This takes place in the midst of a battle.

Name: Lona Ulairi
Race: Human
Age: 22
Height: About 5 feet 1 inch
Appearance: She has long white blonde hair that she always wears braided around her head when she is around people. She has clear blue eyes and her skin is pale.
Rank: Soldier/courtier
Personality: she is usually quiet, but should not be mistaken for being shy. She has her own opinions and voices them if she feels it is necessary. She usually keeps to herself and her own business, not caring for the chit chatting of women around her. She can often be found out in the fields or gardens of Rohan reading books.
History: Born to a higher class couple in Rohan, she is neither royalty nor poor. She is a single child. Orphaned at age 15 when her parents died of the fever, her aunt and uncle took her in and raised her. She only owns a ring of her mothers, black silver that is inlaid with a single sapphire with tiny white diamonds surrounding the blue stone. She wears this ring on the middle finger of her left hand, but she wears it on a chain around her neck when she is in battle.
Weapons/skills: she is excellent with sword play, but she is also excelled in the training of hand to hand combat with no weapons.

Lona peered over the maps in her tent. She wondered at the movements of the Orc army, it was sporadic, no purpose seemed to come from their marching pattern. There were no villages where they were marching, just open fields and forests. It was strange to her. "Where could you be headed..." she muttered to herself.

The night was unusually warm for this time of year. Caran sat outside her tent, her red her cascading down her back in loose curls. In her hand she held her sword and in her other hand was a whetstone. She proceeded to sharpen her blade, all the while glancing around the camp. A sense of unease emitted from her fellow soldiers. They too had noticed the pattern, or lack of pattern to the orcs movements.

She swiped everything off the table in a rage. There had to be some reason to the orcs moving in this way! Yet she could not figure it out! The scouts had reported back, and they told that the OECD neither spoke nor gave any clue as to where they were going as they traveled. It was like they were on a silent mission. "Who sent you?" she muttered, her gaze was dark.

(OECD? Sorry if I am having a blonde moment :blush:)

Caran stiffened at the sound of items falling from a table nearby. Laying down her sword and whetsone she moved over to the tent where the disturbance had come from. "Everything alright in there?" she asked. She was cautious, not wanting to cause any more upset than what was already surrounding the camp.

(gah! Sorry...dumb iPod auto corrected...it's "Orcs" *facepalm*)

Lona looked up as a voice spoke through the tent flaps. "Aye. These orcs...it makes no sense." she then went to the entrance and pulled back the flaps. "I apologize for the disturbance."

(Ahh sorry hehe)

Caran nodded her head. "I understand. It is quite frustrating. Would you perhaps like a hand? They say two heads are better than one.." she mused as she glanced at Lona.

Lona thought for a minute, then nodded slowly. "Aye, that may be a good idea. I am Lona Ulairi, by the way." she dipped her head and motioned for Caran to follow her inside. She grabbed the map from the floor and spread it on the table once again. The time she spent on the puzzle was obvious by the markers pinned into the map and the lines drawn to represent the orcs traveling.

Caran bowed her head in return. "Nice to meet you Lona. My name is Caran Marvyre." She followed Lona inside and helped her to pick up her belongings. "What have you got so far?" she asked, her eyes taking in the map and the many markers trailing the Orc army's movements.

"They come from farther in the east, and travel in a zig zag pattern across the country. It seems as though they may even be avoiding every village! It does not make sense. Orcs destroy villages. Yet these orcs..." she paused "They travel as if on a mission, they are surprisingly keeping their head in it, never straying from it nor speaking of it. It's odd."

"Seems to me as though they are desperate not to draw attention to themselves. Whoever is controlling them has a surprise for everyone up their sleeves." She paced back and forth, deep in thought. "Do they seem to be heading in a particular direction? As if they are going to meet someone or find something? What is in the east? Where could they have come from?"

She shook her head slowly. "Those are all questions I have pondered and cannot find rhyme or reason for their strange traveling direction. They only keep marching." she could feel frustration building again. "Since they came from the east, there should be more of them still in the east as whoever is sending them needs to breed more for their troops. Some scouts should go East, and see if there is any clue there." she sat on the chair in front of the small desk. Her hand was stroking her chin as she thought.
