Past History: Born into the role of Priestess, Valara was scouted for her uncanny charisma and gifts with social exploitation at a young age. Her parents were kind, devoted to her role and saw to her success. She left home before she turned 17 and lived in solitude as a priestess. She honed her gifts with social engineering and a goal to devote her life to her God/Goddess.

Hometown: TBD

First Memory:

Most important childhood event that still affects him/her; how/why: Her mother took her to a statue that represented a god, or goddess. She was told that she would be a devoted priestess later on in life. Valara remembers the sculpted face and the beauty of the light that cast downward on the stoic figure. Although she was young, she knew then what her role was in society.

Other memories/events that still affects him/her; why/how: Early on, Valara expressed her ability to persuade even the most narcissistic individual to succumb to her whims. Although she was unaware of her sexual exploits, she learned to abuse her feminine wiles to recruit young men into her religious cause. Others feared her, while many respected her ability to dominate even the most intimidating socialite.


Past failures s/he would be embarrassed to have people know about and why:

Biggest role model and why: Her mother was the greatest role model in her life. She taught her everything about medicinal healing and basic survival. Their relationship was more like a mentor/student role, but her mother never failed to nurture her daughter. Rituals and certain rights were passed down to Valara in private. There was an understanding of loyalty to one another, but Valara knew that she would have to choose her devotion to a God/Goddess. When she left home, it was the hardest on herself and her mother. Her mother gave her a moonstone ring to remember her by. The ring never leaves Valara’s ring finger. It’s a reminder of where she came from and who she’s meant to be. Her mother always encouraged her and reminded her of her succession in a line of priestesses.

Biggest disillusions from childhood: Socializing was not as smooth for Valara in the beginning. She had many blunders, but learned from her mistakes. One did not speak their mind, if they wanted to befriend the enemy and earn their trust. They agreed, even when they disagreed. Valara learned that people did not care about you, but that they used you for their advances. She began to adopt this mentality and gained social ranks at a young age.

Raised from a family of priestess that devote their lives to a single temple.
