Independent, decisive, and impatient with the ignorant. As one of only a handful of survivors from Testament’s Chaos Engine, Maerlyn has carried a wealth of emotional baggage. She was one of the founders of the Drao surface colony Dusk. She left Dusk with her lover Moon Duskbane. The two eventually joined the underground union known as The Current.
Mae was born a slave to a powerful Illithid underboss, Gygax. She served as his personal bodyguard, and enforcer. She was forced to watch over him even as he slept. He warped her mind to make her think she never needed rest until she would collapse from exhaustion. She was a highly skilled and trained fighter, to the point that her movements were almost instinctual.
During a raid by Duergar, Gygax was stricken unconscious and she was temporarily freed from the mind control. As she turned to flee, she picked up his sword and escaped. He awoke and discovered that she escaped along with his most precious possession.
As she wandered blindly through the Underdark, she eventually stumbled across others of the Drao. She was then captured by the Drao and given to the demons, upon which time she was sent to the Chaos Engine for experimentation.
One of the side effects of the experimentation was the complete loss of her memory. With the loss of her memory, she also gained random visions of the future. As she was about to be sacrificed, she was saved by the true Gods and set free after helping them defeat Testament.
She went on to meet Moon Duskbane and fell in love. After years of seclusion, they joined The Current and are on the road to adventure…
