Daere Cadogan


Daere (DAYE-reh) Cadogan is a tall, wiry young human woman with auburn hair and piercing grey eyes.  She keeps her straight, fine hair cut relatively short, although it is frequently in need of trimming.  A woodsman’s daughter born and raised, she is far more comfortable in hunting leathers than skirts; she is more striking than pretty, although she cleans up well enough when she can be bothered.  Her father’s longbow is her prized possession; she rarely lets it out of arm’s reach, much less out of her sight. 


Background and Personality

Daere was born and raised in the shadow of Llyr’s northern forests, the eldest of three children.  Her two younger brothers, twins named Maelwys and Meurig, are more than five years her junior.  Daere was always a precocious child, much more likely to wander off into the woods following a butterfly than to pay attention to her chores.  She became adept at vanishing from under her mother’s eyes at an early age, much to her mother’s irritation and her father’s amusement; her father understood her restless nature all too well (since he’s the one she inherited it from) and never had the heart to punish her for it. 

When the elves came, Daere’s talent for disappearing saved her life.  She managed to hide from the first wave of elven scouts, and trailed a few of them back to the outskirts of her village – just in time to watch them murder her parents.  The scouts took the twins alive, for whatever nefarious purposes, but did not succeed in taking them very far before Daere fed them a taste of their own medicine.  Although she managed to free her brothers, and fled with them into the interior of Llyr, she has not forgiven herself for failing to act quickly enough to save her parents.  With her brothers safely out of harm’s way, she has turned to fighting the elves to support both herself and them – and to satisfy her need for vengeance.
