The road not taken
Dunia the Fifth
A Svodun native, born into a family with an abusive father and four brothers, Dunia and her mother attempted to escape one night, but before they could flee into the forest, the mother was struck down by an arrow from her father’s bow. Dunia continued to run on her own, and eventually she made her way deep into the forest where she met the Sisters of the Storm.
For years she lived with the sisters and learned of their lifestyle, eventually choosing to join as a full member, undergoing their initiation and in the process awakening an animal spirit within her. She embraced this spirit and eventually began to master the druid arts, and after ten years in the sisterhood she was fully recognized as a druid at the age of twenty.
As a leader she is kind to her followers, but has little tolerance for stupidity and even less for impulsive people who fail to think before they act. Her followers respect her despite being seen as inexperienced and young by some of her peers.
She is of the school of thought that believes it is important to push their ideals further into the open, these more radical views have caused her trouble in the past. Her relationship with Jules looks different from every side. Jules confrontations with her have pushed him to the brink of obsession, that he now struggles to become more powerful in hopes of winning her over. Her followers see it as a joke that eventually Dunia will put a stop to, while Dunia herself is furious that Jules, the embodiment of everything she hates in men, would continue with this goal, despite her repeated warnings against it.
