Backstory

Dara grew up in a small, nomadic tribe of mink-like beastkin who roamed the desert for survival. Her mother is the religious figure-head for the clan and Dara helped her mother perform funerary rites for their fallen clan-mates. This directly affected Dara because it forced her to see the terrible acts of harm that people inflicted on one another, as well as what disease does to the body, most notably the Sin-dragonei taint. Dara began to compassionately end the lives of all those who were sick and mortally wounded within her tribe. She began to passionately believe that Morghanos was guiding her to do this, so she began to kill in her dragon’s name. Dara believes that this helps people find their way to Morghanos in the afterlife.

Her clan found out that she was the one wielding the dagger that was mysteriously ending certain clan-members’s lives. Dara was immediately cast out from her tribe. Dara has since made her way to a large city and has set up shop as an assassin for hire. She only accepts bounties that are “deserved” and “blessed by Morghanos” in her mind, according to her religious beliefs.
