Appearance: Female, with an apparent age of 18 years. Redhead, with long hair and brown eyes.
Characteristic details: Tattoo of a blue flame in the palm of the left hand, looking like a flower. In the palm of the right hand, the design of a lamina (foil) in red crimson.
Biographical summary (known so far): She is the daughter of the high priestess of Sune named Pamela Blackstone (orphan) and a wizard, Arthur Blackstone (a lesser noble of waterdeep). Her parents met during her teens, amidst her group adventures as a beginner clergyman, and he, as aide to Arthur's teacher. The couple married a few years later, settling in waterdeep after Flamela was born. Arthur began to venture less, while Pamela turned more to the temple, working more inside of the waterdeep region before becoming a high priestess.
Flamela was raised by her parents with affection and dedication, and the love of art came through the exuberance of beauty and the talented artists who frequented Sune's temple, while literature, history and poetry came through the time she spent with her father at home, following and listening to his stories regarding his time of adventure.
However, at the age of 9, Flamela was informed that her father was really ill and had to travel to distant lands unexpectedly to be an ancient curse received in his time of adventure, without warning or details. because of this, she passed under the overprotective care of her mother, from which she encouraged her to become a priestess like her, keeping Flamela busy all day with lessons and other things inside of the temple. Flamela, much more active and tomboy, ended up trying to escape whenever she could, to wander the streets of waterdeep. on one of these occasions she was abducted and taken to another distant city, found two years later, being forced to work with a thieves' guild, committing robberies.
When she returned to her mother's care at the age of 11 and saw the world can become horrible, she began to respect the teachings ofSsune more, although she herself showed no affinity for clerical service, helping the temple between her studies in other ways. During her teenage days, Flamela had to deal with problems that accompany her to this day. Having to deal with her overprotective mother, wanting to marry her with other nobles and the fact that as she grew up, her apparence and redheaded hair became more and more similar to several pictures and paintings depicting Sune in the temple.
Her appearance was a problem, for she received too much attention from the faithful follower of the temple, trying to get he attention and praises all time, as well as during her walks by waterdeep, people who hated Sune or who wanted to take political advantage (within the people of her temple or in waterdeep) began to cause her a lot of social troubles, putting her discreetly to walk with a hood and purposely to use some common, normal clothes without the "fashion of the Sune", but immediately stopped every time she saw her mother.
At age 17, one of her mother's political rivals inside the temple told Flamela about her father's whereabouts. Influenced by his master, Arthur participated in a forbidden research, and after an accident, he started to gradually began to transform him into a lich, corrupting his sanity and thoughts, as well as his appearance. Her mother Pamela, unable to save him and love him too much to think of any other solution, she used her influence from the temple to ban him somewhere far from Cormyr, sealing him along with his master and keeping secret of her own daughter.
Discreetly, upon learning more details about her father and how her family lost her noble rights, she spent the next year going on short adventures, seeking to save objects of art or history in the name of Sune, while secretly planning to flee to Cormyr. After she was able to collect enough money for the travel and conveniently arrange the permissins orders on behalf of the temple, through one of her mother's political rivals inside of the temple, she traveled to Cormyr.
In Cormyr, she went on to retrieve art objects, literature or history in ruins, dungeons and other places, and started her training to face the undead, knowing that through the details she collected before, her father was already beyond of any salvation, becoming a monster, and maybe any day she need to deal with her own father.
In her time living in the temple, Flamela began to have a more academic and artistic education, focused on the valorization and recovery of art as a whole. For years, she has worked in the restoration of works of art, such as paintings and sculptures, to the point that her ability to copy and reproduce objects of art with almost perfection. Realizing that there is a great demand for the recovery of artistic and historical artifacts, she resumed her training to to specialize her skills in research and exploration of ruins, preparing herself adequately to deal with the removal of traps and dealing with dangerous, risk situations in her adventuring days around Waterdeep.
