Bio:

Backstory

Victoria was born the only daughter of a pair of adventurers and scholars who worked at Cormyr University. Her father specialized in Garundi lore and held a special fascination with the Mwangi Expanse. His particular obsession was finding the Pool of Life, the magical pool of water where Mwangi legend said life originated.

One day, they left to find the Pool, leaving their young daughter Victoria behind with a close and trusted friend at the University. They never returned or sent word. Two years were spent trying to find them but nothing ever came of it. After ruling that they had passed away somewhere in the Mwangi Expanse, custody of young Victoria was passed to their closest friend and colleague.

Victoria grew up in the halls of the University surrounded by academia and it rubbed off on her. Always precocious and curious, her mind actively ate up all information she came across. But her special interest always sat with her father’s work; specifically, his journal, which she would spent years trying to piece together.

She attended the University and graduated as a Professor Antiquities and Linguistics, taking a teaching post soon after.

Only two months ago, the Dean approached her about an opportunity to explore uncharted regions of the Mwangi Expanse, an opportunity she eagerly accepted.
