Reniss is a halfelf ranger who spent most of the last ten years hunting and trapping in the woods around her parents’ farm. She always wanted to venture further from home and see more of the Valley, but was very protective of her frail, hemophiliac sister Jen. As Jen came of age, she showed that her physical weakness was balanced by a powerful mind, and she was quick to pick up the arcane teachings of a second-rate wizard who had retired to the area. When Jen was selected to go to serve as an apprentice to the small cadre of wizards that served the Council, Reniss finally felt free to roam far and wide while her sister was safe behind the great Zelen Wall. Reniss was weeks away from the Keep when the sending stone her sister had given her suddenly came to life with the single spoken word “Modra”. Reniss got to the Keep as fast as she could, only to find Zacraar’s forces occupying the Keep and the Council army laying siege. She knew her sister was dead, and probably among the undead abominations manning the Wall. Reniss served as a scout and archer during the siege. After Etoila’s Entourage destroyed Zacraar, Reniss heard rumours of the name Modra linked to the city of Overlook.
