Kynyn escaped Llael during the Khadoran invasion of 604 at the age of twelve. She and her family made their way south to Corvis where they joined a swelling underclass of refugees, criminals and the discarded. Her father, formerly an alchemist, ended up working for criminal cartels and organisations purifying and producing narcotics and healing salves, poultices and tinctures for injured criminal enforcers. This way he could earn enough money to at least keep his wife and daughter safe. By 606 he had been arrested and currently languishes in a Cygnaran prison. Her mother – a prideful woman – was reduced to begging and the stress of it caused her to lose her mind. This left Kynyn alone by 607, bitter towards Corvis’ divided society and angry at Khador. She found a home in the Llaelese Resistance.
The group Kynyn is associated with is known as ‘The Numbers’. This small revolutionary splinter group is devoted to retaking Llael but not as it was. The Khadorans have swept aside or made collaborators of the old Llaelese nobility and The Numbers see an opportunity to take back Llael without the parasitic rule of any nobility. Nonetheless they ally with members of the Royal High Guard and the resistance amongst the nobility though they see them as enemies (albeit useful ones). There are rumours that The Numbers do not genuinely smuggle out some of the Llaelese nobles they claim to be helping out of Llael but rather rob them – or have robbed them – and dispose of them. Using the wealth to finance their revolution.
The Numbers are based in Corvis’ undercity, protected from interloping Khadoran spies and assassins by a combination of the Cygnaran military, their hidden position and the criminal and refugee underworld.
Kynyn is short but heavily muscled without an ounce of spare fat. Her clothes are too big for her and she adorns herself with pretty things that she finds in the gutter, spelunking in the undercity or stealing from the rich. Every time she is seen she has something new.
Meta Info: Kynyn is intended to level at the same rate as the players to provide them with a developing and growing contact amongst the Llaelese Resistance. She acts as a go-between and courier for The Numbers hiring mercenaries, carrying payments and transporting messages on their behalf.
