Here's a bit of her Origin Story; Meet Aadra. Aadra was set to marry the boy next door and she was proud of it, bragging to the other girls in their neighborhood. fast forward 10 years her soon to be husband ended up having dealings with pirates after his childhood friends were kidnapped and traded as slaves. On Aadra's wedding day a group of pirates raided the ceremony and murdered her husband and many others in their families. She then searched for her husband's crew to help her find her family's murderers avenge their deaths.
