Laurane is an interesting character. Even though a person of magic, she often thinks like a mercenary. She is very self reliant and is far more wilderness savvy than most expect from a user of magic. She also considers it very important to keep herself fit and able to defend herself. Even though a capable fighter herself, she has a good working knowledge about how to use her magic and psychic abilities. From her mother, she has a good basic knowledge of tactics although no real large scale strategic ability beyond basic common sense, which of course is better than some noble generals. When fighting, she is very calm and attempts to think things through as much a possible while in combat.
She is not a big follower of rules and would be best described as a free spirit. She has found this to be common to the few other psi-mystics which she has met. The young psi-mystic tries to respect those around her and values life. She values her own life and will fight to protect herself and will fight viciously if she needs to. She is fairly friendly but she is a bit on the shy side, especially when scared, and hard to get to know well. While a bit reserved, she is not likely to abandon a group she is working with. Even though she has a good basic grasp of tactics, she is not likely to take the role of leader of a group.

Laurane Flammewolfe's History:
Laurane Flammewolfe's mother was a mercenary warrior who worked mostly within the borders of the lower Barraduk region of the Western Empire in a variety of local conflicts. In a war between two lesser lords within the Barraduk region of the Western Empire, she was captured and held prisoner. While Laurane's mother was held prisoner, she was raped several times and conceived a child as a result. It is unlikely that Laurane's father will ever be known and could be any one of a half dozen soldiers. It could even have been the lesser lord or one of the members of his family. Laurane's appearance is much like her mother so it is very hard to tell.
After the war ended, she was released and left the general area. Laurane mother gave birth while she was traveling out of the area and the birth took place in a cave. After a short period of travel, the mother and daughter were able to settle in a moderate sized town and found employment in the town militia within the region of Vequerrel Woodlands. She did the best job she could raising her child and did not treat her daughter badly even though the child was the result of a rape. For the first several years she was very bitter but was able to get a handle on the situation eventually. When Laurane was about four, most of the town burnt down and many of the other Man at Arms serving in the militia left to look for new employment. The town was rebuild and Laurane's mother was able to become an officer in the guard in the rebuilt town. Several years passed and Laurane's mother decided that it was time for a move. There was a huge amount of unrest surfacing in the town and the town's leaders were becoming more corrupt. When Laurane was eight years old, her mother hand finally saved enough and both of them moved to the Eastern Territory near the city of Llorn. The Eastern Territory was seen as more peaceful and the government less corrupt in general. In the Eastern Territory, Laurane's mother acted in the same role as she had in the Western Empire.
Because Laurane's mother was not very well off, she did not have the money to apprentice her daughter so she taught her the skills of being a mercenary herself. Laurane actually quickly developed excellent hand to hand skills and it looked like she would become an excellent mercenary herself. The training started at the age of ten and continued until Laurane discovered her magical talents. When she was fifteen, she felt a strange urge and went wandering into the wilderness for a reason that she does not know although probably related to her magic waking. When she got there, she discovered she had magical talents. Her mother accepted that Laurane was a mage as much as a warrior but soon after her discovery of her magic talents, Laurane's mother was killed by a group that was raiding the town she was the guard.
Soon after her mother died, Laurane got wanderlust and decided to go off adventuring herself One of the first places she traveled to was the Western Empire, partially out of curiosity and partially from the fact that there are many chances to make money in the Western Empire. She encountered an assassin while guarding a traveling scholar and killed the assassin in the altercation which resulted. The assassin had a magic sword which she appropriated for herself and has carried while adventuring.
