TABAXI ARTIFICER (MECHANIST)
Val lived most of her life in a tabaxi trade village in the middle of nowhere. When her kids decided they wanted to take some artificing lessons, with the local guild, she went with them and gave it a shot. Though her kids went on to do other things, Val continued building and tinkering. Eventually, she gained enough expertise to become the guild master and build bigger, better constructs. To improve travel for local traders, she began work on a construct capable of carrying heavy loads over long distances.
Everything was fine until a few drunk human traders started harassing the construct outside the local tavern. Val responded by arming her creation in self-defense. To quote her statement in the night watch's report: "The humans broke my robot. So I broke their legs." She was forced to retire from her guild after this incident; her departure is still a sore subject.
With her mate comfortably settled down and her kids grown up, Val decided to take her creation (named Storhund) on the road. She joined Purity to fund some much needed upgrades: Stor gets beat up a lot during field tests.
