Irina, a wild mertele (that's her race) warrior. There are three divisions of mertele: Town, wild, and feral mertele. Town mertele live in towns, wild mertele live in tribes, and feral mertele live like wild beasts. Irina is a character from a webcomic I'd like to make someday, called Marka-Mertele, about a crossbreed girl whos is part marka and part mertele, and is the chosen one of the Allmother, a goddess. Irina is the close companion of the main character. Irina refuses to speak about her past, but she must be important because she has stripes, a sign of status among wild mertele.
