== Background ==
  +
Erin Solstice was born on the 21st of June, 1996, coincidentally on the same day that the Summer Solstice occurred. Due to this coincidence and her family surname, her parents had said that her birth was a sign.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2020/06/10/7-28/ Chapter 7.28]</ref>
  +
  +
She lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2019/07/20/6-32/ Chapter 6.32]</ref>
  +
  +
Erin was a child prodigy at chess, reaching an ELO of 2000 as a kid. She went to many tournaments, studied and played chess late into the night.<ref name="1.27">[https://wanderinginn.com/2016/11/16/1-27/ 1.27]</ref> She won many local tournaments and also was invited to some big ones where she never won first place. She only came close once in Havana.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2-07/ Chapter 2.06]</ref> She once played a female Grandmaster, but lost because of her excitement.<ref name="1.20">[https://wanderinginn.com/2016/10/05/1-20/ Chapter 1.20]</ref>
  +
  +
She went to tournaments all around the world at a young age, casually learning local customs and languages (among them Spanish, French, Dutch and Japanese at the very least) there but doesn't speak any of them fluently aside from some words. She didn't do well in French classes.<ref name="2.37">[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/06/18/2-30/ Chapter 2.37]</ref>
  +
  +
When she was younger, she dreamed of being a astronaut. Then, when she’d been slightly older she’d wanted to be a legendary chess player, someone who could beat even a computer in chess. And then she’d wanted to be a chess commentator, someone with a huge following or even a Youtube channel.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.wordpress.com/2017/09/26/3-16/ Chapter 3.16]</ref> At some point during her youth, she had been fed up with chess<ref name="1.27" />, rebelled and and got away from the game, but as one of her latest developments back on Earth, she was fascinated with chess again and pursued a more casual chess gaming.<ref name="2.38">[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/06/21/2-31/ Chapter 2.38]</ref> She assumes she might be at 2400 if she had kept playing constantly.<ref name="1.27" /> She later didn’t enroll in college, preferring to work as a chess tutor and tournament contender to save up money before going on to study.<ref name="1.35">[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/01/08/1-35/ 1.35]</ref>
  +
  +
Erin had a close relationship with her loving parents. She once had a boyfriend,<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2019/11/12/6-56/ Chapter 6.56]</ref> but never lost her virginity.<ref name="2.21" /> It is not clear if said "boyfriend" is the same one as her online relationship with ''mysterio_Gamer12'', whom she met during online chess games. She had been certain he was a handsome guy... until she found out, during one awkward Skype conversation, that mysterio was actually a Polish girl who thought ''she'' was a guy.<ref name="s01">[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/04/17/side-story-mating-rituals/ S01 - Mating Rituals]</ref>
  +
  +
After having arrived in this new harsh world, she found an empty inn. With no place to go, she took it as her own and decided to reopen it under the name ''[[First Wandering Inn|The Wandering Inn]],'' hoping it would make it easier for her to survive. With no prior experience of handling an inn, she often met with hardships and slowly had to accustom herself to a live as an [Innkeeper].
  +
  +
== Chronology ==
  +
  +
=== '''<u>Volume 1:</u>''' ===
  +
When Erin was going around a corner in her home in Michigan intending to enter the bathroom, she suddenly found herself face to face with a [[Teriarch|Dragon]] in a cave.
  +
  +
After running from the Dragon and some [[Goblins]] who chased her, Erin found [[First Wandering Inn|an abandoned Inn]] and became an [Innkeeper]. She spent the next few days surviving monster attacks and fending off Goblins, before getting her first customers.<ref>Chapters 1.01 to 1.06</ref>
  +
  +
For a while, Erin only got the same three customers — [[Relc Grasstongue|Relc]], [[Klbkch]], and [[Pisces Jealnet|Pisces]] — the former two being Senior Guardsman from the local city of [[Liscor]], and the latter being a wandering Necromancer.<ref>Chapters 1.07 to 1.14</ref>
  +
  +
At one point, Erin killed a [[Goblin Chieftain]] that nearly raped and killed her. She then befriended and served some Goblins and [[Antinium]], teaching them chess in the process.<ref>Chapters 1.15 to 1.25</ref>
  +
  +
In [[Liscor]], the city closest to the Wandering Inn, as Erin called her inn by now, she met several people who also began to help her, prominently among them the [[Drakes]] [[Olesm]] and [[Selys]] as well as the [[Gnolls|Gnoll]] merchant [[Krshia]].<ref>Chapters 1.13, 1.19 to 1.21</ref>
  +
  +
Erin was nearly killed again when Goblins attacked her Inn, and was saved by [[Rags]] — one of her Goblin customers whom she named — and Klbkch, the latter of whom died protecting her. Because of Klbkch’s death, Erin lost the protection of Liscor’s watch, and Relc as a customer.<ref>Chapters 1.25 and 1.26</ref>
  +
  +
After Klbkch’s death, Erin met an Antinium Worker whom she helped become the individual [[Pawn]]. She played chess against him and around hundred other Workers that accompanied him in an Immortal Game, gaining the skill [Immortal Moment] as a result. At some point, Erin met the Named Adventurer, [[Gazi Pathseeker]], when she was destroying a [[Shield Spiders|Shield Spider]]’s Nest. Because of that and her [Immortal Moment] Skill, Gazi took an immediate interest in Erin.<ref>Chapters 1.27 to 1.31</ref><ref name="1.27" />
  +
  +
After finding her Inn ransacked by a [[Lyonette du Marquin|mysterious robber]], Erin searched for some bodyguards to protect her and her Inn. Unable to afford guards, Pisces, who hasn’t paid for most of his meals, then gave Erin a [[Toren|skeleton]] to be her bodyguard as a form of payment. The skeleton, who was later named Toren, became Erin’s first employee and helped her gather and serve food and drinks to Goblins and Antinium.<ref>Chapters 1.32 to 1.35</ref><ref name="1.35" />
  +
  +
After the discovery of a [[Ruins of Liscor|crypt]] a few miles away from Liscor, Adventurers began flocking to the city. Erin, who had only had a skeleton, Goblins, and Antinium, in her Inn for a while, needed to protect herself and her guests from the visiting Human Adventurers.<ref>Chapter 1.33</ref>
  +
  +
Eventually, an adventuring group called the [[Horns of Hammerad]] stopped by her Inn and became the first customers to rent a room. When Klbkch’s successor, [[Ksmvr]], maimed Pawn, Erin used [Immortal Moment] to sing and make her songs come to life.<ref>Chapters 1.36 to 1.40</ref>
  +
  +
The leader of the Silver Ranked team, the [[Minotaurs|Minotaur]] named [[Calruz]], tought Erin and Toren how to fight after seeing Erin fail to protect Pawn. Erin learned [Power Strike] in a day, and was told that she is talented.<ref>Chapter 1.41</ref>
  +
  +
When the expedition by the Horns and several other Silver Ranked teams failed and unleashed [[Skinner]] and thousands of Undead, Erin’s Inn was attacked by the Undead. The Antinium Chess Club, led by [[Knight (Antinium)|Knight]], rushed to Erin’s Inn to help protect her.<ref>Chapters 1.00 H to 1.42</ref>
  +
  +
