The Story So FarEdit

Lily Chen had an unusual childhood, to put it mildly. She was born in mainland China, and on the next day, a group of monks arrived at her home, asking if any children had been born there the night before. The monks were seeking a child of prophecy, and although they were surprised to find that she was a girl, they wished to take and train her at their monastery. Her parents, both poor and devout, agreed, after making sure she would be well cared for.

The monks began her on a rigorous training program nearly as soon as she could walk, teaching her every martial arts technique they could, going so far as to invite instructors from other countries to teach her. She knew from a young age that she was fated to perform an incredibly dangerous task when the time came, so she pursued her studies with a will. Lily learned not only a myriad of deadly unarmed combat techniques, but also how to link her mind to her body on a fundamental level, each supporting the other.

Finally, last month, it happened. One of the monks awoke from his meditations screaming, "The Great Eye is opening! The final days are upon us!" before falling dead.

Now, Lily stands inside a magic shop in Arkham, hoping to find someone or something that will aid her in fulfilling her destiny.[1]

As an infant, Lily Chen was given a great and terrible gift: a destiny. An obscure sect of monks in her home country believed she was born to one day face a great evil. She has trained her whole life in preparation for this fate. Her movements are swift and often deadly. Her mind is filled with the wisdom of those who came before her. Through she speaks rarely, her actions prove that she is a stalwart defender against the unimaginable terrors that lurk on the fringes of reality. Now she searches for unique challenges to test her skills, an she awaits the day her role will be fulfilled.[2]
