BACKGROUND: Alyssa was born in Salasia, and was one of the only people to leave the idyllic city. She quickly bored of the secluded lifestyle and ventured out into the world to do healing. She would have been stopped, save for her friendship with Princess Emylia SiHalan, the leader of the Seri-Lin, who overlooked her departure.
Once she reached Rhutalath, she quickly made herself useful, offering her healing services to all those who required them, mostly for free. She even gained an apprenticeship with a healer woman named Ira. However, her secluded life had made her unaware of the Rhutalathians fear of magic, and pretty soon her magical arts were noticed. The Inquisition tracked her down and chased her through the streets of Ost-Firir, though she finally managed to escape by hiding in a hay-cart.
Fearful, and bewildered at the violence of the Inquisitors, she returned back to Iras House in Nyelle-Vista, beseeching the old woman to help her. The old woman promised she would, yet betrayed her. One night, whilst Alyssa was sleeping, the Inquisition came for her, having been alerted by the witch-hating Ira.
Alyssa was shipped off to Tol Goroth, where she was imprisoned for three months, frequently being questioned and forced to repent. She grew sullen, convinced that everyone outside Salasia was cold, fearful and full of hate. This changed, however, when new prisoners arrived, amongst them, Alf Mep. She quickly saw something in Mep she had missed- a love for life and an almost naive and simplistic approach to happiness.
Alyssa, freed by Meps friend Elestan, travelled with the group for a while, slowly falling in love with the shepherd. When the Quest was over, she travelled to the Vale of Unicorns, where she married him. She now rules as Lady of the Forest, though she often leaves to do good in the world.
