Khalisha was born in the Wild Lands to the Rajandrii barbarian tribe. Her parents left her at the monastery of Kashipur, dedicated to Geyora, goddess of the Chthon. She learned martial disciplines there at the foot of the abbess, but when the abbess died, the new abbot closed the women's half of the monastery and ordered the female monks banished. Khalisha and her sisters departed rather than profane the temple grounds with blood. One of the eleven pre-generated characters for the "Daresa Aflame" campaign.(I wanted to try something a little different from the Chinese- and Japanese-inspired monks that usually appear in D&D settings; hope it worked out).
