Like most females from her homeland, she is biased against males and does consider them inferior to females. She is smart enough to realize that her opinion is not shared by most and does not make problems because of it. In most cases, it raises its head when she is concerned about a male being unable to do his assigned task and will watch him carefully as a result. She also tends to distrust men in general and prefers to company of woman, especially educated women over men. This also finds its way into her sexual preferences. She has had relationships with males in the past but they just do not interest her.
Surprisingly, She has no particular interest in returning to Lemaria. To her, the island seems limited and she loves exploring both on land and at sea. She enjoys always discovering something new. Even though she is biased against males, she is loyal to companions and will fight by their side, male or female. She also does not really like the way the leaders in Lemaria trap ships and take advantage of them. She considers it to be piracy. Still her loyalty to her home prevents her from warning others about it. Still, it a true friend was going in that direction, she would most likely warn them.

Lady Storm’s History:
Salana Liiana was born the daughter of a Bizantium Noble and skilled mariner. With his wife and infant daughter onboard, he commanded a ship of exploration. He was locking to find a new trade passage to the Western Empire. Like many ships which attempted to sail that course, his ship was lost. In this cases, they were brought onto the treacherous rocks by the light house set up to trick sailors by the leaders of Lemaria. It was not the first ship to be caught in that manner and certainly not the last. The noble and his wife were killed in the shipwreck and most of the surviving crew was enslaved.
One of the more powerful air elemental masters on the island, a woman named Conemus, decided to adopt the infant girl. The girl’s name is actually unknown, she was given the name Salana Liina by the elemental master when she was adopted. Conemus had never had any children and was by this time getting too old to have children. The elder lady elemental master had wanted a child of her own for years and so it seemed to be a perfect solution.
As the girl grew up, she was taught the path of an air elemental master. The girl was always very bright and learned extremely quickly. No one could doubt her love of learning and tied in with that was a love of exploring. She loved traveling around the island and always wondered what the rest of the world was like. Soon, she came into he powers and joined the Elemental Sisterhood and many expected her to follow after her adopted mother.
Her father’s blood seems to run in her with her er sailing skills being excellent. She loved going out with the fishing boats. One day when she was with a fishing boat, a major storm blew the ship away from the course and they became hopelessly lost. Eventually, they were able to find land. It was definitely not the Island of Lemaria. The boat had no supplies onboard and had almost been sunk multiple times. For that reason, they decided to take their chances and land.
It turned out to be the western most island of the Kingdom of Bizantium. Salana had heard enough stories to known that women were treated very differently outside of the tiny island that she lived most of her life. She cautioned the others but some of them got in trouble anyway. She had no money herself so had to find quick employment. Her skills as an air warlock and shipboard skills enabled her to find a berth on a merchant ship. There she further honed her skills and visited ports all over the coast. Included in this was the Eastern Territory, the Timero Kingdom, and even the Land of the South Winds.
At first she looked for a ship going west from Bizantium in hopes of getting back home but it was always her luck that she could never catch a vessel going in that direction. Eventually she decided that she did not have any real interest in returning to the island. After seeing far away lands, it now seemed extremely small and limited to her. Her values also made her realize that she would not be comfortable there because of the acts of piracy which the island uses to support itself. She has had enough run-ins with pirates to have developed a hatred for them.
While most her adventuring has been onboard ship, she has also joined land expeditions including one which explored some ancient ruins which are just west of the Timero Kingdoms. The group was able to find an incredible cache of treasure including a huge number of perfect condition dragon coins. With this treasure, several of her companions retired and it enable her to purchase a number of new magic items. Included in this was a specially commissioned magical sword. She also purchased a small estate on the coast of the Eastern Territory although she still spends much of her time traveling and has others manage it for her.
