Personality
Ilex is a no nonsense type, and just doesn`t understand metaphors. She never smiles, always has the same battle hardened expression on her face.

Background:
There is talk that Ilex is in the blood family of old King Mortspear, hence all the emeralds that resemble green eyes she owns. No one knows for certain.

When Ilex was young, her family was constantly defending themselves against sea raiders. These vermin popped up in annoying places, attacked, then vanished like smoke.

Ilex`s father, Mortem lost patience and went out, fully armored to do battle with the leader; a sinewy wearat, leaving Ilex with her mother, Lamina. The wearat declined the challenge and Mortem charged, only to be hit by twelve poison arrows. Losing life fast, Mortem threw himself at them, snapping his blade and throwing the pieces into their faces.

Unable to watch the slaughter helplessly for any longer, Lamina charged. Now the vermin were faced with two angry wildcats, one of which was almost dead.

A lot were killed that day. But the most important couple were a pair of wildcats, lying paw in paw.

Later, a score of the survivors found Ilex, covered by a thin blanket. They chained her to an oar on their ship and she became an oarslave for three seasons. She was often starved and whipped for not rowing fast enough.

One day the ship hit rocks and sank, but Ilex and one other slave, her oar friend, a stoat managed to escape by ripping the oar from it`s socket and getting to the panicking top deck. But the Captain chased them, and slew the stoat. Ilex, still with the stoat chained to the oar dragged him and the oar over the side and jumped overboard.

Ilex spent three days getting to shore and a season to recover. Once she was strong enough, she ripped the chains off her wrists and wandered away. Ever since then she has been seeking revenge on the vermin who killed her parents and her only friend.
