I was born minutes before my twin sister, Lia, much to everyones shock. Twins it seems are very rare among the Gith and there were no signs until we were born. I was the calm one, unnaturally calm so I’ve been told even for the Githzerai. My sister on the other hand would always let anyone know what she was feeling. We were never apart from each other, She always trying to push me to see how much trouble she could get me to cause, me always trying to slow her down and talk her out of her schemes. Even with all the whispers of our birth. My birth a good sign and hers being a bad sign. Superstitions of the Elders is what I always told her and she should pay no attention. But she was never good at holding things in and not letting the whispers get to her. She would often explode on others with words or fist it didn’t matter to her. I was often defending here and talking her and others out of a fight.
Then the night came that I was sent off to visit a relative without my sister much to my protest. But our parents insisted I go. Thats the night when she disappeared. The next day I was informed that Lia had been taken by an evil cult right from out of our house. Nothing was taken no one was hurt but somehow they took her, It didn’t make sense to me even at my very young age. No one seemed to care other then myself, our parents never tried to look they just accepted that she was gone and told me I need to do the same thing. For years I couldn’t let go a part of me was taken and it consumed my childhood.
I started training with the local Monks trying regain my inner peace. Years went by but I finnaly accepted the fact that my sister was dead and that I needed to get on with my life. By then my skills as a monk had greatly surpassed those of my peers. This did not go unnoticed by the village elders who it seemed had been keeping an eye on me, Waiting for the time when I would be of use to them. At the age of 10 they wanted to send me off to live in a monastery to be trained by the greatest monk in our lands. My parents agreed and so I went leaving my parents and our village behind to live in a monastery 1 days ride away. That is where I met Greth, who would soon become like a father to me.
By the age of 13 Greth was sending me out with the villages war bands to help defend the lands from raiders and anyone who would threaten the areas farmers or towns. That was my element, large skirmishes where I could use my speed and awareness to move through the field of battle and strike precisely at our enemies. Greth and the elders were pleased with my success at such a young age, that by the time I was 17 I was in command of my own war band.
One night We learned of a cult of Bane living within our lands and attacking local farmers and merchants. So my war band was dispatched to deal with this Cult. As I sent my men into battle It looked like an easy victory, mostly humans with no real training my men should make short work of them. As I watch the skirmish from the back I noticed a dazzling bright blade cleaving my men left and right. All who got near it got cut down, Id had never seen such skills with a blade in a band of marauders like this. It was clear that I would have to deal with this swordsman myself. When I moved closer I realized this was no human but a Gith and a female. Her back was turned to me as she cut down more of my men. I moved in to put an end to the carnage when just as i was about to strike she spun on me and raised the glowing blade. Thats when I saw her face. I had not seen it in more then 10 years but it was her no doubt, Lia. I stood stupid for a moment, a smile and tears swept across my face. Then I realized she was still bearing a blade at me as we stood staring at each other time seemed to stop all around. It seemed like minutes but was only moments, then she screamed and turned her blade on the cultist she was fighting for. Instinctively I jumped by her side and together we ended the fight.
I took her back to our encampment and we talked for days. My men were uneasy in her presence and wanted nothing to do with her, that was clear. Many remembered the old whispers about my sister and seeing her now with a cult of Bane did not make anything better. After awhile I could no longer hold my men back from speaking there minds, nor my sister from speaking hers to them. I watched pondering what to do, What Greth would want me to do. I would not loose my sister again after all this time, and I wont spill the blood of my Kin on her behalf. So I did the only thing I could do. I took my sister by the hand and we left, never to return.
We traveled and stayed where we were left alone. That was not many places it turns out. Lia still is not one to let things go. Every stare or whisper is met by harsh words or a raised sword. We continued west until we came to Amn. We were somewhat left alone there. We lived as shut in as we could, stealing at night what we needed to survive. Taking jobs as common thugs just to get by.
The time has come to leave Amn. I feel Lia has made to many enemies. Ive taken a job on a caravan for my sister and I, Guards of course… common thugs again… But its time to move on before my sister finds whatever it is she seems to be looking for. I fear the day she finds it, I feel whatever it is its a path that I cannot follow.