Erin, Toren, and the individuals managed to fend off the Undead for a while, but were eventually overwhelmed when Skinner himself comes. Erin, who fell under the effects of Skinner’s [Terror] spell, was unable to fight, and Knight died.
  +
  +
After Knight’s death Erin used [Immortal Moment] and played chess against herself for an eternity. She played for what felt like years, until living became fear, and fear became living. When Erin stopped playing, she still felt fear from Skinner’s spell, but she was used to the fear and thus able to fight back.
  +
  +
Using up all of her acid jars, Erin was eventually forced out of her Inn in a desperate charge against Skinner. Erin, Toren, and the remaining Individuals, managed to badly wound Skinner, forcing it to shed its protective shell of dead skin. However, this gave Skinner the speed and mobility it didn’t have before, and almost killed Erin.
  +
  +
Erin was saved by Klbkch, who was revived by the [[Rite of Anastases]] and saved Erin just in time, forcing Skinner to realize it was outmatched and retreat. Rags and her tribe chased the monster down and finished it off, causing all the Undead to leave, ending the attack on Liscor.
  +
  +
The next day, Erin wept for the dead.<ref>Chapters 1.43 to 1.45</ref>
  +
  +
=== <u>'''Volume 2:'''</u> ===
  +
Afterwards, Erin met [[Ryoka]], a fellow [[Earthworlders|Earthworlder]], as Ryoka stopped by in her inn. The two girls befriended each other,<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/03/15/2-02/ Chapter 2.01]</ref> and rushed to the [[Ruins of Liscor|crypt ruin]] where the [[Horns of Hammerad]] had failed, because they wanted to rescue [[Ceria Springwalker|Ceria]], who was together with [[Olesm]] the only remaining survivors of the expedition.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/03/18/2-03/ Chapters 2.02] and [https://wanderinginn.com/2017/03/22/2-04/ 2.03]</ref>
  +
  +
Exiting the ruins, Erin and Ryoka were greeted by [[Gazi]] who tried to kidnap and bring them to [[Flos]], her [King]. Despite help from many high-leveled natives of [[Liscor]], they could barely prevent Gazi from succeeding; Erin poked out Gazi's main eye and caused her to flee the scene.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/03/25/2-05/ Chapters 2.04] and [https://wanderinginn.com/2017/03/28/2-06/ 2.05]</ref>
  +
  +
After a long brainstorming session, Ryoka left Erin to take care of her own things,<ref name="2.07">[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/04/04/2-08/ Chapter 2.07]</ref> while Erin had to face the arriving winter. Her skeleton [[Toren]] blew up the [[First Wandering Inn|old inn]], and Erin's friends helped her reconstruct [[The Wandering Inn|a new inn]] much closer to Liscor.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/04/13/2-11/ Chapter 2.11]</ref> Erin also had her first successes as a salesperson for hamburgers short after.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/04/15/2-13/ Chapter 2.13]</ref> It then turned out that the Liscorians quickly copied Erin's recipe, and in an attempt to top them again, she started an iPhone concert on a whim - something that has not been repeated afterwards. At that time, Erin also received a magical chessboard<ref name="2.17">[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/04/22/2-16/ Chapter 2.17]</ref> and assembled a banquet for [[Frost Faeries]] who gifted her the [[Faerie Flowers]].<ref name="2.21">[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/05/03/2-19/ Chapter 2.21]</ref>
  +
  +
Erin gained her first living employee soon afterwards: [[Lyonette du Marquin|Lyonette]], who was reluctant to became a [Barmaid] in her inn.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/05/14/2-21/ Chapter 2.25]</ref> Her employment also created a rift between Erin and all [[Gnolls]] in Liscor,<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/05/17/2-22/ Chapter 2.26]</ref> as Lyonette had been condemned to death in exile by the Liscorian authorities. However, Erin could steadily attract more business to her inn, most prominently the adventurer [[Halrac Everam|Halrac]]<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/05/31/2-26/ Chapter 2.31]</ref>. She also saw the revival of the [[Horns of Hammerad]] in that time.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/06/07/2-27/ Chapter 2.33]</ref>
  +
  +
While Ryoka was away on her delivery from [[Teriarch]], Erin was invited by Lady [[Magnolia Reinhart]] to her mansion in [[Invrisil]]<ref name="2.37" />, and returned from there shortly before Ryoka came back with [[Mrsha]].<ref name="2.38" />
  +
  +
After Erin overworked Toren, he stranded her nearby [[Celum]]. Ryoka found Erin in Celum, and there the two heard the news of [[Esthelm|Esthelm's]] fall.
  +
  +
=== <u>'''Volume 3:'''</u> ===
  +
Erin meets the Horns of Hammerad in Celum, and is given a magical door by them and then escorted back to Liscor. On her way back to Liscor, Erin and the Horns come across the partly rebuilt city of Esthelm, struggling to survive after the goblin lord attack. One day after arriving back at her inn, she kick start a relief mission to provide food, material, and adventures to help protect the city from further goblin attacks.
  +
  +
Back in Liscor, Erin throws a Christmas party that ends with her crying over Earth and all those she missed. The next day, she has [[Tamaroth|three visitors]] who give her an Ancient Coin.<ref name=":0" />
  +
  +
=== <u>'''Volume 4:'''</u> ===
  +
When [[Regrika Blackpaw]] kills Brunkr, Erin saw through her and Ikriss' disguise and assembled [[Griffon Hunt]], the [[Halfseekers]], [[Zel Shivertail]], and Wall Lord [[Ilvriss Gemscale|Ilvriss]] to confront them. In the ensuing battle, [[Ulrien Sparson|Ulrien]] is killed while Ijvani was badly damaged.
  +
  +
After Ryoka leaves Liscor, Erin houses the [[Redfang Elite Warriors|Redfang 5]] in her Inn, which causes Zel to leave, despite him defending her decision to protect them. When Zel Shivertail died in the battle against the [[Reiss|Goblin Lord]], Erin can be seen crying in her Inn.
  +
  +
=== <u>'''Volume 5:'''</u> ===
  +
At the request of Wall Lord Ilvriss, Erin connects her magical door to the Walled City of [[Pallass]], the City of Inventions. When the [[Face-Eater Moths]] attacked Liscor, Erin helps fight them off while using the magical door to get aid from Celum and Pallass.
  +
  +
During the [[Raskghar]] arc, the door played a vital role in bringing about Gold-Ranked Adventurers from Pallass, and defeating the Raskghar. With the defeat of the Raskghar, the [[Cave Goblins]] under their servitude were freed and put under the protection of Erin and the five Redfang Goblins.
  +
  +
When the [[Flooded Waters Tribe]] and [[Redfang Tribe]] arrive in Liscor, Erin fed many of them over several days. And finally, when the [[Reiss|Goblin Lord]] was driven to Liscor by the [[Tyrion Veltras|Humans in the North]] to take over the city, the Cave Goblins, the Flooded Waters Tribe, and the Redfang Tribe, with Erin's request, fought to defend the city of Liscor. This resulted in over 200,000 Goblins dying that day, including [[Headscratcher]] and [[Shorthilt]].
  +
  +
=== <u>'''Volume 6:'''</u> ===
  +
