250 AC. As the world struggles to pull itself from the chaos sowed by the Cataclysm, members of every race seek a way home. Dwarves outside their mountain homes continue to search for a way inside. Humans of all nations seek to restore order and find what "home" means. Elven travellers, long finding themselves persecuted outside their sacred homes, journey back. From this last group, a family of Qualinesti seek to return home, their newborn daughter finally well enough to travel. They had been part of an expedition to restore relations between Qualinost and Silvanost - an expedition that had failed. They travel with caravans or sell what few priceless trinkets they have to pay for protection, but going is slow. Their daughter spends her infant years on the road. As she is beginning to walk, her parents are betrayed by another family. A Khurish family of mercenaries, the al-Marads coveted the elven family's concealed wealth and killed them for it. They were unable, however, to kill the elven baby and decided to raise it as their own. But to elves, humans are short lived and by the time the elf, Xiaofei, showed the first signs of adulthood, she had been through 5 al-Marad fathers. She had brought increasingly wise council and skill and was each father's favorite. She learned Khurish mercenary life: fighting mounted when the family could afford it, they usually relied on stealth and speed while on foot. But the Khurish tribes were uniting under the leadership of a Salah-Khan. Reports were that pay and accomodations were good. More importantly, something within pushed Xiaofei to enlist. Some deep and buried spark that she hadn't felt before. She would see how true the stories of this Dragonarmy were.
