Forgotten Realms - The Moonshaes
Halfling Soldier from Halbrook and Harper Agent
Ethne was born to a rather rich and prominent family in an all-halfling settlement in the Llyrath Forest named Halbrook. She is the second child with an older brother, two sisters immediately following her in birth order, and a baby brother to fill out the ranks of the five family siblings. Her father, in addition to being a wealthy merchant, was the town’s mayor. There are claims on her mother’s side of the family that they have a noble bloodlines from the lands of Luiren. Ethne’s eldest brother was destined to inherit most of the family business, so Ethne was a bit rebellious trying to find her niche in the world. She had a strong bond with her uncle, who was the captain of the town militia. Ethne spent her early adult years in the militia, and then left Halbrook as a mercenary once her enlistment period was over. Ethne ran into the huntress Caylinne in the Llyrath Forest, and the two became fast friends. Ethne had several romantic relationships in her youth, but these never worked out. She had a rival for many of the affections of the other boys. Her one regret in life is that she trespassed on this rival’s family property and discovered a spellcaster’s laboratory on the family compound. She fled the trespassed-upon property, but still feels guilty that she let her malice toward her rival drive her to do something considered illegal. If Ethne had one drawback, it would be her loyalty to family, friends, and home. She might even consider breaking laws in pursuit of protecting them.
