Unlike many half-orc, Zerelda’s parents conceived her under a loving relationship. Zerelda’s mother had been captured by orcs, who planned to sell her into slavery with a number of other people that had been captured. However, her father, a young orc at the time, found himself curious and intrigued by humans and by her mother in particular. Taking pity on the captured and abused humans, Zerelda’s father helped them escape after nightfall. He did this despite knowing he would be exiled from his tribe, if not killed. Thus, he travelled with the escaped humans to Grandstake. While traveling and during the time after settling in the new city, Zerelda’s mother took to her father and the pair actually married. Taking a plot of farmland from the government, they began their new life together, eventually bringing Zerelda into the world. Their daughter did not share their same desire to stay in the safety of Grandstake’s shadow. Instead, she dreamed constantly of traveling and learning. She would read books about adventure and other cultures. When she was of age, Zerelda set out from home, much to her parents dismay but with their support, to explore the world.
