These six pregenerated characters are designed for "The Blood of Trinakria" campaign path in the Amazons vs Valkyries adventure setting. Each character is presented with full statistics for beginning play at 1st level and includes a background story that immerses them in the setting, involves them with the plot, and explains their sometimes eclectic skill sets.

Included in this file:

Aketa the Dacian. Giant Kin Fighter. The Celts captured Aketa in battle and sold her to the Romans as a slave. She ended up in a gladiator school and fought for several years. She and Zita recently escaped and they are eager to strike back against the Romans.

Cassicia and Lugius. Human Ranger. Raised deep in the Hercynian Forest among fey and giants, Cassicia honed her skills hunting troglodytes and goblins. Her sidekick, Lugius, is her best friend and guardian.

Nena. Human Priestess (Isis). A devoted follower of Isis, Nena came to Trinakria as a missionary to spread the faith. She does charity work and provides medical care to the Carthaginian mercenaries. She also has a toddler who stays at the temple, but is sometimes unintentionally helpful or inspiring to her.

Veilia the Animal Trainer. Human Bard. Veilia's clan lived in southern Italia and suffered during the wars between Rome and the Greeks of Tarentum. Born into a troupe of minstrels and troubadours, Veilia was destined for a life in entertainment. As a young girl, she met a old animal trainer who taught her the secret languages of animals.

Xanthepia the Spartan. Human Fighter. An ambitious youth with a desire for land and riches, Xanthepia left Sparta to find her fortune as a mercenary serving the wealthiest employers. Since Carthage pays a premium and offers a bonus for Spartans, she has hired on with them.

Zita. Nymph Rogue. Humans captured and enslaved Zita and her sister. The girls were soon separated. Zita ended up in Rome, working for a jeweler. Through happenstance she met another slave girl, a giant named Aketa who was a gladiator. Together they escaped Rome, arriving in Trinakira. Penniless and hungry, they hired on with a mercenary recruiter who promised them a chance to kill Romans. Not really a warrior, Zita sees this job a way to make some quick cash so she can begin searching for her sister.