In the aftermath of the Goblin King's attack, Erin mourns the death of her Goblin friends, and holes up in her inn for several days. She reveals the truth about being from another world to Lyonette, Mrsha, and Numbtongue. Later, Erin goes on vacation to Pallass for a few weeks, meeting new friends such as [[Lasica Feltail|Lasica]], [[Rufelt Owelt|Rufelt]], [[Maughin]], and [[Grimalkin]]. She helps in Liscor's election by properly introducing Liscor and Pallass to each other.
  +
  +
Wistram mages come to Liscor to kidnap the Horns of Hammerad and to invite Erin to Wistram. When Erin realizes that they have abducted the Horns, she secretly organizes an attack on them. Later, [[Crelers]] emerge from the Bloodfields, coming through Erin's magical door and swarming her inn. As a result, the Wandering Inn is almost destroyed.
  +
  +
In the aftermath of the Creler attack, Toren confronts Erin when she is alone in the ruins of the inn. Their ensuing fight almost ends with Erin's death at the hands of Toren, but at the last moment, he relents and reveals that he possesses, to some degree, a conscience. Toren then tries to commit suicide to Erin's grief, though unbeknowst to her, Toren is abducted by [[Ijvani]] by [[Az'kerash]]'s orders. <ref name=":1" />
  +
  +
=== <u>'''Volume 7:'''</u> ===
  +
Broken by Toren's death, Erin goes to Pallass on vacation for two weeks while the Wandering Inn is being rebuilt. While experimenting with her new Skill, she is arrested by Pallass's Watch and briefly sent to prison, where she meets [[Saliss Oliwing|Saliss of Lights]]. When she is released thanks to the intervention of [[Chaldion Oliwing|Chaldion]], The Walled City is attacked by a weyr of [[Wyverns]] led by a Wyvern Lord. Although she did not partake much in the battle— other than by throwing Molotov cocktails to distract some Wyverns to protect some civilians— she received worldwide attention by protecting [[Bird]] from the city of Pallass, as her actions were broadcasted to the world.<ref name=":2" />
  +
  +
After returning to her inn, Erin discovers the full extent of her new Skills, [Like Fire, Memory] and the [<nowiki/>[[Garden of Sanctuary]]]. She is later kicked out of Celum, while finding out that there are running wagers on whether there would be attacks on previous locations she's been to. <ref>[[Chapter 7.07]]</ref> After the Horns reach Invrisil and connect the magical door, she is manipulated by Magnolia, who uses the magic door to go to Liscor and reveal the extent of the Free Antinium forces to the world.<ref>[[Chapter 7.20]]</ref> Erin also meets the Earthers from Magnolia's mansion, taking them under her wing, and [[Maviola El]], who reveals to her that they share the same Skill, [Like Fire, Memory]. In the aftermath of the Bloodfeast Raiders attack on Celum, she reunited with Ryoka. Later, when [[Geneva Scala]] and her group of Earthers try to make contact with [[Joseph Ortega|Joseph]] in the wake of his appearance on the scrying orbs, Erin pretends to be Joseph and is able to send them penicillin using her connections.<ref>[[Chapter 7.32 D]]</ref>
  +
  +
When Ryoka prepares to go on a run to save [[Tyrion Veltras]]' sons, Erin is able to summon forces from Pallass, Liscor, Celum, and the Free Antinium to combat the Assassin's Guild to secure Ryoka, Maviola, and Saliss's escape from Invrisil.<ref>[[Chapter 7.58|Chapter 8.58]]</ref>
  +
  +
Near the end of Volume 7, four Elite Drake strike forces from Hectval would attack Liscor, due to a previous offence to their Scalespeaker, Yisht. One of the Strike Forces would encounter Erin outside her inn, and shoot her with their crossbows, hitting her with six poison-tipped bolts at her chest and stomach, which causes her to bleed out, while the poison prevents Healing Potions from working.
  +
  +
Knowing she is going to die, despite her friends' attempts to save her, Erin tells them that her life had been happy, and conjured a little bright flame representing all her emotions, and tries to give it to them. Her heart would stop beating right after. [[Kevin]] believing that there is still a way to save her, tells the mages to freeze her immediately to Cryostasis her. Her frozen body would later be laid in the [Garden of Sanctuary]’s hilltop.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2020/12/09/7-61/ Chapter 7.61]</ref>
  +
  +
The day after, despite Kevin claim that Erin is not entirely dead, the other do not believe him as the [Detect Life] Spell doesn't work on her, until [[Reiss]] would have [[Numbtongue]] tell them that Erin is indeed not dead, as the [Detect Death] Spell doesn't work on her either. A second proof would emerge right after from [[Visma]] who points out that Erin's [Field of Preservation] is still working, which makes everyone realize that all of Erin's other Inn Skills are still working as well. With this it became clear to everyone that Erin is neither alive nor dead, but trapped somewhere between life and death.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2020/12/13/7-62/ Chapter 7.62]</ref>
  +
  +
===<u>'''Volume 8:'''</u>===
  +
Erin's revival is a driving force for many characters; Liscor is currently at war with Hectval, and under Pawn's leadership, thousands of Free Antinium have joined Liscor's Army, which has massive political implications. Meanwhile, Lyonette, Saliss, and the [[Wilovan|Gentlemen]] [[Ratici|Callers]] head to Oteslia to research a cure for Erin's frozen state. Based on intel from Selys, the Horns of Hammerad begin organizing a massive raid on the [[Village of the Dead]] to find the Helm of Fire in the hopes of trading it for a cure.
  +
  +
While trapped in the "land of the dead," somewhere between life and death, Erin was first held hostage by [[Kasigna|Kasinga]]. Trying to find what made Erin special, Kasigna created an illusion that Erin had woken up back on Earth, and was one of the first individuals from the "Spirited Generation" to return to Earth. However, Erin realized that she was trapped in an illusion after growing suspicious of the fact that she was able to constantly beat her computer in chess (as she was actually playing Kasigna). Before being devoured by Kasigna, Erin was able to Sescape with the intervention of [[Maviola El|Maviola]], Zel, [[Sserys]], and [[Califor Weishart|Califor]], though both Maviola and Zel ended up sacrificing themselves. She reached the land of House [[Byres Family|Byres]], and was temporarily shielded by [[Yderigrisel]], the knight-dragon. When three of the dead gods were able to subdue all the ghosts within the sanctuary, Erin and Califor were able to escape with the help of the Putrid One. They were able to flee across the ocean to Khelt, where most of Chandrar's ghosts were protected by Khelt's rulers. However, they weren't able to withstand all six of the dead gods, but Erin was able to summon the umbrella that brought forth sunshine from the land of the living (offered to her by Tamaroth during the Winter Solstice), and the blade of kings that belonged to King Arthur, causing the gods to flee.<ref>[[Chapter 8.11 E]]</ref>
  +
  +
Under the tutelage of several [Witches], Erin is tasked to listen to the stories of the ghosts present, becoming acquainted with famous historical figures such as the [Sage] who invented Sage's Grass and Elucina the [Rebel of String].<ref>[[Chapter 8.22 HE]]</ref> During Khelt's war with Medain and the Claiven Earth, she is present when the former rulers of Khelt are able to make contact with [[Fetohep]].<ref>[[Chapter 8.26 FK]]</ref> With his help, she is able to pass a message to her friends in the land of the living.<ref>[[Chapter 8.33 R]]</ref>

