The Ineffable Mysteries of Ophion
A recently-graduated paladin of Kaia in the town of Palaos.
Tessa is a young woman born and raised in Palaos. She was no stranger to hardship while growing up in a poor family, and helped her father on his fishing boat as soon as she was able to walk. When a storm took them by surprise one day, killing her father and brothers, she washed up on shore and found herself utterly alone. The temple of Kaia took her in, though, and taught her to carry on and be strong.
Though Kaia has claimed her family, she has found new purpose in life protecting the townspeople.
