Personal Story

The Story So Far: Not so many people can say that they've climbed a mountain on every continent that has one. Fewer still can say they've stolen a golden idol from a tribe of cannibals. Among women in a male-dominated society, Ursula is probably unique in being able to make these sorts of claims.

Ever since she was a small girl, Ursula had broken the rules set down for her: climbing trees, playing in the mud, exploring the woods, and plenty of other things "that a proper young lady shouldn't have been doing."

After all, she was as good as any man. When she was accepted to Boston University, she set out to prove it, excelling and exceeding the other students in Archaeology. She graduated top of her class and used her inheritance to set herself up as an explorer, roaming all over the world and writing articles for magazines.

Now her path has brought her here to Arkham, following a shipment of stolen relics, a cult that seems to have members in very corner of the world, and a trail of corpses. Smiling to herself, Ursula thinks, "Now THIS is an adventure."
