The Profound Marked, the Elder Scrolls story
Hunter of beasts turned hunter of daedra
Product of strange parentage, she stands a tall 5’5, and commands a Dai-Katana like another limb, but wields all weapons imaginable with grace and exactitude.
What is known is that Daia used to hunt beasts, and seemingly left Valenwood, seeking to redeem herself in the eyes of her mother. She will not speak of her mother, or any of her family, except using her favored weapons, confiding these secrets in your vital organs.
She went with The Shadow-Blessed and aided in the vanquishing of Sorex and his master, the master of all Shadow magicks. It was here that she changed herself, or moreso, swapped the past version of herself for a different one, one that had made her tribe, and her mother, proud.
The “new” Daia Vanos never knew of the disappointment she was to her family, as she barely knew her family. She was disoriented for quite some time, but after understanding the switch between “shadows,” she joined the Knights of Stendarr, fighting Na-Rek with The Swamp-Champions, and then later joined The Marked in Rimmen, earning an Akaviri Dai-Katana for her help. A stolen one.
She had since been moved from the Knight of Stendarr keep near Rimmen, Eleswyr to the one on Stirk, west of Anvil, Cyrodiil. It was there, long ago, that Molag Bal almost won the fight between his realm and Tamriel, and then where Daia Vanos became the Knight of Mercy, replacing Corellius on the Council of Five.
