For a merchant, she is an honest type. Unlike many, she actually likes to make a fair deal. Her thoughts is that customers are more likely to come back to her in such cases. Granted, she does know how to forge paperwork and has a bit of skill in picking a pocket or two as well.
Interestingly, she will be cautious among those of non human races such as Orcs, Goblins, Kobolds, and the like but will try to treat them honestly as well. Generally, she is a pretty likeable type and tries to be friendly to everybody around her. Unlike many, that is more or less genuine. With friends, she is quite loyal. Not against the idea of a romance but is not a major concern.
She does have a soft spot for the downtrodden as well, especially children. This is likely due to her own circumstances. Right now, her means to be able to help children is limited. Having been in their circumstances herself, she does know their common tricks as well. As a result, she knows how to avoid them actually taking advantage of her.
She is interested in adventuring. From speaking to professional adventures, she notes that they are often taken advantage of as far as prices. She knows she can fight reasonably well but also figures she can add the skills of cooking, sewing, and negotiating in behalf of the group. She knows the language and tricks that merchants often use with adventurers.

One might describe Irothe’s mother as a thief but that probably gives her far too much credit. The best that can be said is that she picked pockets to try to survive. In honesty, she was not really all that good at it. Irothe has few memories of her mother as it is, being that her mother disappeared when the girl was only nine or ten years old. Most likely her mother is dead, whether accidental or murdered, but there is an outside chance that the women simply decided to disappear. Never seemed to know what to do with a young child as it was.
For some time, Irothe survived on the streets of Llorn on her own. She had managed to pick up the ability to pick pockets from her mother as well as being quite agile. She could climb into windows and filch some food or something she might manage to sell. With her native grace, it is possible she might have managed to survive on her own. It is even possible that the thieves guilt might have shown an interest in her.
There was a merchant’s wife however that tried to help the poor and wretched children of the city, which there are plenty. She did help her husband with his shop as well but her main passion was the poor children. It might be that she never had any children of her own so she in effect adopts the children of the streets. In addition to hand outs, the merchant’s wife will sometimes see if she can find some kind of work for the children.
It is hard to say why but the merchant’s wife took to Irothe. The girl had visited a number of times for hand outs and there was something different about the young girl to most of the street urchins. By this time, the girl had been on her own surviving on the streets for a couple of years but the girl was different than most of the other urchins on the street. Very possibly, the woman saw Irothe as the daughter she never had.
The woman convinced her merchant husband that they take in the girl. She was a pretty bright child and it was decided that they would teach her the profession of merchant. Any city is dangerous though and it was decided that she would be taught how to defend herself as well. She likes the staff because when not used as a weapon, it is a perfectly normal walking stick.
She talked to a number of adventurers going through the city, some not much older than she is. She decided that she might be interested in adventuring just a bit herself.