=== Abilities: ===
  +
  +
====<u>Chess Player Master</u>====
  +
The strongest ability that define her, born from her love of it. She is so good at chess that she can win against Professional Chess Players like; [[Niers Astoragon|Niers]],<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/04/25/2-17/ Chapter 2.18]</ref> [[Az’kerash]]<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2018/04/14/4-28/ Chapter 4.28]</ref> and [[Teriarch]].<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2020/07/01/interlude-a-meeting-of-druids/ Interlude – A Meeting of Druids]</ref>
  +
  +
She can also win against opponents that use Skills to cheat like; the Class Skill that all [Tactician] have which tell when they’re being led into a trap,<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2016/10/02/1-19/ Chapter 1.19]</ref> [Sense Intentions] to know were Erin is going to place her next piece,<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/06/21/2-31/ Chapter 2.38]</ref> and [Path to Victory] to know the path for winning. Although she may not win against Skills like [Path to Victory] on the first try, after a few more games, she progress until those Skills give her little trouble, and wins.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2020/03/01/7-11/ Chapter 7.11]</ref>
  +
  +
She can also play chess in her own head, which allows her to play blindfolded or multi task against two or four low or non-professionals chess opponents at the same time.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2016/10/30/1-24/ Chapter 1.24] & [https://wanderinginn.com/2020/10/20/7-54/ Chapter 7.54]</ref>
  +
  +
====<u>Charisma</u>====
  +
Erin posses a natural charisma that command attention and makes people enjoy being in her company, put up with her oddities, or follow her to do the right thing. They do so because she is likeable, able to find the best in people, and caring for those who no one cared about.
  +
  +
====<u>Willpower</u>====
  +
Erin has a strong will as she does not back away from dangerous situations, people with high authority, and when the odds are against her if it means to do what is right. She can also look someone's who opposes and pressures her in their eyes until they back away, even if they use a Skill or Aura on her. (A point to this is that in Innworld those who do so are actually clashing of their wills with their own Aura, even if they don't have an Aura Skill or are unaware that they are doing so).
  +
  +
After obtained [Crowd Control] and mastered some control over her Aura, she can enforce her will on others who are in her Inn, like slowing down their movements, prevents an angry crowd from rioting, and prevents others who are at odds with her from entering her Inn. Her will is at her strongest when she is in her own Inn, but even so, someone with a stronger will and/or aura can still resist or oppose her will.
  +
  +
====<u>Manipulation</u>====
  +
While it does not always work fully or at all with anyone or always, most of the time Erin is able to have others do what she wants. This range from confusing others so she can pry some information that they would not otherwise reveal, to misdirecting others initial intentions to something else entirety.
  +
  +
After she obtained [Crowd Control] and mastered some control over her Aura, she is now able to feel the flow of a crowd of people, and if the conditions are ideal, she can have them ignore and walking around her as if she weren’t there, calm them, or turn them into a riot.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2020/06/24/7-30/ Chapter 7.30]</ref>
  +
  +
====<u>Pragmatic Thinking</u>====
  +
Erin can come up with plans or solutions that are different from the norm. This allows her to make something out from a difficult situation from what she has at hand that otherwise others would have never thought about.
  +
  +
====<u>Fighting Talent</u>====
  +
As noted by Calruz, Erin has a talent and sense for battle. True to this, after a few hours in her first combat exercise, not only was she able to overwhelm Toren (he was low level at the time) in a fist fight, but she also unlock [Power Strike]. She is still weak, and need to practice and train to show her full potential,<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/02/07/1-41/ Chapter 1.41]</ref> but progressing fights have shown results, like being able to advancing [Power Strike] it into [Minotaur Punch].
  +
  +
====<u>Singing</u>====
  +
As noted by Ryoka, while Erin isn’t a great singer, and her breathing is out of synch and sometimes sang an entire octave off, the passion she put in her songs made up for all of it.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/04/22/2-16/ Chapter 2.17]</ref>
  +
  +
====<u>Dream Teleportation (?)</u>====
  +
Somehow Erin had once, while she was dreaming, briefly walked into the Land of the Fae. It is currently not known how exactly she had done so, other than it having originate from herself.<ref>[https://wanderinginn.com/2017/05/03/2-19/ Chapter 2.21] & [https://wanderinginn.com/2020/12/23/solstice-pt-7/ Solstice (Pt. 3)]</ref>
  +
  +
==== <u>Memory Manifestation</u> ====
  +
In the land of the dead, Erin discovers that in her half-dead, half-alive state, she is able to conjure objects from her memory, such as weapons and food, which ghosts are able to use. However, the items she can materialize fade quickly.<ref>[[Chapter 8.32]]</ref> Using this ability, she is also able to summon King Arthur's sword from the land of the fae. She can also recreate scenes from her memory that shows the people that she known, for others to see.
  +
  +
Should a Dead God take hold of any of these conjure objects and consume them like Relc's spear, Erin will lose every memory about them, which creates holes in her memory, and will not be able to remember them even when others tell her what she just lost.

