Atop the Shoulders of Giants
"The wild takes us all, in the end."
Kurika is 5’7", with a light greenish tint to her brown skin, resulting in a very olive color and somewhat curly dark brown hair cut short. Most find her face a bit more striking that beautiful, with piercing yellowed eyes, strong nose, slightly tapered ears, and is exceptionally lithe and athletic, like most Orcs. She usually wears simple traveling clothes with hardened leather armor, and adorned with an expensive necklace. She is also occasionally decorated with elaborate blue/black face paint and carrying a bone and fetish adorned staff, though as merited has worn a nice dress etc.
She is sadly a small ivy shrub -

In her time of desperation, the great spirit answered her call for power, and in return for this blessing, Kurika is determined to, single-handedly if necessary, revive the worship of the Great Spirit and revival of the Shamans.
Kurika, having suffered cruelly at the hands of humans, and having been blessed by the Great Spirit, sees humans as a corruption of goblin culture. Goblins should be lifted up and returned to their true ways, at the expense of other creatures if necessary.
The Dark Woods have been the goblins home for centuries, and should be again. The primal lifestyle of those close to the earth is the holiest calling, and the destruction of industry and abomination.
Enslaved and fated as a mere brood mare, Kurika hates all who would capture and control others or any sort of dictatorship. While able and willing to dispense violence as she sits fit, Kurika will always oppose capture and imprisonment. Either you let them go or you kill them. Animals don’t take prisoners.
Kurika’s mother died in childbirth, and she doesn’t know who her father is or was. Bred to further breed gladiators for a Nada’athi noble, the power of the great spirit enabled her to escape at a young age. She ran into a family living at the edge of some woods doing a mix of farming, hunting and trapping to get by. A scared girl with some probably stolen gear might not be the most promising house guest, but they let her in anyway and she quickly proved herself useful and since she has become comfortable in the wilderness.
When she felt she’d recovered mentally and grew into her full strength as an adult orc, she set of to try to connect to the Great Spirit and enact the Spirit’s will, which she interprets to be the rise of the religion and goblin nation. As an itinerant preacher/healer she arrived in Jorintiat, only a short time before the outbreak of war.
