Centuries ago, the Drow began kidnapping humans and taking them back to the Shadowfell. Their purpose remains unknown—perhaps to build better soldiers, perhaps simply to see how long humans could live in the costant despair that is the Shadowfell. Whatever their reasoning, eventually they lost interest, leaving the human clans to wander the Shadowfell in search of a purpose.
Non-native creatures to the Shadowfell find themselves sapped of the will to live, so many of their numbers were lost to the void. To fight against losing their very existance, they’ve evolved into a culture of extremes. They force themselves to push the boundaries of what’s possible, and live for extreme physical, mental and emotional experiences. These people eventually became the Shadar-Kai. Over the centuries the Shadar-Kai have adapted and changed the Drow beliefs and traditions into their own. For instance, instead of worshipping the evil goddess of the Drow, they have shifted the religion to be focused on a neutral goddess of death that they call the Raven Queen. The fear of fading into nothing is still present in all Shadar-Kai, so they seek out glory in order to “force” the universe to recognize their existance. There are legends amongst them that say that if a warrior is proved worthy enough, the Raven Queen will take them as a consort and they will live forever in glory. While it’s been too long for them to remember the Drow, there are legends of dark skinned, fair hair’d beings that they revere as god-like figures. It is said that at some point the Shadar-Kai disappointed the Drow, so they live for the day when they can prove themselves to them again.
Tabitha has lived in the Shadowfell all her life, and like all young Shadar-Kai, began wandering off into its darkness in search of personal glory at a very young age. She favors the weapon of the spiked chain, as she believes that the pain it gives her weilding it brings her closer to her enemies.
Likes to talk big and brag about exploits. Open to any/all new experiences, and full of bravado. Somewhat reckless, especially in battle. Likes to throw herself into the middle of fights for the glory. At the same time, hates the arrogant and those that try to avoid fate/destiny.
Obsessed with immortality; either granted by her goddess or the immortality of being remembered for all time in history.
While generally pretty positive, she has no compassion for those dying—believes a lingering death is an affront to her goddess—better to die quickly, or better yet, a glorious death in battle. Death is inevitable, save for those blessed by the Raven Queen, but undeath is an abomination.
Motto: “Today is an excellent day to die!”
MANNERISMS AND APPEARANCE
Her shadow seems to flicker and move on its own in the moments before battle (or when she’s really excited).
Her skin is cool and somewhat clammy to the touch.
Inky black eyes, so she has to wear sunglasses/goggles during the day to avoid headaches from the light (darkvision from birthplace, but -10 to peception when in the sunlight without sunglasses, and a -2 to attack).
Has loads of tattoos won from bouts of honor, creatures killed, or religious devotion. In particular, she has a large tribal raven across her chest to symbolize being blessed by the raven queen. She also has a large tattoo around her middriff which she claims she received for surviving an encounter with a mindflayer, but no one really knows if this is true. She has a large scar around her neck from where it looks like someone hung her, and similar scars around her wrists. While she loves to brag about the various kill count scars on her arms/legs, she keeps silent about those scars.
Her hair is completely shaved on the right side, and cropped quite short on the left, save for a small braid that runs along her ear. On top her hair spikes up like a mohawk in all directions. Her hair’s platinum blong with pinkish highlights on the tips.
