Personality: Tristana is very childish at times. Not in the sense she is immature, but rather in the sense that she is amazed by even the simplest things. Even things like a plain of grass or a small forest will make her excited to see and explore it. Tristana is very excited about the world but that doesn't mean she is unaware of the dangers of the world. In fact she reminds herself daily that she will probably get killed. However that doesn't stop her from still being excited about everything.
Tristana has low self esteem. To the point where it is almost self hatred but not quite. You see, she doesn't hate herself but she has accepted that she is a monster. An ugly monster that nobody will love. This is due to her appearance and her uncle's treatment of her growing up. Still she persists on. Instead of beating herself up, she is determined to make up for these flaws. Tristana is easy to distract. She has a difficult time paying attention unless she is extremely passionate about it. Tristana would rather hide her real feelings about a person than say anything negative. With the exception of when somebody is asking for her advice. Even then she will put any negatives down gently as possible.
Tristana is poor at being social. She can talk with people but she is ignorant of social cues and polite manners. Mostly because she has never been taught many manners. Thinking up of small talk or conversation starters is a nightmare for her. But when discussion falls over something she likes, well she won't shut up. Tristana is a very determined person. Once she has her mind set, she will follow it until the end. Even if it means getting herself killed. When it comes to other people she can be a bit distrustful at first but she tries to be nice no matter what. However once she likes somebody she is incredibly loyal to them. Which leads to trouble when she has more than one friend.
Weaknesses: Her lack of fighting abilities, lack of confidence, social skills, her looks, and her inexperience with the world.
Tristana Deformem grew up in a tiny cabin. She has no idea who her parents really are but she does know she has a relative. Uncle Nevin, a tall man with blonde hair and green eyes with a bit of a beard. Nevin was considered handsome among many. He had an athletic body, a chiseled jaw, piercing eyes, and a dashing smile. He was known as the most handsome in his village in Corval Basin.
However Nevin returned to his cabin one day with a child. Many of the village women were frightened that he had a wife as a result but they never saw the child again or any sign of a wife so they assumed that he was just taking care of a child for a close friend or family member. However this wasn't exactly the case. The child that Nevin returned to the cabin with was Tristana. Tristana was a toddler at the time but she already had some hair. She had red hair, brown eyes, and looked rather healthy. She would have been considered average if it wasn't for the long hideous scar stretching from her forehead to her chin, her damaged white eye, and her freckles. Tristana was ugly to put it simply, but Nevin had to take her in.
So Nevin raised her, giving her the minimum of care needed. She learned the Adeluda Trade Language, reading (through books about language), how to function as a human, and who the deities of the realm are. Otherwise she knows nothing. She knows nothing of other species, cities, history, fighting, kings, queens, magic, or even basic things like what a sheep is. This is because she has been locked in a room in the cabin where there is only one window, a window that is sealed shut. If anybody came by the window, she was ordered to hide. Uncle Nevin himself was cold and distant to her, although he never hit her, Nevin was extremely unkind. He would call her monster, ugly, stupid, failure, scarface, dead-eye, and girl. When he called her Tristana, it meant he was in a good mood. She had two pairs of clothing which she washed everyday and was given two meals a day. She washed her clothing with the daily bucket of water she was given to wash all the clothes. Her life was rather dull after the age of fifteen.
After she turned fifteen, Nevin stopped teaching her anything. Instead he gave her a list of chores to do in her room, food, water (to drink), and supplies for chores. Her days started exactly the same everyday for the past three years. Wake up, wash self, get dressed, receive supplies and chores, eat food, drink water, do laundry, sweep floor of room, make the bed, clean dishes, look out the window, dust the window, clean up supplies, wait, receive food, eat food, sleep. Uncle Nevin never let her outside for fear of letting the world see her. She tried escaping several times but was punished for it. One time, when she was ten, she almost got out of the cabin but was caught. Uncle Nevin gave her water but no food for a week. After that she didn't bother trying to escape. Since she had a lot of free time, she did physical exercise. She would jump up and down, try to climb the walls, try to pick up her bed, try to pick up something less heavy than the bed, run in place, push herself off the ground over and over again, see how long she could stand with her hands, etc. Eventually this did lead to her building some strength.
One day her Uncle Nevin died. He had died from a drunken brawl with a woman. Nevin's last dying breaths were to let the monster out of the room. The woman was confused so she went to his cabin to see this monster. The woman managed to find the key and unlock Tristana's door. Inside Tristana was sitting down, waiting. Tristana was frightened and ran to the other side of the room. The woman, not knowing what to do simply left. Now Tristana was free. But she had no idea where to go or what to do. She only knew what Nevin had told her, which was that she was a monster and the world would want to kill her/rip her insides out/burn her/other stuff. From what she has been told, the world is nothing but darkness, evil, and cruelty. She believed him but at the same time, surely the world was not only that? Just evil and nothing more? Could the world simply be summed up in being only bad? Was it really as simple as that?
Tristana got her stuff from taking it from Uncle Nevin's cabin. Then she met a kind traveler who taught her a bit about magic and herbs before leaving her. The traveler was kind but was distant because of Tristana's appearance. So Tristana started using her robe hood to hide her face. She simply wants to learn about the world that she had been locked away from her whole life.
