Posessing a seemingly innate talent for the art of necromancy, Yvastriel spent most of her life under the tutelage of one of the finest necromancers the Magedom had to offer. That is, until necromancy was outlawed by the High Council, and the Magedom forces (as if not busy enough with their near-constant wars) began purging them.
Forewarned of this news by her Mistress-- herself a member of the Council-- Yvastriel fled the Magedom and soon found herself hiding out in a neighboring non-magic country; one that had long been at war with the Magedom and as such had outlawed every form of magic. Yvastriel quickly decided that concealing herself among these people was the safest option-- so long as she kept a lid on her magical abilities.
