Aela Clearbranch is a middle aged Wood Elf Ranger. She has lived her whole life in a tribe deep in the woods of Aeltendar. There she has raised two beautiful and passionate sons. Her two children had recently left their tribe in search of their own adventures. To her tribe, Aela was an important addition. Thanks to her knowledge of plants, herbs and fungi, she is able to heal almost anything. To share her plant wisdom, she had taken on two acolytes to teach them her ways. Besides her medicinal know how, she was also the tribes best archer.
Call to adventure
One morning she woke up with an immense feeling of despair. She ran to the tribe’s Oracle. An old woman who lived next to the river in an old cottage overgrown by grape vines. The Oracle told her devastating news. Her sons were no longer walking the paths of this world. Aela tumbled into a depression. During this dark period she turned bitter. She lost all connection with her tribe. Her acolytes, her neighbours, her husband. Meditation and the energy of the Earth was the only thing keeping her sane. Eventually she left her home. Using her ranger skills to search for the murderers of her two sons. Searching for vengeance. On her journey, she is looking for any information about the mysterious murders of her sons. Eventually this will turn into a manhunt.
