Hi my name is Miranda, and I am a Kender!  

I grew up in a family with many siblings.  We were always moving around,
looking for friendship and new experiences in life.  We got by, by trading
with those we met along the way.  I had a wonderful childhood!  

One day, I saw something shiny in the distance!  I yelled to my family
members, but they were busy negotiating a trade with someone they had met so
I decided to investigate the object myself, as it didn't look far away.  I
started running to the top of the hill only to realize that the shiny was on
top of the NEXT hill.  I can do that and make it back before anybody misses
me, I thought, so I ran down the slop as fast as I could, screaming happily
as I imagined how happy my family would be with my new discovery!  The run
up the next hill was a bit more troublesome but I made it...  Only to
discover that I was still one hill away.  

Not one to be put off, I followed that shiny object all the way to
Palanthas!  I could still see that shiny object just over the next hill, but
something better and much more shiny caught my eye, Alumynie!  He is just
the bestest kender I have ever met!  I soon decided that I didn't want that
shiny thing in the sky as much as I wanted to stay with him.  

So, I have settled here for awhile and am excited about my new family and
friends.

Miranda was fetching water from the stream when she noticed the kender
with the wild topknot.  He was chasing a lizard with a bunch of other boy
kender and giggled louder than any of the others when they finally caught
it!  "Silly boys!" , She thought to herself with a smile as she headed back
to the camp.  All of a sudden he was beside her, trying to show her the
lizard.  "Here, hold this so I can see better", she grinned as she handed
him her buckets.  She marvelled that lizard all the way back to the camp,
reminding him often not to slosh the buckets.  

The two were together constantly, after that.  He taught her how to fish and
camp, how to build a campfire perfectly.  She taught him how to braid his
topknot and how to cook (little did she know he already knew how!)  .  They
became the bestest of friends!  

One day, as the two were exploring a forest it began to rain.  At first it
was just a drizzle but soon it began to pour hard!  Brim took her by the
hand and ran to a cozy cave with an old campfire in the middle.  Brim began
to rebuild the fire in the pit as Miranda sorted their pouches (making sure
their treasures were safe and dry).  Glancing up, Miranda saw Brim carefully
pick up a large ugly bug, that had been made it's home in the old wood, and
set him safely outside the cave under a large leaf.  

The look in Brim's eye and the expression on his face, as he took care of
the bug, melted Miranda's heart.  She knew right then that she loved this
kender madly and would do anything for him.  

Soon they were in the chapel.  He asked.  She said yes.  They were married! 

They traveled the lands together, exploring and getting into mischief, as
kender always do.  Content in knowing that the other was always close by. 
Their love deepening with each passing season.  They never thought much
about the future, but they knew that it was shiny!  

Time went on and soon the two were four.  The look in Brim's eyes as he held
his sons, Brimmer and Tousletop, for the first time reminded Miranda why she
fell so deeply in love with him.  

The days are now rather hectic trying to keep up with the boys (all three of
them!)  .  Miranda spends a great deal of time getting them out of trouble
(often gotten into with Dad!)  .  Brim is busy teaching them how to build
fires, how to fish, and how to camp.  Miranda tries to keep their attention
long enough to teach them how to cook and how to braid Brim's topknot
(haha).
