T’Orianna’s background

T'Orianna was about to get married to a noble of a powerful eL’nathian House.  The marriage was arranged by their parents in hope to strengthen power and influence.  Unfortunately T'Orianna was a very arrogant woman.  Up until now she had been undefeated by any opponent.  On the day upon meeting her future husband she boasted and bragged of her fighting skills, and declared that she could take on any male even her husban-to-be’s men.  In jest he said that she would have to fight him to reach his men.  With that she challenged him to a duel.  He did not take the challenge very seriously and they started to tussle.  By the time he realized that T'Orianna was not joking he was face down and unconscious.  When he woke up he was livid with rage and wanted to kill her for making a fool of him in front of his men, but T'Orianna was gone.  Her father spirited her away and put her on a ship in an unknown direction. 

Her parents had agreed that the less people knew the better, so they made arrangements to marry him to T'Orianna’s younger sister and to hide T'Orianna from him.  But oR’thargurys’es pride would not let the matter rest and he vowed to hunt her down and make her pay for his humiliation.
