107 Karla

A swordswoman looking for her brother who trifled with her family.
The swordswoman on a journey searching for her brother, Karel. She wanders the continent in search of her brother’s kind face, as he is the only family she has left. While searching for her brother’s whereabouts, she would drop by various arenas, winning in succession until she came to be feared as the “Sword Princess.” In the arena she was challenged by Bartre, who she took interest in and they eventually grew to be acquaintances.

Estimated Age……………………………………20s

Born in Sacae, but was not really influenced by the various other tribes, leading to an ignorant outlook of the world. The law of inheritance meant only one would learn the secret ways of the family –and so she lost everyone in her family except Karel, who then severed ties to the world. She continues to search for him.
When she finally reunites with Karel, he tells her to draw her blade. Karla says if he wants to kill her, then to do so –and starts reminiscing on old memories. After this, the siblings finally came to an understanding.
