Mina was born the 4th child of human parents Gunter and Hadwisa Othir, they were both surprised to have a tiefling child and blamed each other's families. Hadwisa swore to love their daughter regardless, Gunter however could not and left them all. The townsfolk mistrusted Mina and her family because of her. Mina's brothers and sister blamed her for their father leaving and the townsfolk but never in front of their mother. Despite all this Mina grew up happy, loved to read, and sing, and play the flute. One day as a teen her talent was discovered by a traveling bard, who offered to take her away and train her. Mina didn't want to leave her village, but her mother told her probably best that Mina go and learn to hone her talents.

A shepherd in the fields outside a small village on the Sword Coast, Meadow's early life was simple: many responsibilities caring for flocks, but a low pressure life that she could handle well: playing the pipes, tending her animals, letting the boys chase her when she could be bothered. When the war came, her family, like that of so many others, found safety in the church; nothing like war to bring converts to Torm. Meadowlark was not as caught up as the others; her life in the fields seemingly gone.
Then came the prophecy. She was told it was for the best, and she was able to keep her spirit through the recruitment, but when the prophecy came, she was sent away. Many are called, and it seems many are chosen as well, since it's sometimes hard to interpret prophecies, and this one was vague enough that it might refer to her, or to any of the dozen that were recruited in her cohort. Three died, and seven washed out, but two of them were chosen, which is to say two made it through the trials, and two of them found the ability to heal. They were destined to become paladins. But with that calling, Meadowlark and Thorgeir were taken from their previous lives. Drills, summonses, assignments, and prayers. Torm needed agents, and they were the chosen ones this year. And, possibly, they might be the fulfilments of the prophecy.
But that would only happen if the situation was right. And so they were sent back to their respective homes, in hopes that the prophecy could someday be fulfilled through them. These two were added to the many others dotting the countryside: children born when the Wagon first touches the horizon; those who were found surrounded by wool [or arguably leather; the scholars disagree on this point]; those who would be taken from the banks of a river; and all the many other criteria that the prophecy seemed so intent to describe, but were (so Meadow though) ultimately unclear.
Except of course for the final clause, which was clear enough: those who would be killed defending Torm.

Serpa is a kobold of a bit less than three feet in height. But what he lacks in stature, he more than makes up in personality. While most of his kind tend to respond to threats with fear, Serpa seems to carry himself with a certain pride. He keeps his head held high, and stands 'mostly' straight.
While he seems somewhat uncomfortable, he wears a set of clothing specially tailored to his unorthodox body. His scales seem thicker than a traditional kobold's and have the shine a meticulously polished bronze. His gear is simple and straightforward, but for one unusual affectation. He wears a bronze medallion around his neck, which seems to be some sort of mechanical device, but moves in a clock-like manner without any seeming mechanism to power it's function. Aside from this, he carries a crossbow slung across his back with a quiver of bolts. A pair of daggers and a wand are all sheathed at his hip.
Serpa was spawned in the sewers and caverns underneath Neverwinter. Unfortunately, he hatched with wings. And while most kobold societies 'tolerate' their few unfortunate brethren to have this deformity, Serpa had the double-sin of growing the thicker mono-hued scales which marked him as a true descendant of dragonkind. Rather than revel in the proof of their draconic lineage, his people cruelly amputated his wings and cast him out.
Serpa was so young that he couldn't understand what had happened or why. By sheer luck and determination, the fledgeling managed to escape the underground and found himself in the blinding light of the city. He was shunned there as well, and was often chased and attacked by people on sight simply because of his heritage. But for several years he managed to survive anyways, learning the layout of the city like few even who lived there.
Of course, his luck nearly ran out one night as a group of adventurers were tasked with tracking 'That mangy thief' down. He'd led them on quite a chase, even managing to trick them once or twice. But in the end they had managed to corner him.
Serpa turned, at that moment, defiance in his posture and ready to fight. But then a member of the party instead took pity on him and convinced the others to give him a chance. It turns out that some kobolds clean up rather nicely. And with a bit of soap, some turtle wax and a lot of socializing, Serpa seemed to come into his own. He soon joined the party in their endeavors and despite having some trouble in direct sunlight, he made up for it once the sun was down or the party ventured into buildings or caverns.
Bethrynna was born in a community of moon elves living in the southern portion of the Moonwood north of the city of Silverymoon, one of nine children. She was raised mostly by her mother after her father disappeared. As a result, the family was rather poor, living in a village in the wilderness of the Moonwood. Even so, Bethrynna had a few close friends and lived an ordinary childhood. She learned right and wrong from her family.
Bethrynna’s life changed when an old bladesinger master named Aelar Amakiir passed through the Moonwood looking for an apprentice. Rynna’s grace and skill impressed the elf when she stole one of his spell scrolls and successfully cast it, and she left her family to travel to Evereska to learn bladesinging.
As part of Rynna’s training, her mentor often let her shadow him on adventures as they traveled. On one adventure she met Torgga Rumnahein, a cleric of Azuth, god of wizards, who taught her many things about magic after Rynna tracked down some stolen temple property and retrieved it from the thieving goblins. As part of this adventure, she rescued a Shou fighter named Mei Chen from the goblins as well.
When Rynna had time away from her studies, she liked to play her lute on the streets of Evereska to earn some coin.
Shortly after Rynna had passed her trials and been tattooed with the symbol of the Lion School, Aelar took her to The Halfway Inn outside of Evereska. There they met Torgga and Chen, who had a package for her from her mother. Inside were four items that they said belonged to her father. The first was a purple sash or scarf with gold embroidered runes on it. She remembered her mother making it for her father before he left. Next was a leather thong with a dragon tooth on it, another item Rynna recognized from her childhood as belonging to her father. Third was a magic rapier that glowed with moonlight. Finally they gave her a small pin shaped like a harp. They explained that the reason her father was gone was that he was a member of a secret group called the Harpers, who fought for good and freedom across Faerun. Her father had disappeared on assignment. These items had somehow been delivered to a Harper agent in Neverwinter. They told her that now that her training was complete, it may be time for her to find her father.
And so Bethrynna set out across the Savage North toward Neverwinter on the Sword Coast.

