Rheyna (Kassy) and Kat (Silveressa)
Called "Fingerdance", Rheyna grew up amidst the mud-slapped streets of Barrowtown in the Rills. She never knew her parents, and has survived by her wits (and with her knives--she is an uncanny knife-thrower, untrained, but posessed of some natural gift for handling and manipulating sharp objects--) for as long as she's had memory to remember. She makes her living as a common thief, and is quite audacious for her age.
A loner by nature, Rheyna's only friend is her lover and friend, "Kat" also a thief, and strangely an accomplished archer, from her "past life", of which she never speaks.
Recently, Rheyna had been caught red-handed by the city-guard for theft (a first time for everything), and sentenced to have her right hand chopped off for her crimes.
It was then, both their lives life took a turn in a new direction.
As Kat planned on how to spring her friend and lover from the local Gaol, before the "chop", she was approached by a huge axe-wielding stranger from parts unknown. The stranger, who called himself Odrin Tostro, offered to pay coin for Rheyna's freedom, and with Kat's help, accomplished just that, after some awkward negotiations with the city guard, and after the huge warrior assured Kat that he wasn't looking for a sex slave.
Now, the two young thieves have decided to accompany this new msyterious warrior on his own travels, away from grimy Barrowtown, to see where fate and destiny takes them.
Rheyna is seventeen years of age, with coal-dark hair (dyed from her natural white-blonde, as she always thouht her silver locks shone too much in the moonlight and attracted attention--not good for a thief) and emerald-green eyes. She is lithe, and slight, and constantly underestimated. She wears simple leathers, and carries at least a half-dozen hidden knives on her person at all times.
Kat is nineteen years of age, somewhat taller and more filled out than Fingerdance, with chestnut brown hair and "dancing" hazel eyes. She wields several knives and blades of her own, and also carries a curved short-bow, in the style of Greywater's crannogmen, along with several different types of arrows. Perhaps a hint to her past, perhaps not.
