Thought it was time to type up another character background story.
Ashantira was born to a Bosmer mother and a Dunmer father. Her father was a merchant turned adventurer who ended up travelling into Valenwood where he became thoroughly besotted by a Bosmeri archer/thief.
After a few years, they had a daughter...
When Ashantira was a baby [SIZE="1"](no idea what that would be in elven years
)[/size], her parents decided to take a trip together and left her in the care of a relative...
While seeking shelter in a cavern during a storm they were set upon by Imperial bandits... Her father survived the encounter long enough to be able to return Valenwood and as healers attempted to stem the flow of blood he managed to explain what had happened. He died shortly thereafter.
Ashantira, once she was old enough to hear what had happened to her parents (whom she has no memories of) started to harbour a dislike for Imperials, even though she knew at a rational level that bandits are the same everywhere.
As she matured into a young woman, she mastered the arts of stealth that all Bosmeri have a natural gift for. However, she had also inherited an interest in magic from her father, and studied it as much as the wild setting of her home could permit. Ultimately, however, she needed to leave in order to hone her growing abilities in the schools of Illusion, Alteration and Mysticism, and, she travelled far and wide, eventually ending up, ironically, in Cyrodiil.
She discovered that elves (especially those of mixed blood) in the Imperial province were frequently viewed as second-class citizens, and it was difficult to make ends meet... Thus, Ashantira began to draw upon her thieving abilities in order to survive.
A traitorous "ally," jealous of her rapid advancement in the local thieve's guild decided to end her career by selling her name to a corrupt Imperial magistrate....
And that is how she ended up in Vvardenfell....
