Stella, a sprightly young elf, always knew she was destined for greater things. Hardships from a young age saw her flee her homeland and, dark hair brushed behind one pointed ear, adorned by a single flower, she welcomed the upcoming adventure with a childlike curiosity. Packing her leather rucksack with iced-coffee *cough* I mean mana potions *cough*, and with a flurry of excitement, she just knew that the world had great things in store for her. And so, wielding her ear-to-ear grin, she embarked on her journey.
She travelled over sun-baked deserts, across salty oceans, through dense green forests; and made several companions along her way. Life had given her a second chance, and believe you, she was going to grab it with both hands!
It was on a hunting trip when it all went wrong. Whilst wielding her bow and arrow, working as the scout for her party, she suddenly found herself face-to-face with a hulking beast. Her shield-brothers and sisters attempted to fight it off, but the damage was done; a sharp swipe of its poisoned claws and she fell to the floor.
Now, she's holed up in an inn, being cared for by those that love her. The poison had made its way to her heart and a cure has stumped even the most talented of mages. There will be a long road ahead and recovery mightn't come swiftly, but surrounded by such great company, she knows she can make it. And thus this is the tale of how Stella will recover, and you watch; she'll be back out and adventuring before you even know it!
