The Tale of Louisa Aubern
Louisa grew up in a troupe of traveling performers. Their acts ranged from dramatic performances to daring feats. Louisa’s father was a fire-breather, and her mother was a tightrope walker. When Louisa was of age, she decided to join the show herself. She was both an actress and a tightrope walker with the impressive ability to fire juggle.
Louisa was quite mischievous and would play tricks on mean people. In one town where their performance was heckled, she picked the pocket of every audience member in attendance before she was discovered, and her parents forced her to give back the money. From then on, she was more careful... at least with the people she told about her thefts. She quickly learned that it was easy to pick someone’s pocket if they were distracted by a performance, a story, or fire, and she used that to her advantage at every turn.
Louisa’s troupe traveled around a lot, and she hardly had time to make friends before the troupe cast off. Her best friends were her books, which she collected at every town and city they came across. She loved tales of adventure and romance and soon realized that she couldn’t be content living her days out with the troupe. She wanted her own story that people would tell for eons to come.
Louisa applied for Eastridge and was accepted into the Thief program. She already had a strong sense for misdirection and sleight of hand and excelled in her studies. Whenever she grew homesick, she could strongarm all her friends into putting on a performance of ‘Ren and Kaethe’s Kiss at the Waterfall’ or ‘Ren’s Last Battle’, much to the delight of the other students who happily played their part as the audience. She soon became known for her excellent theater.
Louisa spent much of first year at Eastridge in the library. She was fascinated by the seemingly endless supply of tomes, and her friends had to made an effort to pull her away from reading for occasional frivolity.
Louisa grew very close with a Cleric named Corent who healed her sprained ankle after a particularly bad in-action assignment. Corent was always really worried for her, and she delighted in teasing him by juggling fire and dancing on narrow window ledges. Though she never hurt herself, Corent’s constant concern made her realize that he had feelings for her, and eventually, the two fell in love.
Upon graduation, Louisa and Corent joined the fight against Serath, though with their unique skills they didn’t quite manage to end up on the front lines. They did, however, have one very successful undercover mission where they infiltrated a Serathian fortress under the guise of being performers and successfully brought back Serathian battle plans for the next wave of attack--information which saved many Easdenian lives.
Louisa and Corent had many other adventures together, and by the time they were ready to retire from adventuring, she had created a lasting legacy of tales that their children and traveling troupes would tell for years to come.