Backstory: Fitzhugh Cavendish (Fitz) is a lovable rogue. He's a highwayman by profession, but his genuine love for everyone he meets makes it hard for him to do the wrong thing for very long. He'll happily rob a wealthy and arrogant merchant, but he's not about to take the last copper from a beggar. He's also something of a method-actor, and when he's in trouble with the law, he likes to impersonate a guard, watchman, or official. If an interesting case comes up while he's pretending to be a lawman, well, he'll do his best to solve it. Background: Charlatan Background Feature (False Identity): You have created a second identity that includes documentation, established acquaintances, and disguises that allow you to assume that persona. Additionally, you can forge documents including official papers and personal letters, as long as you have seen an example of the kind of document or the handwriting you are trying to copy. Heracles Parrot (Fitz' Fake ID): Inspector Parrot is an agent of the Lord's Alliance from Waterdeep (with papers to prove it) with the authority to investigate strange happenings on behalf of the Open Lord. He looks nothing like Fitz, who dons a worn greatcloak and a grey wig (made of real hair) that includes a mutton-chop and moustache, and affects a completely different manner of speach.

Finally, the weapon you conjure can be a shortbow, longbow, light crossbow, or heavy crossbow.
Pact Of The Blade:
You can use your action to create a pact weapon in your empty hand. You can choose the form that this melee weapon takes each time you create it (see chapter 5 for weapon options). You are proficient with it while you wield it. This weapon counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage.
Your pact weapon disappears if it is more than 5 feet away from you for 1 minute or more. It also disappears if you use this feature again, if you dismiss the weapon (no action required), or if you die.
You can transform one magic weapon into your pact weapon by performing a special ritual while you hold the weapon. You perform the ritual over the course of 1 hour, which can be done during a short rest. You can then dismiss the weapon, shunting it into an extradimensional space, and it appears whenever you create your pact weapon thereafter. You can't affect an artifact or a sentient weapon in this way. The weapon ceases being your pact weapon if you die, if you perform the 1-hour ritual on a different weapon, or if you use a 1-hour ritual to break your bond to it. The weapon appears at your feet if it is in the extradimensional space when the bond breaks.
Healing Light: 4d6 Pool of healing, heal someone within 60 feet from the pool as a bonus action (up to 3d6 at a time). Pool resets after a long rest.

Dark Shard Amulet (Wondrous item, common (requires attunement by a warlock))
This amulet is fashioned from a single shard of resilient extraplanar material originating from the realm of your warlock patron. While you are wearing it, you gain the following benefits:
• You can use the amulet as a spellcasting focus for your warlock spells.
• You can try to cast a cantrip that you don't know. The cantrip must be on the warlock spell list, and you must make a DC 10 Intelligence (Arcana) check. If the check succeeds, you cast the spell. If the check fails, so does the spell, and the action used to cast the spell is wasted. In either case, you can't use this property again until you finish a long rest.
Bella grew up in a somewhat wealthy household as a middle child to her parents, Ebon and Sora Mulfield, where she studied the family business diligently under her mother and used her business acumen to start giving loans to friends of her friends, for "simple" interest. Her loan sharking eventually led her into blackmailing, though, she never blackmailed her loan victims, instead using them to give her targets for the blackmail. Her parents kicked her out when they discovered her operation. Cut off and unused to living on the "streets" (it was a forest) she prayed for help from anyone who could help. She heard a voice in the forest, and wary of fey ignored it for a while until she came upon an injured man in the forest. She rushed to pick his pockets but instead, as she touched him, a warm arcane magic flowed from her to him, healing him. Awed by what happened, she turned over a new leaf, dedicated to helping others, or is she just milking her helpers ability in trade for power?
