Name: Valeria Windborn
Nickname: Val, Jack(By The Pact members)
Height: 6 feet and 2 inches
Affiliation: Lawful Neutral
"An healthy body and healthy mind are but two ingredients for an healthy life."Val has a very fit body which she built over the years to allow her to move swiftly during battle. Val's 'slightly' above the average height for a woman, is mostly caused by her very long legs that are by themselves around half of Val's entire height. Her lower and upper body were developed in an away that allowed her to move around unhindered, as she trained in a way as to prevent excessive muscle to develop, and by doing so achieved a balance between agility and strength. Val has an extremely long braided greenish blonde hair, which as grown down to her ankle, fair skin and bright green eyes. Although, while a regular woman of her age would probably take a special care with her hygiene, Val is not as thoughtful about it, even tho taking a shower is usual for her after practicing her swordsmanship, which causes her to always be covered in a 'healthy layer' of dirt and/or mud, and she has no interests in perfumes or any other cosmetic items.
Clothing is not really an important item in her daily life, seriously. Val keeps her outfit line up to a minimum, and by minimum it means that she only wears an outfit that she is comfortable in, which is usually the same one she used the entire year. That attire usually consists of a small green one piece that she owns, tight high socks with and a cloak, all of which have green leaf like details. Her cloak has two colors, black on the outside, and sky blue on the inside, and is one that she as used for far too long, causing it to be tattered to shreds, giving it an look as if it is made of feathers. The cloak as shoulder pads that double up as armor, while the hood has several leaf like details that surround the head at ear level, and a green pattern at the top of the head. The green short one piece is open in front, showing off Val's abdominal area, but perfectly concealing the most private areas with leaf like patterns on the chest and on the bottom. The socks are black and have open areas on her toes and heels, while having green patterns on the thigh area. Additionally, Val does not use foot wear, always preferring to have her mostly naked feet in contact with the floor.
"Life is a mystery with multiple solutions.A serious but caring woman, Val is most of the time on high alert, using all of her senses to scout the surroundings. This is even more true when she encounters herself in crowded spaces. It is nearly impossible to see Val express any kind of emotion when on the presence of anyone besides known friends. Even during battle she remains calm and in control of her emotions. It is even rarer even for others to see her express anger or hate in anyway or form.
And everyone should find theirs."
When around other people, Val acts exactly like a gentlewoman. She is very respectful, although serious, with strangers, and prefers to avoid crowded places and be around friends, even if she doesn't speak much. Val always prefers skill over strength in numbers.
When alone with small children, Val acts more like a mother or a sister than one would think a warrior like her would, even she cannot say no to children sometimes, either its because they give her the old puppy eye technique, or call her big sister, but even she can simply put her foot down like a older sister would. Either way, regardless of her reactions, children usually seem to enjoy her company, like Val also seems to only truly smile when around children, even if only for a few moments.
During combat, Val is very focused, and in control of her emotions, always trying to plan one step ahead of her foe, and finding a way to use her magic to overpower and condition her foes. Although even tho she does not show her emotions during battle, it does not mean she does not feel them, as it is very common to see her charge, head on, onto an enemy with a wicked smile on her face.

- Valeria, as far as she can remember, has always been part of the orphanage belonging to the White Mantle of The Pact. She was told that she was brought there not my her parents, but by members of the Shining Blade which as always led her to believe her parents died in a war somewhere. Still her childhood was a normal one, she had friends, teachers and even tho the rules of the orphanage were strict, she never had problems of great importance. They were happy days, however, Val understood that, that happiness was created by the goodwill of those around her, and she would eventually pay it back.
When she grew old enough, she was given the chance to either leave and live her own life, or join the combat training school of the Vigil and eventually join one of the orders. Needless to say, having the chance of becoming part of The Pact, the ones that saved her and raised her, was without the shadow of a doubt what she wanted.
Training was harsh, and she wouldn't have it any other way regardless. At this point Val was still young and full of eagerness to leave her mark on the world. Problem was, even tho she wanted to be good, her abilities were average at best. She would still be able to be part of The Pact, but by becoming a nameless foot soldier, her wish to leave a mark on the world would never come to fruition.
But that was until, due to a random chance, she met with the leader of the Vigil. On that day the Vigil Leader Almorra was inspecting the grounds disguised as a simple instructor, when she came around Val. Val on that day was training on her own, trying to increase her strength if only by a little. Seeing this, at the time Almorra decided to give the youth a few pointers, after all she was disguised as an instructor. A few days later, Almorra decided to check on Val, only to find her practicing on the same place once again. Difference now was that she had improved considerably. Maybe Almorra thought that Val had potential, maybe she thought it was fun, but what mattered to Val at that point was that Almorra decided to train her personally for a while.
Val had no illusions however, she had no talent, but she worked hard, she sacrificed her self as much as she could to train every moment she could. She turned somewhat numb emotionally by the time the training ended,
but the results where there to anyone that had eyes. Even if not the best in any of the areas that the training course covered, Val was clearly on the top 5 of every single one, earning her the unusual nickname Jack, since she was a jack of all trades.
After she concluded her training, Val was immediately approached by Almorra. Imagine the surprise of Val when Almorra introduced herself again, this time not as an instructor, but as the leader of the Vigil. It was no surprise to anyone that was aware of their relationship when Val was selected to join the Vigil as an official member. The reason Almorra trained Val personally became evident soon after. Val was tasked of journeying to Fiora. The war with Bosco had been an event of great consequences, and the Vigil wanted someone to be around. Of course Val did not refuse, although it pained her to leave her home behind.
