She, much to many peoples' surprise chose swordsmanship... her supple wrist and animal grace served her well. Little did she know that her true potential would flourish whilst wielding starknives.
But, even that would not prepare her for the moment she first summoned her eidolon... Besieged and beleaguered, all alone she had reached Rick bottom. She thought she would die in that alley way.
As if from inside the, the creature formed and stood between Valeska and the rogues, its iridescent black scales glistening in the moonlight as it ROARED!!! Get companion forever. Their paths, their souls destined to cross.
Home, and smart enough to understand the business now, she's realized that the vineyards aren't yielding a good crop. That was the root cause.
Whether it is sabotage, mis-management or simple bad luck... the fields aren't producing, and the only way to save the family business and perhaps the family itself... is to acquire acre upon acre of fresh verdant fields capable of supporting vineyards. Although she is not sure what exactly that means...
This expedition could help. Of that, she's certain!
