Lady Rukiara

At a young age my mother owned a gaming store, she always let me be apart of running it in my own way, and even before that I sat at the dnd table with the adults eating the dice and stomping on figurines. Gaming and tabletop rpgs are in my blood, to this day I've grown up to get into a relationship with a man aspiring to write the next big tabletop game. Some things you're good at, other things, you're born with!
