Edoma is a girl who (usually) dresses as a man under the name of Edwyn.
Being an experienced entertainer and actress, she can assume a wide range
of disguises and personæ, usually dressing in a green forester's outfit.
Edoma's parents were travelling entertainers, and she grew up in the
troupe. She started learning the trade before she could speak, and
excelled in acting, storytelling, and the like. The family often
visited noble courts to perform, and was generally popular earning a
fairly decent living.
When she was nine, her parents were killed in an attack of wild enemies,
and she was cursed with lycanthrope. This left her lonely and depressed,
and even though the troupe took care of her, she no longer felt at ease
with them. A year later a noblewoman liked her acting so much that she
took a pity for her, and let her stay at the court as a house performer.
The years at the court were privileged, with almost no duties, except for
entertaining the lordship in the evenings. Being neither servant nor
noble, she could very much walk where she wanted and spend time with anyone
whom she wanted. Almost everybody loved her. She was able to train and
study with other children, and learnt basic reading and some martial
abilities, excelling at thrown weapons (axes and daggers).
When she was sixteen, she was caught up in a scandal with the lord's son,
and had to flee the castle/manor. For about a year, she lived it rough.
Learning that she absolutely sucks at outdoor skills, the year was
particularly harsh. It was during this year that she took the identity as
Edwyn. Then, fortunately, she was able to up with some of the old troupe,
and she joined them for a while. This was a break to get into her old
life. For the most part, she tours alone, but occasionally she teams up
with other travelling entertaines, both the old troupe and others.
After the years at the court, she was no longer the innocent little girl,
aiming to please everyone around her with her fair voice and entertaining
stories. She had got a taste for a good life, and had grown ambitious.
Socialising with nobility on a daily basis, she had also picked up a lot of
their customs and etiquette, and learnt a bit about the secrets and
intrigues. This she wanted to take advantage of.
Entertaining at noble houses, she took every opportunity to gossip and to
scry upon their activities. This earned her many secrets which she has
since used for blackmail.