Latest revision as of 07:47, 16 November 2021

Erin Solstice is the main protagonist of The Wandering Inn. She is an [Innkeeper] and master-class chess player. She first wandered in to this world on her way to the bathroom and has been stuck ever since.

Appearance[]

Erin has fair skin, hazel eyes and light brown hair with the slightest orange tint.[2] While initially she had short hair, it grew longer, to the point where she can tie it at the back of her head.[3] She would eventually get her hair cut,[4] but it would still be longer than the start.[5] She wears a custom-ordered variation of a t-shirt and pants,[6] and a worker apron.

Personality[]

She is quite social, and tends to speak a lot. She is not very deceptive and is bad at keeping secrets from others. She is very politically correct, and goes to great pains to enforce equal rights within the territory of her inn.

If she is threatened, she does not hesitate to fight back, however she is unlikely to throw the first punch.

She loves playing chess, but is unwilling to view it as anything more than a game, thus preventing her from gaining levels for being skilled in it.

As a homebody, she views the longest acceptable travel times as sixteen hours, by plane. As such anything else that may take her longer then that, even if she travelled for free there and back, with luxury accommodations included, she would still not go.[7]

Background[]

Erin Solstice was born on the 21st of June, 1996, coincidentally on the same day that the Summer Solstice occurred. Due to this coincidence and her family surname, her parents had said that her birth was a sign.[8]

She lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan.[9]

Erin was a child prodigy at chess, reaching an ELO of 2000 as a kid. She went to many tournaments, studied and played chess late into the night.[10] She won many local tournaments and also was invited to some big ones where she never won first place. She only came close once in Havana.[11] She once played a female Grandmaster, but lost because of her excitement.[12]

She went to tournaments all around the world at a young age, casually learning local customs and languages (among them Spanish, French, Dutch and Japanese at the very least) there but doesn't speak any of them fluently aside from some words. She didn't do well in French classes.[1]

When she was younger, she dreamed of being a astronaut. Then, when she’d been slightly older she’d wanted to be a legendary chess player, someone who could beat even a computer in chess. And then she’d wanted to be a chess commentator, someone with a huge following or even a Youtube channel.[13] At some point during her youth, she had been fed up with chess[10], rebelled and and got away from the game, but as one of her latest developments back on Earth, she was fascinated with chess again and pursued a more casual chess gaming.[14] She assumes she might be at 2400 if she had kept playing constantly.[10] She later didn’t enroll in college, preferring to work as a chess tutor and tournament contender to save up money before going on to study.[15]

Erin had a close relationship with her loving parents. She once had a boyfriend,[16] but never lost her virginity.[17] It is not clear if said "boyfriend" is the same one as her online relationship with mysterio_Gamer12, whom she met during online chess games. She had been certain he was a handsome guy... until she found out, during one awkward Skype conversation, that mysterio was actually a Polish girl who thought she was a guy.[18]

After having arrived in this new harsh world, she found an empty inn. With no place to go, she took it as her own and decided to reopen it under the name The Wandering Inn, hoping it would make it easier for her to survive. With no prior experience of handling an inn, she often met with hardships and slowly had to accustom herself to a live as an [Innkeeper].

