Personality Edit

Background Edit

Durene's mother, having lost a previous husband and children, lived alone near the village of Riverfarm. She raised Durene from her sickbed until the girl was four years old, while Durene's Troll father had been killed by an adventurer soon after having gotten her mother pregnant.[3]

After the death of her mother, Durene was taken in by the village, but had to sleeps in barns, eat scraps, and endure humiliation from other kids. When she was old enough, she returned to the cottage of her mother and only interacted with the villagers when they needed her help as a strong laborer, hiding from strangers and adventurers.[3] This background led to her illiteracy and low intelligence.

Chronology Edit

After she met Laken, she did not tell him about being Half-Troll. When winter arrived, Yesel and Prost Surehand, farmers from Riverfarm, tried to convince Laken to come to the main village for safety, and told him her secret. Laken and Durene became involved within a month of Laken's arrival. Laken granted her the [Paladin] class.[3]

She stayed with him when he tamed Frostwing and later Bismarck. When Laken claimed the buried village of Riverfarm as part of his Unseen Empire; she and Gamel accompanied Laken to Invrisil. She remained in his inner circle during the reconstruction of Riverfarm. Laken chose Durene over [Lady] Rie Valerund.

After she was wounded in the battle of Lancrel after attacking Pyrite, Durene was left behind by Laken for over sixty days while he joined Tyrion Veltras army to provide trebuchets for the siege of Liscor. She is strongly against his choice to take goblin prisoners instead of killing them.
