Elra grew up in a small hut just outside Threshold with her mother, who is an elf and her father, wa human. Though Elra is half elf herself she still looks rather human. Her mother sent her to the local wizard to train her in the art of magic while her father, being an ex-soldier taught her how to fight. There were arguments between her parents with regards to which more important, but Elra loved both and constantly trained. When not studying with her Wizard Master she learned learn hand to hand combat with her father. However it was her mother that taught her how to use the long bow.
Since her parents would only go into town to trade, Elra didn’t have much of a social life and found meeting new people very awkward and strange. There was another girl she knew of that was training in a similarlt private way to herself but Elra never had a chance to speak to her. She learned that the girl’s name was Klara. From afar Klara’s training looked rather similar to hers but when Elra ventured forward to have a look she was quite stunned to see that Klara was learning arts in a different way. She was attacking from behind! And only using daggers! Elra was also quite surprised at how quiet Klara was when she moved. There was also another thing Elra noticed: Klara’s beauty.
Elra herself was very tall (5f 10in) and when she wore clothes it looked like she was fat but it was actually muscle from years of training. She had mousy brown hair and quite a big nose but lovely elvish green eyes. She appeared to look quite boyish and when she walked it wasn’t graceful like Klara, she strutted like a man!
However, Elra was raised like a boy and so beauty was one thing she was never taught about. In fact, if Elra was made up in lovely gowns with make up she actually would be lovely.
One morning not long after being Shorn Elra was stopped by Klara.
“You’re the half elf, Elra, aren’t you?” Klara asked. Elra nodded. Klara smiled and told Elra that she had been recently been Shorn by her family and was looking for companions to join her on her journeys. Elra thought about this for a good couple of minutes and finally nodded her head and shook Klara’s hand.
