Del grew up travelling with her parents across Mistone. They never stayed in one place for too long, and they had few friends because of this. They travelled alone most of the time, however the seven families they knew never travelled too far apart. Together the families, known as the travelling eight, kept watch over each other from a distance, usually not far out of ear shot of the bird calls they knew how to mimic. Each family chose a different call and while on the move you could hear each distinguished tune being called out. The families never left much behind, rarely a foot print they didn't realize they'd left. None of them owned much as far as materials, however they all possessed a grand number of skills. Del's mother was often called a witch, though she wasn't a witch and was often chased away from towns and villages when they'd go for the few supplies they couldn't make themselves. Del's mother had been caught changing forms on two separate occasions, and people thought she was dangerous. Del's mother was a druid and usually only changed forms for hunting or protection. Del's father was a hunter, and they had several trained hunting animals they kept close by.
When Del was born she was given her name because of the things that had started happening around her birthday. That day is when the travelling eight became the travelling seven.
All the camps were set up and the fires lighted. The meals for the day were being cooked and all of the gear had been properly hidden. Most travellers wouldn't be able to find their camps while passing by, but tonight was a different night. The kettle warmed the water and the midwife gathered the cotton and silk cloths. Del was born. They all laid down to get some rest.
Sounds of pounding, and thumping on the ground filled the air, every noise followed by pulses felt in the ground. Animal noises filled the air as the travelling eight called to each other for aid. Alas it was too late, one of the families disappeared into the forest never to be seen again. They all gathered their supplies put out the fires and moved along as fast as they could. What made such quick work of the family? Was it the outcasts? A large bear? Giants? Nobody knew, all they knew was run!
Years went by.
Del is now 10. Two families have disappeared now, in the same manner. Is someone following the families? Still unable to catch the persons or beings responsible the families keep moving. They watch every shadow wondering if it will come for them next. When will the silent horror come from the shade of the trees and claim another. The travelling six continue on. Del has been learning her skills from her mother and father, and has taking a liking to bears. She does not know why, but they intrigue her immensely. Fascinated by them she often hides in the forest not far off watching them sharpen their claws, and catch fish with their paws. She watches them climb trees and run faster than they look capable. She watches them in their slumber while they hibernate the winter days away. She's also found fascination with mixing herbs and various minerals, and growing new plants. Sometimes she swears she can see the plant actually moving as it grows.
Years go by.
Del is now an adult, there aren't many of the travelling eight left, and Del has been going over the events that happened and studying the ground behind them, despite her parents warnings, every time they stop determined to figure out what has been happening. To no end.
Del decides to go off away from her family and search farther in the world for the possibility of an answer.
Del is quite muscular for a female, and stands 5'1" tall, slender and trim from constant travel. She is tan, with black hair and green eyes. She bears her families tatoos.
She is quite fond of bears, deer, snakes, and wolves. She can sometimes be found tracking and silently following them around.
She uses shadows often to hide, but not before throwing a small glowing stone that she carries with her at all times, to check them for danger first.
Del doesn't take sides easy, and is not quick to judge. She tries to find the balance of things but does so very carefully and with a great deal of observation and thinking first, never jumping to conclusions too fast.
She's quiet until you get to know her, as she's probably watching you thoroughly.
