Disposition:

Having been raised in a mercenary company, many of the companies values, such as loyalty to the other members of the company and keeping a contract, are very important to her. She is a bit concerned that her rank would alienate older members of the company but so far there have been no problems.

She is a bit on the wild side and enjoys partying and the company of men. Her father taught her to not take lovers inside of the mercenary company and has scrupulously followed his advice. Otherwise, she wants to enjoy her life a little bit if she can.

Aurelia has little problems with most races although she dislikes supernatural evil creatures such as vampires and demons. She was also taught to be very cautious about the Coalition but the person who taught her most of the ways of a combat techno-wizard was a Coalition Commando so she realizes that not all that comes from the Coalition is bad or dangerous.

Background:


Aurelia has been in the mercenary company “Texas Irregulars” for practically her entire life. It is a rarity among mercenary companies in that it is composed of almost explusively techno-wizards. Her father is Charlie Blade, the founder and commander of the well known Techno-Wizard mercenary company. She has no memories of her mother due to being given up as an infant, and her father, along with other members of the mercenary company, raised her since she could remember.


While her father has never told her anything about her mother and simply shakes his head whenever she has tried to ask him questions about her, Aurelia has been able to get a pretty accurate explanation from listening in on others in the company talking.


Not much of a story to be honest. Her mother seems to have been a saloon girl in the west of mostly Asian descent when the company passed through and Aurelia’s father engaged the saloon girl’s services for a period of time. The woman became pregnant from him and she did not want the child. He decided to raise the child himself instead of having the infant put up for adoption. Aurelia has considered looking for her mother but in the end saw no real point in it.


It was only natural that the young girl would become a techno-wizard like her father and like many other members of the mercenary company. She learned the rudiments of magic at an early age and had learned a lot of spells from her father’s tomes as well. James Forester, the officer that is in charge of the combat techno-wizards, was a sort of uncle to her and taught her how to fight in hand to hand including commando training. As a result, she became a combat techno-wizard.


Initially Aurelia served with her father’s company and while relatively young and inexperienced, she quickly showed herself as being brave and resourceful. Soon after joining the company officially, she was give the rank of Lieutenant by her father. Surprisingly, there was little resentment of Aurelia being promoted so quickly from soldiers whom had served with the company long enough to be considered veterans. Most of them have known her for years and many knew her since she was a child.


While some of the new recruits have been jealous of her rank and status, Aurelia has always worked hard and taken multiple dangerous missions. As a result, she has never given reason for others to be able to say that she has been promoted above her ability.


To see how she would do with groups besides techno-wizards and to improve her skills with other units, especially large units, she decided to take a leave of absence and joined a mercenary company called “Fighting Tigers.” While relatively inexperienced, they gave her the rank of Lieutenant like she was in the “Texas Irregulars” and she has since been promoted to the rank of Captain.


While with Fighting Tigers, she was able to get a large amount of crystal from a Zaayr Crystal Dragon who was a member of her team and plans to replace many of her techno-wizard devices with devices using the special crystals. Her team found their way to England where she fought in several additional battles and has visited the Nog Heng Millennium tree among other places on the island. While at the Millennium tree, she had a relationship with one of the Nog Heng druids from whom she learned much about Camelot and the British Isles in general.
