Appearance
Kezia's long whimsical wavy brown hair is often pulled back from her face on the sides. Her warm beige skin tans evenly with little effort. Although, she has a slender shape, she is solidly built like an athletic. Kezia's dark brown eyes are attention getting and seem to have fierceness about them that causes you to step back. Her most distinct feature is her soft smile.


Clothing
The look of a lady with a twist of tomboy/rebel mixed with the clothing of that time.Typically wears dark clothes in burgundy, steel blues and greys. She wears dress when society calls for it but under her brocade victorian long coat she dawns pants (unheard of at that time).

Personality
Few know the true Kezia Tannenbaum, the exception being her four sisters. The two traits most people enjoy about Kezia is her charming and passionate nature. Of course she's also persuasive, idealistic and daring. Raised as a refined lady of privilege she knows how to play the part, but is quietly rebellious with her independence and societal disagreement of what women should be. Her calm nature though, this is what she's often adored for. Those around her usually count on this and her cooperation during times of distress. Nobody's perfect of course and Kezia has less pleasant traits too. Her stubbornness, tenacity and inability to forgive others are far from ideal and effect all those around her. Fortunately her sense of what is right and wrong helps to keep her negative qualities in check.


Background
Six generations of Tannenbaums have lived in Judenburg. The family came as immigrants with only the shirts on their backs, but through a series of events, they are now one of the more affluent families in towne. Their estate is situated on the highest hill that overlooks Judenburg. Humble in what they have, they are generous and the village counts on this to help it move forward. Amit and Eliora Tannenbaum were blessed with five daughters. Each daughter being as unique and special as the next, but their youngest daughter Kezia, is the one that truly captures a special place in their hearts. The sisters relationships has always been exceptional and undivided. To prove that point, the eldest sister Ghila is now married, her husband and her live in a modest home on the estate so Ghila can be close to her family, but mainly her sisters.

In their younger years the girls were tutored on the estate. Their tutoring included extensive training in martial arts, hand to hand combat and archery. Even at a young age Kezia emerged as the sword and dagger expert among her family and when she was 15 she became the tutor for her family.

There are not many male suitors in Judenberg and the ones that are there are a little scared of the Tannenbaum sisters. With that in mind, Kezia nor her other three sisters have ever had suitors. Although, this has never been a issue for the Tannenbaum sisters, the gossip about town would whisper words like spinsters.

So begins...

It was a Thursday morning in the village as the villagers started to prepare for the annual village festival. They hoped that people would be less likely to disappear if everyone was outside and had an eye on each other.

Overall the weather was clear and it was warm as it was early summer. In the village plaza, the Rebbe and a couple others were looking over plans where the stands should be and that food and drink were all there. "Any idea where the beer is? And is someone making those tasty pastries again this year?" The Rebbe asked. Then one of the men said: "You mean the rugelakh with the poppy mixed into the cream cheese? Those were delicious. I bet someone will make it this year again. The beer should be in the shpaykhler (storehouse) near the Rubin elder's home." The Rebbe then nodded.

Meanwhile in the outskirts of the forest a woman in an outfit more suited for work there went slowly sneaking towards a grazing buck. She then took her rifle and aimed carefully. Then a shot rang through the forest. It was a good hit. The woman, named Tzaitel Mandelbaum, then dragged the dead buck to a hand cart nearby and loaded it onto the cart. Then she headed back to the village. She came down the hill and the Rebbe took notice. "Caught another big one? You never let your family or the village down." He said. Tzaitel then answered: "This one is for the butcher for the sausages for the festival opening this evening." A smile grew on the Rebbe's face and he said: "I look forward to them."

Early summers are delightful in Judenburg. The days are pleasantly warm, while vast blue skies reminds one of the oceans without end. The delicate scent of fragrant rose gardens are carried by the soft breeze around the village. The grass is still green enough from spring, giving the lawns and meadows a lushness about them.

It's been a long standing tradition that the Tannenbaum family bring their kasterd pirog and Milbenkäse kez to the village festival. The kasterd pirog is a these rather extravagant food, that the Tannenbaums would have to save their tsuker all year long for. They did not mind this, because this was a gesture of friendship to their beloved village family. No one loved the village festival more than Kezia. At the young age of 8, Kezia decided that her sisters and her should make the kasterd pirog instead of the servants. In their teens it became a competition to see who could make the most pirogs. Year after year Kezia would out do her sisters, making it well known she was the best.

This year as Kezia hurried about the kitchen, she couldn't help but think of the enchanted forest and those lost girls. Kezia was never afraid of the enchanted forest. She often dared to venture along the edge when she was young. Unfortunately, the tongue lashing she got for such a stunt only keep her safe by the edge for a few months. Eventually, she would finally succumb to her curiosity and test the limits again. When she got older, Kezia no longer stayed along the edge. but would sneak away into the enchanted forest. She could get as far as the sunshine would let her before the darkness became too eerie. Retreating quickly back to the safe edge, where she would kick herself for not being brave enough to go further. She vowed to herself that one day she would explore all the enchanted forest and see if the folklore about the trolls, bears, fairies, goblins, golems and witches were true. As of today, all she's ever seen is a hirsh and her two fons.

