A nervous sort of tadpole, she was adopted by a sect of Elven and Half-Elven Monks from Nathlekh, who taught her meditation and martial prowess and sheltered her from the many prejudices of the general populace. She was trained to be an ascetic warrior, but, as a small child is prone to be, is terribly naive. Her cloistered upbringing didn’t help. Over time, however, she grew more confident and self assured as well as gifted in the physical, if not emotional skills of fighting. This was exacerbated when she fell in love.
It was with a passing half-elf man, who Gil thought was rather dashing. Being refused and in a fit of emotion that really can only be described as “being a teenager”, she set out to find herself and love (as one expects from an emotional teenager of Faerun, she is obsessed with Sune). This pretty much explains how she ended up in slavery.
While the forced labor of the slave caravan would be disheartening to many, she took it calmly after some initial histrionics. She went back to the meditative practices of her caregivers and started seriously focusing her will inward. She used the forced labor to hone herself to be even more destrous and tougher than before. If she escapes, she hopes to make name for herself and, one day, gain revenge for this injustice. In the name of love.
As she makes obvious in calmer surroundings, she adores Sune and believes that through meditation and hard work, everyone can come to love their fellow man. Or Bullywug.
