Background

Benning kom Trikru was born second daughter to a warrior and healer in the village of Coesbur. Younger sister to Gideon, she followed in the shadow of her sister. However, they couldn’t have been more different. While Gideon was a proud, strong youth, Benning was lithe, graceful girl. Benning tried to follow in her mother’s footsteps, but it was clear that she would not be joining Gideon on the battlefield as she went to the Tondc to join the Trikru armies, even if her arrows flew true to mark. Instead her talent was found as a maker. Her father bartered to have her apprentice under a fletcher in the village. Benning trained hard, served as apprentice and focused her spirit on learning her craft. In time she gained the respect of her mentor and others in the village for her craft was both beautiful and deadly. She never lost her shadow ways, being able to quietly pick her way through the forest, finding scraps of metal or bringing down game for her arrows’ feathers.

Gideon resurfaced in her life, right after Benning celebrated her seventeenth birthday. The years had changed both of them. Benning was now a valued member of the makers, her arrows flying straight and true. Gideon was in disfavor, having made several mistakes including embracing the old Earth technology. On her eighteenth birthday, she was recognized for her skill as a fletcher, one of three in the village now, and many of the warriors came courting her favor for her arrows. She didn’t settle on one but didn’t keep herself away. A lover here and there, but she is still young and there is time to find a husband. In some ways, she enjoys her solitude too much to find a partner. She is a good hunter, but not one that can easily point an arrow at another life. In her heart she is a creator, not a destroyer of things. She would rather be in her shop, crafting her bows and arrows anyway. Somehow she managed to gain recognition for her deadly aim, but only bears six diamonds on her left shoulder from Ginia’s skilled hand to speak to those whose life she has taken. She has found her place, even as her sister has fallen out of hers.

Then the star fell from the sky, life in the villiage started to change. Gideon, Wren and Lark captured by the Skaikru, Lark died by Skaikru hands, Gideon formed some odd attachments to these Skaikru, and her sister now placed her life at risk for them. Benning has sit back for far too long and done nothing to interfere. It is not her nature to force her will on others but her sister is at risk. Benning must take steps to protect her.