From the estate the alphorn was barely audio, but Kezia could pick out the familiar melody. Kezia hummed along, while she saddled her stallion. Outside the cart was being loaded with the family's kasterd pirog and Milbenkäse kez for their annual contribution to the festival. There was a hustle and bustle on the estate as all were preparing to leave for this much anticipated event. Kezia however, loved to ride into town first and check out the sights and smells before her family demanded all her time.

Reaching down to brush some hay off her trouser before she mounted Clove.Oh, how mother hates the fact that I am so independent. Touching her trouser once again, when she found the dress (I made these trousers from) wadded up in under my bed, she was furious.I didn't apologize. I simply stated I wanted to be a lady by not letting my nikkers hang out. If only she understood that a woman is so much more than a pretty trophy for a man to have. Hopping on her horse.....besides when I ride side-saddle I feel like I am going to fall of the horse. Cracking the whip she galloped off toward the village below.

As Kezia approached the village she stopped along the creek to let her horse drink. The alphorn was clear now and playing a song she used to dance to as a child. The low notes encircling her as she drifted from reality into a dream like state, reinacting the dance in her mind. Slowly swaying to the rhythm... when suddenly the alphorn stopped mid chorus, jolting her back to her reality. There was a low rumble in the village with a few high streaks of terror. Kezia could sense something was terrible wrong. No! It couldn't of happened again!!Whistling for her horse, she quickly mounted and galloped toward the village.

The plaza was a scurry of commotion. An uncontrollable woman was being consoled by other village women. Along the cobblestone road the preteen boys gathered rocks together, while planning their attack against the monster. To the side the Rebbe was talking to a group of people. Behind Kezia a voice low but purposeful voice startled her, "I volunteer to join the search," Heinrich said, low but clearly to the Rebbe. "I have a rifle, maps, and some experience with this sort of thing." That is the map maker, Heinrich, whose chatty daughter, Ghissie, was one of the first to disappear. I always liked Heinrich, but felt sorry for him. Raising his daughter alone must've been so hard. It was then that Kezia decided her life would be so incomplete without her family. She was luck. Poor Heinrich, had his only family ripped away from him."Rebbe are you taking volunteers? I can leave within the hour."

Volunteers began to gather. Good men and women were present to volunteer to investigate the disappearances. Aside from Tzaitel, Heinrich, Kezia and Aldrik appeared to help. "Do we have any more?" The Rebbe asked. Tzaitel then answered: "My grandmother is bound to help but otherwise I am not sure who else might be willing to help. Many people are afraid of the forest."

"I guess this is it then. All we know is that there are eight children missing in total. Nearly all of them girls. This quest might take days, even weeks. But don't leave any rock unturned. I'd prefer to raze that damned forest but we cannot do that. Bring back whichever surviving children you can find." The Rebbe said.

"You can definitely count on me to kill any dangers to the group, no matter if it is a witch or a troll." Tzaitel said. "I might be able to get better equip from goblin merchants on the way."

"Tzaitel is right. The goblins do have better equipment." Kezia nervously spoke to the crowd around. "We will need some items to trade or funds in order to get equipment that will actually help us save our children. May I suggest we all pool together our best and most valuable items to trade with the goblins." Turning to the Rebbe. " I have to get back to my family estate. I promise I will return as quickly as I can. I will meet the group at the edge of the forest. Since it is closer to my home." Kezia galloped off before the Rebbe could reply.

Kezia's heart was still in her throat. Never before had she gave a speech in front of people. She couldn't help herself. She kept thinking the laughter of little ones was dying in the village she loved. Normally, she would enlist her sisters for help, but she just wanted to protect her family from the risks of the unknown. To avoid passing them on the main road, she took a trail through the adjacent property on the other side of the hill.

Once home, she took two stairs at a time to her room, grabbed her leather satchel, then raced to her father's library. With careful precision, she unlocked his gun safe and took the Krieghoff Trumph Drilling. Frantically, looking behind books and through drawers she could not find the gelts she knew her father had. Then she remembered......as a child playing under his enormous desk and there was a secret drawer and there she found the sack of gelt. She laid her treasures in the hall, then hurried off to her parents room. The beautifully polished marble jewelry box was a wedding present to her mother from her father. As she set aside the lid, she carefully took gems and jewelry that had less sentimental value than others. Replacing the lid, she gingerly put the jewels in a velvet sack and cinched it closed. Kezia gathered her items in the hall and dashed to her last place, the kitchen. In the velvet lined cupboards she collected all the silver candlesticks, pitchers, vases and placed them in her satchel. Wrapped the Krieghoff Trumph Drilling in a fancy tablecloth.

Before leaving she gathered some dried fruit, meat and water. Loading her goods on Clove she galloped toward the forest edge......
