Your character's full name: Molly 'Moll' FitzRawnwave
Reddish brown fur covers most of Moll's trim frame. Her stomach is white. She has brown eyes and is missing two teeth. Thankfully the missing ones aren't right in front. She's waiting to have enough money to replace the missing ones with gold. She wears white peasant shirt that slips down off her left shoulder and a rough brown skirt with a wide leather belt. There's often an old cutlass thrust through the belt and she always has a dagger hidden in her black leather boots.Belongings:
Moll owns an old cutlass and a dagger with the seal of the Rawnwave family on the handle. She is the heir to a fortune but she has no idea. She also has a collection of ropes, pulleys, and gears and a small working model of a trebuchet that she built herself.Job or Position:
Tavern maid, wench, maybe one day Empress of SampetraPersonality:
Moll is tough because she's gotta be. It's a hard life for a female alone on an island full of pirates and lizards. She keeps a good attitude about it though and generally has a smile on her face. She's not bitter about her station in life but she is trying to better herself. She's not an educated beast but she's street smart and she knows how to take care of herself. She also has an innate mechanical sense.History and Background Information:
Moll's father was a powerful corsair captain. Her mother was a galley slave. Captain Rawnwave got the young weaselmaid pregnant but he was already married so he did the only thing he could do. He set her up in a house on Sampetra and gave her, her freedom. He promised to take care of she and the child, however on his very next voyage his ship and all the souls aboard were lost in a storm. He and his wife had no children, so Moll is the lone heir to his large fortune. The only thing she has of his is the small jeweled dagger that she keeps hidden in her boot. She never learned to read so she has no idea that the seal on the handle is the Rawnwave family crest.Any other details:
Moll grew up far from privilege, however. Her mother was forced to sell the house and do other creative odd jobs to support she and her daughter. Once, when she was very young a sailor gave Moll a toy catapult, probably to keep her busy while he was busy with her mother. Moll thought she could make it fling the hazelnuts further so she took it apart and put it back together. She's been fascinated with mechanical things ever since. She also knows her way around ships rigging even though she's never been on a sea voyage.
Moll's mom died of a terrible fever when Moll was 13. Moll found work in a tavern that was more respectable then other things she could have fallen into.
Her teeth were knocked out by an ex-boyfriend when he was drunk and thought she was looking at someone else. She put her dagger between his ribs and she took his cutlass after he was dead.
The Rawnwaves were practically royalty. If she had been born legitimately in his household she would have been raised as a princess. As it is she awaits someone to come upon her who knows the story and can lift her to her rightful position.
