Bio:

Mist is an attractive young girl of the Whitehorse clan, a family of traditional Cahbraimaran Horse Lords who settled in the region during the founding of Sandpoint (40 years ago), giving up their nomad ways. They now breed horses and trade with their tribal cousins.

Although Mist was brought up following the domestic Iliath Court gods of the Icherans, which her family converted to many years ago, she has instead received dreams and visions to return to worship the traditional war gods of the Tsargoth court followed by the Cahbraimaran.

In her dreams, Sinchiroca the Horse has told her that she must raise an army for the leader of the Horse Lords to oppose the returning Thassilon Empire, from the stories her great-grandmother told.

Mist has decided to return to the old ways and become a Cahbrai Shieldmaiden, although she does not know a lot about the traditions as her family has long since abandoned them. Her parents are opposed to her decision and it has caused a rift with them, but she has taken her great-grandmothers tribal gear – armor, shield, sword and spear – and set off to find out about her past.

The gods still talks to her, and has told her than soon she will face many trials – those that are evil will be revealed to her, and she will be able to channel healing power when necessary. The Tsargoth gods will also help to protect her from harm when their help is called upon.

Boons

The horse

Whilst questing to save Sandpoint, it was found the nearby goblins had trapped a proud and noble wild horse. Once rescued, the animal revealed itself to in fact be a Child of Sinchiroca, a divine mount which the Tsargoth Court had granted to Mist.

Shadowmist, as the beast is called, is a now loyal friend and companion to Mist, coming to aid when needed (they share a divine magical bond).

The hawk

Mist was tasked by Halrek the Hawk, along with her companions, to defeat the beast beneath the lake. As the battle progressed, Mist needed help to reach the monstrous foe and called upon Halrek for aid.

The Tsargoth Court considered her worthy to grant the request, gifting Shadowmist with hawk wings when needed to carry the battle to the enemy.

Curses

  • For affronts to the Mortanius Court and assault upon their servant, Mist can no longer be risen from the dead via magic.
  • For disrespect to Iseru the Ox, of the Iliath Court, Mist has gain the curse of the maze and loses her sense of direction easily.
