This is Sarinna, a character out of my book. She's one of my favourites. She was abandoned when she was five years old and the first time you meet her is when she's about to be hanged, but she escapes.
Her amibiton is to be a Surger (a very skilled person who is trained in weapons and warfare and is the most ferocious fighter in armies). The markings are tattoos that she has done when she joins the Elven tribe of Surgers, the Artomills.
