Character description

Background story

Aleria was born and trained as a Songblade warrior during the 12th Age. Songblade warriors were elite elven warriors, trained to battle with swords. When fighting it looks like a dance, and their blades slashing around sounds like a song. Everything is done on a rythm, and they are aware of every move in the fight. Aleria died around the age of 130 and was buried in an Elven tomb.

About 25 years ago servants of the Lich King found the lost and forgotten Elven tomb where she was buried. The Lich King felt the strength in her bones and decided to resurrect her. He had control over her and made her one of his assassins. She served the Lich King this way for many years. But slowly the Elf Queen started to feel Aleria's presence through their mystically connection. The Elf Queen could sometimes reach Aleria during her dreams. It was when Aleria was send to kill someone at the Court of Stars by the Lich King that the Elf Queen found and saved her. She managed to release Aleria from the control of the Lich King.

After that Aleria served the queen on multiple missions. The Elf Queen wants her to adventure and improve her skills as the last Songblade warrior. And maybe one day she can start training new Songblade warriors and restore this ancient Art to the Elven.

Aleria has no memories about her old life in the 12th Age. And only some flashbacks about the time she was under control of the Lich King. And while the Lich King doesn't have control over her anymore. Sometimes she has nightmares about that period. And even during the day, sometimes he forces her to turn back into the zombie form she had while under his control. But slowly Aleria gets control about that form. She sees it as part a of her now, and tries to use it to her advantage.
