Though once a much less harsh person, Estelle has always been a bit rough around the edges. While her husband lived, she worked in his family’s shop, more out of obligation than any real interest, though that is where she picked up the katana. Though she generally didn’t interact with customers, she found that occasionally the family’s superstitions got the best of them, and they would call on her to serve a customer. Usually they were muttering something about “blighted” or “changelings”. Magic and fairy tales, things that Estelle had always known weren’t real, despite everyone’s insistence. If they needed to believe in fairy tales to be happy, let them, meanwhile, she mostly learned to keep her laughter and scoffing to herself. The customers were nice enough, and at least it was a change of pace.
After he died, she just stopped showing up. Free from that obligation, she disappeared from the lives of the people who knew her and used the opportunity to reinvent herself and try to figure out what she wanted from her life.
She tried to educate herself, but that was tedious. She had no head for business. She wasn’t skilled enough at social niceties to blend in with the nobles. Farming was rather boring. Thievery was actually kind of fun, but Estelle found that other than food, she had little to no use for anything she took, and her victims often found items reappearing a few days later, leaving them to wonder how they’d misplaced such a precious item.
While she was pondering what to try next, the outsiders attacked. As Strider led them to the cave, Estelle knew only that she wanted to survive. As the stakes became clear, Estelle realized that if she didn’t help, she would be the only survivor. She watched the others. As the group led by Koren formed, it was clear what path would both be the most interesting and hold the greatest chance of saving everything, though she has her doubts about some of the groups’ self-preservation instincts…
