Nion is the daughter of a dryad and a lumberjack. Convoluted? Yes. Impossible? I don't think so. Her fay heritage gave her the touch of magic (thus being a sorceress). And then she started adventuring with a group of fellas that lived in her hometown. A drunken martial artist, a renegade elf and two masterless clerics comprised her adventuring party. Many adventures later, a death in her character record and waaaaay too many attempts at impressing people with her good old "I am a very powerful magician", she seems more mature than at first (at least a little more). And she is actually starting to become trully powerful by now (she is currently a 9th level Sorcerer, after all). BTW, even while she is (by the rules) unable to specialize in any school of magic, she seems to have aquired a liking for Necromancy spells and magical items. This PC is really fun and challenging to Master. She has given me more than one headache, yet I can always count on her to spice up any adventure I prepare for my players.
