Lisa deHansen

By:

A regular female Robin Hood with an appreciation for relaxation.

Appearance:

Lisa deHansen wears a red tunic with loose gray pants that hang down to her ankles. She usually goes barefoot or in leather slippers. Her hair hangs down to her shoulders and is a blondish brown streaked with paler shades. She has blue eyes . She wears her arrow quiver most of the time.

Background:

From the very beginning the deHansens saw their daughter’s penchant for un-noble like behavior. Easygoing and casual, uncaring about education or politics, Lisa would never become a well behaved noble of the Realm. So it was with trepidation that they went to their respective deathbeds, as she was their only heir. For the first few weeks, Lisa stayed as her parents had wished and ran the estate (Not very well, mind you) but all the time she was aware of the suffering of the poorer people of the Realm. The king’s taxes made paupers of them, while the wealthy profited from trade. And so Lisa passed control of the castle to her faithful retainer, Olbzan, and went into the forest to learn the arts of the ranger. Now, like a female Robin Hood, she robs from the rich and gives to the poor of her former lands, and her lord the Duke Olbzan pretends to honor the King’s orders for her capture. She is extremely easy going and casual, often to the point of appearing half-asleep when she is bored (Which is often).

Roleplaying Notes:

She is kind of like a hippie or a rastafarian: Easygoing, carefree, casual. Even when she appears half-asleep, she could fire an arrow into the eye of a lizard from five-hundred feet away. If the players look rich and carry a lot of expensive stuff or gold, she may rob them (Service with a smile, of course)and then they may encounter her later giving some of their riches to poor folk.

Maybe the king has gotten fed up with Olbzan's continued failure to capture her, and has hired someone (like the PCs) to get the job done. Also, do the people know that the Former Lady and the Bandit are the same person? People might think that Lady DeHansen simply went missing, or maybe died. They might even think that Olbzan had something to do with her disappearance! This of course could lead to some well meaning, but ill-informed, people hiring the PCs to find the Lady and/or "bring Olbzan to justice." Even funnier would be if people thought that the Bandit and Olbzan were in cahoots to get rid of the Lady (literally true, but missing the point entirely.)

I'd like to see a lot more about this one. Who taught her to be such a good archer? :)

I suspect that a female Robin Hood could be an amusing addition to a game, especially once the rumor mill went to work:

"Why, everyone knows that the Lady DeHansen ran off into the forest to be with that dashing bandit, the Scourge of Witherwood! I've seen her myself, giving his loot back to the villagers! I wonder how much longer old Olbzan can hide the truth?"

I found this character to be lacking depth and personality, also it was a bit on the short side. On the plus side the notion of a female Robin Hood is amusing.

Update: Rephrased it.

The air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
