Ve'kyna Archila (Chief Huntress)
Archila (Cavalry Leader)
Athelfi (First Sister)
Faela was born to a Celtic warlord in Gaul, her mother was a
Celtic Amazon, she was taken to be a slave to the warlord. After
Faela's birth the warlord realized that his slave would now have
an even better reason to escape, so that the girl would live as an
Amazon and taste freedom as her mother once did.
Faela's mother Shatana, however, never attempted to escape
until Faela was eleven.
During her years in the warlords camp, Faela saw every cruel and
malicious act that human beings could do to one another. She hated
the warlord for what he had done to the free people of Gaul and
for eleven years trained in secret with her mother for the day
when freedom would take them way, lifting them upon its back and
carrying them back to there sisters.
Eleven years was along time to wait, but Faela had patience
that was unheard of in Amazons, she spent most of her time, when
she wasn't doing chores or training, in the stables. She felt a
connection with horses, the way they ran free and as fast as the
wind. Faela found one day, when she was in the breaking ring with
an untrained horse that she could communicate with them, in a
special kind of way. If she sang or whistled the right tune, the
horse would do whatever she commanded, this gift came in handy
whenever the army would mount up for an attack on a village. Faela
would sneak out of her tent and sing to the horses, they would
rear up, buck and kick until the warriors couldn't control them
and had to wait for them to settle down.
At eleven the chance for escape finally came to Faela and her
mother, The warlord had to leave the camp for a special
negotiation with a village there tent was left unguarded and
unwatched. Faela and her mother snuck out of there tent and made
for the forest, unfortunately the Warlord was on his way back and
his men caught Faela's mother. Faela hid in the forest until night
fall and back to the outskirts of the camp, from there she could
hear her mother screaming and see the flames. They had burnt
Shatana at the stake.
Faela took off, back into the forest and spent the next year,
heading south, into Roman territory. She was caught and beaten at
one stage by a towns priest for not obeying the towns Law and
paying money to the temple. Faela fled Rome and headed east,
When she was sixteen she met two Amazon warriors, Tekla and
Shavadi. Both were traveling back to there home lands after being
separated from there tribe. They were 25 and 22, but neither of
them shunned the young girl, they took her under there wing, and
taught her everything they new. Because of there teaching Faela
grew into a proud warrior, but she yearned for a home and a place
to call here own. She said good bye to her friends and began her
search for a tribe of Amazons who she could call sisters. She
stumbled by accident into the forest of your people and hopes to
join your tribe.
Faela is 6 foot 3'' tall, with Short dark blood red hair and
Emerald green eyes. She speaks with a slight accent due to the
fact that as a child she and her mother would only talk Celtic to
each other. Faela has never sworn any allegiance to any god or
goddess, she has her own belief in a goddess who to many is
similar to Artemis. Her animal totem would be the horse and the
panther. She carries all kinds of weapons and is a master at any
weapon she touches, she can quite literally hear the wind, earth
and trees speaking to her, she has a tattoo on her back, its of
Celtic design, with many swirls and knot work. Faela wears clothes
that are practical and good for battle.
Faela is loyal, trust worthy, friendly and open to advice, she
does have an extremely bad temper, but has learned to keep it
under control. She is the kind of warrior you wont watching your
back in a fight, she keeps her promises and never says anything
she doesn't mean.
Faela has a wolf pup named Quillian who has grown up in the
Amazon tribe. Her preferred weapons are the bow, the crossbow and
the sword. Her hutmate is Deirdre. She has two horses, a mare
named Nightmare and a mare named Darkfire. She speaks Latin and
Gaelic and knows a smattering of Greek, Norse and Chin.
