SotDL: Godbreakers: Daphne
Daphne is originally from Last Hope, but was given a different name as a girl, one she barely remembers. Given an accumulation of factors - her family´s poor reputation, the deaths of her mother and her siblings, the disgrace of her brothers and sisters - she fled as a child. Wandering the world, she first found her way as a fisherwoman, mending nets and casting a line from a boat in a village whose name she barely remembers. She then found herself inspired by the Old Faith and traveled to holy sites as a pilgrim. Meeting a sage, she worked with her as a student of the Occult until her mistress´ mysterious disappearance. Finding herself on the road once again, Daphne found herself in a village stricken with the Plague. She remembers little of the period but finding herself once again on the road, her face horribly disfigured and her body broken. In a daze, she found her way back to Last Hope, living off alms despite a reserve of coin taken from her former mistress. She subsisted for a while sweeping the church, until the death of [the priest] and even helping out the local law enforcement, given her ability to go unnoticed. She has not looked her father up since her return.
Daphne is short and stocky. She would be a fairly normal-looking human but for her terrible disfigurement, the result of a plague, that has rendered her hideous to look upon: She looks like a monster. Children often cry when they see her, the weak of heart might faint, and at least one person has vomited after seeing her. Age young adult, 28 y.o.

- Update backstory & notes
She´s hideously scarred from disease, ran away from home (but I think home was here and she returned, perhaps her family doesn´t know she is she because of the scarring), has/had nine siblings, the youngest of whom is famous (!?), has been a pilgrim and an academic (occult), has disreputable ancestors and three siblings are alive but disgraced. So, I reckon she has been living as a cleaner in the church until the priest died and has been aimless since then.
