Denna Howling "The Silverwolf" (nemedeus)

Post by nemedeus »

Name: Denna Bearing "The (Bloody) Silverwolf"
Occupation: Hound Sergeant
Age: almost 30
Gender: Female
Religion: State Religion
Parents: Brandon and Anne Bearing; Smith & Housewife
Summary: wiry, unkempt woman with a twitchy eye and a crooked sneer; a ravenous wolf on a leash (profile picture pending)

Denna spent her childhood in a campaign trail, where her father did armour and weapon repairs. That was until the corps suffered a (now legendary) devastating loss. She put her sword skills to use -- which she'd picked up from one of the mercenaries, a man called Renardo -- and killed for the first time.
She managed to escape with Brandon, but Anne was separated from them.

When she was fourteen, Brandon was tried for witchcraft and burnt at the stake.
With a little subterfuge and a lot of luck, Denna discovered that the accuser, a man called Roderick Bower, was himself a demon cultist. She tipped off a company of Hounds, who in turn destroyed Bower's cult. In the aftermath, they made the girl an offer she couldn't refuse: to join in with their ranks and become a Hound herself -- an easy choice, as of her now being an orphan.

Although she never heard from Renardo again, Denna can't shake the feeling that the old mercenary is still out there somewhere.
