Walking Through A Dream
Played By: Shannon Bly -----The Pathfinder
Alia Windwalker had a normal childhood. She grew up living in the Elven city of Agerais the World Tree, with her parents and community living in peace with nature and the wild things that live in the world. An expert with the longbow from an early age, she would take to wondering far and wide once she had reached teenage years. One day, while she was out wandering in the wilds, following the spirits of the forest, the world tree came under attack by a corrupt Crani of the cult of Vecna. In the subsequent battle, Agerais was destroyed and the land for miles around it were laid bare. Alia returned home just as the Vecna Cultists were leaving, to the ruin and horror they had left in their wake. She grew angry and heart-broken over the destruction that happened in her absence, and started searching the ruins for survivors, hoping to find her parents. The survivors she found were few, and those few quickly fell to the corruption left by the Cultists, turning them into the undead. Despairing and grief stricken, she came across a surviving High Priestess of Melora. The High Priestess, knowing that she was soon to fall to the dark magic of the undead, told Alia a secret that was to be held as a sacred trust. In a place far away, guarded and hard to find, was the salvation and the foundations of rebuilding the city and Agerais, the World Tree. A seed of the world tree had been hidden, with the secret to finding it left to only the High Priestesses of Melora. She whispered the instructions and the riddle to how to find the seed to Alia, imploring her to find the seed and to guard it until such time as the land could be cleansed and renewed. To ensure that the World Tree would grow again. Alia promised that she would seek out the world tree seed and guard it with her life. She became a seeker that day, vowing vengeance on those that had destroyed her city, Agerais the World Tree, and the land, but also on all those that would think to destroy nature anywhere in the world. Alia has kept the secret that the High Priestess told her, not fully understanding the meaning of the riddle or the clues in her message, but knowing that she has to find the seed one day. She is adventuring for dual purposes of answering the riddle to find the seed and finding a way to cleanse the land so that the seed may grow once it is found.