Chronology[]

Volume 1:[]

When Erin was going around a corner in her home in Michigan intending to enter the bathroom, she suddenly found herself face to face with a Dragon in a cave.

After running from the Dragon and some Goblins who chased her, Erin found an abandoned Inn and became an [Innkeeper]. She spent the next few days surviving monster attacks and fending off Goblins, before getting her first customers.[19]

For a while, Erin only got the same three customers — Relc, Klbkch, and Pisces — the former two being Senior Guardsman from the local city of Liscor, and the latter being a wandering Necromancer.[20]

At one point, Erin killed a Goblin Chieftain that nearly raped and killed her. She then befriended and served some Goblins and Antinium, teaching them chess in the process.[21]

In Liscor, the city closest to the Wandering Inn, as Erin called her inn by now, she met several people who also began to help her, prominently among them the Drakes Olesm and Selys as well as the Gnoll merchant Krshia.[22]

Erin was nearly killed again when Goblins attacked her Inn, and was saved by Rags — one of her Goblin customers whom she named — and Klbkch, the latter of whom died protecting her. Because of Klbkch’s death, Erin lost the protection of Liscor’s watch, and Relc as a customer.[23]

After Klbkch’s death, Erin met an Antinium Worker whom she helped become the individual Pawn. She played chess against him and around hundred other Workers that accompanied him in an Immortal Game, gaining the skill [Immortal Moment] as a result. At some point, Erin met the Named Adventurer, Gazi Pathseeker, when she was destroying a Shield Spider’s Nest. Because of that and her [Immortal Moment] Skill, Gazi took an immediate interest in Erin.[24][10]

After finding her Inn ransacked by a mysterious robber, Erin searched for some bodyguards to protect her and her Inn. Unable to afford guards, Pisces, who hasn’t paid for most of his meals, then gave Erin a skeleton to be her bodyguard as a form of payment. The skeleton, who was later named Toren, became Erin’s first employee and helped her gather and serve food and drinks to Goblins and Antinium.[25][15]

After the discovery of a crypt a few miles away from Liscor, Adventurers began flocking to the city. Erin, who had only had a skeleton, Goblins, and Antinium, in her Inn for a while, needed to protect herself and her guests from the visiting Human Adventurers.[26]

Eventually, an adventuring group called the Horns of Hammerad stopped by her Inn and became the first customers to rent a room. When Klbkch’s successor, Ksmvr, maimed Pawn, Erin used [Immortal Moment] to sing and make her songs come to life.[27]

The leader of the Silver Ranked team, the Minotaur named Calruz, tought Erin and Toren how to fight after seeing Erin fail to protect Pawn. Erin learned [Power Strike] in a day, and was told that she is talented.[28]

When the expedition by the Horns and several other Silver Ranked teams failed and unleashed Skinner and thousands of Undead, Erin’s Inn was attacked by the Undead. The Antinium Chess Club, led by Knight, rushed to Erin’s Inn to help protect her.[29]

Erin, Toren, and the individuals managed to fend off the Undead for a while, but were eventually overwhelmed when Skinner himself comes. Erin, who fell under the effects of Skinner’s [Terror] spell, was unable to fight, and Knight died.

After Knight’s death Erin used [Immortal Moment] and played chess against herself for an eternity. She played for what felt like years, until living became fear, and fear became living. When Erin stopped playing, she still felt fear from Skinner’s spell, but she was used to the fear and thus able to fight back.

Using up all of her acid jars, Erin was eventually forced out of her Inn in a desperate charge against Skinner. Erin, Toren, and the remaining Individuals, managed to badly wound Skinner, forcing it to shed its protective shell of dead skin. However, this gave Skinner the speed and mobility it didn’t have before, and almost killed Erin.

Erin was saved by Klbkch, who was revived by the Rite of Anastases and saved Erin just in time, forcing Skinner to realize it was outmatched and retreat. Rags and her tribe chased the monster down and finished it off, causing all the Undead to leave, ending the attack on Liscor.

The next day, Erin wept for the dead.[30]

Volume 2:[]

Afterwards, Erin met Ryoka, a fellow Earthworlder, as Ryoka stopped by in her inn. The two girls befriended each other,[31] and rushed to the crypt ruin where the Horns of Hammerad had failed, because they wanted to rescue Ceria, who was together with Olesm the only remaining survivors of the expedition.[32]

Exiting the ruins, Erin and Ryoka were greeted by Gazi who tried to kidnap and bring them to Flos, her [King]. Despite help from many high-leveled natives of Liscor, they could barely prevent Gazi from succeeding; Erin poked out Gazi's main eye and caused her to flee the scene.[33]

After a long brainstorming session, Ryoka left Erin to take care of her own things,[34] while Erin had to face the arriving winter. Her skeleton Toren blew up the old inn, and Erin's friends helped her reconstruct a new inn much closer to Liscor.[35] Erin also had her first successes as a salesperson for hamburgers short after.[36] It then turned out that the Liscorians quickly copied Erin's recipe, and in an attempt to top them again, she started an iPhone concert on a whim - something that has not been repeated afterwards. At that time, Erin also received a magical chessboard[37] and assembled a banquet for Frost Faeries who gifted her the Faerie Flowers.[17]

Erin gained her first living employee soon afterwards: Lyonette, who was reluctant to became a [Barmaid] in her inn.[38] Her employment also created a rift between Erin and all Gnolls in Liscor,[39] as Lyonette had been condemned to death in exile by the Liscorian authorities. However, Erin could steadily attract more business to her inn, most prominently the adventurer Halrac[40]. She also saw the revival of the Horns of Hammerad in that time.[41]

While Ryoka was away on her delivery from Teriarch, Erin was invited by Lady Magnolia Reinhart to her mansion in Invrisil[1], and returned from there shortly before Ryoka came back with Mrsha.[14]

After Erin overworked Toren, he stranded her nearby Celum. Ryoka found Erin in Celum, and there the two heard the news of Esthelm's fall.

