THE TALE OF JEZZIE BRIGHTGAZE
Jezzie Brightgaze was born to Lola and Fredrick Brightgaze, and into a life of caravans and gypsy hood. Her family worked, lived and traveled all over Cheliax with the famous Steelcoin Circus. Her father Fredrick ‘The Great’, was their main show. A magician of vast skill and considered one of the best performers in the country. His act drew a majority of the circus’ audience, therefore giving much fame and fortune to Jezzie’s family. Her mother Lola was the circus’ healer and mid-wife, a trade that Jezzie was planned to follow.
It was years later on one fateful day that her father caught her literally playing with fire. Observing her natural talent and affinity with the elements, Fredrick took his daughter under his wing for guidance. Jezzie was a beautiful woman and a talented magic user in her own right. She and her father had quite the act which drew even larger crowds. The biggest the Steelcoin Circus had ever seen.
It was in her 18th season during a show that she and her father were performing, that the owner’s wife Gretchen was delivering Samson Steelcoin’s first born. They had, had a difficult time conceiving and with the help of Lola’s powerful herbs had finally gotten with child. It was a tough delivery and things seemed to be going for the worse. As Jezzie and Fredrick were on stage, Lola was fighting to save mother and child, but her efforts were in vain as both perished. Samson was devastated and the rage that built up in his soul was surging to burst out. He turned his eyes to Lola and blamed her for everything. He struck out and let the anger wash over him and take control, his senses lost.
After the show when Fredrick and Jezzie saw the chaos and learned of the two deaths, Fredrick sent Jezzie to their wagon to wait while he sought out her mother. Jezzie of course feeling she could offer assistance, of dealing with the lost infant and Gretchen, to her mother, secretly followed him to Samson’s tent. It was here that she watched in horror as her father learned what really had transpired. Samson’s brutal murder of Lola. Fredrick and Samson started to fight and were at each others throats. It suddenly got explosive and she witnessed their massively destructive fight and the killing of her father. Jezzie was so in shock and suddenly bereft of all the family she had ever had in this world, was frozen. She couldn’t move. Couldn’t race after the man who was getting away for ruining her life. Samson had fled into night and disappeared amongst the chaos.
The circus fell apart. Most people took off to join other acts or traveling troupes. Anything to get away from the taint of the Steelcoin Circus. Jezzie gathered all their valuables and savings that they had left and struck out on her own.
For three years she has wondered Cheliax joining various adventuring bands. Learning to become stronger, smarter and more skilled in her art, for one day she vowed to track down Samson and give him what he deserved. He was responsible for tearing her world asunder, for the murders of her family, his name would be forever burned into her memory. Samson Steelcoin.
It was during these travels that Jezzie ended up in Westcrown, a place where she was hopefully going to find justice for her family. Alas Westcrown had lost much of it’s luster from it’s glorious past, now a corrupt and dark place. Rumors were that Samson was here. If she could, she would take his life. She wasn’t evil and in fact she had a very good heart, but she strongly believed in an eye for an eye. His life for theirs. How could one death for two be that bad?
She joined a local street performer troupe to save up money and allow for her to hear the rumors and going-ons of the city. She needed to find him. If Samson was in Westcrown, he was here because scum like him could easily survive and hide here.
