Description

Commissioned work for :iconrvargasrn: Rafael Vargas
I depicted her having some sort of late-night tavern brawl with a bunch of rival thieves, which ended up outside.
She's having fun, apparently :D

From the creator:
Taryn; 22-year-old thief-acrobat. Neutral Good.

A child born to a poor family, Taryn grew up wanting better things in life for herself and her family. She spent many nights dreaming of being a famous performer, showered with riches and exploring the world. When a circus troupe visited her hometown, she became enamored with gymnastics and acrobatics. She was often seen practicing moves instead of doing her chores. Aware that her street smarts, senses and sleight of hand were just as sharp as her gymnastic abilities, she experimented in petty thievery practicing on petty criminals and con men. As the years passed, her skills, prowess and audacity grew. The bigger the prize and adrenaline rush, the greater the temptation. By day she was a performing acrobat. At night, she was a daring thief robbing from criminals, criminal organizations, and unscrupulous government officials exploiting the poor. During one run against a corrupt lord, Taryn was seriously wounded, imprisoned and sentenced to death. Her condition worsened as the hour of her execution approached. During this ordeal, a party of adventurers attacking the lord (for different reasons) accidentally came across Taryn and rescued her. She awoke to a healer tending to her injuries and the healer’s smiling sister.

Years later Taryn has remained by their side as their loyal confidant and friend. Taryn’s mischievous nature endears her to Shanna. Taryn’s combat abilities and awareness of worldly matters endears her to Jenna. Taryn balances the sisters whenever there is a need.