Volume 3:[]

Erin meets the Horns of Hammerad in Celum, and is given a magical door by them and then escorted back to Liscor. On her way back to Liscor, Erin and the Horns come across the partly rebuilt city of Esthelm, struggling to survive after the goblin lord attack. One day after arriving back at her inn, she kick start a relief mission to provide food, material, and adventures to help protect the city from further goblin attacks.

Back in Liscor, Erin throws a Christmas party that ends with her crying over Earth and all those she missed. The next day, she has three visitors who give her an Ancient Coin.[42]

Volume 4:[]

When Regrika Blackpaw kills Brunkr, Erin saw through her and Ikriss' disguise and assembled Griffon Hunt, the Halfseekers, Zel Shivertail, and Wall Lord Ilvriss to confront them. In the ensuing battle, Ulrien is killed while Ijvani was badly damaged.

After Ryoka leaves Liscor, Erin houses the Redfang 5 in her Inn, which causes Zel to leave, despite him defending her decision to protect them. When Zel Shivertail died in the battle against the Goblin Lord, Erin can be seen crying in her Inn.

Volume 5:[]

At the request of Wall Lord Ilvriss, Erin connects her magical door to the Walled City of Pallass, the City of Inventions. When the Face-Eater Moths attacked Liscor, Erin helps fight them off while using the magical door to get aid from Celum and Pallass.

During the Raskghar arc, the door played a vital role in bringing about Gold-Ranked Adventurers from Pallass, and defeating the Raskghar. With the defeat of the Raskghar, the Cave Goblins under their servitude were freed and put under the protection of Erin and the five Redfang Goblins.

When the Flooded Waters Tribe and Redfang Tribe arrive in Liscor, Erin fed many of them over several days. And finally, when the Goblin Lord was driven to Liscor by the Humans in the North to take over the city, the Cave Goblins, the Flooded Waters Tribe, and the Redfang Tribe, with Erin's request, fought to defend the city of Liscor. This resulted in over 200,000 Goblins dying that day, including Headscratcher and Shorthilt.

Volume 6:[]

In the aftermath of the Goblin King's attack, Erin mourns the death of her Goblin friends, and holes up in her inn for several days. She reveals the truth about being from another world to Lyonette, Mrsha, and Numbtongue. Later, Erin goes on vacation to Pallass for a few weeks, meeting new friends such as Lasica, Rufelt, Maughin, and Grimalkin. She helps in Liscor's election by properly introducing Liscor and Pallass to each other.

Wistram mages come to Liscor to kidnap the Horns of Hammerad and to invite Erin to Wistram. When Erin realizes that they have abducted the Horns, she secretly organizes an attack on them. Later, Crelers emerge from the Bloodfields, coming through Erin's magical door and swarming her inn. As a result, the Wandering Inn is almost destroyed.

In the aftermath of the Creler attack, Toren confronts Erin when she is alone in the ruins of the inn. Their ensuing fight almost ends with Erin's death at the hands of Toren, but at the last moment, he relents and reveals that he possesses, to some degree, a conscience. Toren then tries to commit suicide to Erin's grief, though unbeknowst to her, Toren is abducted by Ijvani by Az'kerash's orders. [5]

Volume 7:[]

Broken by Toren's death, Erin goes to Pallass on vacation for two weeks while the Wandering Inn is being rebuilt. While experimenting with her new Skill, she is arrested by Pallass's Watch and briefly sent to prison, where she meets Saliss of Lights. When she is released thanks to the intervention of Chaldion, The Walled City is attacked by a weyr of Wyverns led by a Wyvern Lord. Although she did not partake much in the battle— other than by throwing Molotov cocktails to distract some Wyverns to protect some civilians— she received worldwide attention by protecting Bird from the city of Pallass, as her actions were broadcasted to the world.[43]

After returning to her inn, Erin discovers the full extent of her new Skills, [Like Fire, Memory] and the [Garden of Sanctuary]. She is later kicked out of Celum, while finding out that there are running wagers on whether there would be attacks on previous locations she's been to. [44] After the Horns reach Invrisil and connect the magical door, she is manipulated by Magnolia, who uses the magic door to go to Liscor and reveal the extent of the Free Antinium forces to the world.[45] Erin also meets the Earthers from Magnolia's mansion, taking them under her wing, and Maviola El, who reveals to her that they share the same Skill, [Like Fire, Memory]. In the aftermath of the Bloodfeast Raiders attack on Celum, she reunited with Ryoka. Later, when Geneva Scala and her group of Earthers try to make contact with Joseph in the wake of his appearance on the scrying orbs, Erin pretends to be Joseph and is able to send them penicillin using her connections.[46]

When Ryoka prepares to go on a run to save Tyrion Veltras' sons, Erin is able to summon forces from Pallass, Liscor, Celum, and the Free Antinium to combat the Assassin's Guild to secure Ryoka, Maviola, and Saliss's escape from Invrisil.[47]

Near the end of Volume 7, four Elite Drake strike forces from Hectval would attack Liscor, due to a previous offence to their Scalespeaker, Yisht. One of the Strike Forces would encounter Erin outside her inn, and shoot her with their crossbows, hitting her with six poison-tipped bolts at her chest and stomach, which causes her to bleed out, while the poison prevents Healing Potions from working.

