The Lost Continent
Challa Redroot was a promising young ascetic warrior at the Priory of the Open Palm until she was raped and murdered by Fligg Errol and Mia the Mage at the age of 16. She enrolled in the Priory after Marlis Thane happened to spot her knocking heads together in a Walsh alleyway. Using her stipend from the battle school primarily to pay for housing for her widowed mother, Vasha, Challa had risen to the top of the Priory’s rolls in only a couple of years and was due to graduate within a few weeks; the day before her death she interviewed for a position as a bodyguard at a local magic shop.
Marlis Thane was initially charged with her death—a result of misleading evidence left on her body by Errol—but her mother contracted The Party to investigate her murder; after some difficulty they were able to find and expose the real culprits.
