    Jianshu was an 'apprentice', more like a slave, to a Terrestrial exalted lord who fancied himself a metalsmith. She and a fellow apprentice took to sneaking into his library, teaching themselves the language from some of the few books that were in both Old Realm, and the High Realm they were forced to learn. She took her occasional beatings with pride when she got caught. Then her fellow apprentice got flayed. Not for reading. But for applying what was learned from that reading to the forge work, which included a prayer that was not part of the Immaculate Order. While Jianshu wasn't in time to prevent the whipping, which, unfortunately, turned out to be fatal... it was done in the forge. And the Terrestrial only got a brief moment to stare at the sudden bright dawning of light behind them before the sledgehammer used to work bigger slabs of metal impacted their skull. Since that day, only a few months ago, Jianshu has been on the run, stopping in small villages to trade skills for necessities, including a day of use of a forge and materials.

    Jianshu stands about five foot six, and has brown hair and brown eyes set in an heart-shaped face. She has a thin nose that is a little crooked, as if it broke once upon a time and wasn't set quite straight. She is usually found wearing a simple tunic and skirt, with a leather apron and simple leggings, though when she is -expecting- trouble or is traveling, she trades the apron for chainmail, and a simple undyed cloth cloak. She carries with her a sledgehammer on her back, a sword on her waist, and a knife tucked into her left boot. She also has a bow slung crosswise from the hammer, along with a quiver on her belt.