Knowing she is going to die, despite her friends' attempts to save her, Erin tells them that her life had been happy, and conjured a little bright flame representing all her emotions, and tries to give it to them. Her heart would stop beating right after. Kevin believing that there is still a way to save her, tells the mages to freeze her immediately to Cryostasis her. Her frozen body would later be laid in the [Garden of Sanctuary]’s hilltop.[48]

The day after, despite Kevin claim that Erin is not entirely dead, the other do not believe him as the [Detect Life] Spell doesn't work on her, until Reiss would have Numbtongue tell them that Erin is indeed not dead, as the [Detect Death] Spell doesn't work on her either. A second proof would emerge right after from Visma who points out that Erin's [Field of Preservation] is still working, which makes everyone realize that all of Erin's other Inn Skills are still working as well. With this it became clear to everyone that Erin is neither alive nor dead, but trapped somewhere between life and death.[49]

Volume 8:[]

Erin's revival is a driving force for many characters; Liscor is currently at war with Hectval, and under Pawn's leadership, thousands of Free Antinium have joined Liscor's Army, which has massive political implications. Meanwhile, Lyonette, Saliss, and the Gentlemen Callers head to Oteslia to research a cure for Erin's frozen state. Based on intel from Selys, the Horns of Hammerad begin organizing a massive raid on the Village of the Dead to find the Helm of Fire in the hopes of trading it for a cure.

While trapped in the "land of the dead," somewhere between life and death, Erin was first held hostage by Kasinga. Trying to find what made Erin special, Kasigna created an illusion that Erin had woken up back on Earth, and was one of the first individuals from the "Spirited Generation" to return to Earth. However, Erin realized that she was trapped in an illusion after growing suspicious of the fact that she was able to constantly beat her computer in chess (as she was actually playing Kasigna). Before being devoured by Kasigna, Erin was able to Sescape with the intervention of Maviola, Zel, Sserys, and Califor, though both Maviola and Zel ended up sacrificing themselves. She reached the land of House Byres, and was temporarily shielded by Yderigrisel, the knight-dragon. When three of the dead gods were able to subdue all the ghosts within the sanctuary, Erin and Califor were able to escape with the help of the Putrid One. They were able to flee across the ocean to Khelt, where most of Chandrar's ghosts were protected by Khelt's rulers. However, they weren't able to withstand all six of the dead gods, but Erin was able to summon the umbrella that brought forth sunshine from the land of the living (offered to her by Tamaroth during the Winter Solstice), and the blade of kings that belonged to King Arthur, causing the gods to flee.[50]

Under the tutelage of several [Witches], Erin is tasked to listen to the stories of the ghosts present, becoming acquainted with famous historical figures such as the [Sage] who invented Sage's Grass and Elucina the [Rebel of String].[51] During Khelt's war with Medain and the Claiven Earth, she is present when the former rulers of Khelt are able to make contact with Fetohep.[52] With his help, she is able to pass a message to her friends in the land of the living.[53]

Abilities:[]

Chess Player Master[]

The strongest ability that define her, born from her love of it. She is so good at chess that she can win against Professional Chess Players like; Niers,[54] Az’kerash[55] and Teriarch.[56]

She can also win against opponents that use Skills to cheat like; the Class Skill that all [Tactician] have which tell when they’re being led into a trap,[57] [Sense Intentions] to know were Erin is going to place her next piece,[58] and [Path to Victory] to know the path for winning. Although she may not win against Skills like [Path to Victory] on the first try, after a few more games, she progress until those Skills give her little trouble, and wins.[59]

She can also play chess in her own head, which allows her to play blindfolded or multi task against two or four low or non-professionals chess opponents at the same time.[60]

Charisma[]

Erin posses a natural charisma that command attention and makes people enjoy being in her company, put up with her oddities, or follow her to do the right thing. They do so because she is likeable, able to find the best in people, and caring for those who no one cared about.

Willpower[]

Erin has a strong will as she does not back away from dangerous situations, people with high authority, and when the odds are against her if it means to do what is right. She can also look someone's who opposes and pressures her in their eyes until they back away, even if they use a Skill or Aura on her. (A point to this is that in Innworld those who do so are actually clashing of their wills with their own Aura, even if they don't have an Aura Skill or are unaware that they are doing so).

After obtained [Crowd Control] and mastered some control over her Aura, she can enforce her will on others who are in her Inn, like slowing down their movements, prevents an angry crowd from rioting, and prevents others who are at odds with her from entering her Inn. Her will is at her strongest when she is in her own Inn, but even so, someone with a stronger will and/or aura can still resist or oppose her will.

Manipulation[]

While it does not always work fully or at all with anyone or always, most of the time Erin is able to have others do what she wants. This range from confusing others so she can pry some information that they would not otherwise reveal, to misdirecting others initial intentions to something else entirety.

After she obtained [Crowd Control] and mastered some control over her Aura, she is now able to feel the flow of a crowd of people, and if the conditions are ideal, she can have them ignore and walking around her as if she weren’t there, calm them, or turn them into a riot.[61]

Pragmatic Thinking[]

Erin can come up with plans or solutions that are different from the norm. This allows her to make something out from a difficult situation from what she has at hand that otherwise others would have never thought about.

Fighting Talent[]

As noted by Calruz, Erin has a talent and sense for battle. True to this, after a few hours in her first combat exercise, not only was she able to overwhelm Toren (he was low level at the time) in a fist fight, but she also unlock [Power Strike]. She is still weak, and need to practice and train to show her full potential,[62] but progressing fights have shown results, like being able to advancing [Power Strike] it into [Minotaur Punch].

Singing[]

As noted by Ryoka, while Erin isn’t a great singer, and her breathing is out of synch and sometimes sang an entire octave off, the passion she put in her songs made up for all of it.[63]

Dream Teleportation (?)[]

Somehow Erin had once, while she was dreaming, briefly walked into the Land of the Fae. It is currently not known how exactly she had done so, other than it having originate from herself.[64]

Memory Manifestation[]

In the land of the dead, Erin discovers that in her half-dead, half-alive state, she is able to conjure objects from her memory, such as weapons and food, which ghosts are able to use. However, the items she can materialize fade quickly.[65] Using this ability, she is also able to summon King Arthur's sword from the land of the fae. She can also recreate scenes from her memory that shows the people that she known, for others to see.

Should a Dead God take hold of any of these conjure objects and consume them like Relc's spear, Erin will lose every memory about them, which creates holes in her memory, and will not be able to remember them even when others tell her what she just lost.

Possessions[]
