Human Fighter, Arcane Archer
“Skill holds far more weight in this world than luck or good intentions.”
Adelaide is a native to the city of Ashport. As a child, she tore into any book she could get her hands on: stories of adventure and heroes, histories, tomes of science and arcane magic. She absorbed as many as she could, wanted to master it all and one day find her own name within their pages. As a young woman, every hour was spent tirelessly working to be the best archer and scholar she could be. Determined to reach greatness in something. Her family drilled into her that the world was not a fair place, and that one could only rely on one’s own strengths to get by.
Which is why, against her family’s wishes, Adelaide leapt at the opportunity to become one of the Proctors, a private arcane police force run by the Birchfield Institute. Proctors were just about the closest thing to adventurers there was to be found in Ashport anymore, and they earned respect and fame while protecting the people of the city. A perfect fit, she thought. But Adelaide’s audition did not go as planned. Rejected from entry into the ranks of the Proctors, this proud and talented young woman was forced, for the first time in her life, to contend with absolute failure and shattered dreams.
A ray of hope appeared in the form of a recruiter, Roben, who offered her a job as a ‘Fetcher,’ a mercenary hired to do the Institute’s less savory work. These bounty hunters didn’t get paid as well, didn’t have the Institute’s resources, and didn’t get the prestige of hunting down magical artifacts or monsters. But Roben promised she could apply to the Proctors after a few years if she proved their talent. And Adelaide was ready to do just that. Though, she didn’t plan to take that long…
