While it is common knowledge that most Genasi come from the Alahi Desert or the Forbidden Mountains, Gaia belongs to a lesser-known tribe of warrior women from the Wild Lands—the Iquitos. Legend has it that the Iquitos were a failed experiment of the Lady Demond. She was attempting to create a loyal band of female companions to protect, serve, and worship her. She designed them to be warrior women, combining elite military prowess with a deep knowledge of the arcane. They were to be a race of swordmages, one that would worship Lady Demond completely. The urge to serve her would surpass all others; they would not be distracted by the evil ways of men; they would love the Lady Demond completely. But the she forgot one thing – you cannot force an intelligent being to love and worship another.
Upon their creation, the Iquitos rebelled. They hated the Lady Demond for trying to force their affection and hated her even more for making them hate men. (Hate is an easy seed to sow, so naturally the hatred of men stuck, while they were able to rebel against the forced affection.) So now we have an elite tribe of warrior women who can open a huge can of magical whoopass and can’t help but hate men.
Essentially, Gaia’s tribe expects her to be good with magic, but alas she sucketh.
I would much rather slash and hack and kick butt without waggling my fingers and chanting. So I’m a bit of an outcast in my settlement when I’m forced to travel to the training village of Citlali. After getting in the way of a mages sorority (Mu Kau Mu) I am eventually expelled from the village. Technically the mages started it… they performed several not-very-nice spells of me while I was sleeping. Ah, but if I had been awake. Either way, I got my revenge. Unfortunately I was expelled from the village … And, quite frankly, I’m just no good with magic, I didn’t want to be in that stupid training village anyways. What’s the point of magic when I have a sword?
So I move on to explore the world, honing my skills….
Through my travels, I have left behind many irate men across the continent. I’ve bested them in combat, humiliated them in front of their friends, wives, girlfriends, and/or children. They are bugs beneath my boots… nasty little gooey bugs, uck. So anyways these sniveling little excuses for living beings have formed a self-help group called the Humiliated Alliance of Gaia Survivors or H.A.G.S. Well, the ones that live join this group, or so I’ve heard. While intimidated by my presence, they seem to find strength in numbers.
