Background: Allisa Ilyara was born on Evermeet, a child of a moon elf and sun elf. While still a babe, her mother, Allyndra, left the island. They spent much of Allisa's childhood traveling the Sword Coast. They traveled to elven lands, first in the Wood of Sharp Teeth, then the Misty Forest, and eventually, the High Forest. As they journeyed back to the Wood of Sharp Teeth, the two were waylaid by bandits. Allyndra was killed, but before they could turn their attention to the young elfling, a young paladin named Elwin jumped to her rescue. An adult by human standards, he took Allisa with back to Amn, where she learned of Helm.

Decades later, Allisa finally convinced Elwin to allow her to train as a paladin of Helm. She carried out her duties as his squire, trained hard, and eventually became a paladin of the Vigilant One. She traveled with her mentor against the enemies of Amn, often fighting against the monster races in the wilds outside Athkatla. After years of faithful service, her mentor passed, and with his death, came a commander that was not as thrilled with the elven Watcher. He sent her north to Waterdeep to serve there before Elwin's funeral service had even taken place.

Once in Waterdeep, her prowess and dedication were quickly recognized, and after sixty years of faithful service, she was faced with the most difficult decision of her life. Save the lives of some villagers under attack by orcs, or follow the orders of her commander. Dedicated to Helm, she continued escorting the merchants towards Baldur's Gate. Once her mission was completed, she returned to the village, or rather, what was left of the village, to search for survivors. After burying the dead, she returned to Waterdeep to resign from the Order.

Allisa then traveled the Sword Coast offering help where she could, haunted by her decision to abandon the village. She repelled several orc raids on small villages, tossed down the ocassional bandit hideout, and rescued the daughter of a farmer that was taken by gnolls. When she heard of the troubles around Baldur's Gate and its immediate countryside, she packed what little she owned, and headed south.

Goals: Redeem herself, help the Sword Coast, help those in need, uphold Helm's dogma
Possible Plot-Hook Ideas and Misc Facts: Helm's followers in either Waterdeep or Athkatla may call on her for help, she finds another village under attack while on a mission of the church
