Bio:

The farm was neither large or small but the land was fertile and the harvests bountiful. It sat on the North-Western edge of the plateau near Picalah. Fergar, her father was a good man by all accounts. Each morning, very early he rose just before sun-up and he did not stop until the sun was but a sliver on the horizon. He had livestock as well, Shiul for their meat and milk and Yol for their wool. Cassa, her mother cleaned house, cooked the food and sheared the Yol when it was time. An educated woman who thought that their only daughter, Delmorra should spend more time with her studies than with her Thuman Roman.

Delmorra had been correlated at a very young age and though it was expensive her parents had hired tutors for her to prepare her for her chosen vocation, Archaeology. Something she had an aptitude and also a great interest for. When she wasn’t studying she was either out climbing or playing with her Thuman.

She attended her first dig at the age of 15 east of Picalah just across the river. The Reslin settlement was there but a construction worker had uncovered metal fragments in the soil. All building was halted and several people, scientists and students were brought in to investigate the find. Delmorra was among them and she had already managed to distinguish herself as a first rate cataloger though skill had little to do with it.

When Delmorra turned 13 she began to ‘feel’ a power or energy around her. Sometimes she could focus it and use it when she needed it. Sometimes it came to her unbidden and without thought. She never told her parents this but when she had began receiving tutors she began finding strange books in among the subjects she was slated to learn. The books were about Numenera, a force that exists in all things and in all people and only very few people could sense it and fewer still were able to bend it to their will. Delmorra and apparently one of her tutors knew she was among them.

There were other digs and uncovered mysteries that she was called to as time moved along. One in particular dig was conducted far beneath the earth. It was a dangerous one due to the Bloodfest Ticks and the unstable tunnels. Due to this each archaeologist were assigned a Glaive to accompany them. Delmorra was assigned a Glaive that called himself Rook. During a rock-slide the two became trapped for several days deep within the cavern. Together they managed to survive as they were forced to explore deeper into the cavern for a way out. Eventually they did but not before a special bond had been formed between them and as a result they seemed to work very well together.

Delmorra became aware of artifacts and Cyphers over time. Technologies once used long ago by civilizations long past and forgotten. She took up Astronomy and Geography and continued to learn more of the Numenera. She loved to travel and discover that which time had forgotten.
