Ahava Fairchild and her twin Alaeda were born on a small farm, to an elven woman named Chandrai Si'tria. They were raised by Chandrai and her human husband Derrick Goodmane. Chandrai and Derrick bore many children of their own, which in and of itself was a rare thing for an elf woman to do at all.
It wasn't until twenty eight summers passed that Ahava learned that Derrick was not the twin's real father.
Whilst her twin was out at the healer's office in the nearby village, getting her weekly, needed herbs, Ahava was witness to the slaughter of Chandrai, Derrick, and all of the twins' siblings. Down to the last screaming toddler. Just before the slaughter, Ahava was given a half moon pendant about an inch in length and width both, by her mother, and told to have Alaeda use it to find Aladan Fairchild, who Ahava was informed, was the twins' real father.
After the slaughter, Ahava Goodmane, later renamed as Ahava Fairchild, retrieved her sister, and took off on what she was certain would be a wild goose chase. And it was.
For months, the twins searched Abeir-Toril, looking for their father. Pursued by nameless, black robed individuals. Alaeda using her gifts to divine where their father was. The trail eventually led to Styss, but by no means was it easy to get there for them. It took all of the gold they had secreted away to secure a path to the strange place. Once they found him, they also found his strange 'family'.
Their step mother, Maureen, who's accent they couldn't understand, but she seemed nice enough on most days. Their nephew, Gavin, and his slave girl who's name they couldn't ever remember. And their brother, Lenfal, the man who they would later realize was a very sick and twisted individual that they would sooner hope to avoid than any thing else.
Ahava met, befriended, fell in love with and eventually committed herself to some one, whose name she does not like to divulge at the present time.
Ahava is five feet, one inch tall. She looks to be about 25-28 years of age. Rather lovely in the eyes of some, with her sun tanned skin and her deep, indigo blue eyes. That coupled with knee-length dark brown hair, and an hour glass sort of figure, it was clear that though she had the slightly pointed ears that marked her as half-elven, she leaned more towards her human parentage.
Her and her sister both have a sort of etheral, and euphonious voice, though Ahava tends to move a bit more gracefully than her sickly twin.
