Background: Haiku comes from Yzlon, an island between Greenland and Braethon. She is a member of Hraapsklani, or the Raven Clan. Her uncle, who had adopted her after the death of his brother was wounded in a monsoon. The monsoon also ruined the wedding of her cousin. The Gothi, or priest of the larger clan that absorbed hers as a result of the wedding began to make unwanted advances towards Haiku's adoptive mother. Haiku could not bear this and attacked him. She ran when faced by superior numbers, fleeing to seek advice from her Kabekki grandmother.
Her randmother told her that the Gothi's clan, the Saevindklani were very powerful and she would doubtless have a deathmark on her. She advised Haiku to go into self-imposed exile, seeking in Merikia alliances that might strengthen her clan. To accompany her, her grandmother gave her Hugin, a beast raven. Together the two set out in a small boat to cross the open ocean.
They were pulled into the mysterious whirlpool of Nemo's Court, where they met Tira, Hank and Mahler. Together with an otter named Tip, they escaped and were brought to Tallon. Awed by the majesty of the Jewel of Merikia, she seeks some measure of power or experience which will allow her to one day return
Personality: Haiku is a warrior. She never forgets an insult and never betrays a friend. She takes her word seriously and is disappointed when others fail to live up to her code of behavior. At the same time, she is quick to fight.
Quote: "Not speak your language well.
Powers/Tactics: Haiku was trained by her mother in the Kabekki art, a very flamboyant and acrobatic style that relies heavily on movement. She prefers fighting on open ground rather than in an enclosed room. She can use this art with sword or open hand. She prefers to use a bastard sword with both hands.
Appearance: Haiku is dark skinned with bleached blonde hair. This combination is rare even among the Yzlonders. She is trim and athletc, preferring to wear little in the way of clothing or armor. She continues to dress in Barbarian fashion as it enhances her employability as a guard.
