The Brewing Tempests
Kassandra was the village mystic, and laughing stock, of Vesuu. Her beliefs were seen as fanciful and her predictions never came true. However, when she was needed, she was certainly respected for that moment. A very talented healer and practicer of Thaumaturgy, she acted as the main source of first aid and wellness for the village. She took an interest in Pug when he was maybe 8 or 9 years old and she saw him starting to harm animals when he thought no one was looking. She wanted to spare him a life of soullessness and savagery, so she taught him first how to channel his energies and then to use them for good. This had a tremendous impact on him. He began looking to help others and she began teaching him the holy word which she said would give him strength when he was weak. After a few years of mentoring him, his father came to her to show gratitude. She accepted it and a little more than that. The two soon became lovers and they married. When Pug and Ambrosia were both barely 13, she began grroming them for eventual abuse that Pug would never understand was abuse and that Ambrosia would always hate and hide. Once Pug and Ambrosia left the home and Zander had joined the military as well, she and Dionys would settle in to being empty nesters until one day she came home to find her husband missing. After a few days she became distraught and was eventually kidnapped by a group with a strange accent and dress. She was taken to Alacani lands to a cult which worshipped a strange god she knew nothing of. She found her husband and they were at least jailed next to each other in adjoining cells. They forced her to heal their warriors and fighters when they came back from whatever they could. If she refused they would kill her husband. She chose life.
