After wandering the Rogue Isles selling her blades Orithia decided that the attention she was getting from her exploits and the fact that she was so tall was becomming hard to manage. She stood out everywhere she went. She had developed her reflexes and her defensive skills but she needed more. She learned of a new skill called stealth and she found a teacher. She worked hard, at first going from shadow to shadow to keep out of sight. Then she realized she could use her willpower, the mind skills for fighting and defense taught to her by her mother. She applied her willpower to stealth and was more successful than she dreamed possible. Now she was able to go anywhere and only be seen when she wanted.
With this new found skill she found it much easier to get more lucrative missions. She was making more influential contacts. Then one day she met a group of like minded villians called Wolf Spiders. They were looking for help with a particularly difficult mission and she joined them. She enjoyed working with these battle wise professionals and voluntered to help them anytime. One thing led to another and she formally joined their group.
It was a lucrative arangement and served her purposes.
