Born of the council (Which is what the high tree elves are) it was her birth that would bring more children to populate the council and her people. But as a child, her parents died from a war against Yrchs. Her brother, Amras, became the leader of the council, and tried to continue the ways his father did. Evangeline's skills could prove any man wrong. She is swift with a bow and arrow, and holds grace with a sword. But she was made out to be a mother, not a warrior. Or so her people said.
Like the rest of her people, Evangeline is connected with nature. Their god is The Mother, life's balancing ruler. Evangeline always seemed to be more connected to her than the others, who they served a physical nature more than the spirit. Her stubborness and hate for the world (But mother) made her people distance themselves from her. Death loomed about her. Every friend she made happened to want to kill her eventually, or something took them away from her. Thus her reason for disliking so much. She also hates help... for it makes her feel weak.
But now? Now Evangelines heart seemed to calm with the touch of a Deyna, a race not too different than her own, but at the same time... they are very different.
