Maya Qwan: Maya
The youngest member of her clan, Maya was undertaking the coming-of-age ritual Long Night by herself in the wilderness. When she returned, she found her family murdered and their possessions plundered. The extreme attention given to the dead bodies indicated this was something personal. But whoever it was, they had missed her, and they had missed the clan's most treasured artefact: the Starblade. A sword from the Old Times that was seemingly unbreakable with a blade that never dulled. Maya had carried this with her during her ritual - indeed she was learning the Way of the Sword from her grandfather, techniques passed down by word of mouth since the ancient era. Now she was alone.
Now she sought answers. Now she sought revenge.
