Awake the Metal: Alexander (v2.0)
Born to a strict Elven family in the city of Desna’s Well with a merchant and part-time militia soldier father, Liaqtres was always a curious child. She was very restricted in her earlier years, maintaining her studies in magic and combat, though she never got practice with either. She studied mostly on necromancy, always being interested in the undead due to their rarity in Desna’s Well, making her current situation rather ironic. In between her studies, on the rare occasions her mother would leave the house, Lia tended to sneak out of the house to spy on her dad’s work; sneaking into wagons, watching from a distance, etc. She learned plenty about layouts of structures, basic trade, and some people skills during her little “adventures”. But when the undead legion started attacking the wall of the human capitol of Lotheric, the army needed all the help they could, not really being picky with who they enlisted. Liaqtres saw this as her chance to study the undead up close, and maybe even take some out if she got the chance. When both her parents left to Lotheric, making sure to tell their daughter not to leave home, Lia sought after the Dwarves with her father’s cane sword in hand, and her undead slayer’s kit (along with some survival tools for her own well being) close by her side. Once she arrived at Mt. Dormun, she asked the head engineer for a gun. Lots of negotiations insued, and she earned herself a revolver of decent make, and plenty of ammo to go with it, but she was also lacking some thousand or so Gold, leaving her little wiggle room for other possessions. The long walk to Lotheric began, and Liaqtres was able to test out her new gun on plenty an enemy, and trained herself in the use of her father’s cane sword, which she took a liking to over the Dwarven piece of technology. Coincidence would have her cross paths with her parents yet again, as her main squad in the army, was the family she refused to obey. Her “platoon” was sent into the thick of the undead legion for a scouting mission, where she and her allies were ambushed by some rather strong members of the undead. Her parents were slain, which took Lia into a frenzy, and she traveled deeper into the heart of the wastelands, where she too, was felled. But the necrotic magic made her into an odd hybrid of a ghoul, one with human thoughts and emotions, and an inability to transmit the typical diseases of the creatures she hates the most.
