    Windrunner

    The dense western forests guard their secrets well. One of these is Windrunner, master archer of the wood, and favored godchild of the wind. Windrunner’s family was killed in a storm on the night of her birth—their house blown down by the gale, contents scattered to the winds. Only the newborn survived, impossibly, among the debris field of death and destruction. In the quiet after the storm, the wind herself took notice of the crying infant that lay safe in the grass. The wind pitied the child and so lifted her into the sky and deposited her on a doorstep in a neighboring village. In the years that followed, the wind returned occasionally to the child’s life, watching from a distance while she honed her skills. Now, after many years of training, Windrunner fires her arrows true to their targets. She moves with blinding speed, as if hastened by a wind ever at her back. With a flurry of arrows, she slaughters her enemies, having become, nearly, a force of nature herself.

    Cool, I like it.

    Was that storm that killed Windrunner's family the storm celestial from the Storm Spirit lore? Or is the wind itself that celestial spirit that got captured? Or is that Storm and the wind the same and has nothing to do with Storm Spirit at all?

    This seems a little at odds with itself, I feel like the returning to someone's life bit implies a bit more direct involvement than watching from a distance. A little elaboration here could be nice.

    That small thing aside, I like it.

    IF storm was the one that killed her parents in a rage orso he's inebted to aid her in battle is better than mere pitty on a newborn.
