Across the Universe
Elf from the Harkenwood, a forrested area southeast of the town of Fallcrest.
Laanoa’s family dwelt in the Harken Forest, just twenty miles south of Fallcrest. Growing up among a close-knit family of Rangers, she found the family calling in her blood as well. She was also born with the spirit of an adventurer – her grandfather Dorlen had spent many years fighting off goblins and kobolds, though he had never achieved much noteriety for his work. At the age of 29, quite young by human standards, Laanoa’s tribe was attacked by a roving pack of drakes. Though the twenty or so elves acquitted themselves handily, the massive creatures decimated the tribe. When the dust settled, only Laanoa and two others from her tribe survived. Fearing the creature’s return, and with provisions too low to survive the coming winter, Laanoa decided to make her way north to Fallcrest to find her fortune there. The other two decided the nearer, though smaller, villages of Harkenwold would be their destination. Saying her final goodbyes to the last of her family, Laanoa set off, spotting a merchant caravan as it made its way up the King’s Road from Harkenwold toward Fallcrest.
