Recall Lore (Nature)
Outside of the large walled cities, the wilderness settlements know that life is precarious. Lacking fortifications or the numbers to effectively defend them, the wildfolk stay ready to flee any overwhelming force. However, Selene’s home Zarorwood grew too comfortable, and when the darklings swarmed, few were able to escape. Her children, spouses, and other kin were killed, and Selene was left with scars both internal and external.
Uncomfortable with large crowds or inside walls, Selene prefers the freedom of the Rappeler crews and the opportunity to explore the world more widely. She wants to find the source of the darkling swarms and whether they are truly a part of nature and if so how to accommodate them, or if they are not natural, how to end them.
What’s the worst thing that can happen? Survivors already know, and come out stronger.
Other wildfolk view Survivors as both an object lesson and the person they could be or have been. Wildfolk know misfortune can arise from the smallest wrong step and are generally ready to lend aid—the next person in need might be themselves after all—but they will go to exceptional lengths to help a Survivor. Although the wilds tend to attract rugged individualists, a Survivor is one of the few people they’ll look to as a leader.
