Scout Fighter - Damaged champion of the refugees - Brigid Quinn
From Burning Wiki
Damaged champion of the refugees.
Brigid was born clanless, just one more refugee displaced by the orcs. She tended her parent's sheep and, later, learned to hunt with her father.
She met Declan Quinn and fell for the charismatic leader of the bandits. They married despite (or perhaps because of) her parent's disapproval. Soon they had a child, a son they named Callum.
Declan was very influential amongst the refugees. He promised to protect anyone who swore alliegience to him. Brigid's parents refused, widening the rift between them. When orcs attacked the refugees, Declan led the defense. True to his word, he only protected those families who had sworn alliegience to him. Brigid's parents were unprotected. What Declan didn't know was that Brigid had been trying to set things right with her parents. She was visiting them when the orcs attacked. Her parents and baby Callum were killed and Brigid was terribly wounded. The scar which furrows her face is a lasting reminder of the terrible wound she recieved.
When Declan realised what had happened, he found Brigid's broken form and tended her wounds. He sat with her as she recovered, begging for her forgiveness. But when she reovered, she told him, 'I don't know you,' and walked away from Declan and his bandits.
Brigid joined the militia, protecting the edge of the Clan lands that the refugees had begun to call home. When she could learn no more from them she sought out a mercenary company. Brigid gained valuable combat experience; if she ever faced orcs again, she would be ready.
Returning to the refugees, she soon got a reputation for helping out. She became their champion. Brigid was practically farless in ther defense.
Now she thinks he way forward is for the refugees to gain acceptance within the Clans. It is obvious that the bandits and Declan cannot be relied upon...
