Bio:

Fierce, young but weathered, possessed with righteous fury, Laetitia views herself as an embodiment of justice. This can occasionally, especially to her foes, feel like bloodthirsty vengeance, but Laetitia also feels that only against seeming disaster do people recognize what is truly important.

Of course, when she’s not acting like the star in a twisted korean revenge flick, she enjoys children greatly. If she finds herself relaxing, it’s most likely sitting somewhere and constructing artful depictions of Church history and Thranian lore.

She is stiff, used to the ritual movements of the monastery. She often speaks abstractly, wondering about motives. She is not so naive that she is careless, and so she likes to let other people say things that get them into trouble. Making people uncomfortable is something she feels very comfortable with. Around close friends or those she trusts, she is significantly less guarded, but does not discuss her history.

When in combat, she tends to lose her detachment, and stride far forward into the mix of things. It is against overwhelming and dangerous odds that she feels like she’s earning her keep, and so she keeps stacking the deck against herself. There’s a strong cruel streak that comes out when she bloodies her opponents, and finishing them off is starting to make her justified in her approach.

Laetitia was raised as the youngest daughter in a poor household from Thrane. She is devoted to her religious duties, respectful of others, but with a fierce and unstoppable sense of justice. When she was young, her father was betrayed in a business deal. Some in her family were sold off to pay for the debts, others left out of shame. Laetitia went to a Templar Monastery that was eager to take in the young, bold and lost girl. Immediately, she showed signs of promise, and they recognized the presence of the Silver Flame in her heart. Hoping to shape her nascent skills, they paired her with a wise matron, Athene, who taught her how to mold her anger into constructive forms, particularly in the form of vast and magical mandalas depicting the sacrifice of Tira and the Couatls. If so much love and thought can disappear in an instant and retain its worth, perhaps she can learn patience and fortitude as well?

But when her mentor and guide disappeared from the monastery, her rage (at her lost family, lost wealth, lost freedom, and sharpest of all, lost sense of moving on) grew too strong and she snapped. She lost her focus and worked to gain permission to leave. Finding the world larger than she imagined and full of injustices, she struggles to find word of her mentor, to find the remnants of her family, or to disintegrate herself on the battlefield.

Her class and skillsets are drawn from the history of thuggees and dacoits, such as the remarkable brigand Phoolan Devi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoolan_Devi), and worships a strong and fierce female deity not unlike the Durga aspect of Devi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durga), hence the name of her monastery.

Some of this background I jacked from basic dnd archetypes, but I drawn to the history of thuggees and dacoits, such as the remarkable brigand Phoolan Devi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoolan_Devi), who worships a strong and fierce female deity not unlike the Durga aspect of Devi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durga), whence her cult gets its name.
