Akenna Laeraun is an half-elf from the Wyrdeep Forest. The daughter of Rýnor Laeraun Nalfein and Gardenia of the Wyrdeep. She learned magic and other skills under the tutelage of her grandmother, Essylda Hithneth of the Wyrdeep.

Early Years

Akenna was the only daughter of Gardenia of the Wyrdeep and Rýnor Laeraun Nalfein. She often refers to her mother and grandmother as “Wyrdeep Folk”. Gardenia died shortly after giving birth to Akenna. This left Akenna’s family settlement in the Wyrdeep in peril as their mixture of both fey and elves and half-elves was not well received by other opposing fey factions who did not believe in harmonious relations with the races that originated outside of the forest. There were also incursions from trolls and ogres. Gardenia and Hithneth were staunch and powerful protectors of the settlement, having been well seasoned in protecting the forest against the vicious movements against the forest by the New Empire Turmazyr.

Her grandmother felt that with Gardenia gone, Akenna would have to take up her position as a protector. Essylda Hithneth had hoped that Akenna would be as powerful as Gardenia had been.

Akenna’s lessons consisted of learning Elven, Kanalaan, and Fey (spoken and written). She excelled in elemental magic. Though she learned the basics and application of Fey magic, she struggled with more elaborate applications of the magic. This spurred her grandmother and the other Essylda to resort to drastic measures to make Akenna more receptive to it.

These drastic applications not only made Akenna distance herself from her grandmother but also came under objection by her father Rýnor. For a time, he took over lessons, teaching Akenna how to move through the forest undetected, how to track, and how to slip through the forest unseen. She would help him trap and skin and at night he would tell teach her the histories of the Elven Houses and her Nalfein familial history.
