Personal Story

The Story So Far: Lily Chen had an unusual childhood, to put it mildly. She was born in mainland China, and on the next day, a group of monks arrived at her home, asking if any children had been born there the night before. The monks were seeking a child of prophecy, and although they were surprised to find that she was a girl, they wished to take and train her at their monastery. Her parents, both poor and devout, agreed, after making sure she would be well cared for.

The monks began her on a rigorous training program nearly as soon as she could walk, teaching her every martial arts technique they could, going so far as to invite instructors from other countries to teach her. She knew from a young age that she was fated to perform an incredibly dangerous task when the time came, so she pursued her studies with a will. Lily learned not only a myriad of deadly unarmed combat techniques, but also how to link her mind to her body on a fundamental level, each supporting the other.

Finally, last month, it happened. One of the monks awoke from his meditations screaming, "The Great Eye is opening! The final days are upon us!" before falling dead.

Now, Lily stands inside a magic shop in Arkham, hoping to find someone or something that will aid her in fulfilling her destiny.


After moving her maximums slider, Lily Chen only restores her stamina/sanity based on its final position (she does not heal 1 point for each notch moved). Additionally, if one of her maximums increases by more than 1 at once, she only restores 1 point of that type.
