Biography

Personality: Usually quiet, naive, and gentle temperament. Can also be a little bit selfish and impulsive. Mila is very adamant about her honor as a knight (despite the dishonorable nature that she was granted knighthood).
Appearance: A fair skinned girl of slender build. Make one think of a lost puppy. Her thick messy hair the color of rust. In her sapphire eyes, everyone else was an intruder in her own little world, giving a melancholic feel to her. Over her scalemail armor is a tabard made of coarse cloth with a coat of arms, a upright bear carrying a crook.
Origin: Mila hails from the Wolfcry hamlet of Levington. Though it is the place of her birth, she doesn't think of it as much of a home, but would defend it with her life. Whether it is because of a sense of duty as a knight, or because she love Levington more than she is willing to admit, no one knows.
Life before an Adventurer: Mila was an easy target for those stronger than herself. This abuse made her a bit vengeful at times. To avoid others she has always wandered the wilderness and has practically been “an adventurer” since she could walk. A self made survivor. Mila became familiar with the strange and terrifying creatures of the Sleeping Forrest, facing creatures most only dream of in their nightmares.
Family: Father Jaromil Novak. Mother Danica Novak. Older sister Eva Novak. Mila never developed strong emotional bonds to parents, and mostly cared for by Eva Novak. Mila was born a serf bound to serve and pay tributes to a local manor.
Likes: Animals, dolls and manikins (objects that mimic human form), and gambling.
Dislikes: Bullies, crowds, and alcohol.
Friends: She never had any friends because people thought she was strange, parents even instructed their children not to associate with her. Mila prefers the company of animals over humanoids. Mila never hesitates to help the few people she has bonded with.
Enemies: When she was age 15 a bear took up residence in the near by woods. No one willing to take action, the hamlet decided to send Mila to deal with it, possibly hoping she wouldn't come back alive. Although Mila resolved the issue, the hamlet grew to fear her even more. Mila was granted the rank of chevalier and then promptly exiled from Livington, making her an errant knight.
Prized Possessions: Her longsword, armor, and signet ring from when she was “knighted” Sir Mila Novak of Sleeping Forest. She always wears her arms and armor unless she is sleeping and rejects any attempt to persuade her to do otherwise.

Knight's Oath

During Mila's ceremony of knighthood, she swore to uphold these principles and take them very seriously. Though Mila was knighted, it was only used as an excuse to make her leave the hamlet Levington. She was granted a sword, armor, a signet ring, and a mount. Though she has the status of knighthood from House Wolfcry she had no lord or baron to whom she swears loyalty, until she was appointed Abigail's Protector by Fredric Badgercrawl on July 1497.
