Exhibiting heightened magical potential from a young age, Eschiva was encouraged to walk the path of conjury by friends and relatives. She quickly tired of her Padjal instructors' stifling conservatism, however, and abandoned her arcane studies to become a lancer. Following in her beloved grandsire's footsteps, Eschiva took to spears far more readily than spells, and soon forged herself into one of the guild's finest combatants.
Eschiva's grandfather had been a follower of A-Towa-Cant, and even after the Padjal's passing, he continued to serve as a sentinel at one of the great mage's places of rest. Once old age claimed her grandsire, Eschiva would volunteer to shoulder his solemn duty.
