Thank you, anonymous.
Just what I was going to say. Your characters seem very one-dimensional because they have no defects.
Don't get discouraged, though. I didn't have that great a start, either.
By the way, you didn't have to say 'her mother' ever time, you could've just said 'she': "one day when her mother left to go get some magical items her mother never returned. Now at the age of 20 she searches for her mother and for the person who kidnapped her." Go to Comment
Slow down, turbogenics.
Drop the controller.
Step away from Final Fantasy X.
Now, where are the defects in this character? The character is nothing but good things. It's somewhat unrealistic in this way. Perhaps just something, like a weakness to pain, or an intense fear of bugbears, or something like that...
The plot progresses!

The creation of intelligent magical weapons is not an exact science and there are occasional failures, as such think of causing a little more stress to your players by "rewarding" them with an insane magical weapon
Agrophobic, refuses to come out of the scabbard without a strength check to draw it.
Haemaphobic: afraid of blood, fight at a penalty against any blooded creatures but really good against undead, elementals etc
Schizophrenic, not just one mind in your sword, lets have half a dozen minds in there, all different and bound to cause confusion
