Vanessa's beginnings were very mundane oserian middle-class hardships. She fulfilled
the tasks father trusted her in the forge, she was homeschooled in reading and proper
speech. She seeked the military's entry, hoping to one day become a knight. She knew

it was most unlikely with commoner blood, but still, she held hope that one day...

I raise my sword and swear by this troth
To you and your kingdom this is my oath
To forever defend you until death I do depart

One Sword, One Knight, One Heart

Despite Silverhand's best efforts to see truths in Oseria, the One, and the knighthoods doings,
she came to realise their valiance was heeded only in songs. She learned of their true
behaviours and quickly came to notion this wasn't hers. She deserted the services and

swore to bring justice with sweat, not songs of bravery. Her path had truly set afoot then.

│she's a toned, tall woman, towering to 185cm(slightly above six feet).
│she often speaks in a definitive, collected manner despite ulterior circumstance.
│her skin and hair are extremely pale. the clear blonde hair and cyan eyes often get her mistaken for a noble.
│she's very decisive about every little movement, shuffle and posture adjustment, always ready to be challenged.
│in the happening of seeing her without plenty clothing, one would find crude markings of a smith's on her skin as well as whipping scars on her back.

---> Order of the Flawed Knight <---
¹ a nonconformist sect of Oserian believers in The Path of the One
² “the One can be wrong, and thus we should not blindly follow; we should think, and act upon our thoughts as our flawed saint did, regardless of how we might be punished”
³ "thought to have been previously a Knight of Oseria disgraced for breaking the vow upon which he was knighted, in aid what he believed to be a greater good"
it is no longer considered a direct affront to the One. The older generation still do not accept it, but it is no longer criminal in Avendale and Oakenbri to proselytise (give sermons upon) the belief
