The Tyranny of Dragons
Ea was orphaned as a child and because of her appearance was hidden away in a library at an early age. She read voraciously and loved her ‘adoptive’ father the master librarian. She woke one day to find him dead in his room. She didn’t understand and continued reading; her father began appearing within the books she read. Eventually her supplies ran out, forcing her to go into the world to restock. Not having interacted with people in years, she was taunted and attacked in the town and retreated back to the library. The uneducated set fire to the library to punish her; she ran in, a mad-woman, convinced her only friends were being destroyed. As she saw books start to burst in flame she rushed inside. The crowd watched in horror as she didn’t burn. She watched book after book disintegrate in her hands until she picked up one that was immune. She started to read and in that moment made a pact with the Arch Fey, it only further unhinged her mind.
At this point she went out in the world, naive, and learning more the way of the Warlock. She began to travel lying and bluffing her way through encounters as her power grew. She eventually met Gorion and was taken into his library.
