Rilla Tordeñas is a human warlord originally from Haven. A worshiper of Kiri-Jolith, Rilla hates injustice and lives her life by the sword – as a swordswoman and a swordsmith, a pillar of strength and perseverance – in hopes of pushing back the monstrous hordes one gleaming arc at a time.
When the black-haired, blue-eyed Rilla first joined Seth Mase’s band, she was a talented fighter. Her metamorphosis into a warlord came about due to the Puncture, which reshaped her talents to match her charisma and ever-intense camaraderie. While Seth is the philosophical leader of the party, Rilla bears its metaphorical battle standard.
A notable moment in Rilla’s history came during the Lupine Wars, when she was bitten by a lupine during the siege of Kalaman. Her subsequent transformation into a wolf was mildly traumatic for her, and for some time she struggled physically and morally with the lycanthropy still dormant in her body. After her experience at the Hollow Temple, however, she seems to have mastered her conflicting impulses and taken on the aspect of den mother.
