Urpy was born to a family of fishermen outside of Brisker's Cove. Her family was set in their ways, following old spirits and older customs. A happy childhood on the coast was shattered by Krolvin raiders who sought to make slaves of Urpy and her kin. On a fishing vessel at the time of the raid, Urpy hid in the nets and watched as her life was torn asunder, resulting in a deep hatred for the Krolvin and slavers. After the raids, Urpy was discovered by empire soldiers who came too late to stop the damage to her village. Being a young girl on the crest of womanhood at the time, Urpy was sent to a workhouse for orphans. She did not stay long at the workhouse though, Urpy plotted and made good her escape. Finding employment on a merchant ship, she began her sailing career fetching powder and serving drinks to the crew.

After a few months underway, the ship was attacked by a pirate vessel and Urpy was given the choice of joining them or dying. Stating her hatred of the empire and her desire for revenge, Urpy joined the crew and enjoys a fruitful career of plotting to undermine the Empire's trade routes on the western sea.

Full Title

Urpy's full title is Her Majesty Lady Urpy the Eloquent, Siren of the Deep. This is used in extremely formal occasions when announcements are necessary. Otherwise she prefers to be called Lady Urpy.

  • Siren of the Deep was bestowed by, then captain, Jaysehn when he witnessed Urpy singing while boarding an enemy ship. Hiding behind some crates, she sang a few lines to draw the Krolvin to her position only to leap from hiding at the last minute and slit their throats.
