Nissa was born in Araluen, her mother died some years after she was born the only thing she has of her mother is the ring she now wears on her finger. Her father loved his wife and got into the habit of drinking after she died in order to drown out the pain of her death he hated Nissa because she looked so much like his late wife. He would often come home drunk and angry, sometimes he would strike her and would throw furniture about. This deeply scared Nissa as a child giving her a fear of taverns and drunks. The ranger of the fief knew what was happening but did nothing, Nissa blamed the ranger for not doing anything to help her. When Nissa was sixteen some bandits decided to have a hay day and burn her home to the ground, they did so to several other home son the outsides of her village. She managed to get out unscathed but her father never forgave her and when she presented it to the ranger he once again did nothing, saying he had many things to do and that she was not the only one whose house was lost. It was later that same year that she ran away from home. At first she was scared that her father would come after her and do something awful to her but after five months she relaxed it became clear that no one was looking for her. She made a living for herself stealing from travelers and homesteads alike. She had only been caught a few times but never put in jail, she had escaped every time.Additional Information:
