Tania was a miracle at birth. While she was being born, her village was besieged by bandits who set fire to her home. Her father fought valiantly, but was no warrior and quickly was slain. Tania’s mother was determined enough to protect her young that she drove a sword through one who came too close, but ultimately died from the stress of child birth. The bandits took Tania in and raised her as their own. Eventually she would sneak out of the bandits camp and join the city guard to defend against them.
