Physical Description:
Kurain Sandwalker is from a desert people, and it shows. Her skin is very dark and her eyes are narrow to the point of being squinty. She is very lean and is lacking in the plumpness most other people that didn't grow up in the desert tend to have. Her black hair is worn long and is generally tied into a topknot. Most people who study her get the impression of a tiger that could pounce at any moment.

Personality:
Kurain Sandwalker is a quiet person. She enjoys life and has no problem getting on with other people, but she never uses four words when two will do. This puts some people off, but it suits her companions, Vladimir Pedriski and Hagred Stonebite just fine. Some people have claimed to see a sadness hidden behind her eyes, and some who know her passingly have surmised that she might carry some guilt over not being there to help defend the caravan she was guarding when it was attacked and decimated by ogres. If this is true, then she has certainly turned that guilt outward and used it to fuel her rage against ogres everywhere.

Combat:
Kurain Sandwalker is the scout of her group. She spends as much time away from her friends on her own as she does with them. Her task is usually to locate an infestation of ogres or signs of their passing and report her findings back to the group so they can coordinate an attack. If she's caught alone, she's likely to run from a group of ogres, but if a single ogre or a small group of lesser opponents attacks her, she becomes a whirling dervish of bladed punches. With the group, she's likely to start off using her shortbow from a hidden position to gain sneak attack damage, but once her position is discovered, she wades into battle with stunning speed and ferocity. She will usually attempt to flank her opponents and make full attacks on them to maximize the damage her sneak attacks can deal.
