Character: Caeli Oakenthorn

Earliest formative memory:

Caeli closed her eyes and turned her face towards the sun, taking pleasure in the warmth on her face. There was a chill on the wind and beneath the trees the frost still remained in deep drifts, but in her garden the ground was clear and the soil tilled for the spring planting.
The doors to the forge were open to cool the shop, but she couldn’t hear her Papa working.

Instead, she could hear the low tones of her father and Owen discussing a trade of some sort but the specifics were lost on her young ears. The trees rustled in the wind, owls hooted out of sight, and water bubbled in the stream as the snows melted off, and she was safe and comfortable in the presence of the gods.

“Caeli?” Owen’s voice drew her from her meditation and she smiled up at the young warrior where he leaned on the garden fence. “I brought you some seeds from Cestral. Your father said you’d like them.”

Character Background: Caeli Oakenthorn

Upon the islands of Eur, in the long distant past, lived a young druid woman called Caeli Oakenthorn. Caeli was the daughter of a well-known blacksmith named Caliburn and a druid woman, Fiona. Caliburn and Fiona were not married because her father forbid it, but she soon
became pregnant and as a result of complications she died upon giving birth to the young Caeli.

Fiona’s father, the head of the druid clan, claimed Caeli as theirs and made several unsuccessful attempts to steal her away as a child. As a result, Caliburn became reclusive after Fiona’s death and withdrew from the village where he had always lived to build a new smithy out in the remote forest. Caliburn was protective of his daughter, hiding her away from any who would bring her harm. However, as she grew older and it became apparent he did not have the skills to educate her properly, he sought out another druid clan to teach her.

Caeli was a curious child, always eager to learn and explore. The vast forests, for all their
danger, were her playground and she thrived in the freedom it allowed her. From a young age
she looked after her father and saw to the meals, as a self-taught cook she learned what plants were edible and which were not. In this same way she learned to garden and tend to both native plants and those she had planted from seed.

Occasionally a traveler would venture to the smithy to request a blade crafted by her father’s hand. Such travelers always fascinated Caeli, and she learned as much from them as she could in the short time they were around. There was only one man who returned to them time and time again, a traveler called Owen who was well-known as a skilled fighter and swordsman.

Many years Caeli’s senior, though in his prime of life, she was captivated by his tales of battle and travel. Over the years he taught her to fight, a skill her father refused to teach her, and while she had extensive knowledge of swords, her favored fighting style was with a staff. As she grew older, he would bring her gifts from his travels - seeds of plants she had never seen before in her forests, books written about plants and alchemy, dozens of pretty little jars. Such small tokens meant the world to her, for he was truly her only friend.

There came a time when Owen did not visit for nearly a year, but another man came in his
name. Annwn was much older than even Caeli’s father, sent by Eoghan to retrieve a sword that
was intended for a new ruler in a far off land. As Annwn explained, Caliburn’s craftsmanship
was still highly valued in the land. While her father finished his work on the blade, Annwn
introduced Caeli to the more exotic uses of alchemy. Owen had told Annwn about her in
interest in alchemy, and the druids had taught her the basics of healing magic, but with Annwn’s guidance and teaching, she quickly learned to create her alchemy with magic to make them more potent. The skill came as natural to her as tending to the land had when she was a child, and her skill only continued to grow after Annwn left her with three large tomes on the subject.

Like her parents before her and the druid clan who taught her, Caeli worshiped the gods of the land and followed the Old Ways in sacrifice and worship. From the beginnings of her training she was faithful and regular, following the teachings of the elder druids. It seemed she was destined for great things as she rose quickly in the clan. However, it was determined not to be her destiny. Caeli was relatively young when she met her fate at just twenty years old, a fortnight before her wedding at the summer solstice. For months the druids whispered and wondered what the girl had done to anger Veyn and Baleaiesh - for there was no explanation for the lake to still be frozen in the late spring. And Caeli, who had tended to her plants only hours earlier, was found trapped beneath the solid ice, no cracks or holes to tell how she was there at all.

Overcome by his grief, Caliburn cursed the gods he had long-worshipped for taking away his
only child and burned down the forest where Caeli paid her tribute to the gods and tended to the earth. When Owen arrived not a week later with the intent to propose marriage, Caliburn sent him away with the threat to never return or he would be killed.
