Keep on the Shadowfell
Koba is a brash, young, Tiefling fighter. Born and raised in Fallcrest to a humble merchant family, Koba has very little memory of her childhood except for the occasional flash of something terrible, though she cannot remember what it is. Something inside her drives her towards adventure unlike her immediate family members who tend to scoff at adventure. Koba has a cousin in Fallcrest who routinely sends her letters by carrier pigeon, informing her of what is going on with her family.
One day while working her father’s merchant stall, Koba happened upon a notice in the square seeking adventurers to chart out ancient ruins and crypts. Answering the call, Koba was greeted by an old scholar named Parle Cranewing offering her and anyone willing to create a map of Shadowfell, an ancient outpost of a long gone human empire. 250 gold pieces was the accepted offer plus any expenses incurred.
Koba didin’t take long to say goodbye, much to the chagrin of her parents. She left home and set out on her journey west to Winterhaven. Hoping to meet up with adventurers along the way. Indeed, it wasn’t more than 5 miles outside of the city of Fallcrest that a young cleric named Alain caught up to her, carrying a pack far too heavy for the slight half-elf’s frame. Reluctantly, Koba agreed to take on the teenager, for something inside the young lad’s eyes said he could be useful.
