Evelynn is petite, standing barely 5’ in height, with a well-proportioned feminine build. She has brown eyes, fair, freckled skin and an unruly mass of curly dark brown hair that falls to her shoulders. She dresses mainly in black, white, and grey and is never without her raven-headed staff.Background:
Evelynn has blocked out her childhood memories prior to the age of seven, when the house fire in Brindol killed her parents. Her first real memory is actually that of being pulled from the burning wreckage of her home by her twin brother, Mezzo, and being left at the Church of Pelor. She has no recollection of the beatings she received at the hands of her father or the fact that Mezzo himself set the fire.
The quiet life at the Church of Pelor suited Evelynn. The clerics taught her how to read and write, a skill she later passed on to Mezzo on the select occasions when he came to visit. She also quickly picked up the basics of how to treat those afflicted with sickness and disease, and showed surprising skill with healing magics. Because of Evelynn’s talent, she was often allowed to accompany the priests on short missionary trips outside the city walls, where she helped to spread the word of Pelor and gave succor to those in need.
However, as Evelynn aged, she found herself losing interest in the Church of Pelor’s doctrines. She began attending services at other temples in Brindol with the hopes of finding a new god or goddess to dedicate herself to, but was unable to identify with any of their teachings. It wasn’t until Mezzo exposed her to the tenets of the Raven Queen and Evelynn realized she knew the cold hand of fate firsthand that she found her true calling in life.
Believing that everything is predetermined and that circumstances occur in order to guide her throughout her life, Evelynn fled Brindol with her brother after his troubles with the law. She considers herself indebted to Mezzo for showing her the “true” way in life and is reluctant to leave him for more than a few hours at a time. Evelynn does not agree with all of what Mezzo does, however, and hopes to someday guide him to a less violent path.Current Life:
Evelynn failed in curbing Mezzo’s erratic, violent ways and as a result was unable to prevent his death in the Elemental Chaos. Blaming herself for his death, she became more reclusive and now spends little time with the Storms of Fate. Having given up her quarters at their base, she resides at the Temple of the Raven Queen in Overlook under the guidance of High Priestess Savaya. Evelynn gives last rites to the dying and carries out funerals daily at the temple, as well as ministering to those in need in the poorer districts in town.
