Background

Sleeth is a formidable half-elf fighter and assassin who resides in the bustling port city of Seiga, located in Darfuria. Born from the union of a human sailor and an elven rogue, she grew up in the gritty underbelly of the city, where crime and danger were part of daily life. As a child, Sleeth quickly learned to navigate the treacherous streets, using her wits and agility to survive in a world that had little sympathy for the weak.

Her early years were marked by hardship and adversity, forcing her to adopt a pragmatic and ruthless approach to life. Sleeth's strength and dexterity set her apart, catching the attention of a notorious assassin's guild that operated in the shadows of Seiga. Trained by skilled mentors, she developed a lethal skill set and became one of the guild's most feared enforcers.

Sleeth's devotion to Surma, the Finnish deity of death and the underworld, is rooted in her belief that death is the ultimate power. She sees her role as an assassin as a divine calling, carrying out the will of Surma as she eliminates those who stand in her way. Her association with the deity gives her a sense of purpose and justifies the dark path she has chosen.
