Aurora is an elven maid who was born and grew up in Riversar — the most peaceful and prosperous place in the world. Nevertheless, she was not content with this quiet life and wanted to be a warrior. This led her to enlist in the army of the neighboring nation of Kharun where she endured gruelling training and mockery from fellow soldiers, fought in bloody battles and never wavered in her determination.
One day, she learned that her homeland was under attack from the forces of Chaos, invited into the world by traitors among the elves. She returned home and fought the enemy valiantly, single-handedly winning battle after battle. But finally, she succumbed to a strike of a poisoned blade, was captured and mercilessly tortured. When all hope seemed to be lost, Aurora was saved by divine intervention. The goddess Temari, to whom she prayed all these years when she needed comfort, came to her aid, destroyed her enemies, healed Aurora’s wounds and turned her into a Paladin, so that Aurora could keep fighting evil and protecting the weak.
