Dísa

Disa1 doesn’t discuss her past much at all. There are many rumors that have circulated since she showed up three or four years ago and demanded a job in heavily accented Gaelic. Some say that she used to be a man but was stricken by a curse that changed her sex. Some say she’s descended from the jötnar of legend (as her native tongue appears to be akin to the Norse spoken by some residents of the covenant). All agree that any speculation as to her background should not be argued in her presence unless you greatly enjoy pain.

She is believed to come from the northern reaches of Scandinavia, where she learned to ride, swordfight, and shoot the bow. She arrived at the covenant with her own arms and armor, as well as a horse with full barding (which has since found its way into the covenant’s herd). Disa takes her duties very seriously (and makes it a point to look as fierce and intimidating as she can when she’s working). She can be very competitive at times, and will often find herself drawn into a game of “anything you can do I can do better,” even when it involves something that she’s not very good at.

Disa is a towering giant of a woman, easily dwarfing practically everyone else in the covenant, and her impressive musculature only adds to her intimidation factor. She is pale, with straw-blonde hair and blue eyes. Her "off-duty" clothing tends to consist of a home-spun tunic and breeches with soft leather boots…while hardly typical feminine wear, it does suit someone comfortable in the saddle.
