Lythia has a mismatched set of skills; thieving abilities with a code of conduct; mercenary fighting style; merchant savvy, and mariner. As a shaman, she prefers water and air spirits.Personality
Lythia is clever, opportunistic, mercurial, manipulative, witty, humorous, passionate, debauched, and underhanded, but always good-natured. Her slanged and nonchalant speech and mannerisms often belie her true intentions. As a captain, Lythia is all business and woe to the fool who stands her way of running it smoothly. Like most good captains and mercenaries, Lythia remains levelheaded under pressure, abreast of the needs and best interests of her crew and responses accordingly.
Lythia is the only daughter of an adventurous pirate and sometimes-honest merchant sailor half-dark elf, half-common elf father, Ados, and Azarnian woman, Tialis.
Ados ran into a spot of trouble with a fleet of battleships from Flaim and Alania set to the task of sinking any and all ships guilty of acts of piracy. Lythias father, being captain of one of those notorious ships, was cornered near the Azarns. Ados hid the ship and he and his crew joined with a local tribe of the Azarns until the fleets disbanded. It was during this time he fell in love and married a woman of the tribe, Tialis, thus producing their only child, Lythia.
At the age of ten, Lythias lost her mother to illness and she was left to her father. Ados took her out to sea where she was reared in the proud and ennoble traditions of a pirate. They sailed from the Azarns with her father, never to return home again. She spent her formative years upon the open sea, taking up her end of the family business.
Eventually filled with youths wanderlust, she parted sails from her father for dry land at the age of eighteen to create a halfway decent reputation for herself separate from the notorious Captain Ados. He left her in Raiden, where Lythia first sought out her fathers parents. The mismatched dark elf-common elf couple lived in Raiden, which was the only place such a union could be accepted. Pleased to meet their half-elf granddaughter, Feanor and Niniel told Lythia about their family history. As a gift, they gave her a sword that matched her fathers. Knowing that Raiden was no beginning for someone so young and full of fine promise, they sent Lythia on her way.
Now called Lokei, she began a life of a mercenary. Through her time as a mercenary, she also recruited comrades who were willing to join her crew. After around ten years, she had amassed a small following, forming an impromptu band. They were hired as the body guards for a Valsian lord who wanted to sail to Raiden. They stayed with him as far as Raiden, and when the lord disembarked his vessel, they lifted anchor and sailed off into the north with his ship. For this illustrious well-crafted act of piracy, Lythia earned her commendation as captain, a ship, and an ancestral elven sword from Captain Ados.
Years have passed, and Captain Lythia has commanded her ship, The Siren, to legendary success. However, her ship was badly damaged and many of her crew lost in a battle with a sea serpent. They were able to drive it off, but not after the beast had taken its toll. The Siren was taking on water, but Lythia was able to get it to the Isle of Wreckage, just to her south and beached The Siren on the shore. Repairs were needed, and her crew was diminished. Lythia was compelled to avenge her crew and ship, but to do so, she would need to be flexible to find a way.
